Did ASIA SENTINEL know something that we don’t?
Today, on the 9th day of the Altantuya’s murder trial, we hear that our DPM Najib Abdul Razak was seen with Altantuya.
Is this also related to a certain expose in KL Pos?
Didn’t Najib say, during the Ijok by-election in April, that he was not in any way related to the Mongolian woman?
Read the report that says that he was probably seen with the woman (inside). And notice how the witness was “cut short” by the prosecution as she said this and quizzed on other matters. Doesn’t this raise our suspicions a little bit higher?
A Mongolian witness caused a stir in court today when she revealed that murdered Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu had been photographed having a meal with a Malaysian government official named Najib Razak.
Burmaa Oyunchimeg (left), also known as Amy, told the Shah Alam High Court that Altantuya had shown her the photo when she returned from a trip to France.
It is believed that the government official in the photograph is Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who has close ties with political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda.
The latter has been charged with abetting the murder of Altantuya, 28.
This morning, Burmaa, 26, had mentioned the photograph when cross examined by deputy public prosecutor Manoj Kurup.
However, she was cut short by the prosecution when she said the photograph showed Altantuya having a meal with Razak and a “government official.” She was then quizzed on other matters.
About 20 minutes later, lawyer Karpal Singh, who is holding a watching brief for the deceased’s family, sought permission from the court to pose a question on the photograph.
‘They had the same name’
This drew protests from the prosecution and a verbal exchange ensued on the relevance of the question. However, judge Mohd Zaki Mohd Yusni granted Karpal permission.
The veteran lawyer then proceeded to ask Burmaa on what was depicted in the photograph.
“She (Altantuya) was having a meal with Razak (Baginda), a Malaysian government official and other people,” she replied.
Karpal then asked her on the identity of the government official, and she replied: “I remember the name Najib Razak, they had the same name. I thought they were brothers. I asked her (Altantuya) if they were brothers.”
This sparked off another exchange between the prosecution and Karpal.
