KUALA LUMPUR: The Sessions Court here was shown two video recordings of the injuries suffered by a 13-year-old girl with Down Syndrome, known as Bella, who was rescued by a witness.
The video recordings – with durations of six minutes 32 seconds, and 41 seconds – were played during examination-in-chief by deputy public prosecutor Zilfinaz Abbas at the trial of Rumah Bonda founder Siti Bainun Ahd Razali.
The videos were analysed by the 10th prosecution witness Insp Mior Samsul Abd Rahman of the Royal Malaysia Police Forensic Laboratory’s Audio Video Investigation Unit.
Earlier, Mior Samsul in his witness statement said that on July 22, 2021, he received an application for analysis related to the case and received the case items, namely an iPhone with a Maxis SIM card sent by Insp Suhaili Mahad.
“On Aug 9, 2021 at 9am, I carried out the process of extracting the required data from the phone using XRY software.
“The file that has been removed from the phone is a video duration of six minutes 32 seconds and another 41-second video,” he said.
The witness said the investigating officer wanted clarification on footage of injuries from the videos dated June 24, 2021.
“I have captured and analysed the images from the videos using software called Video Investigator. Once the analysis process is complete, I printed eight pages of the required images and prepared an analysis report,” he said.
Siti Bainun, 30, pleaded not guilty to two charges of neglect and abusing Bella, to the point of causing the victim to suffer physical and emotional injuries.
She is charged with committing the act at a condominium in Wangsa Maju between February and June 2021 under Section 31(1)(a) of the Child Act 2001, which provides for a maximum jail term of 20 years, or a fine of RM50,000, or both, on conviction. – Bernama
