3 lawyers withdraw from representing Siti Bainun, proceedings postponed

The defence trial of Rumah Bonda founder Siti Bainun Ahd Razali, who was charged with neglecting and abusing a 13-year-old Down syndrome girl known as Bella, has been postponed to tomorrow after three of her lawyers withdrew themselves from representing her in the case.

Sessions Court Judge Izralizam Sanusi allowed the postponement after Siti Bainun’s lead defence counsel, Nur’Aminahtul Mardiah Md Nor, told the court that she and her firm had decided to withdraw from the case after finding out that two other lawyers in the defence team – Mohammad Farhan Maaruf and Nur Ellena Mohamed Razif – had also submitted their notice of withdrawal from the case.
