Najib’s FAQ answers what was not asked

He avoids addressing Sirul’s claim by saying that Dr M should’ve asked his Altantuya questions eight years ago.


At last, we know one thing for sure about Najib. He wants a fight, and he realises that if he is to win, he must answer, refute, and discredit Mahathir Mohamad. The Prime Minister has taken his counter attack to a brave level, releasing a FAQ on his website that seemingly addresses the questions raised by Mahathir. Politically, this is a move he should have made long ago, and perhaps in a public forum.

However, his statements on the Altantuya issue ring somewhat hollow, especially his thinly-veiled jab at Mahathir. It must be seen to be believed. The relevant section reads: “Such influential individuals (Mahathir) have many resources. When the issue erupted, I believe they would still have been able to verify the validity of the allegations. If they believed this to be true, why did they not raise it when the issue erupted eight years ago? Why now?”

The rest is Najib’s mantra on taking a solemn oath, having his name cleared by Pak Lah, who was the Prime Minister at the time, and so on and so forth. Nothing we haven’t heard before, and nothing we won’t ever hear again.

For one thing, Mr Prime Minister, no one is saying that you were the sinister, unseen hand behind the murder of Altantuya. Mahathir is simply asking that the claims of Sirul Azhar be investigated, and that is a reasonable request indeed, considering that Sirul was an elite police officer, and insubordination, let alone the premeditated, brutal murder of a young woman, is not part of the training of any country’s elite police personnel.

Unless Najib is indirectly telling us that our entire elite police force is composed of highly trained possible murderers who could snap at any time and murder someone with C4 explosives, Sirul’s claim that there were higher powers pulling the strings is alarming. It seems only fitting that Najib, as the highest power in the land, would want to investigate the claim. At a time when public confidence in his administration is at an all time low, it would be reassuring to know that the Prime Minister would not allow anyone, even if he is among the high-powered, to escape the long arm of the law.
