But first, did he lie? First he said he hadn’t met the victim of sodomy, then he said he met him at his house:
Najib admitted meeting Saiful Bukhari Azlan a few days before he (Saiful) lodged a police report against Anwar Ibrahim, accusing the PKR leader of sodomising him.
“He came to my house because he needed my help because he was so traumatised. That was it,” Najib told reporters in Parliament.
He added that there was no conspiracy involved in the police report as being claimed by Anwar. “I did not advise Saiful to lodge a police report”.
So why should I be investigated?
That’s what Najib Tun Razak said at a press conference this evening when he was asked about the explosive statutory declaration by P Balasubramaniam linking him to the murdered Altantuya at Anwar Ibrahim’s office yesterday.
Erm…if you were innocent, you’ll say: Come, come one and come all, investigate me!
Instead Najib retorted: Give me one reason why should I be investigated? God, there had been several reasons. But he chose to dismiss them all as “concocted claims” out to tarnish his reputation.
He used the same line as his supporters did “Why happen only now”?
Answer: Bala was never asked in court, was he? When a witness mentioned there was a photo of the three – Najib, Razak (Baginda) and Altantuya, both prosecution and defense jumped at the same time and tried to strike the statement out. We do not forget easily, Najib.
The Prosecution is wrapping up its case. Bala’s statement implicating Najib had been ommitted. What more reasons?
The “deputy prime minister” reiterated he “never,never met” Altantuya. And as if trying to convince himself, he said “I am relaxed…I am still smiling…truth will prevail…I believe in the system”.
Hah! Of course, if the system is in your favour?
Which proved my point when Najib added that the police had investigated the entire Altantuya case and they know everything. How do you know that, Najib? So brazen you are to make such a claim!
He further said he would leave it to the police to investigate the matter (familiar line, isn’t it?) but added that he had rights as a citizen (to do what?).
As a citizen, he is equal before the eyes of the law. Just as he is innocent till proven guilty, he should also be open to investigation. But dear God, can we trust the police, the ACA or the AG?
All of them have police reports lodged against them. An independent commission is indeed urgent now. And to all implicated – ambil cuti lah! (Take leave lah).
Anyway, there are also some cowards among us:
Abdullah Ahmad Badawi says he can’t comment on Bala’s SD because it’s “subjudice’.
Subjudice seem to have a different meaning for different cases.
On a SD by Saiful Bukhairy Azlan – where he claimed to have been sodomised by his boss, Anwar, and the latter denied the allegations, Abdullah said the accuser usually denies he was involved in a certain crime?
That’s exactly what Najib did.
