CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN: Please ensure justice is done

By : D. PARAMALINGAM, Seri Kembangan, Selangor

I WOULD like to know what has happened to two unsolved cases involving two little girls -- Nurin Jazlin Jazimin and Sharlinie Mohd Nashar.

I can't help thinking that the preoccupation of the police with other issues recently has forced them to relegate these cases to the back burner.

Come Sept 17, it would be one year to the day since Nurin was kidnapped and murdered. The police have yet to find the person responsible for this heinous crime.

And it has been seven months since Sharlinie went missing. Have the police found her? The answers to these two questions is a big "no".

In fact, the police, quite understandably, probably decided to concentrate more on law-and-order problems associated with the March 8 general election than with finding the offenders or trying to solve these two cases.

The elections have come and gone. Nurin's murderer still remains at large. Sharlinie remains missing.

Now, the whole nation has been caught up with the mudslinging and power play between politicians, and Nurin and Sharlinie seem to have been forgotten.

As a father of two young children, I feel for the parents of these two young girls. I also constantly fear for the safety of my children.

Much as I understand the enormous strain under which our law-enforcement officers are working, I appeal to them to ensure that justice is done to Nurin and Sharlinie and those who care for them.

saya sgt tertarik dgn artikel ini.syabas dan sedikit emosional kerana masih ada rupanya orang yg berfikir ttg kedua2 (atau semua) kanak2 malang ini.

memetik kata2 dr banner penunjuk2 perasaan ttg satu kes jenayah knk2 di kentucky,US berbunyi "JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED"

well, i think,this is waht happened in these cases...what a sloppy job done by the authorities...

nurin's case, have any finger print taken from the sport bag?the killer carried the sport bag with bare hands!

nurin's family should voice out to the investigative team abt this.

Im really amazed with ur concerns and empathy to both girls..yes..they seemed to be forgotten..

I bet its really difficult for the parents to have to just swallow the bitterness of the silence they are getting from the authorities..

Or maybe the authorities are doing sumthing..It may be a lil slow but hioefully the truth will be revealed soon..

Im so grateful that at the moment no horrifying 'catastrophy' like dis is happening in Brunei..Nauzubillah..pls pray that my son and all the children in Brunei & the world will be safe..Amin

Salam Noy,

We used to have no worries before, but since Nurin, we had Sharlinie, then Asmawi and not forgetting the victims of the Catman.

I wonder whose child would be next?
