(The Malaysian Insider) – Charles Morais, who wanted a second post-mortem conducted on the remains of his brother, murdered deputy public prosecutor Kevin Morais, has officially abandoned the move, said his lawyer Americk Sidhu.

“We have filed a notice of discontinuance because it is academic,” Americk told The Malaysian Insider.

As such, he said there would not be any case management in the Kuala Lumpur High Court tomorrow.

On November 23, Charles filed an application to conduct a second post-mortem on Kevin’s remains as the outcome of the first procedure was vague.

However, on the same day, Charles’s estranged brother Richard had claimed the remains of Kevin from the Kuala Lumpur hospital.

It is believed that the remains were cremated soon after as Richard had also obtained a burial permit.
