Cambodian ordered to enter defence for murder of two women and child

A Cambodian national was ordered by the Court of Appeal here today to enter his defence for the murder of two women and a child, also Cambodians, in an oil palm plantation in Selangor in 2015.

A three-member bench comprising Justices Datuk Vazeer Alam Mydin Meera, Datuk Wira Ahmad Nasfy Yasin and Datuk Hashim Hamzah allowed the prosecution’s appeal to set aside a High Court decision in acquitting and discharging hawker Usuf Matli on the murder charges.

In delivering the unanimous decision, Justice Vazeer Alam said the High Court judge erred when he discharged and acquitted Usuf for the murder Salamah Yusof, Fatimas Aly and Fatimas’s son Asnawi Ahmad.
