KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Conrad Mojuntin waited to be arrested on two separate occasions following the fatal shooting of Anthony Chang Kim Fook. 

Conrad waited for policemen to detain him at the scene after the shooting and again after lodging a report and surrendering his shotgun at the Penampang district police headquarters immediately after the incident. 

It was only after he returned home from the police station that he received a call from the then district police chief asking him to go to the police station at once. 

“I told him I wanted to take a bath first. After that, I went to the police station and met the OCPD. I was then arrested.” 

He thought he would have been detained after the shooting because there were policemen present at the scene outside the Donggongon library. 

The two policemen there, however, did not approach him and he decided to go to the Penampang police station with his sons and nephews. 

He said that at the police station, he handed over the shotgun and lodged a report over the shooting, 

“After that, I waited at the reception area of the police station but no one said anything and I told the policemen there I was going home to clean up first,” he said. 

Later in his testimony, Conrad said he had received threatening calls, one of which said his daughter would be kidnapped. 

“Even right before the inquest, someone called and threatened me,” he added.  

Deputy Public Prosecutor Suhaimi Ibrahim said he would ask police to investigate the threats.
