NO 4-EYE MEETING Between ABDULLAH /MAHATHIR at National Heart Institute (IJN); END of CRTICISM from MAHATHIR? Rafidah’s & Brenda’s Relentless ATTACKS
Tun Dr Mahathir, speaking to interviewing team said: "So far so good; No UMNO General Assembly Meeting; on Doctor's orders. I will rest" UPDATE: Nov 11 06; 19:45hrs
"I Want To Rest After This," Says Dr Mahathir; November 11, 2006 By Ahmad Kamil Tahir
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 11 (Bernama) -- Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is being treated at the National Heart Institute (IJN), plans to take complete rest for several weeks, including staying away from the Umno General Assembly on Monday. "I want to rest...not making any statement...hope the (Umno) assembly runs smoothly," he said in an interview with Bernama and Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) Saturday, two days after being admitted to the IJN after complaining of chest pain at home. Dr Mahathir, who was wearing a short-sleeved shirt and long pants, appeared in high spirit although his condition was rather weak during the 20-minute interview.
Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali.: "After the attack happened, I immediately informed the Doctor, alerted the Driver, and later he was sent to IJN" Accompanying him was his wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali. Dr Mahathir said it was fortunate that he had sought immediate treatment as soon as he had the mild heart attack, and this had enabled the specialist doctors to dilute the blood clot in his coronary artery.
"The heart attack was mild but I came early, three hours after the attack...they (the doctors) managed to dilute the clot and there was no blockage.
Deputy priemier Najib:" He is in high spirits and doing well"
= = = =
Abdullah being such a kind hearted soul (he even visited the sick Datuk Partiban in KL Hospital during Raya time) was disappointed when he arrived at IJN and was told he could not see his enemy No 1 (or he refused to see him; SEE Bernama's REPORT BELOW (Nov 10, 12.41pm) – Tun Mahathir Still Under Observation “to be fine and appeared cheerful yesterday afternoon” i.e. during Abdullah visit at 2.15pm).So there was NO 4-Eye meeting in the ward except a 15 min chit chat with IJN’s CEO & the Chief cardiologist on Dr Mahathir’s condition, after suffering a “mild heart attack”.This probably resulted from the strenuous journey (11 hrs ) coming back from NZ after giving a talk in Wellington . Apparently the doctors "gave" strict instructions that Dr M should not be disturbed not even by the country’s No 1 man. If there is someone inside with him, surely another one would not harm him!
It was a big rebuff and this probably signals the end of Mahathir’s further criticism if he wants to value his life and extend it.His heart attacks might also be due to the continuing attacks on him by Rafidah & Brenda just before the UMNO assembly (which he has indicated he wants to attend) If he had read Rafidah’s and Brenda’s comments, his attack would have been more massive. However the DAP Leader WAS LUCKY on Friday and so were many others who came a calling .

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 9 (Bernama) -- Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who was admitted to the National Heart Institute (IJN) for chest pains early Thursday, has been put under mild sedation by doctors and is resting, his son, Datuk Mokhzani, said. "For the time being and for the next 48 hours, very unlikely anyone will be allowed to visit my father," he said. Mokhzani said even Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who visited Dr Mahathir Thursday afternoon, was not allowed into the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) by doctors to meet his father. “The Prime Minister only spoke to me and the doctors. He was concerned about the well-being of my father and asked the doctors to do everything possible," he told a horde of reporters waiting at the IJN lobby since the news about Dr Mahathir's admission to the premier heart centre spread like wild fire. Abdullah, who arrived at , spent about 15 minutes at the IJN and was briefed by IJN's Chief Executive Officer Mohd Radzif Mohd Yunus and cardiologist Dr Sanjiv Joshi on Dr Mahathir's condition. "Right now he is fine... he is resting and under medication. As far as the doctors are concerned, he is doing okay and stable. "It was a mild heart attack. The doctors said it only affected the left side of his heart... he is now on medication. There is no plan to do anything invasive. There is no stroke, no nothing," he said. Mokhzani said the doctors told him the treatment they have given Dr Mahathir was effective to alleviate the discomfort he was feeling earlier.
