So, everyone has been talking about Raja Petra Kamaruddin's statutory declaration in which he named the wife of the Deputy Prime Minister as one of the three people present at the scene where Mongolian woman, Altantuya Shaaribu, was murdered in 2006.
Today, DPM Najib Abdul Razak responded to the claims in the SD.
He dismissed the contents in the SD as “lies” and welcomed police investigations into the allegation.
Najib said RPK's claim was a “fabrication and total garbage’.
He believed Raja Petra’s allegation was a “desperate and pathetic attempt to discredit and taint my political image”.
“I can’t see any other reasons,” he told reporters after chairing the special cabinet committee meeting on illegal immigrants in Sabah.
Najib said the police would record statements from those concerned including Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
He said Rosmah has already given her statement.
Abdullah said he did not receive any report of the murder from the military intelligence as claimed by Raja Petra in the SD. H E R E.
