Sosilawati murder: Investigation Into Sosilawati's Murder Not Racially Motivated - IGPBANTING, Sept

Contributed by Anonymous on Thursday, September 16 @ 05:48:54 CDT

BANTING, Sept 16 (Bernama) -- Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Ismail Omar said the investigation into the murder of cosmetics queen Sosilawati Lawiya and three others was not racially motivated.

"This case is like any other criminal case as there are the criminals and the victims," he said at a dialogue with local community leaders at the Kuala Langat district police headquarters, here, today in conjunction with his visit to Selangor as the new IGP.


Ismail also said that investigations into cases which had racial elements like the arson on churches in Selangor and surau in Johor were carried out based on the law.

However, he said, the public should understand that the process of prosecution came under the jurisdiction of the Attorney-General and not the police.

Ismail said this after one of the community leaders present questioned why cases involving the throwing of paint and liquor bottles at surau were not brought to court unlike cases involving the torching of churches.

On another note, the IGP said he had ordered Selangor police including in the Kuala Langat district to monitor the rising involvement of the local youths in crime.

He said he would also look into the need to increase manpower and logistical support for the district police headquarters and to place an Assistant Commissioner of Police to head the police there instead of a Superintendent like now.

The matter was raised by Kuala Langat MCA division chief Datuk Eii Kim Hock who said the dictrict police needed to be beefed up due to rapid development in Kuala Langat, which is surrounded by such areas as Putrajaya and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang, besides having a long coastline.

Eii said the Kuala Langat district now had a population of about 200,000 and hoped that more police cars would patrol the area so that the people there would feel safer with increased police presence.

While he thanked police for taking action against illegal gambling activities in the district, Eii also praised their swift investigation into the murder of Sosilawati and three others although the Raya celebration was on.

Ismail, meanwhile, said police managed to reduce the crime rate in the district by 14 per cent between January and August this year.

September 16, 2010 15:31 PM Main Suspect In Sosilawati Murder Case Linked To Other Cases BANTING, Sept 16 (Bernama) -- The main suspect in the murder of cosmetics queen Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya is believed to be involved in a number of missing person, murder and commercial crime cases in the Kuala Langat district, Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said on Thursday.

He said the suspect, a lawyer, was being investigated into the disappearance of a male Indian national since early this year.

However, he added, a police report on the missing businessman was only lodged on Sept 8.

"So, how could we have known (about this case) if there was no police report made?" he said at a press conference after a police-community function at the Kuala Langat district police headquarters which was also attended by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar and his deputy Datuk Hussin Ismail, here.

Khalid said the lawyer was also linked to the murder of a woman in Banting last year.

A newspaper report today said the 44-year-old woman, T.Selvi, who was the wife of an auto workshop owner, was believed to have been killed over a loan dispute involving the lawyer.

"Although the woman's husband has made various statements on the case, I don't wish to comment on it as the case is still under investigation," said Khalid.

He said police had received new leads on this murder case following the investigation into the murder of Sosilawati, her driver Kamarudin Shansuddin, 44, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, and bank officer Noorhisham Mohamad, 38.

"This case (Selvi's murder) was never closed and we will investigate to obtain more information."

Khalid said police had received seven commercial crime reports against the lawyer including on criminal breach of trust and cheating in land transactions since 2005, involving losses amounting to RM7.1 million for the victims.

He said these cases would be investigated by the police Commercial Crime Department and that investigations into such cases would take some time as the police needed to examine various do*****ents.

Asked whether the police in Kuala Langat had been "bought over" by the lawyer, Khalid said anyone with information on this should report directly to him, Bukit Aman or the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

"We will not protect our people who accept bribes," he said.

Thursday September 16, 2010 Missing man adds to twist, Indian media now taking up story
KLANG: The disappearance of Indian millionaire A. Muthuraja has taken an intriguing twist – now the Indian media has taken up the story. Muthuraja’s wife S. Usharani’s refusal to lodge a report with the Indian police has fuelled speculation that there is more to his disappearance. Usharani, 24, claims that she was afraid to lodge the report in Chennai as she lived alone with her daughter. Muthuraja allegedly disappeared after coming to Malaysia to meet the two lawyer brothers who have been implicated in the murder of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three men with her. The papers believed to be pursuing the story are the Deccan Chronicle, Times of India and Tamil vernacular afternoon papers Maalai Malar and Maalai Murasu. It is believed that Muthuraja also financed movies in India. Sources in India also alleged that the lawyer brothers had acquired substantial property in Namakkal located in Erode, Tamil Nadu. Meanwhile, it is learnt that Muthuraja’s brother, known as Kasi, had contacted a PKR member when he was here to look for his brother four months after he disappeared. When contacted, the PKR man said: “We suspected Muthuraja was being held captive and that is why we asked Usharani to lodge the police report here on Sept 8.”***Thursday September 16, 2010 Henchmen have ‘underworld’ links
KUALA LANGAT: The henchmen who allegedly carried out the murders of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others may belong to several underworld groups. Sources here say the main suspect in the grisly murders, a lawyer, had close contacts with gang members as they often came to him for legal advice. A source who attended primary and secondary school with the main suspect said the lawyer also had strong connections with a group of people who were restricted residents. “They would do anything for him as he had helped them and their families a lot,” said the source. He said the lawyer’s philanthropy had also helped him gain the support and respect of the men who allegedly carried out his orders. “People did not want to mess with him, and that is why some of those who had had bad experiences with him settled their issues amicably,” the source added.

SANDAKAN, Sept 16 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today congratulated the police force for its efficiency in solving quickly the murder of cosmetics queen Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya. He said the police should be given the time and space to handle the case so that all those involved in the crime could be brought to justice. “This success (of the police) is very encouraging. I congratulate the police force for having acted fast. “I hope they will gather all the evidence so that the court will have no doubt in imposing a sentence commensurate with the seriousness of the crime committed,” he told reporters when asked to comment on a statement by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar that the murder of Sosilawati and three men had been solved. Sosilawati, 47; her driver Kamaruddin Shamsudin, 44; lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32; and CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, went missing on August 30 after they had gone to Banting, Selangor, over a land deal. Police found out that the four had been killed, their bodies burnt and the ashes thrown into rivers near Ladang Gadong in Tanjung Sepat near Banting, and have detained eight suspects, among them two lawyers. Earlier, Najib attended the Sabah level “Juara Rakyat” (People’s Champion) programme and an Aidilfitri open house, here. At the event, also attended by Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman and leaders of Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties, the prime minister launched the “1 Malaysia Milk Programme” to provide free milk to primary school children. Najib said the free milk programme, which was expected to be implemented next month, would initially be for pupils in standards one to three and would be extended in stages to the upper standards. He said the initial cost of the programme was RM4 million, and the allocation would be increased from time to time. Najib said the Sabah government had given the undertaking that it would be able to supply the milk necessary for the programme. — Bernama
