Killer Exposed The PM’s Executive Order
To Kill Mongolian Beauty Altantuya...
There are many ways to skin a cat, especially a fat cat like former Prime Minister Najib Razak. Already hit with 42 charges of criminal breach of trust (CBT), money laundering and abuse of power – a world record for a former prime minister – he was also slapped with a tax bill for an extra RM1.5 billion of undeclared taxable income of close to RM4 billion between 2011 and 2017.
While the trial of his 1MDB scandal is ongoing, the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) is still trying to recover the RM1.5 billion in unpaid taxes, including the RM2.6 billion (US$681 million) “donation” that the former premier has claimed was a donation received from Saudi Arabia royal family, a claim that could not be fully and officially substantiated.
But stealing money and tax evasion was considered child’s play in a country like Malaysia, where corruption and money laundering were common practices of the day. Mr. Najib went beyond just plundering national coffers. The despicable man, who lost his power in the May 2018 General Election, was also involved in the gruesome murder of Mongolian beauty Altantuya Shaariibuu.
In what appears to be another feather in Najib’s cap, one of two ex-police commandos convicted of Altantuya’s murder, has issued a shocking “Statutory Declaration (SD)” dated October 17, 2019 – admitting that it was Najib Razak, who gave him the “shoot to kill” order verbally to terminate the Mongolian mother of two during a meeting on October 17, 2006.
According to Malaysiakini portal, the SD made by the convicted killer Azilah Hadri says he was merely following an explicit “shoot to kill” order as a member of the elite special action force (UTK) of the police. The ex-commando also exposed that Najib told him to destroy the Altantuya’s body and dispose of the evidence as she was a “foreign spy” and posed a threat to Malaysia’s security.
Azilah said in his SD – “I asked the DPM (Deputy Prime Minister Najib) what was meant by arrest and destroy the foreign spy and DPM responded ‘shoot to kill’ while showing the sign of slitting the throat. When asked what was meant by destroying the foreign spy’s body, DPM replied ’Destroy the foreign spy’s body to get rid of traces.’”
Altantuya-Shaariibuu - Murder Site - Military Grade Explosive
“After discussing methods to destroy the body, DPM ordered me to blow up the foreign spy’s body using explosives,” – said Azilah. When the police commando told Najib, who was then the Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister, that a police report had to be made on the matter, Najib disagreed and argued that the matter could not be made public as it involved a threat to the national security.
Najib apparently told Azilah that the foreign spy was a very dangerous woman due to many national secrets she knew. Najib had also lied to the elite police commando that Altantuya was so cunning that she would claim to be pregnant, hence she cannot be trusted. The deputy premier gave the instruction to destroy of the spy’s body with explosives, presumably military-grade C4.
Azilah was briefed by Najib – “The foreign spy could not approach the DPM (Najib) due to the tight security and therefore the spy threatened the DPM’s special officer instead.” That special officer referred to was Abdul Razak Baginda, a former political analyst and close associate of Najib Razak. Baginda, Altantuya’s former lover, was charged in 2006 but unexpectedly acquitted in 2008 of the murder.
The murder scandal started in June 2002 when the Malaysian government signed a €1 billion (US$961 million; RM3.4 billion) contract with Armaris (now DCNS) and Spanish naval shipbuilder Izar (now Navantia) for 2 SSK Scorpenes submarines. Soon after the delivery, embarrassingly, one of the French submarines could not dive. However, the real scandal had just begun.
The dramatic kidnap and murder of Altantuya soon revealed how the model and translator was linked to €114 million (RM500 million) in “commission” for the purchase of the Scorpenes sub. The motive for Altantuya’s death – she wished to claim US$500,000 being her share of the kickbacks for the submarines deal. Razak Baginda, however, had refused to be blackmailed – leading to the murder.
As expected, Najib today rubbished the claims by Azilah, describing him as a desperate man trying to escape the gallows. He argued – “Why did this information not come out earlier, and only now, more than a decade after her death?” Seriously, if that’s the best Najib could do, he’s screwed. The simple answer – Najib can only be exposed now because he’s powerless after losing the 2018 general election.
