Pak Lah: RPK is not rightPosted: June 25, 2008
KUALA LUMPUR, June 24 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi stated emphatically today he does not believe his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak and wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor are involved in the murder of Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Neither has he received any military intelligence report about the murder, Abdullah said in response to allegations in a sworn statement made by Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamaruddin on June 18.
“I am concerned. What he (Raja Petra) did is unacceptable. What he said is not right. He said in his statutory declaration I have been given a report about the murder by the military intelligence. That is not correct,” Abdullah said after a meeting in Parliament.
Asked specifically if he ever received any report, Abdullah replied, “No… I do not remember receiving anything and am confident that I did not receive anything. Nothing was sent to me.”

Aiyo… How lah like this?
The investigations have yet to start, I think. And already Pak Lah is saying that he did not receive any report regarding this issue. One part of the SD by RPK was that a report containing the details was handed over to Pak Lah, which he later handed to his son-in-law. If I’m right, they should be investigating as well whether this is true.
So now that Pak Lah has openly said that this is untrue, how are the invesetigations going to proceed? They would be hardpressed to find evidence contradicting the PM.
Najib and Rosmah have not yet been around to say anything in their own defence. But perhaps laying low and quiet is the only beset thing they can do right now. Whatever they say to the press is going to be along the lines of “I didn’t do it”, anyway.
Let’s wait and see.