He said his father started complaining of chest pain at about Wednesday night and a doctor from IJN Datuk Nasir Muda came to the house at to give initial treatment before Dr Mahathir was rushed to the institute at .On how his mother, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, was coping with the situation, Mokhzani said his mother had a strong heart in facing the situation. "My mother has face it before... she is a tough woman. Previously, when my father was admitted in the hospital, she will check in and out with my father, she will never leave the hospital," he said. On whether Dr Mahathir could attend the Umno General Assembly beginning Monday, Mokhzani said he was sure his father would follow exactly what the doctors advised him.
"I think if the doctor says he has to rest here, then he has to rest here. That is priority," he added.

Rafidah: Deliberate With Constructive Criticism, No Rash Allegations;November 08, 2006
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 8 (Bernama) -- "Criticise but let it be a constructive one" is the advice by Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Rafidah Abdul Aziz to delegates participating in the debate at the party's general assembly next week. Her other advice is for delegates to give suggestions which are "reasonable and acceptable by the leaders". "They can raise issues concerning some people without embarrassing them ... there is no need to embarrass the person if the matter to be raised is of public interest," she said in a special interview here today. Rafidah, who is also International Trade and Industry Minister, said any proposal or suggestion raised should be meaningful and criticism made should be based on facts obtained from a thorough study. For example, at last year's Umno general assembly, there was a suggestion for each division to be given 40 Approved Permits (AP) to import cars a year, which can be likened to "asking the Malays to learn to sell APs, mortgage contracts and (engage in the) Ali Baba (scheme)". "Alas, it is back to the old ways. We want to teach the Malays to do business through franchise seriously, with contract. Even that is criticised," she said. Rafidah also advised delegates to avoid using foul or obscene language, making dirty remarks simply for fun and rash allegations although "they can joke to make the function merrier". The movement's leader since 1984, except for three years (between Oct 9, 1996 and May 9, 2000) when she failed to retain her post in the party election, said: "As Muslims, we should not insult or embarrass another person. ”We should remember that religion does not condone humiliation of another person," said Rafidah, who celebrated her 63rd birthday on Nov 4. Rafidah, who joined Umno in 1970, said that this time around the motion to be debated by the movement would be the same as those by the Umno general assembly which comprised a motion on the policy speech by the movement's leader, on economy and education as well as religious and social issues. She however said that she had yet to be inspired as to the issues to be raised in her policy speech at the assembly as well as the representatives to table and debate motion by the movement. Asked on the hot issues to be raised at the assembly, Rafidah said she could not anticipate "but according to trends and observations, the Wanita delegates will raise issues relating to former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's criticism of the government and the country's leadership". Besides issues on Malay interests and the Malay agenda, which are closely related to issues on language and race, there will also be issues on religion, including on apostasy as well as cases of wives left by their husbands, she added. Asked whether she expected the issue on APs to be raised again at this year's assembly, Rafidah said the matter was no longer an issue for Wanita Umno because she had explained the matter to the members. In fact, recently she had instructed her officer to "dig into all files and to release each and every working paper on the distribution of the APs, including minutes of meetings, the decisions that were made not by me but by the committee (on AP)". "Explain to Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) so that he can sleep tight on the believe that everything is well. For me... I cannot accept anyone who questions my integrity.
