Suspects in baby Freddie abduction freed as pair have alibis

KUALA LUMPUR - Police have released two suspects involved in the abduction of baby Freddie Joseph.

City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ku Chin Wah said the pair were released on Nov 8 after police were satisfied with their alibis.

"We have not made any new arrests and there have been no positive developments in the case so far," SAC Ku told a press conference at the police contingent headquarters here.

The 39-year-old Filipino woman and her 53-year-old local boyfriend were arrested on Nov 10, a day after Freddie was found at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa. The woman had worked for Freddie's family for about a year until six months ago.

At the press conference, reporters were shown a three-minute CCTV footage of the abduction.

It showed a white Toyota Camry parked in front of Freddie's house in Bangsar and a man wearing gloves and sunglasses then stepping out of the car and putting on a cap.

He coolly walks with crossed arms across the road to Freddie's house (located outside the CCTV camera's field of view) and then runs out carrying Freddie in his arms.

The car's front passenger door opens and he passes Freddie to an awaiting passenger who is also wearing sunglasses.
