Pray for justice for Altantuya

I feel somewhat relieved when I was informed that the charges against Razak Baginda was not dropped as predicted by some quarters before the trial begins today. We Malaysians were shamed by the murder of Altantuya Shariibuu and we need to restore our name by following through a professional and fair trial in order to bring the real killer (s) and murderer (s) to justice.Yes, the whole world is watching. And justice must not only be done but seen to be done. Let’s pray for justice for Altantuya.

Abdul Razak sought lover’s death: DPP

Jun 18, 07 3:19pm Malaysiakini 
Political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda ordered the killing of his former Mongolian lover, a prosecutor said in his opening statements at a politically charged murder trial today.

Abdul Razak, 47, is charged with abetting the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu, 28, in a slaying that stunned Malaysia.

Lead prosecutor Tun Majid Tun Hamzah told the High Court that Abdul Razak abetted two accused police officers “in planning and giving instructions so that the deceased is killed.”

Tun Majid said the policemen, Azilah Hadri, 30, and Sirul Azhar Umar, 35, “carried out the killing,” and told the court a confession from Sirul would be among the evidence presented.

He said Altantuya had written a note to Abdul Razak (photo) in which she threatened his child if he refused to help her financially.

Prosecutors also intend to prove that a car owned by Azilah was used to take Altantuya to the murder scene in Shah Alam district southwest of the capital Kuala Lumpur, Tun Majid said.

“The prosecution will prove the cause of death was ‘probable blast-related injuries’ as is proven in a medical report by pathologists,” he said.

A pair of blood-stained slippers were found in a car belonging to Sirul, and DNA testing confirmed the blood was from Altantuya, he said.

A pathologists’ report will prove “the cause of death was ‘probable blast-related injuries’,” he added.

In an eight-page statement opening the trial, Tun Majid said Abdul Razak and Altantuya met in 2004 and had a relationship, during which he gave her money.

After they broke up in 2005, he continued to give her money whenever she demanded, until last year, the prosecution alleged.

Tun Majid said she was dissatisfied and hired a private investigator to find his home. He said she came to Malaysia herself last October, and left notes demanding cash and asking to meet him.

All three accused face the death penalty if convicted.

Abdul Razak has vehemently denied any involvement in the case.

Witness: ‘Aminah’ visited Razak

The private investigator hired by Abdul Razak Baginda said a Mongolian national named Aminah visited the political analyst at his office on Oct 9 last year. V Bala Subramaniam, 47, said this in the Shah Alam High Court as the trial of three people accused in the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu began today before judge Mohd Zaki Md Yasin.Bala said three Mongolians had attempted to see Razak, 47, at his Malaysian Strategic Research Centre (MSRC) office on the 10th floor of Bangunan Getah Asli in Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.

“I received a call from Razak that (they) were at his office and he told me go over as soon as possible. I was in my house at that time, so I sent my assistant (K Suras Kumar),” he said.

“When I got there, the secretary said the three had left so the two of us followed them. Suras went to speak to them outside the lobby and asked for a lighter. I stayed near the stairs to observe them.”

He said he knew that one of them was the person about whom Razak had spoken to him.

“When I saw them, I was sure that all three were Mongolian but I wasn’t sure which one was the one threatening Razak,” he explained.

Bala, formerly a Special Branch officer, said he rang the police and two officers – Zul Husnee Isa and V Pallaniandy – showed up and that he asked the latter for information on the trio.

“Pallaniandy told me that one of them was named Aminah and that she had said her husband was the executive director of this building.”

(At the time, Razak was the executive director of strategic think tank, MSRC.)

Bala also noted that the three travelled in a Honda Accord driven by a man who looked Chinese.

The Mongolians lingered on the ground floor of the building after the police left, so Bala phoned Razak to tell him to leave the building by the back entrance.

“I later called Razak again to tell him that the three had left. Suras and I left after that,” he said.

