In response to the recent incident when kidnap-cum-murder victim Nurin Jazlin Jazimin’s post-mortem photographs were circulated online and through mobile phones, Nurin’s father Jazimin Abdul Jalil has lodged a police report at the Dang Wangi station and will take legal action against those responsible for the leak.
Police have not ruled out the possibility that policemen and hospital staff could have been involved in the leak. They have warned that they would not hesitate to invoke the Official Secrets Act (OSA) or Section 292 and Section 293 of the Penal Code against offenders.
Authorities have advised the public to refrain from spreading e-mail containing such pictures.
Police have released the 23-year-old Indonesian woman picked up at a night market in Nilai on 29 September 2007. After being detained for 12 days at the Petaling Jaya police headquarters, police have not found enough evidence to charge her, thus she was released and handed over to the Immigration Department for deportation.
Investigations revealed that there was no proof of SMS being sent from the woman’s SIM card to Nurin’s father and the police. When she was taken to the Petaling Jaya Sessions Court, she swallowed the card. Doctors at the University Malaya Medical Center managed to retrieve the card after eight days.
