KOTA KINABALU: A man was seen kicking a Samurai sword away from the body of Anthony Chang Kim Fook just moments after he was fatally shot in the early hours of Oct 23 last year, the inquest was told yesterday. 

Gregory Mojuntin, a nephew of former state minister Datuk Conrad Mojuntin, said that his cousin Petrus noticed the man they knew as Edo or Saffrih Samijan kicking the sword away from Anthony’s body. 

Gregory, 37, a secondary schoolteacher, said this occurred as he was walking to where his cousin Petrus Mojuntin was standing, after taking a look at Anthony’s body that was sprawled on the road in front of the Donggongon library in Penampang. 

Earlier, to a question by Deputy Public Prosecutor Suhaimi Ibrahim, Gregory, the 20th person to testify, said he was in Conrad’s house for a family gathering when his cousin’s friend Alexander Chuan informed them that Conrad’s sons Moses and Junior had been stabbed in a brawl. 

He said that he, Conrad and a few relatives got into their cars and headed for the SJD Cafe pub in Donggongon. 

Gregory said he met a policeman and told him that his cousins had been stabbed. They then walked to the cafe. 

He said some policemen were already there and asked Conrad to go home as the fight was over. 

Gregory said that after a while, he, Conrad and their relatives decided to go to the homes of Lim Fan Shiong and Saffrih whom they believed were involved in the fight. 

After failing to find them, they returned to the Donggongon library. 

Upon arriving, Gregory said he saw a Perodua Kenari stopping near them. 

Gregory said he saw three people armed with sticks and swords getting down. He said Conrad got down from a Land Rover. 

He said one of the three men shouted “Serang! (Attack!)” as they ran towards where Conrad and his sons were standing. 

“I heard a shot and ducked and then heard another shot,” said Gregory, adding that after the shooting, Conrad sat in the Land Rover and appeared sad.