‘Threatening phone calls’

Earlier, deputy public prosecutor Tun Majid Tun Hamzah asked Bala specifically why he had been hired after the court heard that he had met Razak for over an hour at his office to discuss his task.

“Razak hired me to keep this Mongolian woman, who had been threatening him, away from him. My job was to stop her from meeting Razak. He told me she had been threatening him for money,” he told the packed courtroom.

Bala said he was paid RM4,000 for his services which were to end when the Mongolian returned home. He said he has been a private investigator for nine years.

However, he said Razak had told him that he was receiving threats from a policeman who spoke with a Chinese accent.

“I told him to make a police report but he said he would consult his family lawyer first before deciding (on this),” he said.

He also said Razak told him that he had a recording of a phone conversation with the policeman.

However Bala said he could not remember the details of the threat as this was not part of the task that he was paid to do.

Razak, is charged with abetting the murder of Altantuya, 28, between 10pm on Oct 19 and 1am on Oct 20 last year. Her body was blown up in a jungle clearing in Shah Alam, Selangor.

Two police officers, Azilah Hadri, 30, and Sirul Azhar Umar, 35, are charged with the murder. They are members of a special unit that guards top Malaysian leaders, including the prime minister and his deputy.

All three accused face the death penalty if convicted.

The high profile trial is expected to run for a month and to hear testimony from 30 to 40 prosecution witnesses.

The hearing continues tomorrow.

【本刊潘宏文撰述】“炸尸案”主控官阿都马吉Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah)告诉高等法院,控方有证据证明,政治分析家阿都拉萨巴金德(Abdul Razak Baginda)及两名警务人员合谋策划在去年1019日炸死蒙古藉女子阿尔丹杜雅。

“炸尸案”今天下午在雪兰莪州莎亚南高等法院审讯,主控官阿都马吉(右图)做开庭陈词时说,控方将凭证人的证词、闭路电视影片及电话通联记录证明,阿尔丹杜雅当晚被带离阿都拉萨巴金德的住家后发生了什么事。

炸尸案死者是28岁的阿尔丹杜雅(Altantuya Shaaribuu),副首相兼国防部长纳吉的保镖――首席警长阿兹拉哈德里及警员西鲁阿兹哈乌玛――被控在去年1019日晚上及1020日在雪兰莪武吉拉惹(Mukim Bukit Raja)的森林地带谋杀蒙古籍女子阿尔丹杜雅莎莉布,而纳吉的幕僚、马来西亚策略研究中心(Malaysian Strategic Research Centre执行董事阿都拉萨巴金德则被控在去年1018日上午945分至115分之间,在吉隆坡安邦路Bangunan Getah Asli十楼,教唆阿兹拉哈德里西鲁阿兹哈乌玛谋杀阿尔丹杜雅杜雅莎莉布

阿都马吉也说,控方将举证证明,首被告阿兹拉哈德里是亲自指出炸尸地点,而第二被告西鲁阿兹哈乌玛则是最后一个被人见到和死者在一起的人。控方将证明,阿兹拉和西鲁将死者带到案发现场,并用爆炸物将她炸死。

次被告车里搜获染血迹拖鞋

他透露,警方从西鲁阿兹哈那里搜到一些属于死者的物件;控方会证明,证人及脱氧核糖核酸(DNA)测试证实那些物件属于死者所有。

阿都马吉也说警方也在次被告西鲁阿兹哈的车里搜获一双沾有血迹的拖鞋;化学部的脱氧核糖核酸分析证实,拖鞋上的血迹是死者阿尔丹杜雅(左图)的血迹。

“证据将显示,死因是病理学家报告所说的‘可能和爆炸有关的伤害’造成。”

控方也将证明,死者曾在去年1019日晚上告诉她的朋友,如果她在二至三小时后没有回到酒店,她们就得去报警。

阿都马吉说,死者失踪前八小时,曾向警方报案说遭到威胁。

“炸尸案”今天上午开庭时,死者家属的旁听律师卡巴星以法官和第一被告的辩护律师有亲戚关系的理由,向法院申请承审法官退出审理此案;虽然控方及第二被告的辩护律师都不反对,但承审法官莫哈末查基(Mohd Zaki Md Yassin)驳回了卡巴星的申请。【点击:卡巴星申请换法官不果炸尸案今午传第一证人】

