A decision on whether Samirah Muzaffar and the two teenagers charged with murdering Cradle Fund CEO Nazrin Hassan will be freed or ordered to defend themselves will be made known tomorrow.

High Court judge Ab Karim Ab Rahman is expected to announce the verdict at the end of the prosecution’s case at 9am tomorrow.

On April 22, Karim fixed May 30 to deliver his decision after hearing submissions from both parties at the end of the prosecution’s case. However, the date was later postponed to June 21.

The prosecution team comprised deputy public prosecutors Mohd Asnawi Abu Hanipah, Tengku Intan Suraya Tengku Ismail and Nur Sabrina Abu Bakar, while the defence team consisted of lawyers Muhammad Shafee Abdullah and Rahmat Hazlan.

The prosecution closed its case on Feb 14 after calling 57 witnesses, including the deceased’s older siblings, brothers Dr Abdul Aziz and Dr Malek Reedzwan and sister Che Elainee; Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department director Edwin Galan Anak Teruki; Hospital Kuala Lumpur pathology forensic officer Dr Siew Sheue Feng; and a security guard at the deceased’s residence, Raju Kumar Pandit.

The hearing of the case began on Sept 6, 2019.

On March 12, 2019, Samirah, 47, and the two teenagers now aged 19 and 16, as well as an Indonesian woman, Eka Wahyu Lestari, who is still at large, were charged with murdering Nazrin at his house in Mutiara Damansara, between 11.30pm on June 13, 2018, and 4am the following day.