Azilah and Najib Razak
In the same breath, the defeat of Najib regime last year also opened the possibility of the return of another ex-police commando – Sirul Azhar Umar – who is currently being held in the Villawood detention centre in Sydney ever since the convicted killer was arrested in Queensland for overstaying his tourist visa. His ability to escape to Australia is still a mystery until today.
Australia had refused to send Sirul (a former bodyguard of Najib) back to Malaysia because the country’s extradition legislation does not allow a person to be surrendered to another country for an offence punishable by death, unless the country (in this case Malaysia) has given Australia an undertaking that the death penalty will not be carried out.
Back in 2015, when Al-Jazeera unleashed a damaging documentary – “Murder in Malaysia” – the journalist, Mary Ann Jolley, was deported by 5 Malaysian immigration officers and a man in military outfit, clearly under the instruction of Najib administration. Amazingly, the same journalist would personally grill Najib in Oct 2018 until the crook ran away from an interview arranged by himself.
The Australian-based journalist revealed on the Al-Jazeera weekly that besides two convicted killers from the elite protection squad, namely Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, there was a third person at the murder scene. That man was none other than Altantuya’s ex-lover Razak Baginda, a close aid or rather a proxy of ex-PM Najib Razak.
According to court testimony, Ms. Shaariibuu begged for her life and that of her unborn child, but she was shot twice in the head anyway, wrapped in C4 military-grade plastic explosives and blown up in Kuala Lumpur’s suburbs on October 19, 2006. And according to Sirul, it was the scumbag Razak Baginda who pulled the trigger and shot the Mongolian.
The question which still begs an answer is – why would Azilah Hadri and Sirul Azhar (both formerly with the police’s Special Action Unit, UTK) abducted the pregnant Altantuya in front of Baginda’s Kuala Lumpur home and taken to a forest in Subang, Shah Alam, where she was shot twice and her body was blown up, despite the fact that both commandos never knew the Mongolian woman?
Altantuya Murder Scandal
Al-Jazeera also revealed how ex-PM Najib informed his buddy Baginda that he had a sexual relationship with Altantuya (also known as Aminah). And it was Najib Razak, who had introduced Altantuya to Razak Baginda at a diamond exhibition in Singapore. Hence, it is fair to assume that after Najib got tired of Altantuya, he passed her to Baginda like a sex toy, after which both became lovers.
In fact, private investigator and witness Balasubramaniam’s Statutory Declaration did mention about Najib informing Baginda that Altantuya was susceptible to anal intercourse, suggesting that the prime minister had lied when he said he didn’t know her. And how did Najib know about the anal sex thingy, unless he had experienced it with Altantuya prior, right?
Al-Jazeera also exposed how Balasubramaniam was threatened by military intelligence into retracting his first statutory declaration which implicated Najib Razak, in exchange for RM5 million and temporarily “disappear” out of the country, until the then-Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak officially becomes the 6th Prime Minister of Malaysia on 3 April 2009.
Sirul and Azilah were charged with the murder and sentenced to death in 2009 but Sirul has denied carrying out the killing, saying that he was acting on orders from his superiors and was only involved in driving Altantuya to the scene. Now, it’s Azilah turn – exposing that he received the “kill and destroy” order from Najib Razak.
No motive for the killing was ever established and key witnesses were never called during the trial. The prosecution during Najib regime deliberately failed to call a material witness – DSP Musa Safri – a former aide de camp of Najib. Interestingly, in the latest statutory declaration, Azilah acknowledges the roles played by Abdul Razak Baginda and Musa Safri in the gruesome murder of Altantuya.
Najib Razak, Razak Baginda and Musa Safri
Musa Safri, a military officer acting as a confidential assistant to then Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak, would only carry instruction on behalf of his boss. Not even Razak Baginda could instruct Mr. Musa to do a task. Therefore, Azilah’s revelation provides the missing piece – who was the ultimate person who issued the order to kill Altantuya and destroy her body beyond recognition.
That explains why Musa Safri was never called in the trial as a material witness. To do so would mean Musa would reveal that the instructions came from none other than Najib Razak himself. It would be absolutely interesting to see if Musa Safri would be the next person to testify against Najib Razak. Unlike money laundering, being accused of murder is a different ball game altogether.
