Hazairin Iskandar was provoked by Mohd Shah Saemin to the point where he lost self control and stabbed him, James Trevallion, representing Iskandar, told the Supreme Court today.
Mr Saemin, known as Shah, died after he was attacked by Iskandar and his son Andrew outside his Leichhardt flat in Sydney’s inner west on the night of February 21, 2010.
The court heard Iskandar’s wife Nita was having an affair with Mr Saemin, who worked with her in the Malaysian consulate, and that rumours of their relationship were spreading….
Ms Shead said Iskandar and his son lay in wait for Mr Saemin outside his flat before crashing their hired car into his car and pursuing him through the streets.
The court heard Iskandar stabbed Mr Saemin at least four times to the upper body with a knife while his son struck him repeatedly with a hammer.
If I asked my son to help me kill someone, I hope he would have the sense to say “Get real, Dad.”
But at least they can be together in prison.
