SHAH ALAM (Bernama): The High Court here has ordered the release of a married couple remanded for the investigation into the death of Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Nazrin Hassan.
Judge Datuk Ab Karim Ab Rahman issued the order after allowing an application by the couple's lawyer, LS Leonard.
Nazrin's sister-in-law and her husband were remanded for four days by Petaling Jaya magistrate's court assistant registrar Hairul Azhar Mohd Ishak last Monday (Sept 24).
The remand order against the woman and her husband, aged 39 and 41, respectively, was supposed to expire on Thursday (Sept 27).
In his decision, Ab Karim said the four-day remand against the couple was too long and the police did not provide strong grounds to detain them.
"To remand them for that period, there has to be relevant and solid grounds. Any further action, as stated in the grounds given by the police to remand the couple, can be done without the presence of the suspects," he added. – Bernama
