KUALA LUMPUR - Thai pathologist Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand is expected to be roped in as an expert witness in the civil suit filed by the late Teoh Beng Hock's family against the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the Government.

Their lead counsel Gobind Singh Deo said they were in the process of calling Dr Pornthip to give evidence in the civil suit.

"We are still making the arrangements. It is still a fresh trial," he after meeting High Court judge Justice Rosnaini Saub in chambers.

He said Teoh's family had filed 11 witness statements for their case while the Attorney-General's Chambers had filed 10 for the hearing.

He said the court had maintained the trial dates from Nov 19 to 21.

Senior Federal Counsel Nur Aqilah Ishak acted for the MACC and the Government.

MACC and the Government are contending that the death of the former political secretary to Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah was due to his own negligence.

They said Teoh's fiancee Soh Cher Wei had no right to take legal action against them.