"I can be criticised on the way I administer or about my way, go ahead criticise, I do not care, but do not smear and touch on my integrity because I have taken my oath of office (before the holy Koran). "However, for the last time (when she responded to the issue) in religion, slander is a more serious offence than murder, and to me, all accusations hurled at me, including that one (where she was accused of corruption in the issuing of the APs), are all libellous," she said. Touching on Wanita Umno's struggle so far, Rafidah said she was satisfied with the opportunities provided to the women in the country who had since helmed various high posts, the latest being those of vice-chancellors of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and Universiti Malaya, as well as the presence of three women ministers in the Cabinet. Now the movement is seeking the government to upgrade the status of the Syariah Court similar to that of the same level as the Civil Courts to allow for syariah court judges to receive the same salaries and benefits, she said, adding that a working paper on the matter had been submitted to the Cabinet several months ago. = = = = = = = = = = = = = Rafidah Says She Hits Out At Dr Mahathir Because Of His Rash Accusations; November 07, 2006
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 7 (Bernama) -- Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Rafidah Aziz said Tuesday she had to counter the open criticism of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad against the government because it was "rash and tarnished the image of Umno and the government". She said that as a member of the Cabinet it was her responsibility to counter Dr Mahathir's criticism that the Cabinet was apparently "half-past six", and that she could not accept the ridicule. "I would be stupid to accept wrong accusations," she said in commenting on the allegations of certain quarters that she apparently did not give due respect to Dr Mahathir when she was the one who had been most supportive of the former prime minister at one time. Rafidah was the first person to rush to the rostrum to coax Dr Mahathir to withdraw his announced retirement at the 2002 Umno general assembly, to the extent that she broke the heel of a shoe. "As part of the current Cabinet, I have principles. What is right is right, what is not is not," she said in a special interview at her office. "If the accusations are rash and incorrect and are directed at Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and the present Cabinet and government, it will be too difficult to accept them," she said. "We do not blindly support anyone. If the leader is good and can be trusted, it is not a problem. But we must know our limits (in supporting a leader)," she said. Rafidah, who is Minister of International Trade and Industry, said that since Dr Mahathir began criticising the government, she has often been questioned by foreign politicians thus: "Why has Tun (Dr Mahathir) become like that? Why does he criticise the government that he has led before?" She said she had no answers to these questions. Asked about the sentiment of Wanita Umno members towards the issue of Dr Mahathir's criticism of the government, Rafidah said Wanita Umno was loyal to leaders. "For us, party unity is important, and it is improper for anyone to make open criticisms which clearly belittle the present Umno government and undermine the interests of Malays themselves. "When one criticises the party leadership and government helmed by the Malays, it is similar to criticising our own race, and it will tarnish our image in the eyes of outsiders," she said.
Rafidah said that as far as Wanita Umno was concerned, there were many channels to raise problems and issues with the government and such means should be employed by a former leader (than making open criticisms). "It is not difficult for him to telephone or communicate one-to-one with the present leaders on any issue (that he wants to raise)," she said. = = = = = = = = = = = =
BRENDAN’S PARTING SHOTS: Tun Dr Mahathir Hitting ABDULLAH BELOW The Belt By Character Assassination; DISCREDIT & DESTABLISE His Government
A vicious personal verbal attack, especially one intended to destroy or damage a public figure's reputation. Brendan Pereira on Monday: No one can win this clash of the year; From NST; 06 Nov 2006
SO much has been written and spoken about the clash of the year. With a week to go before this battle reaches a crescendo at the Umno general assembly, it may be timely to revisit some of the key points of. Caution: those above 18 who do not believe in freedom of speech or d ssenting opinions should avoid reading this column. What motivated the attack?
