The RM2 million corruption trial of former Federal Territories minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor did not proceed as scheduled today as he has taken medical leave because of a knee injury.
Lawyer Tan Hock Chuan told High Court judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan that Tengku Adnan is on a six days’ medical leave from Friday after he injured his right knee in a “nasty fall”.
Tan asked for a recess today and tomorrow.
Deputy public prosecutor Julia Ibrahim did not object.
Tengku Adnan had been scheduled to be cross-examined by Julia today.
The court then set Feb 18 to 20 and March 4 to 5 for the continuation of the trial.
Tengku Adnan was seen falling from the witness dock after a misstep down the steps from the raised platform last Friday after testifying in his own defence in this trial.
Tan said his client had to undergo a CT scan examination after the fall and results show that there was no abnormality.
