The plot thickened, but where are the murderers ?

Asia Sentinel reported that “...An influential Malaysian Web journalist alleges that Najib Tun Razak's wife was present when the Mongolian translator was murdered in 2006. In an explosive statutory declaration to a Malaysian court, one of Malaysia’s most prominent web journalists has alleged that the wife of Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak as well as a Malaysian Army officer and the officer’s wife were directly involved in the murder of Mongolian translator Altantuya Shaariibuu on October 19, 2006, and that people at the very top of the Malaysian government are aware of the fact.....” Read further at Malaysian Deputy Premier's Wife Allegedly Linked to Murder

The Deputy Prime Minister's wife was physically involved in the murder of a Mongolian citizen ? This week indeed starts with an explosive C4 bang ! I do wonder, how come none of the Malaysia's MSM gave prominent coverage on this explosive revelation ? The question is, is the Statutory Declaration filed by Raja Petra the truth nothing but the whole truth ? In his Statutory Declaration, Raja Petra also alleges that the Prime Minister and few other high profile people have information on the involvement of the Deputy Prime Minister's wife in the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Sharibun. The murder trial has been going for more than a year now, but how come this “evidence” was not brought up in the on-going trial ?

This news report by Asia Sentinel does made Malaysia looks like a despotic, lawless, and mugabed nation in the eyes of civilized nations. I do sincerely hope that the Statutory Declaration made by Raja Petra is merely a fragment of his journalistic imagination. But whatever it is, to a layman like me, it seemed real. I do hope the Prime Minister can view this news report seriously and immediately initiate investigation to restore the good name of Malaysia. After all, this crime involved the murdering of foreigner with two bullets in her head, than blown up her body using military explosive to destroy evidence. How barbaric can it be ? Malaysians have the rights to know whether there is a cover up of high profiles people's involvement in this barbaric crime. In extreme situation like this, elegant silent is not an appreciated option. The Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister must come out in the open to clear their names. Otherwise, Malaysians will forever be made a laughing stocks and accorded disrespects by the international community.

This murder case has gone on for far too long, and it is an injustice to the victim's family as well. Let's have the political will and moral commitment to throw all resources available to bring the real perpetrator(s) of this barbaric and heinous crime to justice. Maybe, to established credibility and professional handling, the authority should also request the help of Scotland Yard and American FBI to help out. Let's apprehend and send all those barbaric criminals to the gallows to restore the good name of Malaysia.

I pray for the soul of the murdered victim. May the almighty lift her soul to enlightenment. May the family members of the murdered victim be blessed with the grace and courage to accept their precious lost and move on with their life. May the murderers be forever have sleepless nights, live in hell, and eventually bought to the gallows.

Namo Amithaba Buddha.............
