The trial today of the two policemen charged with the murder of Altantuya Sharibuu confirms what Malaysians have heard and known all along:
Azilah, 32, who is taking the witness stand for the first time, told Shah Alam High Court that the Deputy Prime Minister’s aide-de-camp Musa Safri had given Abdul Razak’s handphone number to him to help resolve the political analyst’s problem.
“It was on Oct 17, 2006, while in Pekan, Pahang while accompanying the Deputy Prime Minister, Musa approached me and asked me whether I knew anyone from the Brickfields district police station.
“I told him I knew Deputy Superintendent Idris Abdul Karim who is the head of criminal investigations of the Brickfields station, whom I know since my days as an investigating officer in Sepang police.
“Musa told me that his friend Abdul Razak needed help as he had been threatened by someone. Musa gave me Abdul Razak’s cell number for me to contact,” said the Special Action Squad officer.