Personal interest, nothing else. In the early days, the bile-dipped arrows came packaged as the impassioned plea of a former prime minister concerned over the future of the country. But over time, all pretence was dropped. Dr Mahathir believed that he had put in place all the policies and projects that Malaysia needed. All he needed was to find a successor who would warm the top seat in the house and not tinker too much. He believed that in mild-mannered Abdullah he had found a caretaker who would safeguard his legacy and just follow the old template. His statement to TIME recently is an eye-opener: "I thought that I have done most of the things that will serve us for the next 100 years ... All that remains is for people to justcontinue. Don’t reverse what has already been done." The irony of this whole sad episode is this: the PM has deep respect and love for Dr Mahathir. But he did not see himself as a seat warmer. Why have the attacks become more personal? Simple. Dr Mahathir wants to re-define the public perception of Abdullah. Most Malaysians see the PM as someone with a strong spine, someone who is clean, someone with a strong moral compass, someone who believes in a more open and transparent country. These qualities and an election manifesto which caught the imagination of many helped Abdullah and the Barisan Nasional win a strong mandate in March 2004. As long as Abdullah’s image remains intact, mud catapulted at him would not have stuck. So in recent weeks, the attacks have been designed to paint the PM as someone who encourages nepotism and who tolerates corruption. Dr Mahathir has also criticised Islam Hadhari."He is almost a saint who is free from any human weaknesses or wrongs," said Dr Mahathir. That is the image he is seeking to re-define. Was there a tipping point in the attack? Arguably, the tipping point came just after the peace talks between Dr Mahathir and Abdullah on Oct 22. Remember both of them agreed to the four-eye meeting because that was what the ground wanted. Barely 24 hours after the two-hour meeting, the former prime minister unleashed his most intense attack on Abdullah, questioning his integrity and even mocking the way he took notes. For the fence-sitters, this fusillade of criticism was a clear signal that Dr Mahathir wasn’t interested in any compromise with the PM. He shared no common ground with Abdullah and went into the meeting looking to knock the PM into submission. Not the Hari Raya gift many people were hoping for. Most stinging comment uttered by Dr Mahathir It was only three words but they were designed to hurt and create doubt on Abdullah’s strongest quality — his integrity. After suggesting that the PM was involved in the United Nations food-for-aid programme in Iraq, he was asked his assessment of Abdullah’s personal honesty and integrity.
"I don’t know," said Dr Mahathir, despite knowing that a UN inquiry And the winner is...
Nobody. Sure, Dr Mahathir has hurt himself badly in this attack. He has come across as uncharitable, vindictive and even untruthful to some. His statement that he was willing to hold his tongue if the half-bridge to Singapore was built has come across as self-serving.
His attempts to chisel himself as someone who embraced openness seemed surreal. Still, only someone on magic mushrooms would argue that Abdullah has come through this spat unscathed. His record since becoming the PM has been run through the grinder and the spotlight has been shone on unfulfilled promises from the election manifesto.
What to expect at the Umno assembly There will be a conscious effort not to allow the Dr Mahathir issue dominate the annual gathering of Umno delegates. The consensus is that the party should give the leadership unvarnished feedback about expectations not met. At the same time, members will rally around Abdullah. = = = = = = Dr M Must Accept That Leaderships Differ, Says KelantanMB ;November 05, 2006
KOTA BAHARU, Nov 5 (Bernama) -- Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat said Sunday Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should accept the fact that the way he ran the government may not necessarily be similar to the leadership style of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. The PAS spiritual leader said the former prime minister would surely realise that every leader has his own way of resolving problems. "Tun (Dr Mahathir) must accept the fact there will be a difference between the previous and present governments," he told a news conference at his official residence here, one day after his discharge from hospital where he was treated for five days for a bout of flu. Nik Aziz said it was not necessarily so that every new government must continue with the programmes planned by the previous government because action must be taken according to the time and situation. "Even in my case, when I retire, the person who will come after me may not necessarily emulate my style (of administration) 100 per cent," he said. Nik Aziz also called for the extreme criticism levelled at Dr Mahathir to be stopped as a mark of respect for a leader who has led the government for 22 years. He said that though PAS was an opposition party that could benefit from the current scenario in Umno, it was not comfortable with the matter getting prolonged. He said the spat between Dr Mahathir and Abdullah should be stopped immediatelywithout any intervention = = = = = = = = P S Now stop AUTOMATICALLY

UPDATE 9:Nov 12thhrs DNA Results To Be Known Next Week, Says IGP; November 12, 2006
