Why is Anwar looking "takut kerana salah"?

Here we go again. This time it is Clintonesque in nature, i.e. internship problem.

Like revisiting 1999, a police report was made against Anwar Ibrahim by his personal assistant on Saturday at 5:45 pm at the Jalan Traver police station claiming sodomy. The report is available here at Rocky Bru's.

Expectedly, Anwar denied in a press release made through PKR's Vice President, Sivarasa on Sunday.

Wan Azizah claimed conspiracy and showed the picture of Saiful Bukhary (in blue in the picture on the right) with Khairul Anas of the DPM's office. Since then pictures of Saiful with Tok Pa and Shahrir Samad appears leading many to claim he is a Government stooge.

If Abdullah is in the habit of blaming Dr Mahathir whenever something unfavourable crops up, Anwar's natural tendency is to blame Najib. With too much conspiracy theories these days shrouding many events, nothing seemed rational and belieavable any more. Then there is the Malaysians tendency to be partisan and personality driven.

But the right position is to let the police do its investigation. Should there be sufficient evidence, then the judicial process takes its course with the finality lies with the judge/(s). From his own incompetence, Zaid Ibrahim has proven that it is the deception by ass-licking politicians and hypocritical judges and lawyers making unsubstantiated claims that smeared the judiciaryit. The judicial system is generally fine.

My comment on Rocky Bru's posting is edited and reproduced to dispell some of these inconclusive doubt creating conspiracy theories and let the the due process take its course.

Saiful's Picture

Putting up the picture of Saiful next to someone from TPM's office at TPM's office is a great fodder for conspiracy theories and throwing doubts, but it is not conclusive to assume of linkage.

In the picture, Saiful don't look comfortable in those ties. Could the picture be taken in one of his visits to Ministers' office as student leader?

So he is an eager beaver who loves taking photos. Its not conclusive to claim he is Najib's or anyone's stooge in Anwar's office. In fact, what about the possibility Saiful is Anwar's stooge in thsoe Minister's office?

Wan Azizah claimed that they do not have sufficient information on the background of Saiful. She said he was a volunter from the recent GE12 and taken by Anwar as assistant to replace Nik Nazmi.

Its not easy to swallow Wan Azizah's excuse. Anwar can't be that reckless. Furthermore, Wan Azizah and Nurul Izah are no just fillial wife and daughter but they are also politicians. They now know how to twist and turn words.

For a fact, Anwar's former assitance, now ADUN Seri Setia and political Secretary to Selangor Menteri Besar, Nik Nazmi has friends in the Tingkat 4. Can it be assumed he is a stooge of Tingkat 4 in PKR?

Abdullah's Conspiracy?

Predictably in such a situation involving a politician and more so in the case of Anwar Ibrahim, there will be a psywar at work. They are blaming Barisan Nasional and UMNO conspiracy game. So it is not Tun this time.

Does Abdullah have the aptitude and guts to cook up such conspiracy?

Running to the Embassy of an American stooge what Anwar is doing running to the Turkish Embassy would easily have scare off Abdullah.

It won't look right for Anwar to go to the American, British, Singaporean or any quai lo embassies. It will raise more conspiracies on Anwar.

Other than that, there are six probable reasons to dispell the notion that Abdullah is behind it.

One, Abdullah set up the two MCOBA buddy judges to help Anwar free. In actual fact, there is no more legal recourse after Federal Court dismissed the case.Abdullah was reluctant to carry Dr Mahathir's baggage. WIll he want to create another?

Two, it is confirmed that Khairy was in communication with Ezam to help Anwar get his medical treatment. Remember the passport delivery?

Three, Abdullah and Anwar had a close cordial relationship. It is glaringly obvious that Anwar never attack Abdullah hard. His excuse was of family ties.

Four, it is stupid and unreal to use the same conspiracy trick again, if there had been one in the first place. It would be stupid to do a predictable conspiracy. Moreover, it is proven to have back fired in the past. Abdullah would not risk it with his shaky political situation. In fact, could be Anwar's conspiracy as the impetus to public sentiment support to get MPs to crossover.

Five, Anwar and Abdullah has mutual interest. Anwar has privately expressed interest to return to UMNO. No news reported any annoucement of his PKR membership. Anwar is a convenient ally for Abdullah to ward off challenges on his leadership. In fact, Anwar and Abdullah's Tingkat 4 has common agenda, both not liked by Malay Nationalist.

Six, there are those in the know of cooperation between Anwar and Abdullah on matter other than politics.

