A medical officer told the Shah Alam High Court today of heat-induced marks on the body of Cradle Fund chief executive officer Nazrin Hassan, who was found dead during a fire at home on June 14, 2018.

The prosecution’s 26th witness, Dr Nur Shafaradila Shamsul Anuar, who is a medical officer at the Sg Buloh hospital, said the heat-induced marks indicated that Nazrin had not moved while his room on the upper floor of his house was on fire.

The doctor said this while testifying in Nazrin’s murder trial before judge Ab Karim Ab Rahman.

“I saw that the victim’s body was sprawled and there were burnt marks on the head and the body.

“I also noticed the victim was exposed to heat but not directly from the flames. These marks happen when the victim does not move from the source of the fire,” she said.

Nur Shafaradila said when she arrived at the scene of the incident at about 1.12pm, Nazrin was not breathing, his body was stiff, and he had no pulse.

“I examined the right side of his neck and his right hand and there was no pulse. I confirmed his death at 1.13pm,” she said when replying to questions from Deputy public prosecutor Siti Rohaida Che Hamid on the condition of Nazrin’s body.

Meanwhile, Nur Shafaradila also told the court that Nazrin’s wife, Samirah Muzaffar showed no reaction when informed her husband was dead.

“The victim’s wife showed no reaction…no expressions of shock and she did not cry as well.

“From my experience, those who lose their family members, especially their spouses, will show some shock and sadness, but I saw no reaction from the wife,” she said.

Samirah, 45, a former senior executive at the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia, and two teenagers, aged 17 and 14, have been charged along with Indonesian citizen Eka Wahyu Lestari, who is still at large, with Nazrin’s murder.

They were 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.

The trial continues tomorrow.
