Motiveless Murder

The suspect or suspects as well as the motive for the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu remain unclear, said lawyer for the Shaariibuu family Karpal Singh.

“I think it is important to establish the motive. What motive did the two have? They didn’t even know this woman, ” he told reporters yesterday after C/Insp Azilah Hadri, 32, and Kpl Sirul Azhar Umar, 36, were sentenced to death by the High Court.

He said the person who had the motive to kill Altantuya should be implicated and convicted with the 2 Special Action Force (UTK) officers.

Karpal Singh also said that Dr Shaariibuu would proceed with the application for a judicial review of the Attorney-General’s decision not to file an appeal against the acquittal of Abdul Razak Baginda on October 31 last year.

“There is a preliminary objection that the A-G’s decision cannot be reviewed by court. I say that it can be done”, he said. (The Star, 10 April 09)
