2nd Altantuya killer to seek review of Federal Court’s guilty verdict


(TMI) – Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri, one of two former police commandos sentenced to death for the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, will apply for a review of the Federal Court’s guilty verdict.

Azilah’s lawyer, Datuk Hazman Ahmad, said the application was being finalised and would be filed soon although there was no deadline.

“There are some valid grounds to review the ruling by the five-man bench,” he told The Malaysian Insider when asked if Azilah had applied to the Pardons Board to get his death sentence commuted to life imprisonment.

He did not elaborate on the grounds of Azilah’s review application. The former policeman is now on death row.

Hazman said the review application would have to be disposed of before any representation was made to the Pardons Board.
