KUALA LUMPUR: Murder accused Koh Kim Teck refused to allow a doctor to take his skin specimen when he was brought to Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, the High Court heard.
Dr Mohamad Aznool Haidy Ahsorori, 33, said Koh, 51, did not give him the consent as required by the hospital on Sept 30, adding that he had only agreed to a blood sample being taken.
He said he had also asked Resty Agpalo and Mohamad Najib Zulkifli for blood and skin samples, as instructed by investigating officer Asst Supt Nor Omar Sapi.
Dr Mohamad, who is the prosecution's 25th witness, said Agpalo and Najib had given him their consent to take both samples that were handed to ASP Noh Omar the same day.
He agreed with defence counsel V. Sithambaram's contention that Koh did not want his skin tissue sample taken because Koh had a skin problem.
He told defence counsel Gobind Singh Deo that he did not examine Najib for injuries but questioned him about his physical state.
Asked if Najib had sustained bruises due to police assault during his detention, Dr Mohamad said he did not know about it nor was he was aware if Najib had been down with severe food poisoning then.
Asst Supt Sapawi Mat Salleh, 43, said he found a belt and a pile of steel chains in the backyard of Koh's neighbour's house on Sept 28, and seized the items.
Another witness, Mutiara International Grammar School admission executive Aini Azmi, said Xu Jian Huang enrolled in the school on Jan 10, 2003, with Koh's name recorded as his guardian.
Aini said she did not know why Jian Huang had been absent four times after Sept 24, till she heard of his death.
The hearing continues.