More importantly, will the Mahathir administration continue to grant Najib the special privilege of walking a free man, despite the latest statutory declaration that the former crook was also a murderer? Sure, pro-Najib cybertroopers, propagandists and bloggers will definitely scream their lungs out that Azilah and the government are fabricating things to nail Najib.
Still, the fact remains that both the ex-police commandos had absolutely zero motive to kill and explode the body of a pregnant woman they didn’t know, but both Najib Razak and Razak Baginda have every reason to exterminate the Mongolian beauty. But Najib had sworn in a mosque that he did not know Altantuya and has nothing to do with her murder.
Interestingly, 10 years after Najib sworn in the mosque, his Barisan Nasional ruling government lost power for the first time in 61 years since the country’s independence in 1957. Perhaps his penchant for telling lies, even in the holy mosque, was the reason he lost power last year, which in turn allows Azilah the opportunity to expose him as the despicable murderer.
Mr. Najib and his supporters have nothing to worry if Azilah’s SD was nothing but lies and fabrications. He can always hire his hotshot lawyer Shafee Abdullah to quash the allegations and charges. Mr. Azilah is only seeking a retrial in an open court to provide full evidence of the 2006 murder. But it appears more skeletons in the closet are about to be revealed. Najib’s worst nightmare has just begun. - FT
Specifically, the Appeal Court noted, there had been zero attempt to identify a motive as to why these two employees of the defence minister would shoot dead a stranger to themselves. The person who actually had a glaring big motive was their boss, then Deputy PM and Defence Minister, Najib Razak.
Najib and his ‘procurements advisor’ Razak Baginda had been publicly berated daily in the street by a woman who was complaining they had made her pregnant and who claimed to have evidence of their damning involvement in stealing hundreds of millions of ringgit out of a French submarine contract (subsequently proven to be true).
Now that’s a motive.
If Altantuya and her friends had not got evidence on Najib and Baginda, the irate minister and his side-kick could easily have called the police and immigration services to have her sorted out for all this hoo hah shouting outside Baginda’s house. This is what Najib’s bodyguard Azilah originally advised Najib that he should do, according to today’s eplosive statutory declaration (below in full).
However, Altantuya and her friends had made clear they were not going quietly. They had already blurted the whole story out to one PI Bala, hired by Baginda to try and deal with the tiresome group of chanting women, so little doubt what they would have said down at the station when their interviews were recorded on arrest. What Altantuya had told Bala was that she was pregnant with Najib’s child and had helped him negotiate a massive theft of public funds through the bent Scorpene deal.
So, instead of Baginda calling the police Najib called in his own bodyguards, confirms Azliah Hadri, currently on death row. It was they who were sent to Baginda’s house to ‘get rid of’ Altantuya via the bodyguard method of disposal (having picked up guns and weapons grade explosive available only to Najib’s own ministry of defence).
At which point lawyer Shafee Abdullah leapt into action for his boss and a trial was put into play in which half the relevant witnesses were not called and the prosecution and the defence were singing from the same tune. Najib was not even called as a witness, let alone a suspect and Baginda was acquitted – but not before his wife revealingly blurted out hysterically in court that it was not her husband who needed to be protected because he wanted to be prime minister.
Everyone in Malaysia could see what was going on and why the two convicted, motiveless bodyguards (forced to wear hoods in court) who did not even know their victim cried out they were “scapegoats” at the end of the trial.
Suspicions were confirmed when PI Bala went public complaining he had not been given a chance in court to give his evidence and provided a detailed statutory declaration spelling out all he had learned from Altantuya and Baginda about her affairs with the two men and her demands for money to keep quiet about the submarines.
Naturally, Bala he was then whisked away having been forced to retract within hours. After he returned a few years later to confirm his story in KL he mysteriously soon died following a hospital checkup on his heart condition.
The world thought all this was fishy, more importantly the Appeal Court had also thought it was fishy. So fishy that the court released the two men shortly after hearing the case following the 2013 election. Cynics might have suspected this was the plan all along – to let these carefully unidentified chaps free once Najib securely in office as an elected PM.
