Have RCI to find out motive behind Altantuya murder, DAP tells Najib

Instead of clearing his name over the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu through a website post, Datuk Seri Najib Razak should call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) to find who ordered the death of the Mongolian interpreter, DAP’s parliamentary leader said.

Gelang Patah MP Lim Kit Siang said Najib should not prolong the setting up of the RCI any longer, and that it should include a probe into why authorities, including the police, the attorney-general and the judiciary had not looked into the motive of the murder.

“If Najib is really concerned about ensuring justice for himself and the country’s institutions, particularly the rule of law and his credibility and reputation over Altantutya’s murder, he should not delay any further but should immediately set up an RCI,” Lim said in a statement today.

The DAP stalwart was responding to Najib’s recent blog posting, in which the prime minister had said that it was “unfair” to force him to re-open the Altantuya case, especially since the judicial process had been exhausted.

“It is unfair to force me to investigate this case again and demand to know who, if anyone, had ordered the killing,” he said.

“I am not involved and do not know anything about it. The court has determined who was guilty of the murder. That should be the end of the story.

“Despite the court’s lengthy deliberation and judgement, the ample time given to the appellants to have their case heard and judged, my ‘sumpah laknat’, the repeated denials I have made, the public explanations provided by Abdul Razak Baginda, some people continue to question the issue and keep trying to implicate me.”

“Sumpah laknat” is the Malay term for a sworn oath recited in a mosque.

Razak, a political analyst who was Najib’s confidante at the time, was acquitted of abetting Altantuya’s murder in 2006.

But? former police commandos Sirul Azhar Umar and Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri were found guilty by the Federal Court after a final round of appeal and sentenced to death.

Sirul, who escaped to Australia where he is being held in detention, said that he was under orders to kill Altantuya.