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 12 (Bernama) -- Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said Saturday results of the DNA tests in the investigation of the gruesome murder of Altantuya Shaariibu @ Aminah, 28, would be known next week. "So far, the police cannot confirm whether the remains were of Altantuya until the DNA test results are known," he told reporters after an inspector trainee squad alumni ceremony here. The police took blood samples from six people to assist in the investigation of the killing of the Mongolian freelance model who was believed to have been shot dead, and her body blown up with explosives at Tasik Subang Dam, Puncak Alam, Shah Alam, some two weeks ago. Those who took the DNA tests were the victim's parents Shaariibuu Mash-Muj and Altansetseg, both in their 50's, and four detainees, namely a political analyst, 46, a police chief inspector, a female lance corporal and a constable. The test was to determine the identity of the victim, whose remains were collected by the forensic unit at the dam area several days ago. Asked how soon would the police resolve the case, Musa replied: "Give us some time." = = = = =

PETALING JAYA, Nov 11 (Bernama) -- The family of Mongolian model, Altantuya Shaariibuu @ Aminah, 28, who is believed to have been gruesomely murdered two weeks ago, strongly believes that she is still alive. Altantuya's fatherShariibuu Setev, who arrived here yesterday, in his first meeting with the press here today, said that it was still too early to assume that the skeletal remains found by the police a week ago at a secluded spot near the Subang Dam in Puncak Alam, Shah Alam is Altantunya's. "We have to wait for the DNA results to prove that it is her's. Altantuya's fatherShariibuu Setev( ABOVE Right) spoke in Mongolian and was translated by AMY (Left) and the Consul announced the remarks
Until today I and my family believe that she is still alive...we are hoping that the remains that were found are not her's. "At the moment we can't ascertain anything, as the police only managed to find fragments of bones. Wait until the police complete their investigations," the teary eyed 56-year-old told a packed crowd of reporters and photographers at Mongolian Honarary Consul's office in Sunway Damansara, here. Shariibuu, who is also National University of Mongolia's Centre of Information and Education director, described his daughter as a loving, educated, caring and adorable person, and that he did not expect such a thing could have happened to her. He said that Altantuya was a graduate teacher who also worked as a translator in Ulaan Bataar (Mongolia's capital) as she was proficient inEnglish, Russian, Mandarin and Mongolian languages. She had lived in Russia until 12 years old. "My daughter also worked in a travel agency and as a part time model. She used to travel overseas for business engagements. "The last time I saw her was on Oct 7 before she left Mongolia and after that I tried calling her several times but failed to contact her," he said. Shaariibuu said that he was satisfied with the way the Malaysian police were investigating the case and hoped that the probe would be transparent and thorough. He said that he had come on the invitation of the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan, to help facilitate investigations into the case.

Her parents sent me the itinerary of the travel." He said Abdul Razak had paid for Altantuya to visit Malaysia in 2005. The consul said Altantuya re-entered Malaysia on October 6 intending to ask Abdul Razak for money to send her sick son for surgery in South Korea. "She was desperate because she wanted the child to have a cure. She comes from a good family, so she didn't do this. Whatever they say is not true," he said, referring to reports she had tried to blackmail the analyst. The consul said Altantuya, who disappeared on October 19, had tracked down Abdul Razak's home and office addresses using a private detective and that he had tried to avoid her. "They only managed to talk through the telephone," Syed Abdul Rahman said. "Maybe he wanted to end the relationship because this is his country. He's a reputable man."

According to reports here he is married with one daughter. = = = = == = Murder of Mongolian model sparks calls for independent inquiry
KUALA LUMPUR AFP 10/11/2006
Rights groups and opposition politicians in Malaysia have demanded an independent investigation into the death of a Mongolian model whose body was blown up with hand grenades. The murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu, whose lover's political connections stretch to the top of the government, would shake public confidence in law enforcement, said Lim Kit Siang, an opposition lawmaker with the Democratic Action Party. "An independent investigation is very urgent so that there will be no room for the emergence of a culture of immunity for any wrong," Lim told АFР. "It does not speak well for the government," he said. He said the case also raised concerns about the "easy availability" of explosives. The model, 28, was kidnapped outside the home of Abdul Razak Baginda, who heads the Malaysian Strategic Research Centre think-tank. She was killed and her remains blown up with hand grenades and found in an isolated area south of the capital Kuala Lumpur. She disappeared on October 19. Abdul Razak, 46, was detained Tuesday as part of the police investigation and is being held in custody until Sunday. Three members of Malaysia's police force have also been arrested for alleged involvement in the murder along with two private investigators, the Star newspaper said Friday.
