14-year-old Aminulrasyid Amzah was shot dead by the police in a car chase three years ago.
The Prime Minister wrote to Norsiah Mohamad and promised her “justice and transparency” in pursuing her son’s killers.
“Najib Razak in his letter to me promised a thorough investigation but until today, it was just a promise. Nothing had been done to clear my son’s name,” she shrugged.
The family of 14-year-old Aminulrasyid Amzah, who was shot dead by the police in a car chase three years ago, wants justice.
Producing a letter from Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak that promised her “justice and transparency” in pursuing her son’s killers, Norsiah Mohamad charged today that none of this has been fulfilled.
“Is my son a stray cat – just shoot and throw him away?” Norsiah Mohamad asked reporters gathered at a lawyer’s office in Petaling Jaya.
“If you are not diligent in fulfilling your promises, how can you be the prime minister?”
Norsiah charged that the government has failed to hold anyone accountable, as the only assailant answerable for Aminulrasyid’s death, Corporal Jenain Subi, was acquitted by the Court of Appeal last month.
Helped by lawyers N Surendran and Latheefa Koya, the family will now launch a public campaign to seek justice.

‘Police wrong in Aminulrasyid shootout’
Lawyers urges Attorney General to re-open the case and review the court of appeal’s decision.
PETALING JAYA: There is now a glimpse of hope for Norsiah Mohamad to seek justice for her murdered son – 14 year old Aminulrasyid Amzah who was killed in a high speed police chase on April 26 2010.
This latest revelation was obtained on December 12 2013 during the trial of Norizan Salleh v the Malaysian government, where the police were compelled to produce the Inspector General’s Standing Order (IGSO) on the use of firearms.
Norizan Salleh,33, was shot five times by a group of police officers at the middle ring road (MRR2) in a similar car chase back in 2010.
The latest findings from Norsiah’s lawyer showed that the police officers involved during the night of the incident had breached the standing orders as firearms can only be discharged when the lives of police personnel or public is threatened.
Speaking to reporters Lawyer and Member of Parliament, N. Surendran revealed that Corporal Jenain Subi had clearly breached the IGP’s standing order as he fired 21 rounds at Aminulrasyid’s vehicle .
“We are referring to the IGSO produced during the trial of Norizan Salleh who was also shot indiscriminately by police officers. It is now clear that police officers had breached the standing order,”
“A weapon can only be discharged when the lives of police officers are in danger or the public is in danger. But looking at Aminulrasyid’s case, the police were not in danger and Aminulrasyid was merely trying to get away from the police,” he said.
