MORE PICS–OFF the HOOK for MURDER; JUDGE: No Prima Facie Case; Questionable and Unsatisfactory Police Investigations; Post-mortem by Hospital Assistan

= = = = = = = UPDATE Jan 26 07; 19:28pm

These are the typical "
knee-jerk" reactions of the higher ups. The IGP will ask for an investigation and the minister will ask for the reports and will they have the will to to take disciplinary actions. The "spirit is willing, but the body is not"

Is this one of those “closed-one-eye” case when well fed, they “see, hear & speak no evil for the concerned parties. The IGP is carrying out an investigation under the able crime buster Christopher Wan to see if all the Ipoh police actions were “deliberate

And after the investigation, will the case be reopened?

Officers Responsible For Shoddy Police Probes May Get The Boot

PETALING JAYA, Jan 26 (Bernama) -- Police investigating officers who do a shoddy job leading to their cases getting thrown out by the courts risk being fired from the force, said Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum. "We will not compromise with officers who fail to conduct proper investigations into murder cases," he told reporters after opening a seminar for directors and senior management in the security industry here Friday. He said this when asked to comment on the botched investigation into the murder of a 21-year-old engineering student in 2003 which led to the case to be thrown out by the Ipoh High Court last Wednesday.

Five suspects in the case, one of them the son of a former Ipoh Mayor, were acquitted without their defence being called. Mohd Johari said the investigating officers in the case would be brought before the Police's Disciplinary Board if found to have failed in carrying out their duties properly. "It is pathetic ... this is not the first high profile murder case to be thrown out of court... I want Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan to submit a report on it to the ministry as soon as possible," he said. He said that he would have a special meeting with Musa and other Bukit Aman senior directors this Wednesday to discuss and identify weaknesses in the handling of high profile murder cases.

"I want to know if elements like corruption are hampering investigations," he added. Meanwhile, Musa, when met at the World Customs Day celebrations at the Customs Complex in Kelana Jaya here, said police were still investigating the matter (the case that was thrown out in Ipoh) including on claims that the investigating officer had only joined the force when entrusted with the job. "This is a serious matter, so give us time to investigate properly," he added.

Musa Orders Comprehensive Probe Into 'Man Datuk' Case


MELAKA, Jan 25 (Bernama) -- Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan has ordered Bukit Aman CID Director Datuk Christopher Wan Soo Kee to investigate weaknesses in a murder case thrown out by the Ipoh High Court Wednesday. He said a comprehensive probe would be conducted into the investigation papers and all officers involved. "I want feedbacks on what are the weaknesses relating to the investigation.

"We'll see in a month's time. We want to know whether the weaknesses are deliberate so that the case becomes weak when presented in court," he said and added that firm action would be taken on officers responsible for the weaknesses. He was commenting on comments made by Justice Datuk V.T. Singham Wednesday when acquitting five people charged with the 2003 murder of 21-year-old student Mohd Hosni Fadzli Mohd Amin without calling for their defence. One of the accused was former Ipoh Mayor's son, Azman Ismail, 25, who was known as "Man Datuk". The other four were Mohd Hafiz Ibrahim, 22; Mohd Shafiq Hazren Mohd Salleh, 23; Mohd Faizal Radzali, 25; and Mohd Rizal Abu Hassan, 21.

Singham was reported to have said the prosecution had "failed miserably" to prove a prima facie case against them and that the entire investigation by the police on the case was questionable and conducted in a very unsatisfactory manner. Musa said: "I respect his comments and he has the right to make the comments. He was the one hearing the case."

On the reaction by the victim's family to the acquittal, he said: "Of course they would feel it was unfair. They want justice. My symphathy goes to them." Earlier, Musa attended a convention on crime prevention at the Melaka International Trade Centre Thursday. The convention, organised by the Royal Malaysia Police, was opened by Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam.

In IPOH, the victim's father, Mohd Amin Mohd Ibrahim, 54, said he was disappointed with the handling of the case by the police. Together with lawyer R. Jegatheesa, he would meet the deputy public prosecutor involved in the trial to get a clearer picture on what had happened which led to judge Singham saying "unsatisfactory police investigations". "I had been patient following the trial over the past two years and was confident that the people charged with murdering my son will receive suitable punishment but yesterday, I was shocked when the judge said the officer investigating the case was a cadet officer. "This is not a case of stealing chicken eggs. Why the police appointed a cadet officer who had been in the force only for two months to handle a serious crime like this?" he said. The result could be different if a more experience officer were to handle his son's murder, said Mohd Amin who is a lorry driver.

Only Surgeons And Specialists Can Conduct Post-Mortem

PETALING JAYA, Jan 25 (Bernama) -- Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said Thursday post-mortems in hospitals can only be done by surgeons and specialists and not by hospital assistants or attendants. He said surgeons and specialists were responsible for conducting the internal part in any operation but it was normal practice for hospital assistants to do the initial opening of the abdomen.

