It is NOT!
So, it looks like we don’t need a motive to kill someone. Wow! What a great judgement. Only in Malaysia, I guess. What happens to the basic elements of crime – “the act does not make a person guilty unless the mind is also guilty?” . This is something I learnt in first year law studies. I did not continue to study law but I remembered this element. It is the basis for all crimes, and also to ensure just punishment.
So, if there is no motive in her killing, does it mean this is not murder? So, Altantuya must have died of natural death? Natural death caused by “blasted-related injuries”. A new one in medical science. Haha.
Hahaha, in Malaysia, semuanya terbalik (everything’s opposite). That’s Malaysia, truly Asia, for you:
