DNS Test Results On Altantuya's Son To Be Out Saturday
The Mongolian consul in Malaysia, Datuk Syed Abdul Rahman Al-Habshi said the test would be conducted at the National Hospital of Ulan Bator (NHUB) Wednesday morning.
"Our special team comprising Federal CID deputy director (II) Datuk Syed Ismail Syed Azizan, Kuala Lumpur deputy serious crimes chief DSP Gan Tack Guan and a forensic specialist Dr Azreen from Kuala Lumpur, will witness the test to ensure the test is conducted fairly.
"NHUB officials told me that it would take about two or three days to conduct a thorough DNA test. I have learnt the final result of the test is very vital for the prosecution on the June trial, to determine the real father of Altanshagai," he told Bernama here Monday.
Abdul Rahman said the team would be leaving this midnight and his counterpart in Ulan Bator had already been informed of the visit.
"A Mongolian Interpol officer informed me this morning that our special team will be receiving a VIP treat. There, both parties will have discussion on the DNA test process and other related matters.
"Even Dr Shaariibuu Setev (Altantuya's father) called me yesterday and promised me that he will give his full cooperation to our special team in order to expedite the DNA test," Abdul Rahman said.
On Sunday, Bernama reported Altanshagai's health condition was turning for the worse as he was suffering from a severe brain disease which had caused his head to be swollen.
Altantuya was murdered and her body blown to bits by explosives at a secondary forest near the Subang Dam in Puncak Alam, Shah Alam last November.
Meanwhile on Friday, the Shah Alam High Court decided to bring forward the murder case trial to June 4 this year and 25 days have been set aside for the hearing, after the same court had originally fixed March 10 next year for the trial because of a heavy backlog of cases.
C/Insp Azilah Hadri, 30, and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, 35, have been charged with murdering Altantuya while a prominent local political analyst, Abdul Razak Baginda, 46, has been charged with abetment.
The trio are alleged to have conspired to commit the murder at Bangunan Getah Asli in Jalan Ampang here between 9.45am and 11.05am on Oct 18 last year.
