1. Trial judge Mohd. Zaki expunged the confession on some technicality, even though Sirul had directed the police to the crime scene!
2. Altantuya was last seen leaving leaving the company of self-exiled (to Oxford, UK) Razak Baginda and the vicinity of his house, accompanied by not 1, not 2, but 3 Unit Tindakan Khas (Special Action Force) officers - Corporal Sirul Azahar Umar, Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri AND Azilah's long-time girlfriend, Lance Corporal Rohaniza Roslan.
3. Rohaniza contradicted several times in court her police statement, claiming she was "tortured" while in police custody and her life threatened by anonymous persons (from Mars). The prosecution filed for impeachment, but trial judge Zaki ruled that Rohaniza lied, but her testimony was credible. Huh? CLICK HERE and HERE.
Now where have we heard this kind contradictory logic before. Why, of course in the 2004 verdict written by two of three Federal Court judges in Anwar Ibrahim's Sodomy 1 appeal. There they wrote that they could not accept a word uttered by the unreliable accuser Azizan, but nevertheless they believed sodomy had taken place. They did not have the balls to convict Anwar, knowing it would be a travesty of justice, but played to Mahathir's gallery with screwed-up logic, and in the process, made themselves look like donkeys' ass!
The Court of Appeal seems to have completely ignored other evidence such as a blood stained slipper in Sirul's car and Altantuya's jewellery found in his apartment. During the trial, Sirul said he was “just a scapegoat who has to be sacrificed to cover up the ill intentions of those who were not in court.”
So, wither justice? Yes, the AG has appealed the Court of Appeals (CA) verdict. But, will the Federal Court deliver justice? I doubt it, not after the CA highlighted 10 "misdirections" by trial judge Zaki, while ignoring completely the direct evidence tendered.
This verdict is an insult to our intelligence and a slap in the face to justice.
If the justices had the slightest doubt, they should have ordered a mistrial. Especially, especially, especially, since for over 6 years, neither successive Inspector Generals of Police nor Prime Ministers, have given the orders to the police to answer that crucial question, which is the most damning indictment of our Government of Thieves, and possibly, murderers:
WHO GAVE THE ORDERS TO MURDER ALTANTUYA AND BLOW UP HER BODY TO BITS AND PIECES WITH C4 EXPLOSIVES?
NO ONE WAKES UP ONE MORNING AND SAYS "LET ME GO MURDER THAT BLACKMAILING BITCH AMINAH ALTANTUYA WHOM I HAVE NEVER MET AND KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!"
NO ONE GOES PREPARED TO KILL ARMED WITH GUNS AND C4 EXPLOSIVES, UNLESS THEY WERE FACILITATED BY PEOPLE IN HIGH PLACES, AND GIVEN THE ORDERS TO DO SO BEFOREHAND. THIS KILLING WAS PLANNED AND PREMEDITATED. OF THAT, THERE CAN BE NO DOUBT. A 12-YEAR OLD SCHOOLBOY CAN INFER CORRECTLY AS SUCH!
FIND THE REAL KILLERS AND YOU WILL FIND THE MOTIVE, WHICH TO-DATE HAS NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED. IT IS AN ADDITIONAL INSULT TO THE RAKYAT'S INTELLIGENCE BY OUR JUDGES AND PUBLIC PROSECUTORS TO SAY THAT THE MOTIVE FOR THIS MURDER IS NOT IMPORTANT.
THERE WERE 7.3 BILLION CORRUPT REASONS FOR A MURDER MOTIVE!!
