PETALING JAYA: The decision by the housing and local government ministry’s lawyer to withdraw from the inquest into the death of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim followed a directive from higher up, FMT has learnt.
A source said Syazlin Mansor, the lawyer the ministry appointed to represent the fire department and Adib’s family, received a letter telling her to withdraw from the inquest.
It also said that the ministry was against the decision, saying “it wanted to ensure justice for Adib”.
“But they had no choice but to abide by the directive,” the source aded.
Syazlin has refused comment.
Lawyer Syalin Mansor has been doing great guns in putting Hospital Kuala Lumpur’s Dr Ahmad Hafizam Hasmi into a corner by her deft and clever questioning, until the forensic expert complained he was 'humiliated' by Syalin.
I am suspicious who was the 'higher directive' who ordered Syalin to back off?
