SHAH ALAM, March 24 — The family of Aminulrasyid Amzah, the 14-year-old killed by a patrolling police officer during a midnight joyride through the suburban streets of Shah Alam six years ago, won today their protracted court battle for damages against the government.
High Court Judge Datuk Ahmad Zaidi Ibrahim in his ruling favouring the family said the then officer Jenain Subi had gone against the Inspector-General’s Standing Orders (IGSO) when he opened fire during the incident.
“The defendant’s action was careless, excessive and it went against the IGSO,” Ahmad Zaidi said in his court here.
He then ordered Jenain and other defendants to pay RM150,000 for damages caused by pain and suffering, another RM150,000 for aggravated damages.
The judge also ordered Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, who was the Selangor police chief the time, to pay RM100,000 for public misfeasance. Read more
