In response to criticism that the police have given up on the murder case of 8-year-old Nurin Jazlin, MCA Public Service and Complaints Bureau chief Datuk Michael Chong has offered a RM20,000 reward to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of the killer.
Nurin was kidnapped on 20 August 2007 and later found sexually assaulted and murdered. Her body was found in a bag which was dropped off by a motorcyclist in Petaling Jaya a month later.
Chong appealed to this person to come forward with information leading to the arrest of the killer in exchange for the reward money. He assured that they can meet without police interference.
On Monday, Nurin’s father Jazimin Abdul Jalil said “Maybe if I was a kerabat diraja (royalty) or if Nurin was a police officer’s daughter, then they (police) might have treated the case differently. Since I’m just an ordinary person, they are not bothered about finding the culprit.”
