Woman hired bodyguard after being threatened

SEPANG: Threats had been made against Farah Md Isa, the woman who was shot at in the Kuala Lumpur International Airport incident on Sunday, and she had lodged a police report previously – but an interim protection order was not warranted at the time, say police.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Hussein Omar Khan said investigations then did not indicate that the threats made by Farah’s husband, Hafizul Harawi, would escalate to a shooting.

“This refers to the threats made against the wife and the report lodged by her. In that case, we arrested Hafizul and held him under remand for three days.

“That case is still ongoing, and investigations need to be completed before it can be handed over to the DPP (deputy public prosecutor) for charging.

“Each domestic violence investigation has stages and procedures. Only when we have obtained sufficient statements can we obtain an interim order, and so forth.

“We cannot simply obtain interim orders for [Penal Code] Section 506 cases,” he said.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department (CID) director Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain previously stated that the suspect was under investigation following a report lodged against him.

“Based on that report, the suspect was arrested, and we had submitted the investigation paper (to the DPP), but we were given additional instructions.

“Because of that incident, the wife hired bodyguards,” he told reporters at a press conference at the KLIA district police headquarters yesterday.

On Sunday morning, the suspect fired shots in the arrival hall of KLIA in an attempt to kill travel agency owner Farah, better known as Farah Cie.

Following a nationwide manhunt, the suspect was arrested in Kota Baru at 3pm yesterday.
