Altantuya Murder Trial.

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.
Bernama has the story here.
Also see Rocky's Bru here.

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.

Blogger BigDog has a take on the trial and those out to exploit the case as a political agenda. Read it here.

It's gonna be interesting to know how they managed to obtain the C$. Who filled in the requisition form, who endorsed it and who hit the blasting cap that blew that poor girl to kingdom come.
