Former judge Yusoff dies

PETALING JAYA: Retired Supreme Court judge Tan Sri Mohamed Yusoff Mohamed died at 4.20pm at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital after suffering a stroke yesterday. He was 81.

Mohamed Yusof leaves behind a wife and eight children.

According to his son Harmy, 43, Mohamed Yusoff suffered the severe stroke while travelling to his home in Kuala Lumpur from Kuala Terengganu on Feb 21.

He then slipped into a coma.

“We have lost the rock in our family as he had always held all of us together. He taught us very well.

“Because of him, three of us followed in his footsteps and became lawyers,” Harmy said.

Harmy, who has a private legal practice, said that his mother Puan Sri Rosita Harisun and his siblings were with Yusof when he died.

Mohamed Yusoff served as a High Court judge between 1974 and 1988 and was elevated to the Supreme Court before retiring in 1992.

He had also previously served as state secretary in Terengganu, and as legal adviser to the Selangor state government.

He was also chairman and director of several public listed companies, including the Berjaya Group Bhd.

Mohamed Yusoff’s body has been brought back to the family’s home in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa.

The cortege will leave the residence for the Titiwangsa Muslim cemetery at 10am today.
