“Your Majesty, I accuse the Prime Minister of Malaysia Najib Tun Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor of being the diabolical creators of this miscarriage of justice over the last eleven years, and of defending this sorry deed of Altantuya’s murder and that of her unborn baby, by all manner of ludicrous and evil machinations. I accuse Najib and his wife Rosmah of being the hands, if not behind the conspiracy to murder Altantuya, then most certainly the ones that instituted a complete cover-up.” Chapter 25.
With these words, I have thrown down the gauntlet at Malaysian prime minister Najib Tun Razak, and what I have branded as his government of thieves. In simple words, TRUTH and JUSTICE must prevail.
Unchecked power leads to gross abuse of authority, and ultimately, corruption and contempt for the rule of law. The culmination of it all was the brutal murder of Mongolian Altan Shaariibuu, 28, in 2006, deep in the jungles of Malaysia. The truly horrific nature of her execution was revealed globally when it was discovered that her cold-hearted killers had first shot her in the head, and then, had her body blown up to bits with C4 explosives!
The Altantuya murder has all the allure and elements of a classic modern thriller novel, albeit a sad read – multi-billion dollar government-to-government international procurement contracts for stealth Scorpene Submarines, the murky global arms trade, sex, spies, corruption, multiple murders in several countries, blackmail, botched up investigations, government cover-ups, spineless elected politicians, policemen, attorney generals, lawyers, prosecutors and judges. Most of all, cowering behind a sham elected government, are a Malaysian prime minister and his party, hell-bent on clinging on to power at any and all cost.
So long as Najib refuses to order an independent Royal Commission of Inquiry to determine who gave the orders to kill Altantuya, he must stand accused of murder, cover-up and perversion and obstruction of justice. He has brought great shame and disgrace to Malaysia across the world.
Matters have worsened due to his culpable role in the RM46 billion (US$10.5 billion) fraud and fiasco at wholly Ministry of Finance owned company, 1MDB. As also Finance Minister, Chief Adviser and sole approving authority at 1MDB, Najib stands accused of international conspiracy to commit fraud launder money, misappropriation of funds, abuse of power, failure to discharge his fiduciary duties, falsification of accounts, obstruction of justice and cover-up. He is primarily responsible for promoting a culture of dishonesty and corruption that pervades almost every aspect of his party, UMNO, and government, Barisan National, and his administration.
The world is watching. Many already regard Najib and his government of thieves as a rogue pariah regime. One wrong step and he will send Malaysia careening towards fourth world and failed-nation status!
Malaysians must never allow brazen vindictive murder to be covered-up and brushed aside, especially when committed by those who are elected to high office. We The People, must send a clear message to Najib that he must be held accountable for this most heinous of murders.
The Altantuya slaying must never be allowed to be contemptuously dismissed by Najib, and forgotten in the sands of time.
