Death in custody No.1805 inquest : Today’s proceedings

Posted on August 12, 2010


Counsels were supposed to submit this morning on what was the probable cause or causes of death, based on the evidence led in court.

Instead, they all ended up in the coroner’s chambers.

Visva wanted witnesses called previously to be re-called for further cross-examniation.

He also wanted a witness not previously called to the stand to now be called to give his evidence.

And Visva also wanted the fingerprints of Guna taken whilst at the Sentul police station, which had been alluded to previously, to now be tendered in evidence.

The coroner has made the necessary directions.

On 27th August, the inquest will resume and the police raiding team of 6 police officers will be recalled for further cross-examination by Visva.

On the same day, magistrate Nazran Mohd Sham, who was the first judicial officer to view the body of Guna at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital on the evening that he died, and who made the decision that no inquest was necessary, will be called to the witness stand to be examined.

Submissions have now been scheduled for 13th September, 2010.