Believing only few of the above is sufficient to say that it can't be Abdullah.

How About Najib?

Will it be possible Najib is trying to set up Anwar since he is viewed as a quite sleepy lion that could be lethal with a moment's jump?

But could he do so without resources at his disposal?

When Anwar was making wild allegations since Ijok's by election, Najib did nothing. He could have made police report for contempt of court or sue him. Indeed, he would have won, but he didn't sue.

So why must he take a riskier option to get someone to "tadah bontot"?! These days anyone can squell or the right price.

Stick to Something Conclusive

Be it Altantunya's murder or Anwar's sodomy police report, stick only to conclusive fact of evidences, motive, and undebatable arguments. Refute any allegatiosn of police abuse or judicial tampering, it is a preemptive excuse for face saving for eventuality.

In short, someone made a police report and it will be investigated. If there is sufficient evidence, it will be brought to the court. Let the court decide!

Zaid Ibrahim and RC has not proven conclusively that the judiciary system is wrong, even for teh case of Tun Salleh Abas. Only people is wrong - judges and lawyers. Nevertheless, the judiciary has sufficent mechanism for appeal as long as it is based on fact and not cooked-up doubt creating conspiracy.

The troubling thing now is why Anwar is no more in his "berani kerana benar" self but looking more "takut kerana salah"?

Doubt there are threat on his life to warrant him to hide in the Turkish Embassy. Fear from the from staunch Reformasi people perhaps?

Kepimpinan politik negara kita daripada PM, TPM, Menteri, MB, KM, Exco baik dari parti Kerajaan mahupun pembangkang dan macai-macai mereka kini sedang sibuk. Sibuk mempertahankan diri mereka masing-masing daripada segala macam masalah dan tragedi politik.

Sedangkan mereka sepatutnya mempertahan dan memperjuangkan nasib rakyat ketika kita sedang berhadapan dengan masalah-masalah berbangkit akibat daripada kenaikan harga minyak.

Saya tidak puas hati. Mereka tidak melaksanakan amanah yang diberikan oleh rakyat kepada mereka. Wakil rakyat kita makan gaji buta!!

Tidak sedar diri dan memalukan negara.

Just would like to add that Anwar was not really 100% free of his sodomy conviction because the Federal Court did find evidence of the sodomy. The Court did not prefer to convict Anwar based merely on ONE man's evidence. That' all. The sodomy conviction was overturned by the Federal Cpourt based on technical consideration. Anwar should have asked the Court to expunge "the sodomy evidence". He didnt!! He cannot INSIST that he was MORALLY innocent from the sodomy charge!!

Bro Voicy,

Rite on d spot,..heheh..wat can I say..(",) I believe if we take into account our logics den I wud say bro Saiful is planted to spy on BN's camp as it woz definitely b4 PRU12.. if he is a spy to BN planted in bro AnWar's camp wud he have exposed himself as he has been in d company of BN leaders such as Azalina, Shahrir n Tok Pa.. my take is he is planted by AnWar to gather info & of coz he returned to AnWar's camp wth info b4 pru12..

Letting the time pass me by said...

This new story will give me another puzzling questions... is there any truth in it? The last time we heard about the case, the judges believe that it can happen but the only thing is that the evidence is not concrete enough to put it beyond reasonable doubt...

Maybe the new story will become more puzzling .... can a 60 year old grandfather really force and sodomize a 23 year (old) young guy?

Can't see why is it so surprising or scandalous about a former student leader/activist having taken some pictures at places where such a former student leader/activist would go. It is too apparently stupid that the government would cook up this one, why risk the court of public opinion again after Anwar emerged from the one 10 years ago somewhat a hero?

The way I look at it is that Najib is the main victim. Already all the fingers are pointing to him.

What worse could happen? After 2-3 days, upon police investigation, they claim that the allegation was a fabrication (though I doubt they will reveal the real motive of the fabrication). Then a public opinion would be created and you know who would indeed carry all the baggages.

The image of Anwar will be boosted and his political enemy will be casted to doom.

