Court to hear jointly charges against Hindraf 37

R. Surentheira Kumar, The Sun
KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 3, 2008): Thirty-seven of the 54 people charged separately in magistrate’s courts with taking part in last Nov 25 Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf)-organised unlawful assembly will have their case heard jointly beginning next month.

The cases, which came up for mention in the magistrate’s court here today, were transferred to a sessions court after the prosecution made the application for a joint trial. Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, who led an eight-member team, told judge Akhtar Tahir the application was made after the 37 men claimed trial to the two charges, for being a member of an unlawful assembly and the alternative charge of taking part in an unlawful assembly. Abdul Gani, when asked by Akhtar on the number of witnesses the prosecution planned to call, said between 15 and 16. He said they will be short witnesses and sought for an early date in February. Defence lawyer, N. Sivananthan, who appeared together with K. Lavinia, Irwin Lo and Ang Soon Roy, on behalf of the Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee’s Legal Aid Bureau told the judge the remaining 17 could not appear in court because they were yet to be served with the notice of yesterday’s hearing. The 54 were charged with taking part in the rally which converged at two locations in the city centre between 6am and 1pm on Nov 25. Akhtar also allowed the extension of their bail, ranging from RM1,500 to RM3,000, to continue until the trial date. He then fixed Feb 11 to 15 and March 3 to 6 to hear the case.
