After exactly a month since Nurin was laid to rest and two months since she first went missing, there is a glaring dearth of news on Nurin in the mass media. Everything seems so quiet and calm. Even the police are not coming up with new announcements of new arrests or new leads.
However, today, after browsing through all the major newspapers in town, I found this two liner news on Nurin in The Star. It says, "On the investigations into the murder of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, Fu, who is also Kuantan MP, assured the public that police were doing their best to solve the case.
“Let the police have more time to crack the case,” he said."
The "he" refered in the above report is Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Fu Ah Kiow and the two liner was actually part of a report on the award of RM2.5mil in damages to an ex-ISA detainee under the title ‘Decision shows independent judiciary’.
This sad development is indeed much expected as time passes, the heat cools, henceforth the Nurin tragedy will slowly fade from people's memory, until the next tragedy.
Personally and selfishly, the absence of news item on Nurin makes it difficult for me who has vowed to maintain this blog until the day when the perpetrator of Nurin's murder is convicted, or probably hanged!
Why difficult? Well, if you have been following this blog site, some 90 of perhaps even 95% of the entries are actually extracted from newspaper reports, so with the absence of newspaper reports on Nurin, what's there to extract from?
It looks like that now I'm really forced to brush up my writing skills to come up with original entries in order to ensure the visitors will continue visiting the blog and to continue talking about the tragedy and joining forces towards creating a safer environment for our children so that there will be no Nurin No. 2, 3 and so forth.
However, though it might seem that interest on Nurin is fast fading away, there are still people out there who have made it their mission to make Nurin lives on in the memory of the public.
Just yesterday, the Jazimins and mine had a photo shoot session for a fairly new magazine which will be carrying an article on the proposed Nurin Alert. Hopefully by keep on talking about Nurin and now Nurin Alert, the public will at least realise that the case is very much unresolved and pending where the perpetrator(s) is/are still at large and until this happens their children are still very much in danger of becoming the demon's next victim.
To some, seeing pictures of Jazimin (and now with the whole family, minus Nurin) is read to carry the meaning that the family is capitalising on their new "fame".
I remembered, sometime about two or three weeks ago, there was an article in the Malay press that suggested that the entertainment industry was using Jazimin to publicise themselves by having Jazimin and his daughters attending events organised by them. In fact, strongly worded words were even registered in this blog arguing about the gossip of Jazimin being lured to become a "singer".
Well, the fact is I have always been encouraging Jazimin to participate in any "suitable" public events as he represents Nurin, and he will continue to do so until justice is given to poor Nurin or until such time our place is safe from or free of these sadistic demons.
Nurin Alert is therefore a very good initiative and I just could not wait for the formation of its Working Committee come early November.
Good Night, let's see if there is anything I can extract from the press for my posting tomorrow. If there is none, sorry to say but you would have to read my original "donno what" entry again tomorrow. I hope I have not and will not bore you.
