On December 13, this blog reported a contact with Mongolian writer Undurya Tumursukh, who revealed that:
“Mr. Steve Shaariibuu, the Honorary Consul and some other related people found out that Altantuya and her companions’ entry records were erased when Mr. Shaariibuu was returning with the remaining Mongolian woman. The Malaysian immigration refused to let the young woman through the control because they claimed she had entered illegally as her records are not in the computer. Upon examination, it was reveled that the records of entry of Altantuya and her companions had been erased. It is suspected that the killers of Altantuya were planning to do away with her companions as well so as not to leave any witnesses”.
But at that time, no one paid heed to this expose. Some preferred to ridicule my reports.
Today, the Mongolian witness told the Shah Alam High Court that her immigration entry records into Malaysia had been deleted and she was held at the airport for two hours by immigration officers before she could leave the country.
In a Malaysiakini report on the seventh day of the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder trial, Uuriintuya Gal Ochir, 30, was continuing her testimony before judge Mohd Zaki Yasin who had asked her when she had returned to Mongolia.
Uuriintuya had previously testified that she and a friend, Namiraa Gerelmaa, had accompanied Altantuya to Malaysia on Oct 8 last year.
Uuriintuya told the packed courtroom that while Namiraa had left for Mongolia first on Oct 24, she couldn’t do the same as her passport was with Altantuya on the night the latter went missing.
“On Nov 24, I left with Altantuya’s father Shaariibuu (Setev) but at the airport we had a problem because they (immigration officials) did not have a record of Altantuya, Namiraa or me entering the country. They said they had no data of our records. The entry was deleted in the computer.
“I was still holding my air ticket so they asked me how I came into the country […] was it by sea or by car. So I showed them my ticket that had the date of when I flew into Malaysia.”
Really, what can one make out of this?
