The US has shown a lot of sympathy for Anwar, asking the Malaysian government to attend to the case without prejudice.
Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi intercepted the US statement as trying to intervene in Malaysia's domestic affairs. Foreign Minister Rais Yatim said Wisma Putra will send a note of protest to Washington. Internal Security Minister Syed Hamid described Anwar as being a snitch to the US.
Another statutory declaration (refer to rockybru) by Balasubramanian is providing a new zoom-in to Altantuya murder case.
Najib Razak, the deputy premier (who had earlier denied any link with the deceased) is one of the names mentioned in the statutory declaration.
...That Najib was the one who introduced Altantuya to Razak Baginda. The trio then met in Paris. Prior to that, Najib told Razak in Singapore that he had been in bed with Altantuya and asked Razak to take care of her since he (Najib) was deputy premier and didnt want any sort of harassment from her.
Razak wed Altantuya in South Korea (to cover his boss backside, maybe). Altantuya was pressing for that US$500,000 in commission for a submarine deal in Paris (the Scorpene, perhaps).
Where are all this leading to?
Pak Lah said recently that he and Najib have reached an agreement as to when he will hand over the premiership to his deputy.
Agreement? Of what sort? Get Bukit Aman to apply a blanket on Altantuya's case? Then, set up another one for Anwar as to distract public attention towards Najib?
But Anwar already lodged a police report against IGP Musa Hassan and AG Ghani Patail whom he accused of fabricating evidence during his first sodomy case in 1998.