From the Office of Anwar Ibrahim: Press Statement - for immediate release
3 July 2008, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia
Today we witness another episode of a consistent pattern of abuse of power and manipulation of the criminal justice system.
Recently one of the witnesses in the Altantuya trial approached us with detailed information of events connected to her disappearance and murder. The information was shocking.
Mr. P. Balasubramaniam, who was engaged by Abdul Razak Baginda as a private investigator was advised to seek legal counsel and document his story independently.
Today he is releasing a statutory declaration dated 1st July 2008 to the public detailing the story that he has to tell about what actually happened and what was told to him by key personalities in this saga including Abdul Razak Baginda and Altantuya herself.
These revelations speak for themselves. They reveal, amongst others, the following allegations:
1.Mr. Balasubramaniam was engaged by Abdul Razak Baginda to deal with alleged harassment by Altantuya in relation to debts owed to her (Paragraph 5 and 6).
2.Altantuya was promised a commission of USD 500,000 for assisting in a submarine deal in Paris (Paragraph 22, Paragraph 25.5 and Paragraph 28.2 and 28.3 ).
3.Altantuya was introduced to Razak Baginda by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at a diamond exhibition in Singapore ( Paragraph 25.5 and Paragraph 28.1).
4.Altantuya, Datuk Seri Najib and Razak Baginda had all been seen together at a dinner in Paris (Paragraph 28.2).
5.After the disappearance of Altantuya, a commotion took place in front of Razak Baginda’s house several days after 20 December 2006 where girl friends of Altantuya and one Mr.Ang (Altantuya’s own private investigator) arrived searching for Altantuya. Balasubramaniam had to call the police. A patrol car arrived shortly. Shortly thereafter an investigating officer from Dang Wangi Police Station who was handling the missing persons report lodged by one of Altantuya’s girl friends arrived. Balasubramaniam then informed Razak Baginda who was at home to inform him of the events taking place at his front gate. Razak then called one DSP Musa Safri who called him back informing him that Musa would be calling him on his handphone and that he was to pass the phone to the inspector from Dang Wangi Police station. Balasubramaniam then received the call from Musa Safri and duly passed the phone to the inspector. After the conversation of 3 - 4 minutes, the inspector told the girls to disperse and to see him the next day (Paragraphs 34 - 38). We believe DSP Musa Safri was aide-de-camp to Datuk Seri Najib at the material time.
6.Balasubramaniam was interrogated at Bukit Aman for seven consecutive days and his statement recorded at the end of November 2006. He says that he told the police all that he knew including everything Razak Baginda and Altantuya had told him about their relationships with Najib. These details were omitted from the statement he was asked to sign (Paragraph 49).
7.During the trial of Sirul, Azilah and Razak Baginda at at the Shah Alam High Court, the prosecutor did not ask him any questions in respect of the relationship Altantuya had with Datuk Seri Najib or of the phone call that he had received form DSP Musa Safri (Paragraph 50).
8.When Razak Baginda was arrested, Balasubramaniam was told by him that he had sent an SMS messsage to Najib the evening before (Paragraph 51). Razak also informed Balasubramaniam that he had received an SMS from Najib and showed it to him; the message read “I am seeing IGP at 11 A.M. today …. matter will be solved … be cool”.
Mr. Balasubramaniam’s evidence also mentions the extent of the relationship between Altantuya and Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. We are not interested in the personal nature of the relationship. That is entirely his own business and hers.
However the allegations revealed by him raise key questions of public interest:
a)Suppression of evidence by the police investigating officers and those responsible for prosecuting this case. Such suppression could only have happened with the full knowledge of top public officials such as the IGP and the AG.
b)The question is also raised as to whether such suppression of evidence was the reason behind the last minute switch in DPP’s handling the case - where the head of the Criminal Division of the AG’s Chambers, Datuk Yusuf Zainal Abiden was completely sidelined from the case leading him and the senior DPP originally slotted for the case Sallehudin Saidin to put in papers for early retirement some months later.
c)Questions can be raised now with regard to the sudden switching of the judge fixed to hear the case which took place in March 2007 - why was this really done?
d) Did Datuk Seri Najib lie when he said that he had never met Altantuya before?
e) Did Datuk Seri Najib lie when he said that he was not involved in any commission deals for the purchases of the Scorpene submarines”
Mr.Balasubramaniam’s evidence vindicate what we have been saying all along; there has been no proper investigation of the murder of Altantuya and the investigation and proceedings in court seem to following a pre-arranged script for a pre-arranged outcome.
This has serious implications for the administration of justice in the country where the integrity and credibility of our key institutions such as the police, the AG’s chambers and the judiciary are already severely tarnished.
