SHAH ALAM: The prosecution in the murder case of Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd CEO Nazrin Hassan has been ordered to hand over photographs taken from the first post-mortem report to the defence on July 15.

High Court judge Ab Karim Ab Rahman made the order after Samirah Muzaffar’s counsel, Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, told the court that the defence was not satisfied with the quality of the images given by the prosecution.

The judge also said the prosecution, represented by Selangor state prosecution director Salim [email protected], must inform the court if it could not submit the photographs by that date.

Earlier, Shafee told the court that the defence had been asking for the original photographs since April.

“We want the original photographs as those given to us were photostats which are not clear and blurred. We want to send the photos to the pathologist we have appointed, for a second opinion,” he submitted.

Salim said the prosecution would ask the investigating officer for the photos. He also told the court that the prosecution had today handed over a number of documents, including reports by the chemist, the Energy Commission and the police to the defence.

The trial will commence in September.

Meanwhile, counsel S Suresh, who is representing one of the two juveniles accused in the case, requested for the witness list.

However, Salim said the full list of prosecution witnesses would only be given at the commencement of the trial.

The court set July 26 for case management.
