Witness Says Altantuya Left Note Of Murder Threat

SHAH ALAM, June 28 (Bernama) -- The murder trial of Altantuya Shaariibuu Thursday heard about a note left by the Mongolian beauty before she died, relating her ordeal of being harassed and alleged murder threats by political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda.Prosecution's sixth witness Burmaa Oyunchimeg (ABOVE) told the High Court here that she found the note, handwritten by Altantuya, while she was packing her cousin's belongings at Hotel Malaya between 9pm and 10pm on Sept 20 last year.
Testifying during examination-in-chief by DPP Manoj Kurup, Burmaa, 26, a beauty salon operator, said she found the note, written in English on both sides of a Hotel Malaya's letterhead in the front compartment of a white Guess bag belonging to Altantuya.

She told the court that her cousin wrote in the note that Abdul Razak was trying to kill her.
Burmaa read out the contents of the note in court:

"Dear all Malaysian government or police, or Embassy of Mongolia, or newspapers. My name is Shaariibuu Altantuya. I came to Malaysia to see boyfriend Mr Razak Abdullah Baginda. He (is) married and lives with daughter Roweena and wife and parents in Damansara Height, Jalan Setia Jaya 22. His office (is) in Jalan Ampang. Yes, I have been visiting his house and office because I needed to see him. Yes, I asked from him money but I have reasons.
"I am a nice person, I can't hurt someone but Mr A. Razak Baginda is a powerful person. He has money. He has connections in (with) police, in government.

He (is) trying to scare me, trying to kill me.
"He send his two Indian men to follow me, one of them Suraj (K. Suras) Kumar, he (has) been coming to my hotel room every morning around 5am and knocking (on the) door, trying to scare me. "They (have) been following me for four to five days. Even to my hotel, I'm staying, workers (also) know. That time I (was) really scared, I have some problems now.

"Mr Razak Baginda promised to help me when I was (in) Mongolia. That (is) why I came to see him and for help. But he (is) trying to kill me and that Indians told me they have connections with police, so they will put (me) to jail.

"Yes, maybe I did mistake to bother him, to blackmail him but if he didn't promise to me, I would never come from far away to Malaysia. The only reason I am here is I'm asking help from Mr Razak."

"I get P.I., private investigator Mr Poh. But today, he told me that Indians would kill and put (me) down from window.

And before I write (this) letter, I suicide myself because I have no choice, he told that they have my letters so they kill (me) and say she suicide."

Burmaa told the court that she later handed the note to Altantuya's father Setev Shaariibuu.

Manoj tendered the note as an exhibit in the high-profile trial which entered the ninth day today. Before adjourning for lunch, Manoj told the court that he would be tendering four more notes written on Hotel Malaya letterheads when the trial resumes this afternoon.

More memos and letters containing threats tendered as exhibits

R.Surenthira Kumar, SUN
SHAH ALAM (June 28, 2007): The prosecution today tendered memos and letters, containing threats, purportedly written by the late Altantuya Shaariibuu to Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda, prior to her death. Deputy Public Prosecutor Manoj Kurup who introduced the documents to the court when the trial resumed this afternoon, brought them to the attention of the prosecution's sixth witness, Burmaa Oyunchimeg, a cousin of Altantuya. The documents, which comprised writings on three Hotel Malaya memos and an A 4 size paper, were shown to Burmaa for verification as to whose writing they were. Burmaa, who identified the writings as Altantuya's, was then asked to read out the documents, one by one, to judge Datuk Mohd Zaki Md Yasin.
They read:
* If you prefer money than life it is ok. Hope you will prefer more than money than Rowena life. Better hurry Razak.
* (With a signature and dated
Nov 9, 2006) Mr Abdullah Razak Baginda.
* (With the letterhead Hotel Malaya Sdn Bhd (6524-A),
Kuala Lumpur'. MEMO.

I account, I check goes, And you happy ok. And don't try to cheat me, your friends, your lawyers can't help you. Today is Monday if now you send, everything will be ok. And by the way how feel? Not having temperature? Not yet?

* How are you Mr Razak! My father sent me. Please contact me by tomorrow morning this number 0173992411 (a signature) daughter. I have something it's asap. My father asked me for.
* (Addressed on an envelope) MSRC. Mr Razak Baginda. 10th floor.
* (on A 4 size paper) Razak. Don't play ok. I saw today morning and yesterday too. I will stay at your office outside or you call now or i'll come to your home today. Amina.

