SHAH ALAM: No other four-wheel-drive vehicles resembling the one belonging to Cpl Sirul Azhar Umar passed through the Kota Damansara toll plaza on the night Altantuya Shaariibu was believed to have been murdered. 

Cybersecurity Malaysia’s forensic digital senior analyst Mohd Zabri Aidil Talib, 28, told the High Court this here on Wednesday. 

He said he could detect the vehicle’s movement on Oct 19, 2006 at 7.14pm and 40 seconds using “forensic video CCTV” which was capable of showing a clear image and identifying the characteristics of a vehicle. 

By using the equipment also, he could see the windscreen stickers, spotlights, fog lamps and roof of the vehicle which were consistent with those of Sirul’s jeep, he said. 

Those characteristics were not found on other vehicles recorded by the same camera, he said. 

“I found two four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicles which passed through the same toll plaza which were not consistent and did not match Sirul’s,” he said during examination by Deputy Public Prosecutor Tun Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah. 

Zabri is the 49th prosecution witness in the 56th day of trial for the murder of the 28-year-old Mongolian woman. 

Sirul, 36, and another policeman from the Special Action UnitC/Insp Azilah Hadri, 31, are alleged to have murdered her in a jungle in Bukit Raja here at between 10pm on Oct 19 last year and 1am the next day. 

Political analyst Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda, 47, is charged with abetting them. 

The trial before Justice Datuk Mohd Zaki Md Yasin continues on Monday. -- Bernama
