SHAH ALAM: The Sessions Court here set Oct 12 for the trial of a police corporal charged with causing the death of a teenager in a shooting incident.
Judge Latifah Mohd Tahar set 12 days from Oct 12 and also Nov 9-11 for the trial after deputy public prosecutor Mohd Dusuki Mokhtar informed the court that he had handed 38 documents, including the post-mortem report, to the defence.
Mohd Dusuki said the prosecution would be calling 15 witnesses.
In the dock is Jenain Subi, 48, charged with causing the death of Aminulrasyid Amzah, 14, in Jalan Tarian 11/2 , Section 11, between 1.10am and 2am on April 26.
The charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder carries a maximum 30 years jail and liability of a fine on conviction.
Jenain was represented by counsel Salim Bashir while counsel Karpal Singh held a watching brief for Aminulrashyid’s family.
Present were Aminulrasyid’s sister, Nor Azura, and mother, Norsiah Mohamad, and Monalisa Mokhtar, a representative of the Parent-Teacher Association of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Seksyen 9.
Karpal told reporters that he would write to the Attorney-General’s Chambers to enquire on the status of Azamuddin Omar, the teenager who was in the car driven by Aminulrasyid at the time of the incident.
“We are worried that there is no development regarding the case of the key witness (Azamuddin) although he had been called to give his statement at Bukit Aman,” he said.
On May 20, Azamuddin’s brother, Muhamad Hafizzudin, lodged a police report accusing the police of attempted murder for shooting at the car which the two teenagers were travelling in. -- Bernama
