Datuk lawyer's 'killer fortune'
Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

KUALA LUMPUR: The Datuk lawyer in the centre of the hideous quadruple slaughters in Banting has a personal wealth of more than RM100 million, it emerged today.
His younger brother who is also a suspect in the kill and burn atrocity could have amassed up to RM20 million, sources said.
The estimated fortunes of the brothers were based on their bank accounts that the authorities know of and the properties they owned.
The police’s anti-money laundering division have got an order from the Attorney-General’s Chambers to freeze the assets, including bank accounts, of the two lawyers.
Millions are reportedly in single accounts, said the source. Checks are underway to ascertain if they had parked money in offshore banks.
While it is known that they own several parcels of land in and around Banting, including the 1.6ha farm where the killings are thought to have occurred, the authorities believe there are more.
The brothers own several shophouses and a medical clinic in Banting besides lavish homes, notably their mansion where both of them live. They also have a fleet of high-end luxury cars.
The gained their wealth allegedly through money-laundering, obtaining properties illegally and land scams.
It is believed the brothers secured dozens of land grants as collateral in illegal money-lending deals. Caveats on properties were also their way of extorting money, said a source.
The source said the lawyers often asked for jewellery as security when giving loans.
Police yesterday seized files from his law firm in Banting town believed to contain vital information on dubious land deals and money-lending activities.
The seized files are also thought to contain land grants that have now put the owners in a fix as these do*****ents would be crucial in investigations and perhaps later as court exhibits.
Financial institutions have extended full co-operation in the declaration of transactions undertaken by the brothers.
Investigations into their financial transactions could be time-consuming as it is believed there were numerous movements of money in and out of the country.
The brothers are among six suspects held in connection with the murders of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya, 47, 44, her financial adviser and CIMB bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32 and her driver Kamarudin Shamsuddin who were reported missing on Aug 30.
The killings were believed to have occurred after Sosilawati had gone with the others to confront the lawyer regarding the transfer of a land title in a deal believed to be worth RM25mil.
Police have yet to establish if Sosilawati had actually brought RM4mil for their meeting with the Datuk as speculated.
The lawyer brothers’ known wealth
● THE 1.6ha poultry farm and land.
● Properties worth millions of ringgit.
● Semi-detached house in Banting.
● Bungalow house in Puchong where the Datuk lawyer’s wife and two sons live.
● Shophouse where their law firm is located in Banting town.
● Medical clinic run by their youngest sister.
● Nine high-end cars including seven Mercedes Benz.
Police are investigating how the brothers amassed such wealth and are looking at alleged involvement in money-laundering, obtaining properties illegally and land scams.
The police’s anti-money laundering division has applied to the Attorney-General’s Chambers for an order to freeze the assets, including bank accounts, of the two lawyers.
Investigations on the purchase of the farm land are underway and police are trying to contact the former owner.
No sign of suspect's wife, children
PUCHONG: The whereabouts of the family of the "Datuk lawyer", the main suspect in the quadruple murders in Ladang Gadong, Banting, is not known.
Checks by The Malay Mail yesterday found the family house in Puchong unoccupied.
A neighbour said the suspect’s wife had left with their two sons, aged seven and 10, on Monday after fetching them from an international school in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur.
At the suspects’ semi-detached house in Pekan Banting, neighbours said the "Datuk lawyer" was just another resident and some said he was a good neighbour.

By V. Shankar Ganesh and Lee Shi-Ian

BANTING: The main suspects in the murders of Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others could be linked to at least 17 killings over the past years.
This shocking revelation came about after police combed through earlier reports linking murders and missing persons to the suspects, who are two lawyer brothers.

The New Straits Times learnt that the police and the Attorney-General’s Chambers have already met several times as the investigations into the suspects

It is, however, learnt that the investigations are being hampered as the bodies of the victims cannot be traced.

Police are now working overtime searching riverbeds and streams in and around Banting in the hope of retrieving skeletal remains or personal effects of the victims.
To date, after investigations into the quadruple murder began, police have retrieved human bones, a watch and two knives. The bones will be subjected to DNA tests to ascertain the identities.

Police, however, are camped here, conducting investigations at the suspect’s poultry farm in Sungai Gadung, near Tanjung Sepat, and in the waterways.

Yesterday, police also seized several computer hard drives and do*****ents from the suspect’s law firm here.
Later in the evening, a team of policemen took one of the suspects to the Angsana flats in USJ 1, Subang Jaya, where they found an object in some bushes.

The policemen seemed excited and were seen giving each other high fives before taking the suspect away.

It was at the car park of Angsana flat that Sosilawati’s BMW X5 was found on Sept 6.

At a press conference on Sunday afternoon, Federal Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin, in announcing the arrest of the two
lawyers, one of whom is a Datuk, and six others, had also said they were looking at cases of four other missing people.

The New Straits Times yesterday learnt that one of them is a housewife, T. Selvi, who was murdered here last year.

The other three were an Indian businessman and two locals.

Details of the other victims, which have now come on the police radar, are not known yet.

Cosmetics queen Sosilawati, her lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, and driver Kamarudin Shansudin, 44, were believed to have been murdered on Aug 30 and their remains burnt.

The ashes and bones of the four were taken to various streams and rivers in Sungai Gadung and scattered.

Sosilawati, 47, the founder of the Nouvelles Visages beauty line, had arranged to meet the 41-year-old in Banting on Aug 30 over a land deal.

Sosilawati and her companionswere allegedly taken to the farm where they were murdered.

Meanwhile, Bernama reports that relatives of Sosilawati and her three companions are expected to provide samples for DNA extraction at the Kuala
Lumpur Hospital.

Yesterday, Sosilawati’s daughter and Noorhisham’s mother Satinah Mokhtar were at the hospital for that purpose.

Entrepreneurs Urged To Beef Up Personal Security KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 15 (Bernama) -- Entrepreneurs have been urged to beef up personal security in the wake of the alleged murders of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others.

De Classic Life (DCL) and D'Navechee Beauty founder Datuk Azlina Che Abdullah said the alleged murders should be made a lesson by entrepreneurs when conducting business.

She said entrepreneurs should engage bodyguards and armed security guards for their houses.

"Bodyguards and security guards are not for show but to protect themselves and their families as life is more precious than money," she told reporters after visiting Sosilawati's children at Taman Harmonis, Gombak here Wednesday.

The remains of Sosilawati, 47, and three others - lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, and driver Kamarudin Shansudin, 44, -- were believed to be found in Ladang Gadong, Tanjung Sepat on Sunday.

Azlina said she was impressed with the courage and perseverance shown Sosilawati's children and they were ready to accept any eventuality.

"I hope her children will continue to develop their mother's business and they can contact me if they need help," said Azlina.

Selangor PAS commissioner Datuk Dr Hasan Mohamed Ali said he was impressed with the hospitality given by Sosilawati's children despite grieving the lost of their mother.

"The respect accorded to visitors during the trying times showed that their mother had given them proper guidance and education," he told reporters.

Umno Youth executive committee member Datuk Sohaimi Shahadan hoped the police would remain undeterred in the investigations despite many evidence in the alleged murders were disposed of.

"I hope the suspected mastermind along with the henchmen will not escape conviction. I hoped the police will wrap-up this high profile case quickly," he told reporters.
