Nurin's Father Has Right To Sue Police - CID Chief
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 20 (Bernama) -- Bukit Aman CID director Datuk Bakri Zinin said police cannot stop Jazimin Abdul Jalil, the father of murdered Nurin Jazlin from suing the force.
"If he sues the police, then we will study it. Sometimes, we too can make mistakes," he said when asked to comment on newspaper reports that Jazimin will file a civil suit against the police and government in the Kuala Lumpur High Court Thursday.
Reports said Jazimin would be asking for compensation and retraction of reports that implied he was involved with loans sharks (Ah Long) and an apology over the distribution of Nurin's post-mortem photographs.
Bakri said Nurin's family should not lay all blame on the police and that they were still collecting information to track down the murderers.
"We are not obliged to tell the family members what we do all the time as we have our own strategy in investigating the case."
He said police did not investigate based on emotion but according to needs and based on available proof adding it could not be solved without information form the public.
Nurin, 8, was found dead in a gym bag in front of a shop in Jalan PJS1, Petaling Jaya on Sept 17, 2007.
