High Court Dismisses Razak Baginda's Bail Application
SHAH ALAM, Jan 19 (Bernama) -- The High Court Friday dismissed an application for bail by political analyst Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda who is charged with abetting the murder of a Mongolian model last year.
With the application struck out, Abdul Razak will be in jail pending hearing of the case which has been fixed for next year.
Judge Datuk K.N. Segara rejected the application on the grounds that Abdul Razak did not submit his medical report and that the offence facing him was a serious one.
Last Dec 14, the same judge had struck out Abdul Razak's oral application for bail and ordered the accused to file in a formal application.
The court fixed today to hear the application by Abdul Razak who was represented by counsel Wong Kin Kheong.
Abdul Razak, 46, is charged with abetting two policemen from the Bukit Aman Special Action Unit in the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, 28, at the 10th floor, Bangunan Getah Asli in Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, between 9.54am and 11.O5am on Oct 18 last year.