One Response to “Pray for justice for Altantuya”

    为何还以拉萨为荣

    杨白杨简介及他所写过的专栏

    杨白杨电邮: yangbaiyang@gmail.com
    蒙古女郎阿旦杜亚被炸尸案经过一波三折,终于在今天得以开审。这案件的轰动性不下于当年前副首相安华被控鸡奸和滥权罪。在安华之前,我们的法庭也审讯过文化部长枪杀政敌的案件,几个轰动国际的大案件加加起来,马来西亚也可算是一个专门出产大案件的国家,因此扬名国际,国人都以此为荣。

    在这些轰动全世界的大案件的审讯过程中,都会有一些吸引世人眼光的花边新闻。安华案件审讯过程的大花边,就是一张据说沾有男欢女爱的遗迹的大床祷,被当作证物,抬进抬出法庭不知多少次,体现了我国法庭的司法公正,突出了办案者和审讯者追求真相的执着和不怕麻烦的精神,这些花边,都让有关方面引以为荣。

    马亚西亚人是个乐观慷慨的民族,家人有什么大事,不管好事坏事,即使是花边新闻,都能够引以为荣。蒙古女郎炸尸案今天开审,被告阿都拉萨巴金达的家属在法庭出现时,穿着方面就抢了风头,他们个个套上T恤,前面写着他们和阿都拉巴金达的关系,背后则写着“我以此为荣!” 比方他的老婆大人玛兹琳达,前面写着“拉萨巴金达太太”(Mrs.Razak Baginda),背后就来一句“我以此为荣”(And Proud of it !)

    世人以为阿都拉萨巴金达在外间搞上蒙古女郎,解不断,情还乱,最后涉嫌买凶用炸药把情妇炸到粉身碎骨,轰动国际,作为他的太太,她一定会对丈夫的乱情和暴行怨恨在心,可是她不但没有半丝恨意,还公开展示她对拉萨的爱情,以身为拉萨的太太而为荣。阿都拉萨的女儿、兄弟和姐妹等亲戚,就更不必说了,他们都以阿都拉萨为荣。这种宣传,让人民产生极大的迷惑。

    在亲属的内心中,阿都拉萨如果真的唆使两个警方人员谋杀阿旦杜亚,那么他被判死刑,不过是罪有应得,没有人会以他而为荣。他们站出来展示他们以阿都拉萨而为荣,只有两个可能性,一是内心明知阿都拉萨有错,却埋没良知,替阿都拉萨开脱,制造“我们全家人都知道阿都拉萨是好人”的假象,以欺骗社会大众,甚至企图影响法庭对阿都拉萨的印象。这种做法太坏了。

    另一个可能性是他们打从内心相信他们的亲人阿都拉萨不会干出这种伤天害理的事情来,所以全家出动为阿都拉萨申冤。但是, 如果不是阿都拉萨唆使那两位警务人员炸死阿旦杜亚,那么是谁干的好事呢?这就是为什么国人看到了阿都拉萨巴金达的家属的T恤的特出字眼后,议论纷纷的原因。一条T恤,于是成为炸尸案的第一个花边新闻。

    这花边有茶余饭后的价值。阿都拉萨的家属是不是真的以阿都拉萨为荣,成为案情真假的线索。他们如果是埋没良知袒护一个凶残的杀人犯,这条T恤就太恶心了;他们如果是打从内心以阿都拉萨为荣,问题就更大了。

    案情都已摆成是一个男人和一个女人的情色事件的演变,如果不是这样,如果拉萨有值得他的家属引以为荣之处,恐怕是案中有案,而且是更大的案了。一条T恤的文字,可以让国人有两种不同的想像。
