The are charged with committing the offence at Ladang Gadong, Jalan Tanjong

Layang, Tanjung Sepat in Banting between 8.30pm and 9.45pm on Aug 30, 2010.

Yesterday, a three-member panel led by Justice Datuk Seri Abu Samah Nordin

unanimously allowed the applications brought by the four accused for an interim

order to stay the trial pending disposal of their appeal.

Last Monday (July 23), the High Court rejected the four accused''s

application to subpoena DPPs Ishak Mohd Yusoff, Saiful Edris Zainuddin and Idham

Abd. Ghani, to appear as witnesses.

The move to call the DPPs as witnesses was made by the defence in the trial

in seeking to expunge two exhibits presented by the three DPPs at the end of the

prosecution''s case in an attempt to discredit two farm workers, U.Suresh and K.

Sarawanan, who were called as prosecution witnesses in the trial but had

allegedly turned hostile.

The two exhibits were notes of proceedings at the Telok Datok magistrate''s

court where Suresh and Sarawanan pleaded guilty to a charge of disposing of

evidence related to the murder and sentenced to seven years'' jail each.
