Michael Garing fit to resume murder trial

Michael Garing fit to resume murder trial
Micheal said he assumed Tony had hit the Indian national because he heard him shout "serigala".

For two days in a row, he refused to attend his murder trial last week.

Following a psychiatric observation of Micheal Garing, 25, the court heard on Tuesday that he is mentally competent to continue with the trial.

Micheal appeared calm in the dock yesterday. Psychiatrist Dr Jerome Goh from the Institute of Mental Health testified that he had assessed Micheal's state of mind on Saturday and Monday and found him fit to advise his lawyers.

The trial had to be adjourned last Wednesday and Thursday after Micheal refused to budge from the holding area inside the Supreme Court building.
