Man who accused Orang Asli for Nora Anne’s death charged

KUALA LUMPUR: A man who posted a tweet alleging that French-Irish teenager Nora Anne Quoirin was raped by Orang Asli was charged at the Magistrate’s Court today.

Muhammad Zikri Ibrahim, 29, was accused of committing intentional insult with intent to provoke a breach of the peace via his Twitter account “Zikri Armstrong” at 8.30pm on Aug 14.

He was charged under Section 504 of the Penal Code and faces a jail term of up to two years, a fine or both, if convicted.

The telemarketing manager pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Lawyer Muhammad Syazwan Mohd Salleh, who represented Zikri, requested for a lower amount, as his client was getting married in Dec.

“His father is here and ready to be his bailor,” Syazwan said.

On that note, Magistrate Noorasyikin Sahat fixed bail at RM6,000 with one surety.

The case is set for mention on Sept 19.

Nora Anne, a special needs teenager, went missing a day after checking in with her family into The Dusun Resort in Seremban for a holiday.

A wide-scale search was carried out following her disappearance. Her remains were found 10 days later.

The post-mortem results showed that Nora Anne died of starvation and the police concluded that there was no foul play in her death.
