SAPP lodges report, wants explanation on Tanduo trial 'missing witness'

KOTA KINABALU - Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) deputy president, Edward Dagul, today lodged a missing person report at the Karamunsing Police station, here, referring to the key witness of the trial of the armed intrusion at Tanduo, Lahad Datu.

According to the news, the prosecution has failed to locate and subpoena key witness and the last prosecution witness, SAC Zulkifli Hj Abd Aziz to give evidence at the trial.

SAC Zuklifli Hj Abd Aziz, who was the assistant chief of Special Branch of the Malaysian Police (PDRM), reported to have “served in Sabah for a long period, had great and specific knowledge on Sulu sultanate and had personal contacts in Southern Philippines and had handled all kidnapping cases in Sabah in terms of intelligence for the past 15 years and led the negotiations between Malaysia authorities and the Sulu gunmen’s leader in Kampung Tanduo.

Edward, in his statement, finds it amazing that the prosecution cannot find Encik Zulkifli who was a senior police officer who had retired only in November 2014.

He said that SAC Zulkifli would, like most people, have family, friends and associates who know where he can be found.

“In the interest of the public and to allay the fears of the people, we now lodge this “Missing Person Report”. We would like the police to locate Encik Zulkifli and let it be explained how is it that he could not be located and produced in court as a star witness, whether he is missing and whether crime has been committed in this missing person case,” Edward stressed.
