In the Altantuya Shariibuu case, the Attorney General gets away scott free AGAIN. There is indeed too much power in one man’s hands.
Altantuya’s dad, Stev filed for a judicial review to compel the AG to appeal against the acquittal of Abdul Razak Baginda.
But he has withdrawn the case today (Malaysiakini). Too tedious and too costly for an old man who has two grandchildren to feed, and too heavy a burden to carry the memory of his daughter blown to bits on Malaysian soil.
Imagine, having the sole discretion whether to prosecute or not or file an appeal or not. That’s how powerful the AG is in this country.
With this kind of system, no one is guaranteed justice. For the AG is just human, and human beings are frail, many are corrupt.
However, I totally agree that the government must pay for the price of this murder as the two policemen convicted of the crime were government servants at the time of Altantuya’s death.
1MALAYSIA must take some responsibility for this.
I see PM Najib Razak and his lovely Dotty embracing and encircling kids every other day – one charity after another – in the MSM of course.
Will the couple spare a thought for Altantuya’s special child?
