KUALA LUMPUR: The trial of businessman SM Faisal SM Nasimuddin, who is charged with injuring his ex-wife Emilia Hanafi, that was scheduled today at the magistrates’ court here has been postponed to Nov 25.

SM Faisal’s lawyer Jagjit Singh told the court that the lead counsel for the businessman, Akberdin Abdul Kader, was unable to attend today because he was having respiratory problems and submitted the lawyer’s medical certificate (MC) to the court.

“Akberdin was scheduled to question the prosecution’s sixth witness, Elisa Nani Hanafi, who was called to give her statement today. However, I humbly request the court for the case to be postponed,” Jagjit said, before justice Nadia Othman.

Earlier, deputy public prosecutor Zahida Zakaria said the prosecution was prepared to hear the testimony of Elisa, the sister of Emilia.
