SHAH ALAM: A fireman who had on Tuesday (Oct 1) testified that he spotted holes on the back of deceased Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Nazrin Hassan's head now says that the injuries were gashes.
Stanley Sigau Nyalang said this when he was questioned by DPP Wan Shahida Wan Omar on Friday (Oct 4).
On Tuesday, Stanley testified in Nazrin's murder trial at the High Court here before judge Datuk Ab Karim Ab Rahman that he had spotted holes on the back of Nazrin's head.
He also said that the wounds looked as if they were from the deceased being beaten.
"You said the holes looked like he was beaten. How do you know it was from being beaten?
"Why did you say it was like holes because of being beaten?" Wan Shahida asked Friday.
Stanley replied: "It's actually not holes but gashes that were about 3cm to 4cm."
Wan Shahida then asked Stanley if he had checked if the wounds were indeed gashes.
"I noticed the injuries when I was standing near the victim’s head but I did not touch it, ’’ Stanley replied, adding that he did not spot any other injuries on the victim.
Nazrin’s widow Samirah Muzaffar, 44, and two teenagers, aged 14 and 17, as well as Indonesian national Eka Wahyu Lestari, who is still at large, are accused of murdering Nazrin, 47, at a house in Mutiara Damansara, between 11.30pm on June 13,2018, and 4am on June 14,2018.
Later in the afternoon, former policewoman Nur Ronal Ardes Amir testified that she accompanied Samirah three times upstairs to the master bedroom after the fire was put out.
She said the first time was when Samirah wanted to see Nazrin’s remains, and the second time was when she wanted to remove valuables from the room.
However, Nur Ronal Ardes, who resigned from the police force late last year, said Samirah, was not allowed to enter the room by Fire and Rescue Department officers who were present.
The hearing continues on Nov 8.