Defence lawyer, Wong Kian Kheong, representing Abdul Razak told Mohd Zaki they will reserve the right to challenge the admissibility of the documents until at the end of the prosecution's case. The same sentiment was echoed by other defence lawyers.
Cross examined by lawyer Kuldeep Kumar, who together with Hazman Ahmad represented C/Insp Azilah Hadri, as to how she could ascertain the writing was Altantuya's,

Burmaa said she could based on two poems, a New Year greeting card and a birthday picture with writing at the back, which was sent to her by Altantuya in 2003 and 2005.
Challenged as to how she could remember the handwriting after a lapse of two years in 2003 and nine months in 2005, Burmaa maintained she remembered Altantuya's handwriting.

Burmaa was also asked about Altantuya's belongings left behind in the hotel room which were later taken along by Namiraa, Uuriintuya and her when they moved to Hotel Florida in Brickfields from Hotel Malaya and later to Hotel Eastin in Petaling Jaya.

Burmaa, a management and marketing graduate from the Mongolian university and at present a hairdressing saloon owner, told the court she did not hand over two bags belonging to Altantuya to the police after her disappearance.

Asked if she had checked Altantuya's bag,

Burmaa said the black small bag was padlocked but the other white bag contained a pair of Christian Dior earings and necklace made from black coloured stones.

Cross-examined by Wong,(ABOVE)
Burmaa said she had been in constant touch with Abdul Razak, either by speaking on the phone or by exchanging SMSes.
She said Altantuya had given her handphone number to Abdul Razak to enable him to contact Altantuya through her.
Wong: Do you agree with me in 2005, through your handphone and also text message, he (Abdul Razak) had ended his relationship with the late Altantuya? Do you agree or disagree?
Burmaa: Disagree
Wong: I put it to you, the third accused (Abdul Razak) informed you through your handphone and text message, in April 2006, informed that he no longer was paying anything to Altantuya? Agree or disagree?
Burmaa: Disagree.
Questioned as to whether she had asked Altantuya on the outcome of her visit to Malaysia last August, when Altantuya went to meet Abdul Razak to sort out what she described as a "small misunderstanding" , Burmaa said her cousin told her everything was okay.
Burmaa was also asked whether she had contacted private investigator P.Balasubramaniam who was hired by Abdul Razak to prevent Altantuya from meeting the political analyst.
Asked if she had Balasubramaniam's phone number,
Burmaa admitted she did.

Wong: Did you send SMS to Balasubramaniam on Oct 21, following the disappearance of Altantuya?
Burmaa: Yes
Wong: Can you read out the SMS in court?
When Burmaa hesitated, and Wong reminded her that she was under oath, she admitted sending the SMS to Balasubramaniam.
Wong: Read it out. My client is facing a capital offence. Read it in the same tone.

ABOVE & BELOW: Burmaa Oyunchimeg (sometimes called Amy) learned her English expletives in HK?

Burmaa: You sick f****rs listen to me carefull ... i'm gonna call his wife ... already report to Mongolian Consulate in Malay(sia) ... you chicken shits are in big problem"... i'll do my best i promise...

Wong: Isn't that a threat?
Burmaa: Yes .
The cross examination continued with Hasnal Rezua Merican, representing Cpl Sirul Azhar Umar questioning Burmaa about her arrival here, her visits to the police station and also the number of times the police took her statement.

The trial continues tomorrow.

Altantuya told me about misunderstanding with Abdul Razak: Burmaa

SHAH ALAM (June 28, 2007): Murdered Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu told her cousin that there was a little misunderstanding between her and Abdul Razak Baginda when she was informed of the political analyst's SMS saying that he did not want to see Altantuya again.Burmaa Oyunchimeg, 26, who described the relationship between Abdul Razak and Altantuya as "so close like boyfriend and girlfriend" testified in the High Court here that Altantuya came to Malaysia to meet him to sort out the misunderstanding.
During examination-in-chief by DPP Manoj Kurup,

Burmaa, who is also known as Amy, said the SMS she received from Abdul Razak when she was in Hongkong read: "Amy, could you let Altantuya know, I don't want to see her again" in 2006 and that she related the message to Altantuya.
Manoj: The text message you received from Razak Baginda (Abdul Razak) that he didn't want to see Altantuya again, did you communicate with Altantuya?
Burmaa: Yes, I asked Altantuya about Razak Baginda's SMS.
Manoj: What was her (Altantuya's) reaction?
Burmaa: She (Altantuya) said there was a little problem. It is not something big. I will sort it out.

