No alcohol or drugs found in body of developer

GEORGE TOWN: No trace of alcohol or drugs were detected in the remains of the developer who fell from his condominium in Pulau Tikus here.

Penang deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Fisol Salleh said yesterday that there was no sign of such intoxicants in his body.

“He did not leave a note behind, and his wife and children confirmed that nothing was out of the ordinary the evening before his fall,” he told a press conference yesterday.

Fisol declined to identify the developer, citing the need to maintain humanitarian ethics in police investigations.

Chinese mainstream media identified the deceased as Ewein Bhd founder Datuk Ewe Swee Kheng, 53.

Ewe was to be the prosecution witness of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission in the graft trial of former Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng, who faces four graft charges related to the Penang undersea tunnel project.

Ewe’s funeral will be held at Batu Gantung Funeral Parlour at 2pm today. Only family members are allowed to attend due to Covid-19 restrictions.
