In a statement issued yesterday, State Police Commissioner Datuk Mazlan Mansor said police would not stop in their attempts to pursue Lee, who is currently believed to be in Australia, as well as another still-at-large individual implicated in the murder.

“State police wishes to confirm that efforts are underway through Interpol Malaysia to track down Datuk Stephen Lee Chee Kiang, who is now overseas.

“Our efforts will not cease until Datuk Stephen Lee and another still-at-large suspect are brought to face justice,” he said.

Mazlan was responding to a statement by state PKR chief Baru Bian who, in an online news portal, questioned why the alleged mastermind continued to remain free three months after Bill’s slaying.

Baru was reported to have said that he had enquired with Interpol last month as to whether the agency had sought assistance from Australian police to detain Lee.

He also asked if any extradition request had been made by the government, but had not received any response to date.

Bill, a vocal native customary rights (NCR) land activist and PKR Miri branch secretary, was killed in a drive-by shooting on June 21 while waiting in his vehicle at a traffic light intersection on his way to his office.