Manoj: Did she tell you what the little problem was?
Burmaa: She just said this was a little misunderstanding.
Burmaa agreed with Abdul Razak's counsel Wong Kian Kheong during cross-examination that Altantuya told her that she (Altantuya) had sort other misunderstandings with Abdul Razak., reports Bernama.

Burmaa, a graduate in management and marketing and operates a beauty salon, testifying on the ninth day of the murder trial, said she was introduced to the political analyst by Altantuya, who was also known by another name "Amina", for the first time in Hongkong in 2004.
She said the second time she met Abdul Razak, whom she later identified in court as the person wearing pink shirt in the accused dock, was in January 2005 in
Shanghai and the third time was in Singapore in March 2005.
Burmaa said Altantuya and her, who were first cousins through their fathers, flew to Shanghai in 2005 to meet Abdul Razak and had arrived there a day earlier before Abdul Razak and that she and her cousin (Altantuya) went to meet Abdul Razak in the airport the next day.

She said they then went to the Hyatt Hotel.
Burmaa said she went to
Singapore because Abdul Razak and Altantuya were already together in Singapore.
"Abdul Razak used to contact me when he was in Hongkong. I was studying English in Hongkong. Altantuya used to visit me and most of the time Razak Baginda will contact Altantuya through my handphone while she (Altantuya) was visiting me," the sixth prosecution witness said.
She said Abdul Razak, when he was either in
Malaysia or England, would always call Altantuya through her (Burmaa) handphone whenever he wanted to speak to Altantuya.
In the dock are Chief Inspr Azilah Hadri, 30, and Cpl SirulAzhar Umar, 35, charged with murdering Altantuya, 28, in between lots 12843and 16735 in Mukim Bukit Raja at

Witness Testify Razak Baginda Did Not Want To Meet Altantuya Anymore

SHAH ALAM, June 28 (Bernama) -- Abdul Razak Baginda sent an SMS to Burmaa Oyunchimeg, a cousin of murdered Mongolian beauty Altantuya Shaariibuu, saying that he did not want to meet Altantuya anymore, the High Court heard Thursday. Burmaa, 26, a beauty salon operator, said the political analyst wanted her to convey his wish to the Mongolian model. Earlier, she told the murder trial that she met Abdul Razak thrice when he was in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore between 2004 and 2005. At the three occasions,

Altantuya, 28. was with Abdul Razak and she (Burmaa) knew that her cousin was very close with the political analyst, the sixth prosecution witness said during examination-in-chief by DPP Manoj Kurup on the ninth day of the high-profile murder trial. In the dock is Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri, 31, and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, 35, from the police special action unit, charged with murdering Altantuya at lots between 12843 and 16735 in Mukim Bukit Raja here between 10pm on Oct 19 and 1am on Oct 20 last year. Abdul Razak, 46, is accused of abetting the two policemen in the murder. The three face the death sentence if convicted.

Burmaa also said she had been in constant contact with Abdul Razak when he was in England and Malaysia if the political analyst failed to contact Altantuya who was in Mongolia. She also said Abdul Razak had contacted her to convey to Altantuya that he had deposited money into her account.

= == = =

SHE was intelligent, aggressive and fiercely independent.

Her aggression was reflected in testimony during the trial when she was reported to have called her lover a 'bastard' for ignoring her. Born in a country run by communists, she yearned for a life of freedom and opportunity.

Interview with The New Paper (Singapore) on Sunday,

ABOVE: Ms Altantuya Shaariibuu at St Mark's Square in Venice, Italy.

Her parents encouraged it, and brought her up to be independent, well-educated and worldly. Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu (right), 28, was well-travelled and was fluent in English, Russian, Chinese, Korean and Japanese. Her intelligence, her fierce independence and cosmopolitan outlook, made her the apple of her father's eye - and, eventually, the lover of Abdul Razak Baginda. Now, both men are in grief. Abdul Razak met her at a party in another country a few years ago. They are said to have seen each other on and off abroad after that - till a few months before her death, when he told her that he wanted to end the relationship. He now stands accused of having played a part in her murder.


Dad Shaariibuu Setev, 57, has been a broken man since she was brutally murdered here in October last year. As if the pain of her death wasn't hard enough to bear, he has had to endure all sorts of scandalous stories about his daughter. Some were true, some not.
He said although the Malaysian media portrayed her as a 'bad person', she was a simple person. He is a psychology professor and his wife is a Russian language teacher.
Ms Altantuya was their eldest child.

