SINGAPORE: A 23-year-old Malaysian man was charged on Wednesday here with the murder of a cleaning supervisor at the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal last month.
Ahmad Muin Yaacob is alleged to have committed the murder by causing the death of his colleague, Maimunah Awang, 54, at the ferry terminal on Tanah Merah Ferry Road between 9am and 1pm on Nov 24.
Muin was arrested by the Malaysian police on Dec 18 following a warrant of arrest issued by the State Courts.
He was subsequently handed over to the Singapore police the next day.
Maimunah’s body was found in a 2m-deep drain at the terminal behind a sub-station near her rest area. Her gold jewellery she usually wore were missing.
Muin was remanded for a week for investigation.
The case will be mentioned on Dec 28.
If convicted of murder, he faces the death penalty. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network/thestar
