On the morning that Abdul Razak Baginda was arrested in connection with the Altantuya murder, he received the following sms from Najib :
“I am seeing IGP at 11am today. matter will be solved. be cool.”
The fact of this sms was disclosed by private investigator Balasubramaniam in his first statutory declaration in July last year and has never been denied by either Razak Baginda or Najib.
Meanwhile, though, PI Bala has disappeared.
How did Najib intend to solve the matter?
Najib has never said anything until now.
On the morning of 16th November, 2006, when Razak Baginda was due to be charged in connection with the murder of Altantuya, Najib sent the following sms to lawyer Mohd Shafee Abdullah :
“Pls do not say anything to the press today. i will explain later. RB will have to face a tentative charge but all is not lost”
On 31st October, 2008, Razak Baginda, without being called to enter his defence, was acquitted of the charge, referred to by Dato Seri Najib as “tentative”, of abetting in the murder of Altantuya. At the time, lead prosecutor DPP Tun Majid Tun Hamzah intimated that the acquittal might be appealed, saying, “We will consider appealing the decision. The battle is not over yet”.
14 days later, the same DPP confirmed that the acquittal would not be appealed.
Is this what Najib meant by ‘tentative charge’? By ‘all is not lost’?
Najib has not said anything until now.
On 29th June, 2007, in the course of the Altantuya murder trial, Mongolian national, Burmaa Oyunchimeg, a prosecution witness, testified that she had seen a photograph of the victim, Razak Baginda and a government official. Newspaper reports give the impression that both the prosecution and some of the defence counsels went to great lengths to try and not allow this witness to continue with this line of testimony. However, when she was examined by Mr. Karpal Singh, who finally managed to get leave to ask the witness who the government official was, she replied, “Najib Razak. I remember the name Najib Razak because the name Razak is the same. I thought maybe they were brothers.”
Subsequently, when Najib was asked to comment on this evidence, he declined to do so, on the grounds that it would be inappropriate for him to comment further as any statement he made might be deemed to be on a matter sub-judice, given that the trial was still ongoing.
To this date, Najib has never categorically denied this piece of evidence and no effort has been made by the relevant authorities to investigate this piece of information.
This man now hopes to run our country from as early as 1st April, 2009.
If indeed he does ascend to the office of PM, and proceeds to run our country with an iron fist such like we’ve never seen before, continues to divide the people so that he and his cronies can continue to plunder the nation’s wealth and silence legitimate dissent by despatching the voices of the people to Kamunting, and your children should some day ask you if there was nothing you could do to prevent all this, how will you reply?
I know I will look mine in the eyes and, with a clear conscience, say, ‘I tried’.
Can you do the same?
Well and good if Pak Lah refuses to step down and make way for Najib.
What, though, if Pak Lah does step down once Najib is confirmed as the president of UMNO Baru?
People expect that Najib will make a bee line to the King’s palace on 1st April, 2009 or soonest possible after Pak Lah has stepped down as PM, with a view to inform His Majesty that he commands the confidence of the majority of the members of the Dewan Rakyat and, consequently, he be made PM.
If like me, you do not wish to see Najib as PM of this country, you’ve got under a month to come up with something to stop him.
If you can’t think of anything, why not sign this PETITION.
It beats doing nothing.
