KOTA KINABALU: A man kicked a Samurai sword away from Anthony Chang Kim Fook’s body after the latter was fatally shot on Oct 23 last year. 

Petrus Mojuntin, 29, said he saw the man, Edo, using his leg to push away the sword that was on the right side of Anthony’s body. 

His cousin Gregory Mojuntin, 37, had told the inquest on Monday that Petrus has seen a man kicking away the sword from Anthony's body.  

Petrus said Edo kicked the sword towards the pavement in front of the Donggongon library in Penampang. 

“I saw a policeman standing there and did not think much about it,” Petrus, a son of former state minister Datuk Conrad Mojuntin, told the inquest. 

Asked by Deputy Public Prosecutor Suhaimi Ibrahim, Petrus said moments earlier he and Conrad, who was carrying a shotgun, and their relatives had gathered outside the library after a futile search for his younger brother Moses. 

He said a speeding car had stopped near them in front of the library and three to four persons, including Edo and Anthony, came out. 

He said Edo was holding an axe-like weapon while Anthony was carrying a Samurai sword as they charged towards the Mojuntins.  

“I saw my father firing a warning shot. They still came forward. I was looking at the guy charging towards me when I heard the second shot and saw the deceased fall,” Petrus added. 

He said he then saw blood oozing from Anthony's mouth. 

Petrus said as he was looking at the body, the car that Anthony had arrived in sped off.  

Petrus said immediately after the shooting, he heard his father saying that they should go to the police station. 

He said he was about to enter his car when he saw Edo going to Anthony’s body and kicking away the Samurai sword.
