RPK’s declaration (and Rosmah) to be investigated

Which is exactly what should be happening. His declaration, and the contents of it, are serious claims. I would say that he has to be relatively sure of himself before making such a statement, and I seriously wish him all the best. We don’t have a very good track record when it comes to the police force against the “truth”.

Raja Petra Kamarudin, yang mendakwa mempunyai maklumat pembabitan isteri timbalan perdana menteri dengan pembunuhan Altantuya Shaariibuu, akan disiasat polis.

Selain pengendali blog Malaysia Today, yang mengulangi tuduhannya itu dalam akuan bersumpah 18 Jun, turut disiasat Rosmah Mansor dan dua lagi nama yang dikaitkan – seorang pengawal peribadinya dan suami wanita terbabit yang didakwa “pakar bahan letupan C4”.

Raja Petra, yang diseret ke mahkamah awal bulan lalu atas dakwaan serupa, mendakwa ketiga-tiga berada di lokasi jenayah sebelum wanita warga Mongolia diletupkan.

Now, compare the piece of news above, and the one from the StarOnline below:

KUALA LUMPUR: Police will be calling up Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamaruddin to investigate allegations in his recent statutory declaration on purported facts related to the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said the three individuals named in the document filed on June 18 would also be called up.

In the declaration, Raja Petra claimed that the trio – one of them a prominent woman – were present at the scene during the murder of the Mongolian translator in October 2006.

Copies of the two-paged declaration together with the identity of the trio have been posted on various blog sites.

A prominent woman?


What is wrong with publishing the name of that prominent woman? After all, like what is said in the report, the declaration has been posted almost everywhere on blogosphere! And we, bloggers and readers of blogs, know who the three people are! We know their names.

Why is the StarOnline depriving those with no internet access, the knowledge of what is really going on? And this is not even a behind-the-scenes sort of thing!

And here we are all talking about media freedom, about repealing the PPPA.

I guess for whoever who wrote this article, or whoever who decided to omit the names of the trio, media freedom is furthest from their minds.
