Where is Shokri Nor?

A year after Shokri Nor, 50, fled Singapore sometime in July 2012, The New Paper found the fugitive moving about freely in a housing estate in the town of Sungai Petani, in the Malaysian state of Kedah.

At that time, the Malaysian, who had been a police officer for more than 20 years, was making a living by helping his wife with her bridal business.

Surprised that his whereabouts had been exposed, Shokri refused to grant an interview. His wife and teenage daughter spoke on his behalf.

His teenage daughter, who declined to be named, had then told TNP: "I don't want to be rude, but this isn't something we need right now.

"What if the authorities come and arrest my father? Why is Singapore so interested in knowing all about my father's situation?"

Shokri's whereabouts are currently unknown.
