BAGAN DATOH: The presiding judge, prosecution and defence teams in the murder case of Deputy Public Prosecution Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais made a site visit to the Hutan Melintang police station near here.

Arriving at about 12.17pm, High Court judge Justice Azman Abdullah spent about 15 minutes examining a charred vehicle in which Morais was believed to have been murdered.

Justice Azman, who was accompanied by members of the prosecution team including DPP Saiful Edris Zainuddin and the defence counsel of the seven accused, was seen checking both the engine and chassis numbers of the vehicle said to be the deceased’s Proton Perdana.

He also briefly spoke to investigating officer Insp Mohd Nizam Ahmad who had recovered the burnt vehicle from an oil palm plantation at Kampung Sungai Samak in Hutan Melintang last September.

Also present at the evidence storage compound of the police station were G. Gunasekaran, 48, R. Dinishwaran, 24, A. K. Thinesh Kumar, 23, M. Vishwanath, 26, S. Nimalan, 23, and S. Ravichandaran, 35, accused of murdering Morais and also army pathologist Kol Dr R. Kunaseegaran, 53, who is charged with abetting the six in the murder.

The group proceeded to the plantation where they inspected some melted glass shards at the spot where the vehicle was found and then to a river at KM46 Jalan Klang-Teluk Intan in Kuala Selangor where a grinder and items belonging to Morais were apparently discarded.

The offence was allegedly committed at Jalan Dutamas 1 and at the plantation.

Morais, who was with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission at the time of his death, was reported missing on Sept 4 last year.

His remains were found in a cemented drum at Persiaran Subang Mewah, Subang Jaya on Sept 16 last year.