Mongolia's honourary consul Syed Abdul Rahman Alhabshi said the murdered woman's father had brought a blood sample to Malaysia to help investigators determine if the "bit and pieces of flesh and bones" found at the crime scene belonged to his daughter. "The police had recovered her watch, ring and earrings at the scene," he told АFР. "I am confident there will be no cover-up. Those involved in the murder must be punished severely," he said. The slaying has rocked the political establishment because the analyst, who had been the model's lover, is connected to a number of senior politicians including deputy premier Najib Razak, who is also defence minister. Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi vowed Thursday there would be no cover-up over the murder. He said he had told Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan "that he will have to investigate thoroughly and properly and follow the due process". "Nobody is above the law, that is important to remember," he said. " Whoever is found guilty, action will be taken according to the due process of law." Lim described the episode as a serious breakdown of law and order.
"This Mongolian case has raised a lot of concern and the easily availability of sensitive and dangerous materials. Something is very wrong in our society."
He called on the government to follow through with a pledge to set up an independent police complaints and misconduct commission. S. Arutchelvan, coordinator with the rights group Voice of the Malaysian People (SUARAM) added his voice to calls for a commission despite opposition from the police.
"How can they obtain the explosives so easily?" he said, adding that the case had sparked public concern. "We demand an independent inquiry. The public is worried ... the way it is done with so much confidence that the perpetrators believe the crime will not be found out," he said. Hatta Ramli, a member of the powerful central committee of the Islamic Party (PAS), said an independent body should be established to investigate the murder, and specifically the use of explosives in the attempt to dispose of the body.
"An independent inquiry into the misuse of explosives is urgently needed," he added.

Meanwhile, early morning, the Mongolian Embassy Consul was asked to record a statement of facts at police Hq (see below)
Political analyst remanded in model's murder probe;from S U N Charles Ramendran & R. Surenthira Kumar
KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 8, 2006): The probe into the murder of a Mongolian model has deepened, with investigators revealing Hollywood-like drama shocks, twists and turnsin events before her death. While the plot and motives of the murder are being determined and pieced together, several private investigators hired by the victim and the political analyst's wife are now playing a role in providing crucial information to the police. Sources said the analyst's wife had hired a private eye early last month to monitor her husband's movements, after she suspected that he could be two timing her. However, the private eye is believed to have two-timed her instead when he joined ranks with her husband, who allegedly doubled the fee he was earning from his wife. Sources said the private investigator was also given another task by the analyst - to spy on the Mongolian woman, Altantuya Shaariibuu, also known as Anna Ana Ang. Sources said she had also hired the services of private investigators to track down the analyst, who evaded her after she arrived in Malaysia in early October. When the probe into her death began following a police report over her disappearance, it was the victim's private eye who had the information which has since led to the progress of investigations into the case. One private investigator, who was hired by Ang, helped her cousin sister lodge a police report after her disappearance on Oct 19, the day she is believed to have been killed. Police have recorded a statement from all the private investigators involved in the case. Sources said with the four people in detention - the analyst, a police chief inspector and two corporals - the police are expected to be able to solve the case. The bone fragments, which included the backbone, knee-cap and ribs, recovered by forensics teams from the Subang Dam in Puncak Alam, Shah Alam, will be sent to the Chemistry Department to confirm if they belong to Ang. At least one immediate family member of the victim is expected to arrive in Malaysia to have blood samples taken for a DNA match.

Magistrate Ahmad Solihin Abdul Wahid allowed the application by police to detain the two men until Monday under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation. The remand of the two men, aged 46 and 35, brings to six people detained for questioning in connection with the high-profile murder, including a prominent political analyst, believed to have a private relationship with Altantuya. The investigators, one of them a former policeman, was arrested at the Kuala Lumpur police contingent headquarters at Wednesday.

