Bandar Seri Begawan - The investigation into a murdered Malaysian woman whose body was cemented to a wall of her friend's house will be concluded in a few weeks' time.
Royal Brunei Police Force Commissioner Pehin Orang Kaya Pendikar Alam Dato Paduka Seri Hj Hasrin Dato Paduka Hj Sabtu is confident that the case will be solved soon.
"At the moment, I can confirm that one person has been brought in for questioning," he said.
When asked whether the RBPF will share the information with the Malaysian Police in Miri, Pehin Dato Hj Hasrin said they will do so out of courtesy if asked.
"The case is in our jurisdiction so our team will be responsible to investigate it, but we will share the information if asked," he said.
Meanwhile, it was reported in the Channel News Asia website that the autopsy of the deceased, Voon Su Ching, 39, had been completed and the police were still waiting for the post-mortem result to determine the cause of death.
RBPF spokesman Pengiran Abdul Salam Ghani was reported as saying that the body of the victim was returned to the family and repatriated to Malaysia.
Voon who came from Sarawak, ran a car wash business and lived with her husband and a son in Brunei.
It was reported that prior to her murder, Voon had gone to the friend's house where she was given a set of keys to keep an eye on the bungalow for the owner who was away for the Chinese New Year holiday. However, when the owner returned a few days later, she saw a three-metre cemented slab in the garden and there was stench coming from it.
The owner immediately made a police report on that led to the discovery of Voon's body, five days after she went missing. Friends described Voon as cheerful and friendly person who loved to joke.--Courtesy of The Brunei Times
