Sirul to ‘tell all’ to hollywood publisher with highest offer with Option for Film Adaptation
Why did Judge Mohd Zaki dismissed to call Najib and Balasubramaniam despite his written declaration, which implicated Najib as a witness in the trial.
A statement by the confessed murderer of Altantuya Shaariibuu raises more questions
On November 9, 2006, at Kuala Lumpur’s Travers police station, Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, then a 35-year-old member of the country’s elite Special Action bodyguard unit under Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, sat down and confessed to the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu.
The dead woman, a Mongolian translator who had been executed nearly three weeks before in gruesome fashion with two bullets to the head, is at the center of what would be one of Malaysia’s biggest political scandals ever, involving not only sex and murder but hundreds of millions of dollars in defense contracts. But the case, which has been underway in a Shah Alam courtroom since June of 2007, is notable for what neither the prosecution, the defense or the judge appeared to want to be bought into open court.
After fleeing to Australia to escape the hangman's noose, former police commando Sirul Azhar Umar is now mulling answering the biggest riddle in the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder - why did he and Azilah Hadri shoot dead the Mongolian woman and blow up her remains with explosives?
Sure that Sirul would reveal everything concerning the murder Musa Safari,is the key man,yet Malaysian Court find that he is irrelevant.What a decision!Well wasn't that was done to break the link up direct to the supreme leader??
"Yes, I am seriously considering, the ex-police commando reveals that he acted under orders.," he told the press
The news portal reported that Sirul, who is being held at the Immigration and Border Protection Department facility in Sydney, was still negotiating terms.Former police commando Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, who was sentenced to death for the murder of Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu, is contemplating to reveal the reason that led to the gruesome murder nine years ago Sirul, a one-time bodyguard of Najib's wife, Rosmah Mansor,The 43-year-old told Malaysiakini that he never knew Altantuya or even Abdul Razak Baginda – the political analyst and a known associate of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak – who was acquitted with abetting the Mongolian's murder.
On Feb. 3, a tearful Sirul asked the court not to sentence him to death for Altantuya’s murder, saying he was like “a black sheep that has to be sacrificed” to protect unnamed people who have never been brought to court or faced questioning.
“I have no reason to cause hurt, what’s more to take the life of the victim in such a cruel manner,” Sirul said. “I appeal to the court, which has the powers to determine if I live or die, not to sentence me so as to fulfil others’ plans for me.”
Sirul and Azilah are now awaiting sentencing despite the fact that the trial was concluded in February. Sirul’s confession is an extraordinary and chilling document. In the session, tape-recorded and conducted in Bahasa Malaysia, or Malay language, Sirul was told he was not obliged to answer questions but that whether in answer to questions or not, his remarks would be recorded as a statement.
But although the volunary confession indicates that Sirul had been cautioned, it has been ruled inadmissible in the long-running trial of Sirul and his boss, Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri, and Abdul Razak Baginda, the admitted lover who jilted Altantuya after a torrid affair. Razak was later declared not guilty and freed without having to put on a defense. He has since left the country for England.
