SHAH ALAM — Dec. 30, 2019: The widow of Cradle Fund CEO Nazrin Hassan disagreed with using his insurance payout to pay his debts and instead suggested his money with the Employees Provident Fund be used instead.
According to Dr. Abdul Aziz Hassan, Nazrin’s older brother, Samirah Muzaffar, the first accused in Nazrin’s murder and his widow, this was told to him by an officer with Cradle Fund. At that point Aziz however wasn’t sure how much the debts were.
Aziz also testified today that he found out Samirah had entered a caveat on his brother’s EPF contributions, with any withdrawal requiring her permission.
Another of Nazrin’s brother, Dr. Malek Reedzwan Hassan, said he suspected one of Samirah’s children was responsible for Nazrin’s murder and that three months prior to Nazrin’s death, he had received a death threat.
“Nazrin’s personal assistant called Anis told me about it when I met her last year. Anis also said a police report was lodged but Nazrin withdrew it on knowing that the threat was made by Samirah’s child.
“Another case was when Nazrin’s clothing were damaged by the child,” said Malek, adding that he believed the two incidents were linked to Nazrin’s murder.
Malek told Samirah’s lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah that he however did not inform the police about this.
Samirah, a former senior executive at the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia, her two teenaged sons and Indonesian Eka Wahyu Lestari are charged with Nazrin’s murder that happened in June 2018.
Hearing continues on February 14.
