KUALA LUMPUR, 11 Feb 2009: Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) Director Datuk Dr Zaininah Mohd Zain today denied that Changkat Jering assemblyperson Mohd Osman Jailu had been admitted to the hospital recently.
“Changkat Jering assemblyperson Mohd Osman Jailu was never admitted to HKL,” she told Bernama today, in response to the claim by Mohd Osman’s sister that her brother failed to turn up for his corruption trial at the Magistrate’s Court in Ipoh yesterday as he was admitted in the HKL.
According to Norliza, her brother was admitted to the intensive care unit on 9 Feb night. However, Norliza failed to produce any medical certificate as she claimed that the doctors were still observing Mohd Osman’s condition.
Mohd Osman was issued with a warrant of arrest after he failed to turn up for his corruption trial.
Magistrate Sharmila Abdul Samad issued the order yesterday after Mohd Osman’s sister told the court her brother had been admitted to hospital in Kuala Lumpur due to a heart ailment, but she failed to produce a medical certificate. — Bernama
