SHAH ALAM: The High Court yesterday stayed the proceedings in the Banting murder trial to a date to be fixed following an order from the Court of Appeal.
On Thursday, the Court of Appeal had granted the stay pending an appeal by the defence team against judge Datuk Akhtar Tahir's decision on Monday dismissing their application to call three deputy public prosecutors to the witness stand.
The defence had applied to call deputy public prosecutors Ishak Mohd Yusoff, Saiful Edris Zainudin and Idham Abd Ghani as witnesses in their bid to challenge two documents which the DPPs had tendered in court.
The documents were the notes of proceedings of two others who were found guilty of disposing evidence in the Banting murders.
A.K. Sarawanan and U. Suresh were charged with disposing of evidence at the Telok Datok magistrate's court in October 2010.
They are currently serving a 20-year jail sentence each.