Today’s revelations further confirm a clear and consistent pattern of manipulation of the criminal justice system that we have witnessed in this country since 1998.
The allegations revealed here warrant a full Royal Commission of Inquiry.
— Statutory Declaration by Balasubramaniam a/l Perumal —
[ PDF Version ]
I, Balasubramaniam a/l Perumal (NRIC NO: xxxxxx-xx-6235) a Malaysian Citizen of full age and residing at xxxxx, Selangor do solemly and sincerely declare as follows :-
1. I have been a police officer with the Royal Malaysian Police Force having jointed as a constable in 1981 attached to the Police Field Force. I was then promoted to the rank of lance Corporal and finally resigned from the Police Force in 1998 when I was with the Special Branch.
2. I have been working as a free lance Private Investigator since I left the Police Force.
3. Sometime in June or July 2006, I was employed by Abdul Razak Baginda for a period of 10 days to look after him at his office at the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang between the hours of 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m each working day as apparently he was experiencing disturbances from a third party.
4. I resigned from this job after 2 ½ days as I was not receiving any proper instructions.
5. I was however re-employed by Abdul Razak Baginda on the 05-10-2006 as he had apparently received a harassing phone call from a Chinese man calling himself ASP Tan who had threatened him to pay his debts. I later found out this gentleman was in fact a private investigator called Ang who was employed by a Mongolian woman called Altantuya Shaaribuu.
6. Abdul Razak Baginda was concerned that a person by the name of Altantuya Shaaribuu, a Mongolian woman, was behind this threat and that she would be arriving in Malaysia very soon to try and contact him.
7. Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that he was concerned by this as he had been advised that Altantuya Shaaribuu had been given some powers by a Mongolian ‘bomoh’ and that he could never look her in the face because of this.
8. When I enquired as to who this Mongolian woman was, Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that she was a friend of his who had been introduced to him by a VIP and who asked him to look after her financially.
9. I advised him to lodge a police report concerning the threatening phone call he had received from the Chinese man known as ASP Tan but he refused to do so as he informed me there were some high profile people involved.
10. Abdul Razak Baginda further told me that Altantuya Shaaribuu was a great liar and good in convincing people. She was supposed to have been very demanding financially and that he had even financed a property for her in Mongolia.
11. Abdul Razak Baginda then let me listen to some voice messages on his handphone asking him to pay what was due otherwise he would be harmed and his daughter harassed.
12. I was therefore supposed to protect his daughter Rowena as well.
13. On the 09.10.2006 I received a phone call from Abdul Razak Baginda at about 9.30 a.m. informing me that Altantuya was in his office and he wanted me there immediately. As I was in the midst of a surveillance, I sent my assistant Suras to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office and I followed a little later. Suras managed to control the situation and had persuaded Altantuya and her two friends to leave the premises. However Altantuya left a note written on some Hotel Malaya note paper, in English, asking Abdul Razak Baginda to call her on her handphone (number given) and wrote down her room number as well.
14. Altantuya had introduced herself to Suras as ‘Aminah’ and had informed Suras she was there to see her boyfriend Abdul Razak Baginda.
15. These 3 Mongolian girls however returned to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office at the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang again, the next day at about 12.00 noon. They did not enter the building but again informed Suras that they wanted to meet Aminah’s boyfriend, Abdul Razak Baginda.
16. On the 11.10.2006, Aminah returned to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office on her own and gave me a note to pass to him, which I did. Abdul Razak Baginda showed me the note which basically asked him to call her urgently.
17. I suggested to Abdul Razak Baginda that perhaps it may be wise to arrange for Aminah to be arrested if she harassed him further, but he declined as he felt she would have to return to Mongolia as soon as her cash ran out.
18. In the meantime I had arranged for Suras to perform surveillance on Hotel Malaya to monitor the movements of these 3 Mongolian girls, but they recognized him. Apparently they become friends with Suras after that and he ended up spending a few nights in their hotel room.
19. When Abdul Razak Baginda discovered Suras was becoming close to Aminah he asked me to pull him out from Hotel Malaya.
20. On the 14.10.2006, Aminah turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house in Damansara Heights when I was not there. Abdul Razak Baginda called me on my handphone to inform me of this so I rushed back to his house. As I arrived, I noticed Aminah outside the front gates shouting “Razak, bastard, come out from the house”. I tried to calm her down but couldn’t so I called the police who arrived in 2 patrol cars. I explained the situation to the police, who took her away to the Brickfields police station.
