Kuala Lumpur

With the enhanced images of the closed circuit television (CCTV) system provided by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, police are now able to make progress on the suspects responsible for the kidnap and murder of 8-year-old Nurin Jazlin Jazimin.

The images and video footage was released yesterday, revealing a man in a long-sleeved t-shirt seated on his Modenas Kriss motorcycle in front of the Petaling Utama shoplot, removing his helmet and having a conversation on his mobile phone. When he had finished his call, he walked towards the shop and lifted the Diadora sports bag that was placed between the motorcycle seat and front basket. Then he carried the bag towards the building and left in his motorcycle without the bag.

It was not possible to see the man’s face or the motorcycle registration number clearly.

The next footage showed a woman in a red blouse and blue jeans walking around in front of the building. Three men pulled up at the scene in a silver Perodua Kenari and two of them came out. One was wearing a yellow shirt and the other a striped long-sleeved t-shirt. They were seen loitering around the area and chatting for a few minutes before they went back to the car. The woman also left with them.

The two videos were recorded on 16 September 2007 at 1pm, both an hour apart. The female photofit released on 2 October 2007 was based on the image of the woman in the red blouse and blue jeans.

Police are hoping that a Damansara Uptown taxi driver who drove past the area when the motorcyclist was at the scene could come forward to help them.

Police are asking anyone with information on the images, video footage and photofits to contact the police or send an SMS to the Rakan Cop hotline at 32728 or contact the investigation officer, Assistant Superintendent Loh Pei Pei, at 0193577008.

Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum also asked the public to report to the police immediately if and when they receive the post-mortem pictures of Nurin. He warned everyone who receive them not to circulate them further.

In addition to being charged under the Official Secrets Act, the person or persons responsible for leaking the pictures may face charges under the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission Act. The pictures have also been circulated via e-mail.

Those convicted of distributing illegal content via the Internet could be fined a maximum of RM50,000 or face up to one year in jail or both.
