Zaid Ibrahim says the only way to get to the bottom of the Mongolian’s murder is to have an independent inquiry to address unanswered questions. zaid altantuya2

PETALING JAYA: A former law minister is suggesting an independent inquiry be set up to address the stream of unanswered questions still surrounding the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu nine years ago. In his latest blog entry,

Zaid Ibrahim said that while two men, Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar had been found guilty and sentenced to death for Altantuya’s murder, too many “who”s, “why”s and “what”s still existed. Saying only an independent inquiry could bring closure to the case, Zaid explained, “Justice in this case requires the country to have an independent inquiry to ascertain why the case unfolded as it did and to determine if the roles played by the Police and the AG were aboveboard.” He said if the government didn’t do this, Malaysia would be seen as a country “callous with human lives, with no regard for the truth”.

“I believe there are things we don’t know about the murder, and the conduct of the police and the AG regarding the matter has hardly been beyond reproach,” he lamented. “So far we have found two men guilty.

There could be more if the truth were allowed to finally surface,” he said. He listed six questions playing on the minds of what he termed as “ordinary men and women” that the court had not addressed before coming to their verdict of guilty.

The questions were “who” gave Azilah and Sirul instructions to kill Altantuya; “who made the offer” of RM100,000 to Sirul to carry out the deed; “what” words were actually used when the instruction was given to Azilah and Sirul to “assist Razak”; “why” were there changes in the prosecutors and High Court judge; “why” was private investigator Bala and his family asked to leave the country and did prime minister Najib Razak really know Altantuya despite his claims to the contrary. Zaid also questioned Federal Court judge Suryadi Halim Omar’s firm belief that DSP Musa Safri never instructed Azilah on how to assist Razak Baginda, and asked,

“How does the judge know this for sure? Azilah could have said this but Musa was never called as a witness.” Saying, “I am anxious to know what was on Musa’s mind when he decided to introduce Razak to Azila and Sirul,” Zaid added, “When you ask people whose job is to eliminate and destroy to ‘assist’ you, and they are in possession of C4 explosives, you cannot expect them to engage in peaceful and polite negotiations.

“You expect them to do exactly what they were trained to do: take orders, ask no questions and kill if necessary.” Touching on the question of motive, Zaid said, “only a madman kills for no reason. Everyone else has a motive for doing something.”

He added, “We need to make sure that we have not left important clues behind, and remove all doubt that the stakeholders in our justice system might have been less than honest in dealing with the case.”
