New evidence in Ahmad Sarbani’s death

IPOH: Family lawyers of late Selangor Customs assistant director Ahmad Sarbani Mohamed have submitted new evidence to the police that could determine the manner of his death.

Lawyer Ghazali Mohd Ramli said the evidence was submitted on Sunday.

“We hope they will investigate the matter,” Ghazali told a press conference at his law firm here yesterday.

When asked what the evidence was, he said: “We can’t reveal it to the media because we don’t want to jeopardise the investigation.

“However, we believe the clue will be able to determine whether Ahmad Sarbani had committed suicide or not.”

He also questioned Ahmad Sarbani’s motive to go to the MACC building if he wanted to take his own life.

Ghazali said that Ahmad Sarbani was not involved in money laundering.

According to a statement given to the media by the lawyers, Ahmad Sarbani had three cars, a Perodua Kancil, a second-hand Honda CRV, a Proton Persona and a Modenas Kriss bike.

He also owned an apartment in Bukit Tinggi, Klang, worth RM65,872, an apartment in Puncak Alam (RM68,988), a Semi-D cluster house in Saujana Impian in Sungai Buloh (RM230,000) and RM35,000 in savings in Amanah Saham Bumiputra.

”He bought the Semi-D house with a government loan and the savings were from his wife’s Employees Provident Fund (EPF), which she had withdrawn when she was 50 years old,” said Awtar Singh, another lawyer representing Ahmad Sarbani’s family.

Meanwhile, police have recorded another four statements in their investigations.

“The crime lab is also viewing the CCTV footage taken from the MACC headquarters in Jalan Cochrane as well as the mobile phone belonging to Ahmad Sarbani,” deputy police chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Amar Singh told a press conference at the Cheras police headquarters yesterday.
