Controversial cosmetics entrepreneur Nur Sajat, who is being sought after by local authorities is currently in Sydney, Australia.

According to MStar, Nur Sajat said during a TikTok livestream that she is currently residing in Canterbury, a suburb located 12km from Sydney, New South Wales, and she was looking to start afresh.

The fugitive cosmetic entrepreneur said that she is currently under Covid-19 quarantine in Sydney, and she will meet up with an agent regarding employment matters.

According to Nur Sajat, she chose to relocate to Australia as the country would accept her.

She also denied that she was running away from authorities in Malaysia.

“I’m not running away. I’m migrating. All this while I was quiet because I wanted to open a new shop at a new location and thank you for the support.”

According to the Malay Mail, citing a video posted on Instagram, Sajat also asked her critics to leave her to her own religious beliefs, adding that she was leaving Malaysia permanently.

“If I’m still Muslim, just let me be with my own ways, and you follow your own ways.

“Don’t judge me. We respect each other. Stop calling me a sinner as well… Thank you, I appreciate all of your advice.”

She also said she was now under Covid-19 quarantine in Australia and would meet with an agent for employment. Sajat said she chose Australia because the country prioritised human rights, adding that she was now free.

“What else do we want? We want freedom. So, human rights are important here. They (Australia) really prioritise human rights. I don’t want anything, I just want human rights,” she said.

Sajat also said she had liquidated all her business interests in Malaysia and was looking forward to providing more opportunities to other Malaysians once she settles in.

“Please respect me as a human being. That’s all,” she added.

Nur Sajat was reportedly detained by Thai authorities on Sept 8 for having an invalid passport.

She was then fined and is believed to be seeking refuge under the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

Nur Sajat is presently wanted for multiple offences in Malaysia, including criminal intimidation and preventing civil servants from performing their duties.
