NOV 12: FEDERAL COURT TO HEAR MALAYSIAN GOVT’S BID FOR LEAVE TO APPEAL IN LAWSUIT BY ALTANTUYA’S FAMILY

PUTRAJAYA, Sept 6 (NNN-BERNAMA) — The Federal Court will hear on Nov 12 an application by the Malaysian government for leave to appeal against a Court of Appeal’s decision in reinstating it (the government) as a defendant in a RM100 million lawsuit filed by the family of the murdered Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu.

The date was fixed during a case management before deputy registrar Wan Fatimah Zaharah Wan Yussof Thursday.

Present at the proceedings were senior federal counsel Jasmee Hameeza Jaafar, appearing for the government, and lawyer Rayveni Asogan, representing Altantuya’s parents and her two sons.

Shaariibuu Setev, his wife Altantsetseg Sanjaa and Altantuya’s two sons, Mungunshagai Bayarjargal and Altanshagai Munkhtulga, filed the suit on June 4, 2007 claiming that Altantuya’s death had caused them mental and psychological trauma.

They had named two police officers, namely Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda and the government as defendants in the suit. — NNN-BERNAMA
