SHAH ALAM: The High Court here was told that the trace of blood found on a fragment of a board, matched the DNA profile of blood specimen “A” on the fast track analysis (FTA) card labelled “Nazrin bin Hassan”.
S Jayasilan, 42, a chemist at the Chemistry Department told the court that the trace of blood on the case exhibit tagged “MN9” matched the DNA profile of blood specimen “A”, which belonged to Nazrin, who was the Cradle chief executive officer at the time of his death.
The 43rd prosecution witness said the analysis was conducted after he received the exhibit from a police officer in September 2018.
“This shows that the DNA that has been identified is from the same source (blood trace from specimen ‘A’),” he said when reading a witness statement before Judge Ab Karim Ab Rahman.
Jayasilan was testifying at the trial of Samirah Muzaffar, 46, a former senior executive, and two teenagers, now aged 19 and 16, as well as an Indonesian woman, Eka Wahyu Lestari, who is still at large.
They are all charged with murdering Nazrin at a house in Mutiara Damansara, between 11.30pm on June 13, 2018, and 4am the following day.
Jayasilan said besides the “MN9” exhibit, there were four other exhibits, namely cotton buds tagged “J3”, “J4”, “J8” and “J14” that had blood traces on them and had been found to match the DNA profile of the blood specimen labelled “Nazrin bin Hassan”.
The trial continues tomorrow.