November 09, 2006 16:19 PMLawyer Issues Warning, Cites Subjudice In Mongolian Murder Case
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 9 (Bernama) -- A lawyer warned Thursday it is subjudice and tantamount to contempt of court for anyone to make statements of fact over the murder of a Mongolian woman in Shah Alam two weeks ago.
Datuk Muhammad Shafee Abdullah said legal action could be taken against those who touched on the facts of the matter in the murder of Altantuya alias Aminah Shaariibuu at the Subang dam area in Puncak Alam. Muhammad Shafee, who is representing a local political analyst now under remand to help in investigation into the case, said making such statements was unfair because it allowed the public to prejudge the case before a court decision. He spoke to reporters after meeting for about 30 minutes from about with the wife and family members of the political analyst at their home in Bukit Bandaraya here. Muhammad Shafeecriticised the action of the Mongolian honorary consul in Malaysia, Datuk Syed Abdul Rahman Alhabshi, for issuing a statement to reporters on the case which he claimed touched on his client's position. "That statement should have been brought to court because such action (of issuing a statement to the press) is also considered subjudice," he said. Asked whether he would apply for a court injunction to prohibit the issuing of statements by anyone relating to the case, he said the matter was under discussion. Muhammad Shafee praised the police for conducting the investigation in a professional manner without revealing the facts of the case to anyone. He said so far he had not had the opportunity to discuss matters formally with his client because the analyst was under remand to help with the preliminary investigation into the case. The magistrate's court here yesterday ordered the analyst to be remanded for five days to help in the investigation into the murder under Section 365 of the Penal Code pertaining to abduction and confinement. Muhammad Shafee said he had advised his client to give full cooperation to the police to expedite the investigation as well as to enable him to meet with his client soon to discuss the case.

Reporters who had gathered at the house of the political analyst early this morning found the front gate locked and the doors and windows shut though two cars were seen parked at the front. Meanwhile in SHAH ALAM, prosecuting officers from the Attorney-General's Chambers, officers and personnel from Bukit Aman Forensics Department and officers from the Survey and Mapping Department inspected the place again where the Mongolian woman, a 28-year-old freelance model from Ulan Bator, was killed and her body blown up with explosives.
The officers and personnel from Bukit Aman Forensics Department arrived in a four-wheel-drive vehicle and were seen entering the area at about . Fifteen minutes later, the officers from the Survey and Mapping Department arrived in a four-wheel-drive vehicle of the department. Shortly afterwards, a dark blue four-wheel-drive vehicle was seen bringing the prosecuting officers. Their visit to the area is said to be for a closer inspection of the place where Altantunya is believed to have been shot and her body blown up with three grenades. The reporters were prohibited from entering the alleged scene of the crime by plainclothes policemen. An unmarked while (see this SPELLING Check MISTAKE, IF you DON’T Read thru properly) Proton Wira car was parked across the road leading to the area. Altantuya reportedly came to Malaysia on Oct 6 with her younger sister and a cousin to look for the Malaysian man who is said to have had a sexual affair with her which resulted in the birth of a boy, now 16 months old. She is said to have had the affair about two years ago after she met up with the Malaysian in Mongolia. Altantuya is said to have come to Malaysia to ask for money to seek treatment for her son and met the man on Oct 19, the last day that she was seen alive. After Altantuya failed to return to the hotel where they were staying, her younger sister and cousin reported the matter to the police here and sought help from the Mongolian embassy in Bangkok. Following the report, three police personnel, one of them attached to the Special Action Unit, were detained to help in the investigation into the murder. Police then found body parts at the scene of the alleged crime in Puncak Alam. The 46-year-old political analyst was remanded yesterday. = = = = = === = =

The baby boy is said to be the result of an illicit love affair between the Mongolian woman and a local prominent political analyst.
Honorary consul of the Mongolian embassy in Malaysia Datuk Syed Abdul Rahman Alhabshi said Altantuya's father (name not available) is expected to arrive in Malaysia for DNA testing to ascertain whether the political analyst is the father of the baby boy.

