Memory card containing post mortem photos of DPM's son-in-law was corrupted

KUALA LUMPUR: A policeman, who took photographs during the post mortem of the Deputy Prime Minister's son-in-law, said the memory card containing the images was corrupted and thus could not be transferred to a Compact Disc (CD).

However, the photographs printed before the memory card was corrupted were submitted as case exhibits to the court today.

Cpl Rosaidi Mat Zudin, a police supervisor attached with the criminal investigation department at Pantai police station, said he was informed that there was a death at 9.05pm, on June 1, 2016.

He said he took 49 pictures throughout the post mortem held between 1am and 4.25am on June 2.

He told Deputy Public Prosecutor Rozaliana Zakaria during examination-in-chief that he had printed the pictures from the memory card before it was found corrupted.

Rosaidi was testifying at the trial of Dr Ting Teck Chin, 37, who was charged with causing the death of Syed Alman Zain Syed Alwi, 44.

Ting, a gynaecologist is alleged to have committed the offence at Pusat Pakar Pergigian Imperial (Imperial Dental Specialist Centre), Lot 62 and 64, Jalan Telawi, Bangsar Baru, Brickfields at about 6pm and 9.05pm on June 1, last year.

Ting is charged under section 304 (b) for culpable homicide not amounting to murder, which is punishable with 10 years jail or a fine, or both. Lawyer Dev Kumaraendra represented the accused.

Syed Alman was married to Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s eldest daughter Datuk Nurulhidayah, 37.

Earlier, Rosaidi said he was informed of a death involving “orang kenamaan” (well known person). He said a lot of people were going in and out of the emergency unit of University Malaya Medical Centre.

“I was controlling the area to ensure people are not occupying the emergency area,” he said.

Two other witnesses; Constable Norhasan Asari and Lance Corporal Mohamad Zahir Zainuddin also testified. About 43 witnesses are expected to testify in the trial, which will continue on Tuesday, before Sessions judge Zaman Mohd Noor.
