PORT KLANG: The Court of Appeal should have returned the murder case of Altantuya Shaariibuu to the High Court for retrial.
Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim's personal view echoed that of former Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, who also opined that a retrial was more appropriate.
"If the Court of Appeal find the process not right, they can take a more pro-active step by returning the case to the High Court," Khalid told reporters at the Port Klang state constituency Hari Raya open house on Sunday.
On Friday, the Court of Appeal discharged and acquitted policemen Kpl Sirul Azhar Umar and C/Insp Azilah Hadri for murdering Mongolian Altantuya.
The three-man panel unanimously set aside the death sentences imposed on them by the Shah Alam High Court in 2009.
Zaid was reported saying that if a retrial was ordered by the Court of Appeal, it would allow both sides to another look at the case.