If so, the Federal Court was unamused. The men killed the woman after all – whether or not their motive was merely an inducement of a bit of cash and whether or not someone who ordered it was equally if not more guilty of the crime. In a move that could only happen in Malaysia the acquitted men were de-acquitted and hauled back behind bars to face a death sentence.
That certainly suited Najib were he, as Azilah has now testified, the man who ordered the hit. Behind bars and totally dependent on his threats and blandishments was where he held most control over these potentially loose cannons. After all, remeber Sirul’s early attempts to blackmail him after escaping to Australia and his statements to the media that he could ‘bring down a prime minister’ if he decided to tell all he knew?
The Federal Court ruling made sure these dangerous witnesses were locked up with a death sentence hanging over them. Was future wealth and freedom held out as the distant and tantalising reward for continuing silence as certain evidence suggests?
Till now such conclusions have been speculative, failing proper investigations and a proper trial. Now, however the country’s inevitable suspicions about the Altanuya case have been backed up however by compelling testimony from the man who pulled the trigger confirming that it was his powerful boss, the man with the motive, who told him to do it.
Azilah will place a motion to the Federal Court asking for a review of his case and a re-trial. The Attorney General who will repond is no longer an appointee of Najib Razak. If that trial is granted in the light of the new evidence there will be a new suspect in this murder case, the former prime minister.
Meanwhile, the two bodyguards will have a new defence they did not put forward earlier (owing to the power of their boss who had allegedly told them to keep quiet and wait for him to save them) which is that they were ordered by the Defence Minister to shoot a spy who was a danger to their country.
Baginda would be arraigned as an accomplice to the crime and key witness and a whole raft of new witnesses would be called or be recalled to receive a proper grilling. These would include the chief bodyguard Musa Safri; the friends of Altantuya who reported her missing; Azilah’s girlfriend who assisted in the arrest (also Rosmah’s bodyguard); several police officers; lawyers and judges who were removed and replaced in the course of the case; Rosmah; several staff and acquiantances of Rosmah and Najib who observed evidence of a row at the house over what to do with Altantuya and then evidence of what had happened following her disappearance and also Deepak Jaikashan, a close confidant of the couple at the time who has admitted his involvement in the cover-up on behalf of Najib and Rosmah by getting PI Bala out of the country using threats and bribes.
Jail Not Bail
If there is a trial in prospect to match the stunning impact of 1MDB in Malaysia this would be it. Except, with a crucial difference. As a supect for murder Najib Razak will not be bailed for just a few million ringgit. He will not be allowed to retain his political seat and swan into parliament with outrider escorts wearing fine suits nor tour by-elections calling himself ‘Bossku’. Najib will be placed behind bars and will travel to court each day in a prison van.
Meanwhile, the Altantuya case is not the only murder event in Malaysia where victims have complained that a similar botched investigation and ensuing trial also combined with the element of a motive on the part of Malaysia’s past power couple. Altantuya’s may just be the first skeleton to tumble out of a crowded closet.
Pascal Najadi, son of the former AmBank founder Hussein Najadi, has powerfully argued that one unexplored possible motive behind own his father’s murder (shot dead in the street) was the fact that his father had started taking his concerns to the very top in Malaysia about the use of the bank he had founded to launder billions through Najib’s accounts.
Once again, there is a paid shooter sitting on death row in Malaysia, but the person identified as hiring him by police was let scott free without any further exploration of the motive for this murder back in 2015.
Likewise, there are seven accused ‘gang members’ and an army doctor still locked up in jail over the separate murder of prosecutor Kevin Morais, who drew up the original SRC charges against Najib currently being tried in court. Their trial was abruptly suspended over a year ago after the suspects started to give evidence that the alleged motive, which was to avenge the doctor whom Morais was tasked to prosecute over receiving bribes, was not correct.
Shortly before the trial was suspended one of the accused claimed they were offered RM3.5 by Najib himself to commit the murder. Why the prosecution has now suspended the trial and accused men have been allowed to languish now for years in jail without a trial is cause for concern. Either they can be proven guilty and motive established or they cannot.
It makes for quite a list of grisly deaths where Najib’s name has popped up in the proceedings only to be followed by interferences in the normal processes of a trial.- SR
Saksi hidup istidraj dan kotak Pandora...
