TEMERLOH: Four men including two siblings from a royal family were acquitted and released by the High Court here yesterday of a charge of double murder about four years ago. 

Justice Abdul Halim Aman delivered the acquittal order after Deputy Public Prosecutor Ahmad Rosli Mohd Sham made the request . 

DPP Ahmad Rosli had informed the court that due to the absence of a main prosecution witness, it was difficult to convict the  

four accused. 

Teh Teong Hai, 28, Tengku Khairulnizam Tengku Hamid, 29, Tengku Hazrul Shah, 32, and Mohd Zaidi Yaakop, 31, were alleged to have killed Loh Cheng Hye and Ti Chee Khew at a stretch of the Genting Highlands-Kuala Lumpur road on June 19, 2003. 

However, their release was shortlived as police re-arrested three of the accused under the Emergency Ordinance.
