IPOH: Police are still tracking down a Myanmar man believed to be involved in the murder of his countryman at a fishing jetty in Jalan Ujung Pasir near Pantai Remis, Manjung, last Sunday.

Perak Deputy Police Chief Datuk Lim Hong Shuan said the suspect who was the victim’s workmate was believed to have been involved in the murder based on closed-circuit television (CCTV) recordings at the location.

“We are still tracking down the suspect to help in the investigations. Both of them (the victim and suspect) did not have valid travel documents and have only been working at the fish jetty for two months,” he said.

Lim was speaking to reporters after flagging-off a big bike in-service training convoy (LDP) from the Perak Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) at the Perak Contingent Police Headquarters here today.

Last Sunday, passers-by found the blood-soaked body of a man with head wounds at about 3.10am.

Lim said police checks at the location found a piece of blood-stained wood near the victim’s body.

Earlier, in his speech, Lim said 17 officers and 52 members of the state were involved in the LDP convoy which began yesterday until Thursday, covering a distance of 882.1km through four states — Perak, Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang. — Bernama
