Cops get two of Nora’s prints from France instead of 10

SEREMBAN: The police had asked French authorities to provide 10 samples of Nora Anne Quoirin’s fingerprints to match with samples obtained from the investigating officer, the Coroner’s Court here heard.

However, assistant registrar of Criminals, Central Criminal Registry Malaysia and Singapore, Bukit Aman CID, Puwira Jaya Othman, 56, said police only managed to obtain two samples of the index and middle fingers on Aug 13, 2019.

He said the results of the comparison made by matching fingerprint samples obtained on Aug 5 and 13 from the investigating officer as well as the police fingerprint database, did not match those of Nora Anne.Puwira Jaya, who is the 34th witness in the inquest proceedings to determine the actual cause of the Irish-French teenager’s death, said this when testifying at the 14th day of the proceedings before coroner Maimoonah Aid.

Earlier, the 33rd witness in the proceedings, fingerprint examiner and assistant registrar of criminals from the same division, Rabidin Mohd Zin, 54, said fingerprints can last several days and weeks depending on the environment.

Nora Anne, 15, went missing on Aug 4 last year, a day after she and her family arrived in Malaysia for a two-week holiday at a resort in Pantai here, about 60km south of Kuala Lumpur. — Bernama
