French deputies call for probe into Nora’s death to be continued

PETALING JAYA: Two French deputies (equivalent to MPs) representing French citizens living abroad have formally requested authorities here to take necessary steps to shed light into the death of Nóra Quoirin (pix).

The deputies, Anne Genetet and Alexandre Holroyd, said in a letter that every effort must be made by the authorities to provide full transparency concerning her death.

“It is imperative and a fundamental right that Nóra’s family should have access to the truth concerning their daughter’s death, either through the reopening of the investigation or at the very least by making the police report (such as it exists) on the investigation that took place in the summer, available – in order to effectively grieve and mourn her loss,” they said in a statement today.

They added the authorities have prioritised the theory of an accidental death and in doing so, neglected the investigation into alternative hypotheses considered extremely important for the family.

“In addition, internal proceedings under Malaysian law could have reopened the investigation, but the Attorney General has to date refused, and allocated a status of NFA (No Further Action) on this case.

“We await a reversal of this position in order to deliver full transparency and justice in this matter and for the tragedy this family has experienced,” they said.
