Outcome of autopsy sent through WhatsApp.

The High Court in Shah Alam was told yesterday that Health Ministry director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah informed Dr Abdul Aziz Hassan of the outcome of the post-mortem for his brother, Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Nazrin Hassan.

Aziz, 59, who is the 18th prosecution witness, said Hisham sent him the information by WhatsApp on June 18, 2018, which Aziz then forwarded to the first accused, Samirah Muzaffar, 44.


He also told the court that Hisham received the report from Dr Siew, who carried out the post-mortem on Nazrin.

The content of the WhatsApp message was read out in the court by lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, representing Samirah, today, including that it was the explosion of a mobile phone that caused the fire that killed Nazrin.

“Samirah asked if Nazrin was in pain. You replied no. He was sound asleep/unconscious,” said Shafee when reading out the contents of the WhatsApp before Judge Ab Karim Ab Rahman today.

Earlier, Shafee submitted three documents to the court, which included a copy of the transcripts of the WhatsApp conversation between Samirah and Aziz, and also between Samirah and a friend of Nazrin, by the name of Shahrul Idzwan.


On March 12, Samirah, a former senior executive at the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO), and two teenagers aged 17 and 14, were charged, along with Indonesian citizen, Eka Wahyu Lestari, who is still at large, with Nazrin’s murder.

They are alleged to have committed the offence at a house in Mutiara Homes, Mutiara Damansara, between 11.30pm on June 13, 2018, and 4am on June 14, 2018.

They are charged under Sections 34 and 302 of the Penal Code and face the mandatory death sentence if found guilty.
