The Murder of Jalil Ibrahim

Long before the Mongolian case, we had the BMF scandal. Bumiputra Malaysia Finance auditor Jalil Ibrahim was assigned to investigate dubious loans to the Carrian Group in Hong Kong. He was strangled to death in a Hong Kong hotel room in 1983 and his body dumped in undergrowth in a village.

The problem was the convicted killer did not appear to have a real motive. The scandal proved to the forerunner of all the other corruption scandals in our country.
