MORE PICS – Day 56,57 & 58 Altantuya Murder Trial; Toll CCTV Footage Confirms Sirul Jeep; Driver Unidentified; Calls & SMSes Matched Data Recorded

Malaysiakini has a related story on the Lingam Tape on

Lingam clip: Gov't to assess panel's report soon Nov 13, 07 2:19pm but has kept away from the Altantuya Murder Trial for quite sometime now. The Trial is now crawling. One week 2 days with trial and now postponed to next Monday 18th Nov 07.

It is of interest to note in day 56, 57 & 58 of the trial, the main prosecution witnesses are Cybersecurity Malaysia's forensic digital senior analyst Mohd Zabri Aidil Talib, 28 and digital forensics department head Aswami Fadillah Mohd Ariffin. And this is the SAME company tasked by the Government to determine the authenticity of the Lingam Video Clip.(See H E RE on related previous post) And they have suggested in the report to the Panel that “there is a possibility the Clip is NOT Authentic

Another interesting revelation on Day 57 is that this private company (is funded by the Government, see Below, Day 57) and “he was neither gazetted to testify as an expert nor was the agency accredited by any independent body.
So the report submitted to the panel cannot be reliable and considered independent as they are “under duress” when funded by the Government. The cabinet is going to discuss it today according to the PM Abdullah.

ABOVE: PM Abdiullah said on Tuesday: We hope we are able to discuss it tomorrow. Tonight I will read through it"

Another question. Has the Panel met to discuss the additional 10 sec Clip provided by Anwar Ibrahim in his second segment? DPM Najib said on the same day that the "panel will have to look into it"?
And has Cyber Security been consulted about this 2nd installment?

Even in this trial, the Head of department Aswami has mentioned that it was a unique case in ALL the 180 cases they had investigated so far. And probably the verification of the Lingam tape is also new to them and someone should seriously question whether this company has the “expertise” and are qualify to do so. And also to find out what method and on what basis they used to gauge the Video Clip Authenticity.
In this trial, their so called expert just enhance the images captured on CCTV and confirmed that Sirul Jeep did pass through the
Kota Damansara toll a few times. And they just “zoom in” and try to see the “driver”. How to see the driver if the images are recorded on low resolution with low pixels? You don’t need to be “forensic” expert to do this; anyone with computer knowledge and with any photo editor can do it.
What the other head of Department did was to extract the data of the calls and SMSes from the respective Simm cards and just compare those provided by the Cell phone companies and for the same day and time they should of course match. Think about it how much they charge for providing these simple services

Toll CCTV recording confirmed that the Jeep belongs to Sirul Azhar Oma

The 49th prosecution witnessCybersecurity Malaysia's forensic digital senior analyst Mohd Zabri Aidil Talib, 28 (ABOVE Left), told the court that his analysis of the CCTV recording at Kota Damansara Toll Plaza confirmed that the Jeep which passed by the road belongs to the 2nd accused Sirul Azhar Omar. He said he produced several high resolution still images from the CCTV recordings to capture its unique similarities using the layer technique. His investigations confirmed that the footages of the front light group and back lights were of the Jeep belonging to Sirul Azhar.

ABOVE & BELOW: The prominent characteristics of Sirul's 4-WD matched but no matter how deep you zoom, it is impossible to see the driver as the image resolution is low.

However the 4 photos on the CCTV recording were recorded at different times on the touch and go. The first photo showed a difference of 7 s between the CCTV recording and the Touch-n-Go on 7.14pm on Oct 19 last year. The 2nd photo showed a difference of 24 s on the same date at 8.48pm.(See BELOW) The vehicle passed through the same toll at 9.57pm and 12.01 am on the following day.
Trial continues on Monday (12th Nov)

No Suvs Resembling Sirul's Passed Thru Toll Plaza, Court Told

SHAH ALAM, Nov 7 (Bernama) -- No four-wheel-drive vehicles resembling one belonging to Cpl Sirul Azhar Umar passed through the Kota Damansara toll plaza on the night Altantuya Shaariibu was believed murdered. Cybersecurity Malaysia's forensic digital senior analyst Mohd Zabri Aidil Talib, 28, told the High Court this here today. He said he could detect the vehicle's movement on Oct 19, 2006 at 7.14pm and 40 seconds using "forensic video CCTV" which was capable of showing a clear image and identify the characteristics of a vehicle. By using the equipment also, he could see the windscreen stickers, spotlights, fog lamps and roof of the vehicle which were consistent with those of Sirul's jeep, he said.

Those characteristics were not found on other vehicles recorded by the same camera, he said. "I found two four-wheel-drive vehicles which passed through the same toll plaza which were not consistent and did not match Sirul's," he said during the examination-in-chief by Deputy Public Prosecutor Tun Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah. Zabri is the 49th prosecution witness in the trial for the murder of the 28-year-old Mongolian woman which entered its 56th day today.

Sirul, 36, and another policeman from the Special Action Unit -- C/Insp Azilah Hadri, 31, -- are alleged to have murdered her in a jungle in Bukit Raja here at between 10pm on Oct 19 last year and 1am the next day. Political analyst Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda, 47, is charged with betting them.
The trial before Justice Datuk Mohd Zaki Md Yasin continues on Monday.

I couldn’t see driver’s face, says analyst

SHAH ALAM: The driver of a Suzuki Jimny four-wheel drive could not be seen in the surveillance camera recordings captured at the Kota Damansara toll plaza on the night Altantuya Shaariibuu disappeared. CyberSecurity Malaysia senior digital forensics analyst Mohd Zabri Aidil Talib, 28, said he had used the latest technology to try to “zoom in” on the driver. “At the moment, this is the latest technology. It depends on the situation. In this case, I tried but I was not successful,” he said on Day 57 of the trial.

Earlier, Mohd Zabri (ABOVE) said the agency, formerly known as National ICT Security and Emergency Response or Niser, was a private company funded by the Government under the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry. To questions from Hazman Ahmad, counsel for C/Insp Azilah Hadri, the witness said he was neither gazetted to testify as an expert nor was the agency accredited by any independent body.

CyberSecurity Malaysia digital forensics department head Aswami Fadillah Mohd Ariffin (ABOVE) said that the police handed him 14 cellphones with their SIM cards, two additional SIM cards and two laptops on several occasions last year. Police had instructed him to extract data from the items. Aswami, 36, said that apart from extracting the data, he was also instructed in May this year to correlate the data with call logs obtained from telecommunications companies. Asked by DPP Tun Abd Majid Tun Hamzah if the date and time of the extracted SMSes matched the phone logs perfectly, the witness replied that it was not a 100% match.

He further added this investigation is very unique in all the 180 cases he had done. The Police asked to look specifically at the dates from 17th to 19th October 2006 but he went further to 22nd October
His testimony continues today. (13th Nov)