21. I followed the patrol cars to Brickfields police station in a taxi. I called Abdul Razak Baginda and his lawyer Dirren to lodge a police report but they refused.
22. When I was at the Brickfields police station, Aminah’s own Private Investigator, one Mr. Ang arrived and we had a discussion. I was told to deliver a demand to Abdul Razak Baginda for USD$500,000.00 and 3 tickets to Mongolia, apparently as commission owed to Aminah from a deal in Paris.
23. As Aminah had calmed down at this stage, a policewoman at the Brickfields police station advised me to leave and settle the matter amicably.
24. I duly informed Abdul Razak Baginda of the demands Aminah had made and told him I was disappointed that no one wanted to back me up in lodging a police report. We had a long discussion about the situation when I expressed a desire to pull out of this assignment.
25. During this discussion and in an attempt to persuade me to continue my employment with him, Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that :-
25.1 He had been introduced to Aminah by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at a diamond exhibition in Singapore.
25.2 Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak informed Abdul Razak Baginda that he had a sexual relationship with Aminah and that she was susceptible to anal intercourse.
25.3 Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wanted Abdul Razak Baginda to look after Aminah as he did not want her to harass him since he was now the Deputy Prime Minister.
25.4 Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Abdul Razak Baginda and Aminah had all been together at a dinner in Paris.
25.5 Aminah wanted money from him as she felt she was entitled to a USD$500,000.00 commission on a submarine deal she assisted with in Paris.
26. On the 19.10.2006, I arrived at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house in Damansara Heights to begin my night duty. I had parked my car outside as usual. I saw a yellow proton perdana taxi pass by with 3 ladies inside, one of whom was Aminah. The taxi did a U-turn and stopped in front of the house where these ladies rolled down the window and wished me ‘Happy Deepavali’. The taxi then left.
27. About 20 minutes later the taxi returned with only Aminah in it. She got out of the taxi and walked towards me and started talking to me. I sent an SMS to Abdul Razak Baginda informing him “Aminah was here”. I received an SMS from Razak instructing me “To delay her until my man comes”.
28. Whist I was talking to Aminah, she informed me of the following :-
28.1 That she met Abdul Razak Baginda in Singapore with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
28.2 That she had also met Abdul Razak Baginda and Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at a dinner in Paris.
28.3 That she was promised a sum of USD$500,000.00 as commission for assisting in a Submarine deal in Paris.
28.4 That Abdul Razak Baginda had bought her a house in Mongolia but her brother had refinanced it and she needed money to redeem it.
28.5 That her mother was ill and she needed money to pay for her treatment.
28.6That Abdul Razak Baginda had married her in Korea as her mother is Korean whilst her father was a Mongolian/Chinese mix.
28.7 That if I wouldn’t allow her to see Abdul Razak Baginda, would I be able to arrange for her to see Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
29. After talking to Aminah for about 15 minutes, a red proton aeroback arrived with a woman and two men. I now know the woman to be Lance Corporal Rohaniza and the men, Azilah Hadri and Sirul Azahar. They were all in plain clothes. Azilah walked towards me while the other two stayed in the car.
30. Azilah asked me whether the woman was Aminah and I said ‘Yes’. He then walked off and made a few calls on his handphone. After 10 minutes another vehicle, a blue proton saga, driven by a Malay man, passed by slowly. The drivers window had been wound down and the driver was looking at us.
31. Azilah then informed me they would be taking Aminah away. I informed Aminah they were arresting her. The other two persons then got out of the red proton and exchanged seats so that Lance Corporal Rohaniza and Aminah were in the back while the two men were in the front. They drove off and that is the last I ever saw of Aminah.
32. Abdul Razak Baginda was not at home when all this occurred.
33. After the 19.10.2006, I continued to work for Abdul Razak Baginda at his house in Damansara Heights from 7.00 p.m. to 8.00 a.m. the next morning, as he had been receiving threatening text messages from a woman called ‘Amy’ who was apparently ‘Aminah’s’ cousin in Mongolia.
34. On the night of the 20.10.2006, both of Aminah’s girl friends turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house enquiring where Aminah was. I informed them she had been arrested the night before.
35. A couple of nights later, these two Mongolian girls, Mr. Ang and another Mongolian girl called ‘Amy’ turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house looking for Aminah as they appeared to be convinced she was being held in the house.
36. A commotion began so I called the police who arrived shortly thereafter in a patrol car. Another patrol car arrived a short while later in which was the investigating officer from the Dang Wangi Police Station who was in charge of the missing persons report lodged by one of the Mongolians girls, I believe was Amy.
