A filepix of the murdered victimHigh Court Judge Mohd Zaki Md Yasin today found Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri,32, and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, 36, guilty for killing for the muder of Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu three years ago and sentenced to death.
Mohd Zaki said that the two failed to cast any doubt on the prosecution's case.
Based purely on the tried cases (and disregarding rumours, innuendos, conspiracy theories et cetera), we now know as “fact” the following regarding the murdered Mongolian translator/analyst girlfriend/victim:
The who: Azilah and Sirul
The when: between 10 pm, Oct 19 and 1 am, Oct 20, 2006
The where: between Lot 12843 and Lot 16735 Mukim Bukit Raja
And the how: gunshots followed by explosives.
What’s left is the question WHY.
Just WHAT WAS IT that made the two men shoot the deceased and then blow her body to smithereens?
The Prosecution submitted the murder was pre-planned and thus there must be a WHY in place for the two to painstakingly plan out the crime put into effect that night.
In what must be the the basest of crimes against mankind, there is almost always a WHY: hatred, crime of passion, to conceal another crime, fear, jealousy, anger, obstruction.
You’d have to be a truly evil person to kill someone “suka – suka”.
To pre-planned a murder and the body's following disposal of the murdered victim in such a manner indicates that the WHY must be a substantially strong WHY indeed.
Would I be in contempt of court in asking for this WHY?
The judgement in full would make interesting reading.
