Abdul Razak: Najib and Rosmah have never met AltantuyaPosted: November 20, 2008
From the Malaysian Insider:
Political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda said today that Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had never met his Mongolian lover Altantuya Shaariibuu who was brutally murdered two years ago.
He pleaded for the “lies about Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife” to stop.
At a press conference today, he said: “I know Najib and his wife had never met the deceased, Altantuya.”
At today’s press conference, Abdul Razak said that those who have slandered the Najib and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor can “never produce authentic evidence because there is none.”
He said that there was no linkage between the deceased and the submarine deal, which has been the subject of widespread speculation as the motive for the murder of Altantuya.
He said the deal was inked in June 2002 but he had only met the deceased in late 2004.
“I fail to see the connection. These are vicious lies,” he said.
When pressed on who the liars were, he acknowledged that they were bloggers without naming any specific individuals.

I can’t say I’m surprised with this latest turn of events. I’m mighty interested to see the response from blogosphere though, now that Abdul Razak has come straight out to say that everything has been a ‘lie’.
I wonder if Abdul Razak knows anything else other than Najib and Rosmah not being involved. Just wondering, not insinuating anything. 😉
