Why is the case of the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu so sensitive that Aljazeera’s current affairs programme 101 East Asia journalist, Mary Ann Jolley had to be deported when she was doing an investigative piece on her brutal murder?
Is investigative report into Altantuya’s murder strictly out-of-bounds in Malaysia for any journalist, print or online, local or foreign?
In response to Aljazeera’s investigative piece “Murder in Malaysia” on Altantunya’s murder, which was aired today, the Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement reiterating that “The Prime Minister did not know, has never met, has never had any communication with and has no link whatsoever with the deceased”.
Since Najib had strongly and repeatedly denied knowing or having met Altantuya, his story should be able to stand up to any scrutiny, whether by Aljazeera’s investigative reporter or even by a Royal Commission of Inquiry into Altantuya’s murder, as many questions remain unanswered in her murder, the most serious of which was that the motive of the murder had not been found as the two persons convicted of the brutal murder of Altantuya, former police commandoes Sirul Azhir Umar and Azila Hadri, had not met or known her before the murder.
The Aljazeera programme has produced new evidence which may lead to the discovery of the motive for Altantuya’s gruesome murder and the person who is the mastermind for the Mongolian’s killing.
Will the police re-open investigations to delve into the real motive and the mastermind for Altantunya’s murder?
Will Najib, as Prime Minister, direct the Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar to re-open police investigations into Altantunya’s murder based on the new evidence reported in Aljazeera’s programme, focussing in particular on the motive and the mastermind of Altantuya’s murder ?
