KOTA KINABALU: A policewoman who took down the report lodged by Datuk Conrad Mojuntin told the inquest she was uncertain why the former state minister had not been detained immediately after telling police he had shot someone.
Kons Enja Anak Ayum said Conrad lodged the report at 5.10am on Oct 23 and also surrendered a gun.
According to her, she had told her supervisor L/Kpl Norma Zaini about his admission even before taking down his report about the shooting incident.
She said L/Kpl Norma had immediately contacted Penampang OCPD Deputy Supt Awang Anak Suanda, senior investigating officer Chief Insp Zunaidi Jusoh and his assistant, a Sjn David.
Questioned by Deputy Public Prosecutor Suhaimi Ibrahim, Kons Enja said she was not sure if there was an initial directive for Conrad not to be arrested.
Kons Enja said L/Kpl Norma and her were among the personnel on duty at the Penampang police district headquarters in the early morning hours of Oct 23 and there were two other police reports lodged at that time in connection with the shooting.
She said a Chee Yee Fatt lodged the first one at 4.20am that he had been assaulted near the Public Bank in Donggongon.
She added that 30 minutes later, a Lim Fan Chai then lodged a report that he had been threatened by several people who had come to his house looking for his brother, called Titi (Lim Fan Shiong).
Kons Enja said a person had also come to the district headquarters to state that he had been stabbed with a metal object but his report was not taken then as he had been asked to get treatment first.
To another question from Suhaimi, she said there were no unusual reports through radio from the only police patrol vehicle in Penampang that morning.
