Christopher Fernando dies

KUALA LUMPUR: Well-known criminal lawyer Christopher Fernando (pic) died at the National Heart Institute (IJN) here last night.

He was admitted to the IJN on Monday after suffering a heart attack.

According to his sister Shahreen Kamalludin, Fernando underwent a triple by-pass surgery but his condition worsened on Friday.

Fernando, whose Muslim name is Aris Rizal Fernando Abdullah, was a former Sessions Court president before he joined a private practice in Seremban.

Many ACA prosecutors and officers did not like going up against Fernando because he often caught them out especially in cases involving entrapment.

He shot to national acclaim when he joined Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s defence team when the former deputy prime minister was charged with abuse of power.

Fernando was married to Maria Kamaruddin who is the sister of former Umno Yourh chief Datuk Suhaimi Kamaruddin. They had two daughters Marissa and Rina.

Shahreen said her brother’s body was taken to a relative’s house at Jalan Titiwangsa here and will be buried at the Muslim cemetery this afternoon.
