Sessions Court here today with the murder of a fish pond operator.
The three SMART members — Syazwan Saat, 29, Iskandar Zulkarnain Abdul Manaf, 28, and Mohd Idris Abu Bakar, 40 — and Lim Chun Jie, 24, nodded their head after the charge was read to them before judge Aizatul Akmal Maharani.
However, no plea was recorded. They were jointly charged with murdering Alias Mat Noor, 52, at Lombong Tembatan Banjir, Lingkaran Putrajaya, Cyberjaya here between 10 pm and 11.55 pm on July 7 this year.
