Najib not involved in Altantuya murder, says Sirul
Former police commando Sirul Azhar Umar has sworn in God’s name that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak was neither involved nor linked to the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu in 2006.
“I understand that it is the intention of certain quarters with vested interests to topple a certain someone. (But) I was never taught to slander a person.
“It is a big sin if I were to slander a person and I state here… In God’s name… the most honourable Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak was never involved and had no links to the case,” he said in the brief footage.
While he did not specifically mention what is “the case” that he said Najib had nothing to do with, in the context of his earlier videos, it seems to be a reference to the murder of Altantuya.
The 55-second long video is the third video purportedly of Sirul, that Malaysiakini had sighted via an anonymous source.
