Abdul Razak: Najib and Rosmah have never met Altantuya

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. 😉

    Since the cat is out of the bag, let’s have it all out. I do hope RPK will produce his ‘prove’ that say otherwise. Let DSAI substatiate his claims. Let TianChua produce the photos if he has any. Let once and for all we have the real truth for all to judge.

    This is taking just far too long for us to live with. Let those be responsible for what they claimed. And after all these, I will still not be surprised that someone will say … you know aaa, actually aaa, they not like that, this is all just to hide the real thing … and the conspiracy wheel truns on.

    Michelle,

    You realise there is one glaring thing missing since the beginning of this year or so.

    If you recall at the time Baginda was charged, his wife, daughter and family and friends were all fired up with statements like “I don’t want to be PM” and that sort of things. Subsequently over some frustrating news, Baginda was heard to have lashed out.

    Now, when RPK came out with the Statutory Declaration pointing the finger at someone else, and later when PI Balasubramaniam issued the first SD exonerating Baginda, I would have thought the family as well as his lawyer would have gone to town screaming and shouting their innocence. Yet we were met with silence. They did not even seem to want to bring these into consideration for the judge to determine if defense was to be called.

    Question is, did they already know the outcome?

    I think the family owes us all an explanation over this silence of theirs.
