DPP must have been killed because of his cases, says brother
Inconsolable: Relatives supporting a distraught Richard after he arrived at the Hospital Kuala Lumpur mortuary to identify his brother’s body.

KUALA LUMPUR - The grieving youngest brother of Deputy Public Prosecutor Anthony Kevin Morais has called for justice to be done against those who killed him.

When met outside the Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) mortuary, 49-year-old Datuk Richard Morais said his brother must have been killed because of the cases he was involved in.

"I don't know what to say. This is not a normal death," said a teary-eyed Richard after the body of his brother was wheeled into the hospital.

"Everybody knows that this was case-related," he added.

However, Richard said he did not know what case could have caused the 55-year-old to end up dead.

"He was a secretive person. He was very professional about his work. He did not share with his family members. Work came first," he said.

Richard described his brother as a "strict man" who lived for his job and the law.

Another brother, David Morais, said the post-mortem might take up to two days to determine it was Kevin and what killed him.

"It is unbelievable that this can happen to him. We are just waiting for the post-mortem to be over," he said.
