Cops say still want to extradite Nur Sajat despite asylum granted in Australia

The police have insisted their intentions to continue pursuing extradition for transgender entrepreneur Nur Sajat Kamaruzzaman, despite the latter being granted asylum in Australia.

(MMO) – Bukit Aman Criminal Investigations Department Director Commissioner Datuk Seri Abd Jalil Hassan was reported saying that the police have yet to be formally informed of her status in Australia.

“Formally we still have not received confirmation that Nur Sajat is in Australia, however, we can see [that] based on recent social media postings.

“Officially, we have not received the confirmation from our embassies. We will try [to extradite] according to the laws [of] Australia,” Abd Jalil was quoted saying in a report by The Star.

The senior officer also revealed how investigations are still ongoing into Nur Sajat’s allegations of molest against her by Selangor religious authorities during her arrest earlier this year.

“We will investigate the matter from all angles,” he said, urging Nur Sajat to return home on her own volition, saying this could assist police investigations into her abuse claims.
