Baby Adam case: Cops to record statement from Siti Bainun

KUALA LUMPUR: Police will record a statement from Rumah Bonda founder, Siti Bainun Ahd Razali, to assist in the investigation into the death of a 10-month-old baby boy in 2020.

Wangsa Maju district police chief Supt Ashari Abu Samah said Siti Bainun’s statement had to be postponed earlier as the woman was facing a trial at the Jalan Duta court.

"We should have recorded a statement from her days ago and we will call her soon.

"So far, we’ve recorded statements from a number of individuals in this case,” he told reporters at the launching of Ops Selamat of the Kuala Lumpur police contingent at its Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department in Jalan Tun H.S. Lee by Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim.

Supt Ashari said that an individual known as Cikgu Fadli would also be called to assist in the investigation.

He said the man had claimed on social media that no post-mortem had been conducted on the remains of Muhammad Adam Rizqi Abdul Azim or Baby Adam.

"The allegation is baseless and we are looking for the man. We want to know from where did he get the information with regard to the post-mortem.

"It has created concern among the public and gave an impression that the police did not properly investigate Baby Adam’s death. That individual should have instead referred the matter to the police and get the facts right,” he added.

It was reported that Pejuanita Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur head Bibi Sunita S. Khan had lodged a report and called on the police to reopen the investigation into the death of Baby Adam.

She said the death of Baby Adam on May 3, 2020 could have involved abuse at the Rumah Bonda shelter in Taman Setapak here.

She had raised doubts over the report on the baby’s death, which had initially been classified as sudden death and linked to the child’s history of sickness. - Bernama