Altantuya came to Malaysia on Oct 6 with a sister and cousin to look for a man said to be the father of her 16 month baby boy conceived during a torrid love affair. She is said to be involved in the illicit love affair with the political analyst who is also head of a local political think-tank. They met in Mongolia two years ago. Altantuya is believed to have tried to ask for money to treat the baby boy and met up with the political analyst on Oct 19, the last day she was seen alive. When she did not turn up, the sister and cousin lodged a police report and sought help from the Mongolian embassy in Bangkok. Based on the report, three police personnel, including one attached to the Special Action Unit were detained to assist in investigation.

Top political analyst arrested! Explosive end to affair that turned sour;NST 08 Nov 2006; Tony Emmanuel;An affair gone sour. A woman spurned. Blackmail. Murder...Prominent think-tank head and three police personnel likely to be charged today.
KUALA LUMPUR: The country was abuzz yesterday after a prominent political analyst was arrested in connection with the abduction and brutal murder of a Mongolian woman. The New Straits Times understands that Attantuya Shariibu @ Aminah allegedly demanded US$500,000 (RM1.85 million) as payment after he signalled the end of their affair. She claimed that she had given birth to his child and threatened to go public if her demand was not met. After checking and finding her claim to be false, he lodged a police report last month. What happened next is a bit murky but three police personnel — including two from the Special Action Squad — have been arrested and are likely to be charged with murder. It is believed that she was shot execution-style somewhere in Puncak Alam before her body was placed over some explosives and detonated. Using a battery of metal detectors, sniffer dogs and post- blast investigation equipment, police personnel examined a shallow grave and surrounding areas for nearly eight hours. They found a handful of bone fragments. Aminah’s case came to light after Aminah’s sister lodged a missing person’s report on Oct 21. In it, she identified the political analyst as a suspect. Bit by bit, the police dug and managed to put together a mosaic of what took place. They learnt that she and the analyst — who runs a think- tank — were introduced to each other at a party abroad a few years ago. They struck up a relationship and had been seeing each other off and on abroad. Several months ago, the analyst told her that he wanted to end the relationship. Early last month, Aminah, her sister and cousin turned up in Kuala Lumpur. She hired a private investigator to obtain as much information about the analyst. She also bombarded him with SMSes. She attempted to visit him at his office and home in Damansara but was prevented by security staff. The analyst also engaged the services of a security consultant to make sure that she did not continue to harass him. On Oct 19, she showed up outside his home and created a ruckus. Her sister said that Aminah did not return to their hotel in Chinatown and lodged a police report two days later.

08/11: Shock waves over detention of Najib's close aide; By Leslie Lau; The Straits Times. POLITICAL and intellectual circles here are abuzz with talk of the detention of one of their own in an investigation into the death of a Mongolian woman. Abdul Razak Baginda, who is in his 40s, is a close associate of Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak. He set up the Malaysian Strategic Research Centre (MSRC) in 1993, a private think tank specialising in defence and strategic issues, when Datuk Seri Najib was first appointed Malaysian Defence Minister. He is said to be in the inner circle of Datuk Seri Najib's supporters and aides and has been frequently quoted in Malaysian and international publications. 'I am in shock. I do not know why he has been arrested and how he can be involved,' said a close associate of Mr Abdul Razak, who declined to be named. Mr Abdul Razak is well-known not just in Malaysia but also among the region's many research organisations for his moderate views on politics and security issues. The suggestion of involvement in any extramarital affairs is a shock to many who know the man. Mr Abdul Razak is married with children, and is known to be obsessed with his work in the MSRC. He is also a regular on the lecture and seminar circuit and a talk show host on national television. His qualification as a stellar analyst is backed up by his qualifications. He was previously the Head of Strategic Studies and International Relations at the ArmedForcesDefenceCollege here. He is a graduate of King's College London and is a member of the World Economic Forum's (Davos) Global Leaders for Tomorrow as well as the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies. = = = = = 8th Nov 2006
