Nurin’s Parents Accept DNA and Dental Tests, Man Suspect on Motorcycle Wanted

22 September 2007
Kuala Lumpur

The brutal sexual assault and murder of 8-year-old Nurin from Wangsa Maju has left her family in great grief as her body was laid to rest at the Taman Ibu Kota Muslim cemetery. Her father, taxi-driver Jazimin Abdul Jalil and several family members, including his eldest brother Jasni, were again given confirmation from the Petaling Jaya district police headquarters that the DNA test was conclusive and even the dental record from Nurin’s school showed a 95% probability match.

Although 33-year-old Jazimin has finally accepted the facts presented by the police, he is pleading for the authorities to find the culprit and bring justice to his daughter.

The family, including mother Norazian Bistamin, aged 35, and sisters Jazshira, aged 9, Jazrina, aged 6 and 18-month-old Jazlisa, claimed Nurin’s body from the Kuala Lumpur Hospital mortuary at 11:20am yesterday. She was buried at the Danau Kota Muslim burial ground in Setapak at 2:25pm.

Meanwhile, Federal CID director Commissioner Datuk Christopher Wan Soo Kee said police are looking carefully into the two separate cases of young girls who were abducted and molested in Kampung Baru a few months ago, which they suspect are linked to Nurin’s murder suspect. A man on a motorcycle was seen taking the girls away before their private parts were stuffed with foreign objects. They were later released by the suspect.

Using the closed circuit television footage from a book centre along PJS 1/48 in Petaling Jaya Utama, police now have a good description on the suspect, a man who was getting off from a motorcycle and walking with a sports bag towards the staircase where Nurin’s body was found. The couple who left in a silver Perodua Kenari are also wanted by the police.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said police would also consider if Nurin’s parents had been negligent in letting her visit the night market alone on 20 August 2007. They may face charges under the Child Protection Act 2001 if evidence is found.

Musa also said police had increased patrols in several areas in the city, including Chow Kit, Kampung Baru and Masjid India.

At a press conference at the Malaysia Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) office on Saturday, Social Action Initiative Foundation executive deputy chairman Tan Sri Robert Phang offered RM5,000 to anyone who can provide information on Nurin Jazlin Jazimin’s murderer.

Please contact the MCPF at 03-22601954 if you have such relevant information.

Datuk Michael Chong from the MCA Public Complaints and Services Department said that the RM20,000 cash reward still stands as long as Nurin’s murderer is yet to be found. If you have information that will lead to the arrest of the murderer, please call Chong’s assistant Mohd Ubaydi Mohd Noh at 016-636 7333.
