KUALA LUMPUR: Businessman Kenneth Lee Fook Mun @ Omar Iskandar, who allegedly shot an accountant three years ago, will know his fate on June 30. 

The date was fixed after the High Court heard submissions from the prosecution and defence at the end of Lee’s defence case. 

Lee, a grandson of former finance minister Tun H.S. Lee, was accused of shooting Lee Good Yew, 54, in Jalan Istana Baru on Aug 22, 2000. 

He was charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which carries the mandatory death sentence upon conviction. 

Lee was ordered to enter his defence on Nov 9, 2001.  

He testified that he was not a violent person and could not remember shooting the deceased that day.  

Lee claimed he was suffering from a hypoglycaemic attack (abnormally low sugar level in the blood) when he allegedly shot the accountant.
