Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) forensic expert Dr Ahmad Hafizam today demonstrated with an Emergency Medical Rescue Services (EMRS) van what could have happened to fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim.
The van was specially brought to the Shah Alam Court.
It was, however, not the same vehicle involved in the incident on November 27 last year.
The demonstration which started at about 10.30am was to strengthen the theory established by Hafizam, the 24th witness, in his findings on the broken rib injuries suffered by Adib after he was hit by the EMRS van during the riot at the Seafield temple.
It is understood that the EMRS van reversed at a speed of 17 km/h, similar to the situation on the night of the incident.
The demonstration was held at the basement car park of the court complex, in the presence of coroner Rofiah Mohamad, conducting officer Faten Hadni Khairuddin and lawyers for Adib’s family and the housing and local government ministry.
Hafizam also said Adib was not pulled out from the front passenger seat.
He will continue to be cross-examined by the lawyers representing the ministry and Adib’s family.
