‘Najib never met Altantuya’ Stop spreading lies, says Razak
KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak never met Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, says Abdul Razak Baginda.

“I implore all of you and the public to stop spreading lies about the DPM and his wife. I know Datuk Seri Najib and Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor have never met Altantuya,” said Abdul Razak who was acquitted of abetment in Altantuya’s murder.

“Those who have spread such lies can never produce any authentic evidence because there is none.

“The truth is the truth and nothing can change the truth,” he told a packed press conference yesterday.

When asked how he knew Najib was not involved, Najib’s former political analyst smiled, looked at his lawyers and then replied: “I just know.”

Abdul Razak said he has had no contact with Najib since his release from prison and was more interested in getting his life back on track.

He also denounced the “lies” that Altantuya was involved in certain deals, such as the submarine deal.

“There have been all sorts of stories and insinuations about the link between the deceased and some deals. But everyone is lazy these days and don’t check their facts.

“The purported deal was signed in June 2002. I first met the deceased in November or December 2004. I fail to see the connection but it went on and on. These are malicious lies,” he added.

Abdul Razak, who expressed his deepest sympathies to Altantuya’s family for their loss, said he was coming out to tell the truth because “I do not want to turn a blind eye and allow the liars to prevail.”

“I am caught in the ‘damned-if-you-do-and-damned-if-you-don’t’ situation. But to be indifferent is to be irresponsible,” he said.

What a relief. I mean, had he not told everyone that, we wouldn’t have known the truth… having seen so many unsavory statutory declarations and missing men… Good grief!

But then, why only do it now? Well, my guess is, he was distraught and upset when he was behind the bars. Now that he’s a free man, he must have gotten all the coolness to talk about it. Or perhaps he had a temporary memory loss inside the lock up due to poor diet (bad nasi lemak?). And now that he has gained back the loss nutrition, the memories naturally came back to him and he revealed it to the world.

Anyway, I was thinking – if this whole thing were to be unfolded in a James Bond flick, I would have duly suspected that Baginda must have used this ‘forbidden knowledge’ as a bargaining chip for his freedom. The DPM would have no choice but to get Baginda’s ass out, lest he’d spill the beans. And when that eventually happens, Baginda would seal his part of the deal by exonerating the DPM through several means. They’re like, scratching each other’s back, put the matter to rest and get started to conspire on some other cooler things… (I reckon that’s when James Bond comes in to ruin their shit. Jeng jeng jeng!)

So, who should be the James Bond for this?

  2. michaelooi says:

    But Baginda did make a very good point – why hasn’t anyone come out with a solid piece of evidence yet?

    This is as intriguing as the murder itself.
