UPDATE: The case has been postponed to June 18.
Justice Mohd Zaki Md Yassin fixed the date after allowing a postponement sought by deputy public prosecutor Abdul Majid Hamzah who had just taken over the case.
Abdul Majid told the court at the start of the trial that he was assigned the case by the Attorney-General's Chambers yesterday and needed time to look through the statements of more than 100 witnesses.

This high profile trial begins today at High Court 3 in Shah Alam.
Mongolian Altantuya Shaaribuu was killed and her body blown up with explosives in a secluded spot in a forest area in Puncak Alam, Shah Alam in October last year.
On trial for her murder are political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda, 46, Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri, 30 and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, 35.
Undoubtedly this case has attracted so much attention for obvious reasons.
