Probe on suspect still ongoing

PETALING JAYA: Court cafeteria helper Mohd Hilmi Mohd Hasim is still being held under the new Special Offences (Security Measures) Act 2012 until Bukit Aman concludes its investigations into his suspected links with terror activities.

“We have yet to finish investigations. We will forward the investigation papers to the prosecutors once our probe is concluded,” said Bukit Aman special task force (operations and counter terrorism) director Comm Datuk Mohamad Fuzi Harun.

Comm Mohamad Fuzi said police expected the investigations to be concluded within 21 days.

Mohd Hilmi, who works at the Jalan Duta Courts Complex’s cafeteria, run by ex-Internal Security Act (ISA) detainee Yazid Sufaat’s wife Chomel Mohamad, 48, was detained together with Yazid and religious teacher Halimah Hussein, 52.

Asked whether the suspects were linked to the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) terror network, Fuzi declined to comment as investigations were ongoing.

Yazid was earlier detained under the now-repealed ISA for seven years from Dec 2001 for alleged links to the JI.
