Media Statement (2) by Lim Kit Siang in Petaling Jaya on Tuesday, 5th May 2009:
Will Tsu Koon, Tee Keat or any other BN Minister dare to raise in Cabinet tomorrow the swirling serious allegations about Najibís involvement in the Altantunya C4 murder case, in particular RPKís latest blog?
Blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin has made more revelations about the Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu C4 murder case which calls for response from an administration which claims to be committed to accountability, transparency, integrity and good governance.
In his latest blog, Raja Petra mentioned names, including Datuk Seri Jamaluddin Jarjis, former Cabinet Minister and confidante of Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Lt. Kol Azmi Zainal Abidin, the number two in the Special Branch of the Military Intelligence, as well as other information which will add grist to the swirling serious allegations about the involvement Najib to the Altantunya murder case.
Whether true or otherwise, and regardless of whether Raja Petra has become a fugitive from the courts, the net result of Raja Petraís latest blog is that even more questions will be raised about the swirling, haunting and hounding allegations about Najibís involvement in the Altantuya murder case.
This is completely unhelpful to Najib in establishing his credibility, integrity and legitimacy as the countryís Prime Minister, whether among Malaysians or the world.
These swirling serious allegations haunting and hounding Najib and his admistration concerning the Altantuya C4 murder case cannot be avoided and must be addressed frontally.
Will the Minister in the Prime Ministerís Department responsible for the integrity and KPI of Ministers and Gerakan President, Tan Sri Dr. Koh Tsu Koon, the Transport Minister and MCA Minister, Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat, or any other Barisan Nasional Minister dare to raise in the Cabinet tomorrow the swirling, haunting and hounding allegations about Najibís involvement in the Altantunya C4 murder case so, in particular Raja Petraís latest blog, so that it could be an official item of Cabinet agenda?
A special Cabinet meeting should be convened just to discuss this one issue, to consider what is the best way to deal with these swirling serious allegations which will not go away, including the proposal I had repeatedly made in Parliament for a Royal Commission of Inquiry to deal with all the allegations haunting and hounding Najib especially as he had said that he was innocent and had not done anything wrong.
