KUALA LUMPUR: Cosmetics entrepreneur Muhammad Sajjad Kamaruzzaman, better known as Nur Sajat, is being sought by police to attend court proceedings in Ampang as both victim and witness in the case.
According to Ampang OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Farouk Eshak, Nur Sajat is required to attend the proceedings on July 14.
"Nur Sajat, who is believed to have run away and cannot be traced, is needed to attend court proceedings over a fraudulent identity card name and sex details change," he said in a statement on Tuesday (June 15).
In April, the then inspector-general of police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador urged Nur Sajat to come out of hiding.
He was quoted as saying that Nur Sajat's apparent decision to flee the country was odd as she was not facing a serious charge in court.
Abdul Hamid had said police previously succeeded in locating Nur Sajat but could not apprehend her due to challenges such as the existence of hidden passages to cross the country's borders.
Ampang Jaya police urged those with information on the witness to contact investigating officer Insp Syafrina Nadzleen Ibrahim at 019-269 2954.
