PUTRAJAYA: Samirah Muzaffar, the widow of the Cradle Fund chief executive officer Nazrin Hassan, has posted her bail of RM500,000.

The Federal Court allowed her to be released on bail in two sureties, pending her murder trial, scheduled to begin on Sept 3.

Samirah, 44, who covered her hair with a dark shawl, entered a black vehicle at the police lockup area at 12.40pm yesterday.

Two women, believed to be her family members, were present at the Federal Court registry at about 11.40am to settle the bail and documentation. The former senior executive at Intellectual Property Corpo­ration of Malaysia, two teenagers, aged 14 and 17, and Indonesian national Eka Wahyu Lestari, who is still at large, were charged with the murder of Nazrin, 47.

They are alleged to have committed the offence at a house in Mutiara Homes, Mutiara Damansara, bet­ween 11.30pm on June 13 and 4am on June 14 last year.

The Federal Court’s five-man bench, led by Justice Azahar Mohamed, allowed Samirah’s application to be released on bail, pending the murder trial.

The court imposed several conditions, including surrendering her passport to the court and reporting to the police station fortnightly. — Bernama
