DATO NAJIB AND HIS ACCUSER.
RPK of Malaysia Today fame, the blogger who seems to have a death wish, has done it again. This time, he has let published, his statutory declaration. That alleges that Datin Rosmah Mansor, wife to our DPM was one of several persons at the scene of C4ing the Mongolian Altantuya.
Many people would have unkind things to say about Datin Rosmah. This SD however borders on incredulity and can only be despatched by a thorough finding by the police. Both Dato Najib and Datin Rosmah should allow the police to investigate the authenticity or falsity of the SD.
The trial for the murder of the Mongolian is still in court. Any interference by way of comments can be regarded as sub-judice. The public has an interest to see this trial come to a speedy conclusion. The public is amazed that the trial is taking an inordinately long time to finish. The trial has cast aspersions on the effectiveness and efficacy of the police. Under normal circumstances, they can easily offer findings through thorough police interrogation. I have heard a senior police officer said that just by having the accused wear a helmet and then knocking the helmet with a small hammer, will make the accused reveal everything under the sky. So why aren’t they doing this. They have arrested the alleged perpetrators and yet can’t seem to elicit information from the accused. Are the police treating their own kind with kids gloves?
We can’t fathom what motivates RPK from letting his SD be published. It could be a figment of his imagination made dignified by a statutory declaration. It is very incredible for a person who is normally very diligent and careful about his writings to make an SD based on hearsay and information from a third party. Unless the 3rd party was there at the crime scene.
The question is what must Dato Najib do? His reaction was expected. This SD he says is part of a concerted plan by some people to taint his political image. Even our Prime Minister has come to his defence denying that he has received confidential information from our military intelligence. Khairi Jamaluddin who is said to have also obtained a report from the military intelligence has also denied that he has received any.
The police must come up with a speedy conclusion on their investigations. A person’s reputation is at risk of being severely tarnished beyond repair. The UMNO elections are just around the corner. The latest aspersions on our DPM’s character and reputation can be an issue to demolish him. In the interest of justice, this sordid affair must be concluded one way or the other. By the way, will the police be interviewing the Malay ruler who is said to be another recipient of the SD?
