It beats logic but it is true. Reliable sources say that the two murder accused of Altantuya Shariibuu was very calm today when they were sentenced to death in the Shah Alam court house.
They were police special force action unit personnel. They take orders from ‘someone up there’.
This morning Azilah [Hadri] came in first to court and was very calm, seen cheerful and smiling, looked fine. Sirul came in much later, and many thought he had broke down, but this is not to be so. He also came in looking calm.
[Perhaps, I watched too many movies. But people either faint or shriek or show some kind of emotion when sentenced to death].
Even when the sentenced was read by the judge. The emotions were calm. After it was read, the two convicts left the dock and hug their lawyers.
Azilah’s fiancee who was present in court was also very calm. She told reporters later that she expected Azilah to be freed, but since the judge had made his decision, they would wait for the ‘next’ step.
She still plans to marry Azilah. It seems the only person found shedding a tear, quite strangely, was Azilah’s fiancee’s sister.
Anyway, the duo will be in the Kajang prison, and not Sungai Buloh, awaiting their appeal.
It’s worthwhile to read Lim Kit Siang’s statement today : Demands intensify for allegations of Najib’s involvement in the Altantuya c4 murder case.
