Pertanyaan buat polis setelah berjaya menjadi hero 'last minute'


dari Mat Cendana

The police investigating the murder case of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others have done a good job. However, there are disturbing questions that need answers.

Among other things, why were the two killer lawyers allowed to go free for so long despite the numerous police reports lodged against them?

The most recent case involving Sosilawati and her companions are already shocking. Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein has described the murders as a heinous crime. However, as new information come to be unveiled, it appears that they weren’t the first victims, for more may have died at hands of Sosilawati killers.
CAPTION: Killer lawyers managed to stay free despite numerous reports lodged against them. WHY?

In the New Straits Times yesterday of “Frustrated at cops’ inaction”, a businessman said he had lodged five reports against the two lawyers since 1998 over cheating cases. However, no action were taken against them.

Rajasekaran Thiagarajan, a lawyer representing this businessman said the police, MACC and even the Bar Council did not realise the seriousness of the reports lodged.

“Police should have been more vigilant and taken action against them between 2007 and last year when many victims and their families lodged reports,” he said.

There were allegations that the brothers had “powerful connections”. Considering the fact that they had managed to be free for so long despite all these reports suggests that these claims aren’t so `wild and baseless’ as to be dismissed offhand. Now nobody wants to claim they were ever close to these killers. But the police/Home Ministry/MACC must also investigate these previous cases – Why was there no action despite all these reports?

**UPDATE 17/9 7:45PM -- The Malay Mail reports that "Federal police are to interview Kuala Langat police personnel who handled the re-opened files of seven fraud allegations, a murder and a missing person’s report linked to the "Datuk lawyer", the key suspect in the grisly quadruple killings here.
It was learnt Kuala Langat Land Office staff would also be questioned in connection with the fraud reports, all believed to involve land transactions valued at RM7.1 million." READ MORE HERE...
