SHAH ALAM,5th DEC : National lawyers have been urged to file a plea in regards to the High Court’s Decision here are Shah Alam to release Corporal Jenain Subi, aged 49, in the fatal shooting of a teenage boy of fifteen years, Aminulrasyid Hamzah two years ago.
Lawyer, N. Surendran who was available for a comment said that the government, the lawyers and the police fully responsible because the family of victim has not been given justice.
“From the beginning, the police has been covering what actuallyhappened by giving false statements about a ‘parang’ in the car.”
“Also, some suggested that Aminulrasyid was driving the car towards the police and this has all been proven untrue,” Surendran added.
He explains that what is most disappointing is that the police have never offered apology in regards to this case.
“We have requested that national lawyers file a plea as soon as possible and that the government and the police offer a sincere apology openly to the family of the deceased for making false claims,” he said.
He also expressed that he is waiting for further instruction from Aminurasyid’s family in regards to the case.
He said that the case clearly highlights the need for Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) by the government to allow investigations of misconduct of the police force.
“Some of the main reasons for this injustice is because of the lack of IPCMC,” he added.
Judge Datuk Abdul Rahman Sebit who considered Jenain’s claims decided in his favour after finding that Jenain had no motive or intention to murder the teen.
Abdul Rahman was satisfied with the explanation of the police that he had only fired a bullet in order to stop the proton Isawara driven by Aminulrasyid, and not to murder the boy.
The judge also mentioned that there is no prima facie case proven for Jenain and that police should not have been asked to defend themselves.
Jenain who was on duty in a unit patrol car, at the Shah Alam Police Headquarters allegedly caused the death of Aminulrasyid between 1.10 am and 2.00 am on the 26th of April 2010 at Jalan Tarian 11/2, Section 11.
The accussed was charged under Section 304(a) of the Penal Code which can carry a sentence of 30 years and a fine.
In mid-September 2011, Session’s Court gave a sentence of five years imprisonment for causing the death of Aminulrasyid.
When giving the sentence, Judge Latifah Mohd Tahar held that the use of weaponry by Jenain whichended with 21 shots was an extreme act and not reasonable under the circumstances, even if it was done to stop the car driven by Aminulrasyid.
