BATU CAVES, May 4, 2015:Some 30 or so members of the Familia Myvi Club (FMC) today showed up again at the home of family members of those who had lost their lives in the accident at Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway (Duke). Their presence, which was welcomed by the brother of accident victim Fairuz Nizam Husain, was to show support for the family and responsibility over the incident. Speaking to The Rakyat Post when met here, Hairul Safuan, who called himself the “number two” in the club, also attempted to clarify the incident. “We came here on the basis of humanity, to show support and responsibility as club members. We are also human, we understand.”
When asked about those involved, Hairul said while all six were identified and already had their statements recorded by police, he couldn’t comment on whether they had actually been racing the night of the fatal accident. “We will leave it to authorities to find out. But should those involved be found guilty, we will take away their membership.”
Fairuz Nizam’s youngest brother Muhammad Faizznur Asyraf Husain, 25, said he wanted to give them a chance to meet his family and clear their name. “In fact, they wanted to come and see me yesterday to clear those who were not involved because they were also scared for their safety, due to their association with the club,” said Faizznur. To him, the task ahead now was to find out who the culprits were and to care for his two nieces, left orphaned by the accident, Nur Firuza Amira, 7, and Nur Firuza Aqila, 4. “Fairuz was always jolly. But in the past two weeks, he has been looking tired. One day last week he told me to take care of our mother, his wife, children and his business should anything happen to him. “He said everything that was earned from the business should go to his children,” Faizznur recalled, adding that he had to figure out how to run his brother’s event management company where he himself was the administration executive. He also expressed gratitude for the immense support he had been receiving from friends and the public at large.
“I feel blessed. I am not alone and there are so many who are concerned for us, especially my nieces who have been orphaned, and who only have their grandmother and uncles now.”
The accident at 12.45am on Saturday claimed the life of Fairuz Nizam, 35, who was driving his Mitsubishi Pajero towards Ampang. Also on board were his wife, Nova Safitri Azhari, 27, and their infant daughter, Nur Firuza Annisa. Both died in the accident. They were returning home after attending a wedding reception in Putrajaya when a Perodua Myvi was reported to have rear-ended the Pajero, resulting in Fairuz losing control and swerving towards the left lane. A second Myvi car then crashed into the Pajero, forcing it to roll over several times before all three occupants were flung out of the Pajero.
