SHAH ALAM: The Sessions Court here has set Oct 12 for the trial of a police corporal charged with causing the death of a teenager in a shooting incident.
Judge Latifah Mohd Tahar set 12 days from Oct 12 and also Nov 9-11 for the trial after deputy public prosecutor Mohd Dusuki Mokhtar informed the court that he had handed 38 documents, including the post-mortem report, to the defence.
Mohd Dusuki said the prosecution would be calling 15 witnesses.
Jenain Subi, 48, is charged with causing the death of Aminulrasyid Amzah, 14, in Jalan Tarian 11/2 , Section 11, between 1.10am and 2am on April 26.
The charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder provides for a maximum 30 years’ jail and liability of a fine upon conviction.
Jenain was represented by counsel Salim Bashir while counsel Karpal Singh held a watching brief for Aminulrasyid’s family.
Karpal later told reporters that he would write to the Attorney-General’s Chambers to enquire the status of Azamuddin Omar, the teenager who was in the car driven by Aminulrasyid at the time of the shooting.
“We are worried that there is no development regarding the case of the key witness (Azamuddin) although he had been called to give his statement at Bukit Aman,” he said. – Bernama
