During a press conference outside the courtroom, Charles showed reporters a letter by Selangor police chief Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah, dated April 1, this year, in which it was stated that the police were obligated to update the deceased’s family on the progress of investigation.
“I had sent four letters to the police between March and July, and some of the replies (received) mentioned other things,” he said.
For example, Charles said Selangor deputy CID chief Rusdi Mohd Isa had, on July 22, wrote a reply to him stating that the police had charged the deceased’s friend, who was the driver of the car they were in during the incident.
“We don’t care about the driver and I hope police do not divert attention (away from the issue),” he lamented.
