Initially, Deputy Public Prosecutor Wan Shaharuddin told the court that the prosecution expects to call 80 to 90 witnesses to testify in the trial. However, during case management on March 29, the DPP told the court that some 125 prosecution witnesses, including several State Exco Members, will be placed on standby to testify.
“The prosecution has also handed over all the documents relating to the case to the defence,” said DPP Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin. “Some of the documents that were handed over include a telephone forensics report, a financial analysis report from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and expert reports on the projects involved.”
Justice must be done. And justice must be seen to be done.
