PETALING JAYA: Stockbroking firm director Koh Kim Teck said he mourned the death of his nephew, the 14-year-old Chinese schoolboy Xu Jian Huang, who was found drowned the swimming pool at his house in Kuala Lumpur. 

Koh, 51, who together with his bodyguards Mohamad Najib Zulkifli and Resty Agpalo was acquitted of a charge of murdering the teenager, said he was also a victim in the case. 

Following his incarceration last September, which ended with his release by the High Court on Tuesday, Koh has made an appeal for privacy. 

Koh, who turned down requests from the press for interviews, released a statement that reads: “I hope my acquittal will end the ordeal I went through for the last one year. 

“I mourn for the death of my nephew, who was part of my family.  

“I’m also a victim in this case. The truth will prevail. 

“I want to close this chapter of my life and move on. My family and I have suffered enough. May I request that my family and I be left alone.”
