Nazrin's family: "We just want the truth" [NSTTV]

KUALA LUMPUR: Cradle Fund chief executive Nazrin Hassan's family wants the prosecution to appeal the Shah Alam High court's decision to free Samirah Muzaffar and two teenagers accused of his muder.

His elder brother Dr Abdul Aziz Hassan said while the family was resigned to the verdict by High Court Judge Datuk Ab Karim Ab Rahman, they still wanted the decision to be reviewed by the higher courts.

Dr Abdul Aziz said he would personally ask for an inquest of his brother's death if the prosecution did not file for an appeal.

"We will request the prosecution to file an appeal in the name of justice.

"This is not an issue of us not being satisfied with the decision but we just want to seek the truth.

"InshaAllah, the truth will prevail. This is our hope," he said when met outside the court.

He said many questions regarding his brother's death remain unanswered.

Dr Abdul Aziz was seen walking out of the courtroom with his sister Che Elainee Che Hassan, 65, who was held by other family members.

Che Elainee said the family just wanted the truth to be revealed.

"We are not going after anybody or want anyone to be sent to the gallows.

"We are just going for the truth," she said.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that the prosecution will refer to the Attorney-General's Chambers for the next course of action.

Samirah, 47, and two teenagers as well as an Indonesian woman, Eka Wahyu Lestari, who is still at large, were charged with the murder of Nazrin on Mac 12, 2019.

However, the trio were acquitted of the charge - under Section 302 of the Penal Code, today.
