Lawyer to seek review of Cradle CEO’s stepsons’ remand

Lawyer LS Leonard says the remand order can be shortened or revoked.

PETALING JAYA: The lawyer acting for Cradle CEO Nazrin Hassan’s wife will file an application seeking a revision of the remand order issued for her two teenage sons.

LS Leonard said he is waiting for instructions from the family.

“The remand order can be revised, either to shorten it or revoke it all together,” he said after the Magistrate’s Court granted a three-day extension for the remand of Nazrin’s wife, Samirah Muzaffar.

Police confirmed yesterday that Nazrin’s stepsons, aged 14 and 17, were picked up from Taman Tun Dr Ismail.

The two boys are being remanded for seven days from yesterday.

They were the latest to be detained following Nazrin’s death in June.

Nazrin, 45, is said to have suffered a puncture wound to his head, believed to have been caused by an archery arrow.

His stepsons were arrested after the police learned that both they and their mother possessed archery skills.

Samirah was remanded for seven days following her arrest last Monday.

Her first husband, who was also arrested on Monday, was released last Friday.

Earlier about 30 family members and friends of Nazrin Hassan’s stepsons gathered at the Petaling Jaya court complex here to protest the arrest of the two boys in connection with his death.

Activist Hartini Zainuddin from NGO Voice of the Children had objected to the the boys being handcuffed and dressed in prison attire and said it was against the United Nations’ code for the treatment of minors.
