Who do we believe? The victims or the PI who was “paid” by the accused?
SHAH ALAM, June 25 (Bernama) — Namiraa Gerelmaa, the third witness in the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder trial, told the High Court here Monday that she, her cousin (Altantuya) and their friend Gal Ochir Uuriintuya had lodged a police report on Oct 19, 2006 because Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda threatened to kill them.
Namiraa, 23, who accompanied Altantuya to Malaysia to look for the political analyst, said the threatening message was related to them by Abdul Razak’s private investigator P. Balasubramaniam and his assistant K. Suras Kumar.
“Suras Kumar and Balasubramaniam threatened to kill us, to throw us out of the window. Every night, around 3am to 5am, Suras came to the hotel and forcefully knocked on the door to enter our room,” she said during the examination-in-chief by Deputy Public Prosecutor Manoj Kurup.
Today was Namiraa’s second day to be called to the witness stand. Namiraa, who spoke in Mongolian and translated into English by Mongolian interpreter Engkhjargal Tsetsgee, was the first called to the stand last Friday. (BERNAMA)
(SHAH ALAM, June 22) PRIVATE eye P. Balasubramaniam told a High Court here that Abdul Razak Baginda had never asked him to murder a Mongolian woman named Altantuya.
Testifying as the first prosecution witness, he also said the political analyst had never instructed him to hurt anyone before.
“I would have lodged a police report if anyone asked me to kill someone else,” he said.
To a suggestion by Wong Kian Kheong, counsel for Abdul Razak, Balasubramaniam said there was no necessity for the political analyst to lodge a police report against Altantuya for just being outside his office on Oct 9 last year. (The STAR)