37. I called Abdul Razak Baginda who was at home to inform him of the events taking place at his front gate. He then called DSP Musa Safri and called me back informing me that Musa Safri would be calling handphone and I was to pass the phone to the Inspector from Dang Wangi Police Station.
38. I then received a call on my handphone from Musa Safri and duly handed the phone to the Dang Wangi Inspector. The conversation lasted 3 - 4 minutes after which he told the girls to disperse and to go to see him the next day.
39. On or about the 24.10.2006, Abdul Razak Baginda instructed me to accompany him to the Brickfields police station as he had been advised to lodge a police report about the harassment he was receiving from these Mongolian girls.
40. Before this, Amy had sent me an SMS informing me she was going to Thailand to lodge a report with the Mongolian consulate there regarding Aminah’s disappearance. Apparently she had sent the same SMS to Abdul Razak Baginda. This is why he told me he had been advised to lodge a police report.
41. Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that DPS Musa Safri had introduced him to one DSP Idris, the head of the Criminal division, Brickfields police station, and that Idris had referred him to ASP Tonny.
42. When Abdul Razak Baginda had lodged his police report at Brickfields police station, in front of ASP Tonny, he was asked to make a statement but he refused as he said he was leaving for overseas. He did however promise to prepare a statement and hand ASP Tonny a thumb drive. I know that this was not done as ASP Tonny told me.
43. However ASP Tonny asked me the next day to provide my statement instead and so I did.
44. I stopped working for Abdul Razak Baginda on the 26.10.2006 as this was the day he left for Hong Kong on his own.
45. In mid November 2006, I received a phone call from ASP Tonny from the IPK Jalan Hang Tuah asking me to see him regarding Aminah’s case. When I arrived there I was immediately arrested under S.506 of the Penal Code for Criminal intimidation.
46. I was then placed in the lock up and remanded for 5 days. On the third day I was released on police bail.
47. At the end of November 2006, the D9 department of the IPK sent a detective to my house to escort me to the IPK Jalan Hang Tuah. When I arrived, I was told I was being arrested under S.302 of the Penal Code for murder. I was put in the lock up and remanded for 7 days.
48. I was transported to Bukit Aman where I was interrogated and questioned about an SMS I had received from Abdul Razak Baginda on the 19.10.2006 which read “delay her until my man arrives”. They had apparently retrieved this message from Abdul Razak Baginda’s handphone.
49. They then proceeded to record my statement from 8.30 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. everyday for 7 consecutive days. I told them all I knew including everything Abdul Razak Baginda and Aminah had told me about their relationships with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak but when I came to sign my statement, these details had been left out.
50. I have given evidence in the trial of Azilah, Sirul and Abdul Razak Baginda at the Shah Alam High Court. The prosecutor did not ask me any questions in respect of Aminah’s relationship with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak or of the phone call I received from DSP Musa Safri, whom I believe was the ADC for Datuk Seri Najib Razak and/or his wife.
51. On the day Abdul Razak Baginda was arrested, I was with him at his lawyers office at 6.30 a.m. Abdul Razak Baginda informed us that he had sent Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak an SMS the evening before as he refused to believe he was to be arrested, but had not received a response.
52. Shortly thereafter, at about 7.30 a.m., Abdul Razak Baginda received an SMS from Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and showed, this message to both myself and his lawyer. This message read as follows :- ” I am seeing IGP at 11.00 a.m. today …… matter will be solved … be cool”.
53. I have been made to understand that Abdul Razak Baginda was arrested the same morning at his office in the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang.
54. The purpose of this Statutory declaration is to :-
54.1 State my disappointment at the standard of investigations conducted by the authorities into the circumstances surrounding the murder of Altantuya Shaaribuu.
54.2 Bring to the notice of the relevant authorities the strong possibility that there are individuals other than the 3 accused who must have played a role in the murder of Altantuya Shaaribuu.
54.3 Persuade the relevant authorities to reopen their investigations into this case immediately so that any fresh evidence may be presented to the Court prior to submissions at the end of the prosecutions case.
54.4 Emphasize the fact that having been a member of the Royal Malaysian Police Force for 17 years I am absolutely certain no police officer would shoot someone in the head and blow up their body without receiving specific instructions from their superiors first.
54.5. Express my concern that should the defence not be called in the said murder trial, the accused, Azilah and Sirul will not have to swear on oath and testify as to the instructions they received and from whom they were given.
55. And I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing the same be true and by virtue of the provisions of the Statutory Declaration Act 1960.
