KUALA LUMPUR: City police have yet to find any leads on the disappearance of Deputy Public Prosecutor Anthony Kevin Morais.
“On the burnt car found in Kampung Sungai Samak, Hutan Melintang, we have not found any evidence to link it to him.
“We are investigating the case as a missing persons report,” said City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Zainuddin Ahmad.
Hilir Perak OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain was quoted saying they would need at least a week to conduct the investigation and find out who owned the car.
Prominent lawyer Tan Sri Dr Muhammad Shafee Abdullah acknowledged Kevin as a worthy opponent in court.
“He displayed pure professionalism and exemplary competence – a true public servant.
“It would be a pity if anything bad was to happen to him, that in the current handicaps facing the Attorney-General’s Chambers, especially in the prosecution and general litigation, we may lose a serious talent,” said Muhammad Shafee.
Lawyer Haniff Khatri, who had known Kevin for many years, said he was “a very humble and nice person”.
