FBI Too Fails To Enhance CCTV Footage In Nurin's Murder

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) whose help was sought by the Malaysian police failed to enhance the clarity of the blurred CCTV image of the registration number of a motorcycle ridden by a man seen at the scene where Nurin Jazlin Jazimin's body was found.

Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum said despite efforts by the FBI's forensic laboratory in Washington, the registration number of the motorcycle was still blur.

"Police are still tracking down the male motorcyclist and hope the public will come forward with information on the case," he said in his reply to Datuk Mohd Razali Che Mamat (BN-Kuala Krai) in the Dewan Rakyat today.

The first segment of the CCTV image outside the three-storey shoplot at Jalan PJS 1/48, Petaling Jaya at 1pm on Sept 16 showed a man arriving on a Modenas Kriss motorcycle carrying a blue and black Diadora sports bag. He was later seen making a phone call while loitering there before taking the bag from his motorcycle and leaving it beside a staircase on the ground floor of the shoplot. He then left.

The body of eight-year-old Nurin Jazlin was found stuffed in a sports bag at the shoplot on Sept 17. The Year Two pupil of Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Desa Setapak went missing on Aug 20 after she went to a night market by herself near her house in Section 1, Wangsa Maju, Setapak.

Mohd Johari said police were intensifying efforts to curb and check violent crimes, especially murders, by increasing the presence of uniformed policemen in potential crime areas. "Other measures include exposing foreign workers to local culture, cracking down on illegal immigrants and stepping up intelligence gathering in murder cases," he added.

To a question from Teng Boon Soon (BN-Tebrau), Mohd Johari said most snatch theft cases occurred by the roadside and in large housing areas which made police surveillance difficult. "We hope the public, especially non-governmental organisations, would help police check crime," he said. (Bernama)

***** As far as Nurin Jazlin's brutal murder is concerned the latest development implies that investigations have reached an impasse. Sad.
