Cops maintain their desire for extradition of Nur Sajat despite being given refuge in Australia

Despite the fact that transgender businesswoman Nur Sajat Kamaruzzaman was given refuge in Australia, the authorities have maintained their determination to pursue her extradition.

According to reports, Bukit Aman Criminal Investigations Department Director Commissioner Datuk Seri Abd Jalil Hassan has not yet been publicly notified of her whereabouts in Australia.

According to them, while they have not received official confirmation that Nur Sajat is in Australia, they may infer this from recent social media comments.

Abd Jalil was quoted as saying in a story by The Star that officially, no confirmation has been received from their embassies and that they will seek extradition in accordance with Australian law.

The senior officer also said that investigations into Nur Sajat’s charges of molestation by Selangor religious officials after her imprisonment earlier this year are still underway.

He stated that they will look into this thoroughly, pushing Nur Sajat to return home on her own will, stating that doing so would enhance police investigations into her abuse claims.

The transgender businesswoman has been pursued by religious authorities and local media for the last several years owing to her gender identification and popularity on social media.

Earlier this year, she reportedly entered Bangkok, Thailand, to avoid a court hearing on allegations of allegedly insulting Islam by wearing feminine apparel while holding a religious event.
