The SD "Could Be Sub Judice"?


"In the declaration, Raja Petra claimed that the trio – one of them a prominent woman – were present at the scene during the murder of the Mongolian translator in October 2006.
Copies of the two-paged declaration together with the identity of the trio have been posted on various blog sites.
In the document, Raja Petra said he was “reliably informed” of these allegations.
Musa said the matter could be sub judice as the Altantuya murder case was still being heard.
He also said Raja Petra must be “brave enough to face the consequences if he is bold enough” to make the allegations.

Meanwhile, the Attorney-General’s Chambers has lodged a police report against Raja Petra over the statutory declaration.
Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail said the allegations were “highly defamatory” and if found untrue, those making the allegations would have to face the consequences."

Just for some info - Can a lawyer out there help me out on this matter?

If I'm not mistaken, somebody did declare once that - there "aren't anybody else involved" in the murder case?
Is that "contempt of court" or "sub judice" or whatever?

I'm not so familiar with the "law/courts" on these matters ... so excuse me, okay)