Hari ni sebenarnya genap 10 tahun Najib bersumpah dengan nama Allah di dalam masjid yang di tidak kenal Altantuya (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctKoc6RwqXU). Sudah tentu sumpah Najib di luar mahkamah tiada pemberat macam mana sumpah najib under-oath.
Dahulu dia juga yang menafikan sekeras-kerasnya yang dia kenal Jho Low; bila masuk mahkamah, tiba2 dia mengaku kenal Jho Low dan kata semua skandal 1MBD yang terjadi adalah akibat dari perbuatan Jho Low.
Sebab itu kita jangan sesekali mudah percaya dengan siapa2 yang bersenang lenang bersumpah dengan nama Allah, Allah tidak pernah tidur dan 10 tahun Allah bagi kuasa, harta dan masa untuk Najib bertaubat tapi dia masih lagi sombong.
Teringat pula saya dengan cerita kesombongan Firaun yang Allah kurniakan Istidraj. Firaun ingat dengan kuasa yang Allah pinjam kan pada dia, dia adalah makhluk yang paling berkuasa. Dia membunuh sesuka hati termasuk lah anak-anak kecil dalam kandungan. Ini tiada beza nya dengan Najib Razak. Dia ingat dia paling berkuasa dan sesuka hati menyuruh orang membunuh ibu dan bayi dalam kandungan persis Firaun
Bila BN kalah, Najib sepatutnya bermuhasabah diri, tapi dia masih lagi berjalan dengan sombong di muka bumi Allah dan berbangga dengan pengikut ruwaibidhah nya. Tapi sebagaimana Firaun, pengikut yang ramai tidak mampu menyelamatkan dia dari di telan laut merah. Najib merancang dan Allah merancang, tapi perancangan Allah adalah yang terbaik.
Macam kalau ada orang mengamuk bunuh 5 orang di tempat awam, mahkamah boleh jatuh hukuman bunuh contoh ada video CCTV dan kesan cap jari tapi mahkamah tak tau sebab apa dia bunuh. Tak ke pelik? sakit jiwa ke atau memang ada malice intent?
Kalau polis decide nak buka semula kes ini, tolong lah reman dia bergari; penjenayah macam dia tak layak dapat layanan khas. Game plan Najib dari dulu ialah cuba delay seboleh2nya kes2 terbuka dia macam 1MBD, SRC, Audit 1MBD, Lari cukai sebab dia harap yang UMPAS akan menang PRU15 dan dia ada peluang untuk bebas.
Bila dia kena tuduh atas kesalahan membunuh, sudah pasti dia akan di reman sampai tarikh perbicaraan kes bunuh dia. Dia mungkin boleh keluar untuk hadiri kes mahkamah yang lain and that is it.
Itu belum masuk part kenapa DSP Musa tak di panggil langsung dan semua nya bakal terlondeh di kandang tertuduh seperti kes 1MBD. Dan mungkin mengaku gila (plead insanity) mungkin bukan satu idea yang buruk berbanding dengan tak tahu 46 kali.
Kira reman ini macam persediaan alam barzakh sebelum ke alam akhirat. Dulu bolehlah dia bayar peguam mahal untuk cuba delay perbicaraan, bila dah start bermalam dalam penjara baru dia kan sedar yang reality is hitting the fan. Lepas ini mungkin Najib sendiri akan merayu pada hakim supaya mempercepat kes2 di mahkamah sebab tak tahan duduk dalam penjara.
Seperti biasa kamu anjurkan solat hajat beramai2, ajak Deris Dhuha dan Dasuki Ahzab jadi imam. Minta lah pada Allah supaya kamu dan ulama kamu dibangkitkan bersama-sama Najib di akhirat jika kamu orang-orang yang benar dan Najib betul2 di zalimi. - Mohd Mukhlis Mohd
Mahkamah Persekutuan menetapkan tarikh 20 April tahun depan bagi mendengar permohonan Azilah Hadri menyemak semula keputusan hukuman mati kerana membunuh Altantuya Shaariibuu. Federal Court set April 20 next year to hear Azilah Hadri’s application to review his conviction and death sentence for murdering Altantuya Shaariibuu.
