A RECORDING of an abusive phone call made to the father of the murdered Singh siblings from Fiji in the i-Taukei language was played in the Supreme Court of Brisbane.
Jasveer Jitendra Singh, who worked for Vijay Singh in the Fiji-based family motor parts business and who was also Neelma Singh's teenage lover took the witness stand.
Neelma, 24, and her siblings Kunal, 18, and Sidhi, 12, were found dead at Bridgeman Downs residence on April 21 in 2003.
Courier Mail reported that the court heard Mr Vijay's wife Shirley and his daughter Neelma had gone to Fiji in October 2003, and discovered that Mr Vijay was in a relationship with a married woman named Karun Singh who had worked at a night club.
The court heard that it was while the women were in Fiji that Mr Vijay who was in Brisbane received an abusive message on his phone's answering system.
Accused Max Sica's lawyer Sam Di Carlo asked Mr Jasveer to listen to a tape to see if he recognised the voices and tell the court what some of Fijian words meant.
The court heard a male voice say on the tape he was calling from Fiji and wanted to speak with Mr Vijay.
On repeated occasions, the caller told Mr Vijay to "pick up the f....ing phone".
"You f.... with my family I am going to f.... with your family.
"I know where they live," the voice said.
The court heard two men on the tape call Mr Vijay swear words and what they would do.
Mr Di Carlo asked Mr Jasveer if he thought the callers were Indian Fijian or native Fijians.
Mr Jasveer said they sounded like native Fijians but he was not sure and would be guessing. Mr Di Carlo asked Mr Jasveer if he could translate a sentence.
"It means they will both die....those two will die or something similar to that," Mr Jasveer replied.
He said to be fair, Mr Di Carlo should get a Fijian interpreter to explain what was being said. Mr Di Carlo asked if the callers sounded like bouncers who worked with Mr Vijay's then girlfriend Karun.
Mr Jasveer said he did know and he had only ever spoken to the bouncers on brief occasions.
He also said he was never shown an e-mail from Neelma to Sica in which Neelma wanted her father bashed and hurt badly.
He also said he never heard Neelma say her father had threatened to cut her to pieces.
Mr Jasveer said he had no recollection of getting phone calls from Mr Vijay who was angry with his wife and daughter.
In re-examination, Mr Jasveer told prosecutor Michael Byrne that between January and March 2003, he was still talking with Neelma Singh and that they intended to marry.
