Minister Nazri Aziz explains to Parliament the delay in the appeal of the two cops convicted for murder.
KUALA LUMPUR: The appeal of the two policemen convicted in the murder of Altantuya Sharriibuu is delayed by the High Court judge’s need for more time to complete his judgment, the Dewan Rakyat was told.
“Given that the judgment has not been filed, the appeal record is not complete,” Minister in the Prime Minister Department Mohd Nazri Aziz said in a written reply dated June 23 to Karpal Singh (DAP-Batu Gelugor).
“Hence,” he added, “the date for trial with the Court of Appeal cannot be determined as yet.”
He said the large amounts of statement notes and evidences presented in the trial prevented the judge from filing his judgment more speedily.
