IGP: New effort on Nurin video

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have not forgotten Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, the 8-year-old girl who was abducted and brutally murdered last year.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said yesterday police were relying on a new technological breakthrough for fresh leads in the case.

A new party had recently approached the force, offering its help to use the latest technology to enhance the images contained in an essential closed-circuit television camera recording.

"Previously, we had given the United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation the recording of a motorcycle that was last seen at the place where Nurin's body was abandoned," he said.

"As you know, FBI's attempt to enhance clarity of the motorcycle's registration number was unsuccessful.

"But a new party has approached us offering help in doing the same thing, saying they have the latest technology to enhance the same image."

Speaking after opening the Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage Ministry's campaign at the Police Training Centre (Pulapol) here yesterday, Musa said the new party was expected to complete its work soon.

On the Ride for Change campaign undertaken by the Marginalised People's Network (Jerit), Musa described the participants as hypocrites.

"If you are fighting for democracy in a civilised nation and if you have a problem, then you should solve it through discussions, not through demonstration.

"For me, this is not democracy but 'democrazy'... crazy to hold demonstrations."
