The Borneo Post - - HOME -

SHAH ALAM: About 100 lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional me­dia rep­re­sen­ta­tives gath­ered at the Sul­tan Salahud­din Ab­dul Aziz Shah Courts Com­plex here as early as 7am yes­ter­day to cover the re­mand of two for­eign fe­male sus­pects in the death of a North Korean man in the coun­try on Mon­day.

At the same time, lo­cal re­porters also turned up at the Sepang Mag­is­trate’s Court upon be­ing in­formed the sus­pects might be re­manded there.

Me­dia rep­re­sen­ta­tives had to camp out at both places as the po­lice were tight-lipped over where the sus­pects would be re­manded.

At one point yes­ter­day, the me­dia at the courts com­plex ob­tained in­for­ma­tion the sus­pects had ar­rived there, trig­ger­ing a frenzy among the re­porters as they rushed to get the best spot to take pic­tures of the for­eign­ers. How­ever, af­ter wait­ing for about four hours, the press be­came rest­less when the sus­pects were nowhere to be seen.

Later, the me­dia be­came dis­ap­pointed to learn that the two women had been taken to the Sepang po­lice head­quar­ters where a sev­en­day re­mand or­der was ob­tained to de­tain the for­eign­ers to fa­cil­i­tate in­ves­ti­ga­tions. – Ber­nama
