Remember the iconic mural in Shah Alam dedicated to several national leaders, and how it was smeared with red paint?
Well, the three women that were suspected of vandalising it have been questioned by police, and released over insufficient evidence to link them to the crime.
“They were called by the police three weeks ago on suspicion of being involved in the crime, but investigation found they were not involved, said Selangor police chief Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin.
“We are still working with Bukit Aman to identify the suspects involved in the case,” he added.
CCTV footage showing glimpses of two women caught in the act, and it went viral on social media on July 20th.
The “Malaysia’s Heroes” mural, painted by local artist Suhaimi Ali, featured the faces of KDYMM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Health Director-General Tan Sri Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah, Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri and Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Senator Datuk Dr. Haji Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri.
It was only up for about two weeks before the incident, after which the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) had it painted over.
