Ampang Jaya district police deputy chief Supt Mohd Azam Ismail said the Negri Sembilan Criminal Investigation Department (JSJ) had, among others, searched for clues at seven villas at the Shorea resort, which is located near the Dusun Resort where Nora Anne and her family were staying upon their arrival in Malaysia on Aug 3, 2019.
Supt Mohd Azam, who was then the Negri Sembilan JSJ’s Serious Crimes staff officer, said the police also inspected five private villas, four of which were occupied, and nine private premises and resorts, with only five of them occupied at the time.
Supt Mohd Azam is the 14th witness in the inquest to determine the actual cause of the teenager’s death.
To a question from deputy public prosecutor Muhamad Iskandar Ahmad, who is the inquest coordinating officer, on other instructions given to him, Supt Mohd Azam said his team was instructed to interview Forestry Department officers at the foot of Gunung Berembun for any indication of the teenager’s location.
“We were informed that the missing person did not enter the area,” he said.
Supt Mohd Azam told the court that his team was also tasked to investigate the background of Nora Anne’s family members, as well as to profile the witnesses, including former guests, especially those who had stayed at the resort prior to the incident.
To a question from Coroner Maimoonah Aid on the outcome of the investigations on Nora Anne’s parents, Supt Mohd Azam said he found that they had no criminal records.
The inquest proceedings started on Aug 24 and a total of 64 witnesses will be called to testify.
The inquest continues on Sept 14. — Bernama
