Adib Mohd Kassim

SHAH ALAM (Bernama): The Coroner's Court here on Tuesday (April 23) dismissed the application by the prosecution to recall two expert witnesses in the inquest into the death of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim.

Coroner Rofiah Mohamad said the witnesses involved, Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) forensic pathologist Dr Ahmad Hafizam Hasmi (24th witness) and HKL's Forensic Department head Datuk Dr Mohd Shah Mahmood (27th witness), had already been called to give their testimonies.

"Both of them had testified their findings on the clinical examinations and post-mortem conducted on the body of Muhammad Adib and their reports were submitted in court.

"They have also given their explanation to questions raised by the conducting officers, stakeholders and the court," she said on Tuesday (April 23).

She said no further submission was required for the experiment conducted on April 12 as the experiment was to back the findings of the 24th and 27th witnesses.

Muhammad Adib, a member of the Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Department's Emergency Medical Retrieval Service (EMRS) unit, was seriously injured during a riot at the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple, in USJ 25 on Nov 27 last year.

He died on Dec 17 at the National Heart Institute. - Bernama
