'Rambo' rape hearing delayed

TEMERLOH: Serial rapist Rabidin Satir was told to make his defence later this month on a charge of raping and murdering a teenager here five years ago.

His hearing was pushed back to April 28 after the High Court here was told that deputy public prosecutor was ill and could not attend the trial yesterday.

High Court judge Justice Ab Karim Ab Rahman fixed the new date after he was informed about DPP Siti Hajar Mustaffa’s illness.

Rabidin, nicknamed Rambo Bentong, was supposed to testify under oath from the witness stand yesterday.

The 43-year-old ethnic Dusun from Tambunan, Sabah, is facing charges of raping and murdering Annie Kok Yin Cheng, 17.
