Mohd Isa changes legal team


KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad has changed his legal team for his criminal breach of trust and graft case involving RM3.09mil, the High Court heard.

His new counsel, Datuk Salehuddin Saidin, informed Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali yesterday.

Salehuddin, who would replace Ridha Abdah Subri and Lavinia Kumaraendran, said a representation letter had been submitted to the Attorney General’s Chambers.

“The two lawyers will no longer be handling this case, ” he said.

The prosecution team, led by Deputy Public Prosecutor Afzainizam Abdul Hamid, confirmed the matter.

Justice Mohd Nazlan fixed Sept 23 as the next case management and set Sept 20 as the delivery date for the prosecution to send all documents on the case to the defence, including any statements by witnesses.

He also told the defence to inform the court should there be any updates on the representation.

Earlier, the trial dates were fixed from Oct 7 to 9,14 to 18, and 21 to 25.

Mohd Isa, 70, was charged on Dec 14 last year with one count of criminal breach of trust and nine counts of corruption at the Sessions Court, before the case was moved to the High Court.
