Najib Has Never Met Altantuya

Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak will not hesitate to seek legal redress over unfounded and unfair allegations made against him in the case involving murdered Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu.

In a letter sent to Malaysia Today website, the DPM’s press secretary Tengku Sariffuddin Tengku Ahmad said Najib did not know and had never met Altantuya, and that it was unfair that the allegations had been made against Najib in the case.

Tengku Sariffuddin was referring to an article titled “Let’s Send the Altantuya Murderers to Hell” published in Malaysia Today website on Friday, which was written by Raja Petra Kamarudin.

Tengku Sariffuddin said Najib shared the sentiment with the writer that the matter was not about politics and that this case should seek out the truth and justice should be served.

However, he said it was clear that there were those who were not interested in finding justice for Altantuya, but rather the politics connected to the case.

Tengku Sariffuddin said the article, which alleged that Najib and his wife, Rosmah Mansor were implicated in Altantuya’s murder, contained “hearsay”.

He said it gave the impression that the police investigations into the case and the legal proceedings were flawed and were designed to hide the real perpetrators.

The case, he added, was a private matter involving Razak and several policemen implicated in the case.

Tengku Sariffuddin also said the allegations that Altantuya’s murder was linked to the country’s purchase of submarines were baseless and unfounded.

“Datuk Seri Najib has been very restrained and guarded in making any public statement on the matter since people known to him have been implicated and have been charged in court.

“It (making statement about the matter) could be misinterpreted or seen to be interfering in the case since the court proceedings is still on-going,” he added.

i think there is a conspiracy to "kill" Najib off so that he will not succeed as Prime Minister.

All hearsay. Nothing but hearsay.

Altantuya was a prostitute and extortionist. I'm sorry she was killed that way. I am all for getting her killers as I would be for Nurin's killers!

I don;t know if the courts now are unfair and unjust. in that case, let's remove all the judges and the DPPs.

I think Najib has enough enemies out there. And they are using the Altantuya case to "kill" him off!

RPK, Susan Loone and the rest of them....they are all mercenaries..not out for justice but out to "kill" Najib off.
