Datuk Lawyer, Brother And Six Others Arrested For Sosilawati's Murder...

BANTING, Sept 12 (Bernama) -- Police arrested a "Datuk" lawyer, his younger brother, also a lawyer, and six workers of an oil palm plantation here where cosmetic millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others were murdered.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department Director Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Zinin said the suspects admitted that they took the victims to the four-hectare plantation, bludgeoned them to death and burned their bodies.

They later scattered the ashes at a river near the Ladang Gadong, Tanjong Sepat, here, Mohd Bakri told a news conference at the Kuala Langat district police headquarters.

Mohd Bakri said police picked up five of the suspects on Friday.

Yesterday, police arrested the Datuk and his brother, attached with a law firm here, while the eighth suspect was arrested on Sunday.

Apart from Sosilawati, the others murdered were her driver Kamaruddin Shamsudin, 44, CIMB Kampung Baru bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, and her personal lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32.

They were reported missing since Aug 30 after going here purportedly for a dealing related to a land purchase.

Mohd Bakri, however, could not confirm the date the murder took place but said that it could be anytime between the day they were reported missing and yesterday.

On the motive of the incident, Mohd Bakri said it pointed towards business rivalry between the two lawyers and Sosilawati. -- BERNAMA

This is all about greed, greed, greed. Imagine the horrific crime was masterminded by the Datuk lawyer and his brother, also a lawyer.

Sure give a bad name to the profession.

My condolences to the families of the victims.
