'She should not have been treated in this manner'
PORT DICKSON: Malaysia's Consul-General in Melbourne Dr Mohamad Rameez Yahaya, 42, regards his mother's murder as inhumane and that the perpetrator must receive the appropriate sentence.
He said the murder was tragic and very sad. "It was very cruel because my mother is old and she should not have been treated in this manner. I hope the police can nab the suspect and charge him in court," he told reporters here yesterday.
On Monday, the 70-year-old retired teacher was found dead with both her hands and feet tied near her house in Jalan Taman lama here at 8.10am.
Her body was found in a garage besides her house by a worker who was carrying out renovation work nearby.
Dr Mohamad Rameez said he received the sad news through telephone from Port Dickson police chief Supt Baljeet Singh at about 11.10am yesterday (Melbourne time) and flew back to Malaysia.
"I arrived at the house (Port Dickson) today at about 7am. To me, my mother is a person who had done good deeds as a teacher for three decades and you will never get a mother like her," said Dr Mohamad Rameez, who is the younger of two siblings.
He said although they were far apart, he always contacted his mother, who lived alone, and the last time was in July.
Her remains was sent to the Masjid Jamek Datuk Abdullah Sijang for prayers before burial at the Port Dickson Muslim cemetery. - Bernama
