THANKS to Elizabeth Wong for the “present”.
This is the case it seems. Or, are they waiting for the trial to be over?
Berita Harian (on Aug 18) reported that the government has ‘thrown back’ Altantuya family’s RM100 million summons against the two accused in her murder – Azilah Hadri dan Sirul Azhar Umar. The documents were returned lawyer Karpal Singh’s office without any reason given. The summons was issued on Aug 2. So, Karpal issued the summons directly to the two policemen in their personal capacity, on Thursday.
Karpal said he did not understand why the summons was returned as the two accused were still police officers, and the summons was made with regards to their mandate as police officers.
He added there was no problem (yet) with the summons issued to the other accused Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda and the government of Malaysia (on Aug 3), as he has received word that lawyer Wong Kian Kheong would be representing him in this case as well.
Karpal Singh is representing Altantuya’s father, Shaariibuu Setev, 56; her mum, Altantsetseg Sanjaa, 56, and her kids Mungunshagai Bayarjargal, 9, and Altanshagai ,Munkhtulga, 4, who want to be compensated, claiming that Altantuya’s death between 19 and 20 October last year was caused by Azilah and Sirul Azha.