In an interview with The New Paper on Sunday, Mr Shaariibuu explained how first-borns are special in Mongolian families. Her parents gave her the nickname Amina.
'She was called Amina because it is a Mongolian word for 'my life, my own',' he said.
The first-born is special because Mongolians believe that childless couples eventually break up.'She was a precious love for me and my wife,' he added. He has a younger daughter, Ms Altanzul, 28, who gave birth to her first child two weeks ago.
Contrary to some reports, Ms Altantuya was never a Muslim, said her father. Nor was she a full-time model. She grew up in Ulan Bator, the capital city, and had a happy childhood. She received her primary education in the remote city of Chimkent in the Soviet Union and later completed high school in Leningrad. There, she mastered the Russian language and learnt English as her second language, her father said. When she returned to Mongolia, she enrolled in a university and studied to be an English teacher and translator. Mr Shaariibuu claimed she completed her studies in two years, instead of the usual five years. He wanted her to have the skills and knowledge to survive when Mongolia became a democratic country in 1992.


'Everything was new. Women had to compete in society to do well. They had to be independent,' he said. As Mongolia's ties with China began to improve, Mr Shaariibuu advised his daughter to learn Mandarin. So she spent three years in Beijing studying the language. It was not too difficult for her to learn new languages, he said. She also picked up Korean and Japanese on her own. Asked to describe his daughter, Mr Shaariibuu said she was a beautiful woman. 'Wherever she went, every single man stopped and looked at her,' said Mr Shaariibuu, emphasising 'single'. Was she a model? After all, most articles referred to her as a Mongolian model. Mr Shaariibuu laughed mockingly, the only time he laughed during the interview. The thought seemed ridiculous. 'There was another Altantuya who was a model and friend,' he said. He said his daughter was not a model but a professional interpreter. Ms Altantuya Honggul, a Paris-based Mongolian model, looked strikingly similar to his daughter. When reporters got hold of a collection of photos of the former, he told them they weren't his daughter. 'Still, the next day, they published those photos and said they were my daughter,' he added. At 1.63m tall, Ms Altantuya was too short to be model, he said. She did model part-time but only for magazine photos to promote some costume jewellery which she imported from Korea. The stress and anguish was obvious on his face and in the way he talked - slowly, reflectively. He said that other than photographs of her, 'everything else is gone'. Mr Shaariibuu has had to be treated for high blood pressure since he arrived in Malaysia. In court on Friday, he broke down when he was asked to identify a photograph of his daughter. During the interview, his lawyer,

Mr Bayar Purevdorj, who did the translating, explained that they don't mention her name when referring to Ms Altantuya. Said Mr Bayar: 'In our belief, we don't say her name. It will unsettle the dead person. 'We refer to her as 'the deceased'.' Although Mr Shaariibuu has filed a RM100 million ($45m) suit against the three accused and the Malaysian government, he said no amount of money would be enough. He added: 'Her life was priceless; it cannot be valued. 'But I have two grandsons who don't have a father and mother to bring up. One of them needs medical treatment of at least US$15,000 ($23,000) a year.' His daughter led a busy life, he said. Said Mr Shaariibuu: 'Her whole life was dedicated to studying, learning and developing herself. And taking care of her two children. 'She even told her younger sister not to go out so often but to study, learn and not to give birth too early.' It has been reported that Ms Altantuya married Maadai, a popular Mongolian singer, in 1996 when she was 18. A son was born to them, but the relationship lasted only two years. Soon after her divorce, Ms Altantuya reportedly married the son of a famous designer. That marriage too did not last long. They divorced without any children after two years. Her younger son was born later and the father was said to be another Mongolian man. Despite all this, Mr Shaariibuu said she was a dedicated mother, who single-handedly brought her children up. Now it's up to him to take care of her 'legacy' - her two boys, Mugunshagai, 9, and Altanshagai, 4.


He remembers the day she died. It was Mother's Day.In Mongolia, he said, it is a time when daughters buy underwear for their mothers. Ms Altantuya bought one for her mother, but did not manage to give it to her. 'Until today, I have not been able to give that underwear to my wife. How can I? It would shock her,' he added. His wife, Madam Altantsetseg, 52, is suffering from cancer. He is in Kuala Lumpur to see that justice is done, and won't leave until he is satisfied, even though he misses his family. He is impatient for the trial to end so that he can arrange to take home his daughter's remaining bone fragments, which are being held as trial exhibits. He had earlier taken home a quarter of the bone fragments, and held a first burial for his daughter. Said Mr Shaariibuu: 'I want to give her a proper burial. Have you heard of any one having more than one burial?' It's the least he could do for her, he said.