"If you go to a surgical ward and see how patients are operated, the opening up of the abdomen can also be conducted by a junior doctor. But to say that the post-mortem is conducted by an attendant is not true," he told reporters after appearing on the "Wanita Hari Ini" programme over TV3. Dr Chua was asked to comment on reports that hospital assistants or attendants were allowed to cut open corpses on the instruction of the pathologist as stated by a witness in the murder trial of a 21-year-old engineering student in Ipoh.
Ipoh High Court Judge Datuk V.T. Singham, in his remarks in
Ipoh Wednesday, called into question the practice of instructing hospital assistants or attendants to carry out post-mortems in the presence of a pathologist= = = = = = == = = =

Is this another “high profile” murder case that the Judge can declare “no case” on flimsy police investigation and flimsy non-mentioned of name in the charge sheet & post-mortem by a Hospital assistant? Even the accused & those involved were “surprised” by the Judge’s decision and took sometime to react. Were they NOT involved in bashing up the victim? Why were they let off the hook? Is the late evidence in admissible? Is the hospital assistant certification of the dead body’s injuries any different from that done by a pathologist? Not even a man-slaughter amended charge? Well ask the ONLY Judge involved in this case. He has the final say! And this is Malaysia Boleh - "Malayisan Justice"- violence and murder can be excused and dismissed on grounds of "technicalities".

When you kill a man, you believe that you kill him forever. The hunter is forced to emotionally identify with its prey. So to kill is to be killed. The balance of life sustains all.
There is never any justification for violence. There is no justification for hatred. There is no justification for murder. Those who indulge in violence for whatever reason are themselves changed, and the purity of their purpose adultered.

And what would happened to those inept police investigators and DPP –transfer out again or stay put to wait for another case?

Questionable Police Investigation, Datuk's Son And Four Others Acquitted Of Murder

ABOVE & BELOW: The magnificient Ipoh High Court building

IPOH, Jan 24 (Bernama) -- A son of former Ipoh Mayor and four others were acquitted and discharged by the High Court here of the charge of murdering a college student in 2003 due to failure of the prosecution to prove a prima facie case against the accused.

ABOVE & BELOW: The accused (Azman Ismail Shahbodin in white, also known as Man Datuk) arriving in court & "hands-free" (BELOW) with just the police holding on to your arm - no need handcuffs. Is it so much more firendlier in a small town?

Judge Datuk V.T.Singham acquitted and discharged Azman Ismail Shahbodin, Mohd Shafiq Azreen Mohd Salleh, Mohd Hafiz Ibrahim, Mohd Faizal Radzali and Mohamad Rizal Abu Hassan without calling for their defence. They were charged together with Mohd Nizam Ariffin, who is still at large, with the murder of Mohd Hosni Fadzli Mohd Amin at Ikhwan Auto, No 19, Hala Rapat Baru 20 of the Kinta Light Industrial Area here between 3am and 10am on Dec 22, 2003. Singham, when reading his written judgment, said the entire investigation by the police on the case was questionable and conducted in a very unsatisfactory manner. "Among them was why the police took up to six days to go to the location where the murder was alleged to have taken place to carry out forensic tests. "Another was on the post-mortem which was conducted by a hospital assistant instead of a pathologist," he added. He said the trial of the case was also the weirdest conducted by any Deputy Public Prosecutor. "The prosecution declined to name the other suspect, who is still at large, as mentioned in the charge sheet for reasons only known to him although investigations clearly indicated that he was the main culprit," he added. Hearing of the case took 54 days during which 38 witnesses were called to testify. At Wednesday's proceedings, Singam also dismissed an application, the third, by DPP Mohd Dusuki Mohktar to include an additional charge for kidnap or abduction against the accused. Had the court allowed the application, a new trial would have to be held.

ABOVE & BELOW: The accuseds were pleasantly "surprise" could not beleived "their ears" when the Judge announced the verdict "no case" for them.

Azman, who is also known as Man Datuk is represented by counsel Naran Singh while Mohd Hafiz by lawyer Tun Ammar Aziz, Mohd Shafiq Azreen (lawyer Aris Rizal Christopher Fernando), Mohd Faizal (lawyer Gurbachan Singh) and Mohamad Rizal (Ravinair Ramanaidu). The decision must have stunned the accused for they had remained in the dock and it was only after Singham pronounced the judgment on their acquittal and discharge for the second time did they begin to move out from the dock.

Family members of all the accused, including former Ipoh Mayor Datuk Ismail Shahbodin, were at the court Wednesday.

Also present was the victim's father and when approached by reporters, he said he accepted the verdict.
