 A 23-year-old Libyan man is expected to be charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code at a magistrate’s court here with the murder of assistant manager Wan Amirah Wan Alias, who was killed in a hit-and-run accident two weeks ago in Cyberjaya.

The man is also expected to be charged under Section 326 of the Penal Code with voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means on Monday (Oct 29).

He is facing another drug-related charge under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.


Two of his friends, who are Yemeni, are facing separate drug-related charges under the same Section 15(1)(a).

Viral CCTV footage of the accident showed Wan Amirah being hit by a car and dragged along the street at Shaftsbury Square, as she was crossing the road at 7.35pm on Oct 17.

The incident has angered residents, who say reckless driving is an issue in Cyberjaya.

The three men were arrested at about midnight on Oct 18 at Pusat Bandar Putra Permai in Seri Kembangan and at Verdi Residence in Cyberjaya, along with a Sabahan woman in connection with the incident.

However, the Sabahan woman was later released.

All four are students at an international university in Cyberjaya. – The Star
