RELATIVES and close friends of the late Chin Mei Fong, who was found sexually assaulted and murdered in Bukit Shahbandar on September 7, made a further appeal to the public yesterday for any information on the whereabouts of the two persons of interest whom the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) believe could be “crucial witnesses”.
As of yesterday, there has not been any trace of the two persons of interest.
The husband of the late Chin Mei Fong was among those who pasted flyers of the photofit of the two persons of interest onto the walls of convenience stores, restaurants and a construction site around Jerudong and Sengkurong yesterday.
Flyers were also passed around at areas frequented by foreign workers.
It is understood that the flyers, which are written in English, Malay, Tagalog and Tamil, would also be distributed at embassies and bus terminals.
“This is the only thing we can do to help,” said the frail-looking husband of the late Chin Mei Fong.
“As there are some people who do not use social media or read the news, we hope that these flyers would help spread the word that the police are looking for these two persons of interest.
“I hope that someone would alert the police about their whereabouts.”
He also hopes that anyone who was at Bukit Shahbandar on September 7 would come forward to provide any information to the police.
“Every bit of information counts … no matter how small it may be, as it could be crucial to the police,” he said. “We must catch the culprit for not only murdering my wife but also to keep the public safe.”
He also appealed to the public not to circulate baseless speculations regarding the case in the social media.
Last Friday, the RBPF released the photofit of the two persons of interest. The men are believed to be foreigners.
Both men are believed to be between the ages of 30 and 40. They have short, black hair and very dark skin tone. Both men are slim build and are 5’5 to 5’7 tall.
Members of the public with any information on their whereabouts can contact the Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Pg Hj Abu Naba’a bin Pg Hj Yusof at 2322004, 2322005, 2322006 or Hotline 993.
Alternatively, they can visit the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at Jln Ong Sum Ping or the nearest police station.
