KOTA KINABALU: A supermarket security guard who was present at the scene when Anthony Chang Kim Fook was shot only gave his statement to the police more than two months after the incident. 

Dood Doivin @ George said before he ended his shift duty at 8am on Oct 23 last year at the Chua Kah Seng Supermarket in Donggongon, Penampang, a man wearing a white shirt with long sleeves asked for his name and identity card number.  

However, he said, his statement was recorded by Deputy Supt Zulkifli Abdul Rahman from Bukit Aman on Jan 4. 

Dood, 55, also told the inquest that he saw a plainclothes policeman taking away a Samurai sword near Chang’s body minutes after the youth was fatally shot. 

According to him, he was standing between 5 to 6 metres from the body when he saw the policeman picking up the sword 

The policeman, who was wearing a dark-coloured ski cap, then placed the sword in the boot of a patrol vehicle nearby. 

To a question by Deputy Public Prosecutor Suhaimi Ibrahim, he said he knew the policeman. 

Dood, who had been working at the supermarket for three years, said just moments before the Samurai sword was removed, a man he knew as Edo (Saffrih Samijan) had approached Chang's body and then stepped over it. 

He said the man then kicked the sword, which was just next to the right side of the body. 

Dood said he had earlier been making his rounds when he heard a crowd gathering outside the Donggogon library – which is next to the supermarket. 

He then saw a Perodua Kenari arriving and at least two people alighted from the car and one of themran towards former state minister Datuk Conrad Mojuntin. 

Dood said he heard an explosive sound like fireworks. 

“I heard the second shot. After that I heard the sound of glass breaking and then a police car arrived with its blue lights flashing,” he said.
