SHAH ALAM: It was to have been a simple application to get political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda out on bail. But it turned explosive. Details of Abdul Razak’s affair with Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, whose body was blown up last year, were revealed when his affidavit was read in the High Court yesterday. Those in court had a shell-shocked look as Abdul Razak’s lawyer, Wong Kian Kheong, divulged information that implicated another man — Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri — in the murder of Altantuya. The court also heard that Razak and Altantuya were lovers but that, after seven months, their relationship turned sour. Razak is charged with abetting in the murder of Altantuya on Oct 19 last year. Wong said Abdul Razak had not asked Azilah to kill her.
It had earlier been reported that Altantuya’s body was blown to bits by explosives after she was shot. Only bone fragments were found by the police in a forest reserve in Mukim Bukit Raja, Selangor. But Wong’s unexpected move yesterday came to no avail as, after two hours and 15 minutes of hearing, judge Datuk K.N. Segara dismissed the application and refused bail. Abdul Razak will now have to stay in jail until his case comes up for hearing in March next year. No one had any inkling about how explosive the day would turn out when Wong stood up before Segara to make the application for bail.
Accused: I gave her US$10,000 on 3 occasions
Looking directly at Segara, he said: "I’m taking an unprecedented step. I’m presenting Abdul Razak’s affidavit." Segara quickly cautioned Wong to think of the wide implications of this move. Unperturbed, Wong started reading Abdul Razak’s affidavit, outlining the events before and after the death of the Mongolian woman. In the affidavit, Abdul Razak said on Oct 17 last year, he had gone out into town with his family members when he was told by a private investigator hired by Abdul Razak that Altantuya was causing a commotion outside his house in Bukit Damansara. Abdul Razak said he called ASP Musa Safri to seek his help in removing her from his house. Policemen went there later to remove her. He said Musa also told him he would send Azilah to help him.
The moment Azilah’s name was mentioned, Zulkifli Noordin, who was holding a watching brief for Azilah, (ABOVE, left or right) rose to stop Wong from implicating his client.But Segara shot down the application, saying: "You sit down and don’t get too excited. You did not file any affidavit." Azilah and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar have been charged with murdering Altuntaya. Wong then continued by saying that Azilah met Abdul Razak at the latter’s office the following day. Altantuya came to Abdul Razak’s house again on Oct 19 and a private investigator informed him that she was there. Abdul Razak then telephoned Azilah. Wong said Azilah later told Abdul Razak: "Tonight, you can sleep in peace."Abdul Razak said he was informed by the private investigator that three plainclothes policemen had come in an unmarked police car to take Altantuya to a police station. Abdul Razak said he went to the deputy prime minister’s office on an official matter on Oct 20 where he, coincidentally, met Musa. "I asked Musa what had happened after the second commotion. Musa replied that Azilah did not come back to him. I asked him again (Musa) but he did not say anything," Abdul Razak said in the affidavit.
Abdul Razak said if he had really wanted to kill Altantuya, it would have been easier for him to pay a hired killer to eliminate her outside
He said there had been no necessity to arrest her. "Azilah was not acting as a police officer in his dealings with Abdul Razak," Segara concluded, adding that Abdul Razak did not sever ties despite the policeman boasting of killing six or seven people. The judge said upon reading the entire affidavit, he found that Altantuya had not made any threats or blackmailed Abdul Razak but that "he wanted to eliminate her because of the financial drain on him and because she was leeching him". He said Abdul Razak could have gone to the police. Also, he had Gurkha guards to protect his family. "Under these circumstances, bail should not be granted because the alleged crime committed was serious," he said. He also chided Abdul Razak for dragging the name of the deputy prime minister into the picture. Abdul Razak and his family members appeared shocked when Segara made his ruling. They were in tears as they hugged him before he left the courtroom. Abdul Razak has three options: To stay in jail until his case comes up for hearing in March next year, make a fresh application to Segara with a medical certificate in hand or go to the Court of Appeal.
Judge: You have an uphill task to convince me
EXCERPTS from the exchange between High Court judge Datuk K. N. Segara and Abdul Razak Baginda’s counsel, Wong Kian Kheong.
Wong: There are no reasonable grounds to hold Abdul Razak in prison as he is not guilty of the charge.
Segara: I want the facts, then you go into the law.
Wong: I’m going to read the sworn testimony of the applicant.
I (Abdul Razak) knew her (Altantuya) sometime in November 2004 and ended it in 2005. She extorted money from me, and I decided not to bow to her demands. But she harassed me through telephone calls and letters. I told my wife, other family members and my staff about her. I sought a lawyer’s advice, who told me to engage a private investigator (PI) to protect my family. I also sought the assistance of ASP Musa Safri, who introduced me to Azilah Hadri.
Segara: We will take into consideration what you have put in. But the conduct of the accused will be looked at from the abetment line.
Wong: Musa told Abdul Razak that a police officer will help, following a commotion caused by Altantuya outside the house on Oct 17. Abdul Razak met Azilah at his office on Oct 18.
Segara: Is this the normal conduct of a person who is being blackmailed?
Wong: Abdul Razak told Azilah not to do anything to Altantuya.
Segara: Did he approach the police? The conduct of the lawyer, the policeman and the accused are questionable because they did not deal with the authorities. But I am not saying the accused is guilty.
Wong: (Continues reading.) On Oct 19, the PI phoned me that Altantuya was outside my house. I asked Azilah for help.
Segara: Why him? Is he the person to ask for help? How is he going to admonish her? The applicant should have gone to the Inspector-General of Police or the OCPD for protection. Anyway, he has got his own security.
Wong: He wanted his family to be protected.
Segara: No, the accused wanted to protect himself. What’s his motive other than to get rid of her? So that he could sleep soundly after she disappears?
Wong: He did not ask him to kill her.
Segara: You are telling me that your client is not guilty and should be freed?
Wong: There is no reasonable grounds to believe that he committed the offence. My Lord, please draw an inference favourable to him.
Segara: He should not have created an embarrassing situation for the DPM. He should have gone to the IGP. If the victim had indeed blackmailed him, she would have been charged and by now would have been sent back home. She would not have died.
Wong: No embarrassment to the DPM. (Continues reading the affidavit.) On Oct 20, a man, claiming to be a police officer, and two women came to my house. The man abused and threatened to harm my family. I went to lodge a police report on Oct 23.
Segara: Was he receiving threats well after the murder?
Wong: No, even before that he had received threats.
Segara: As an intelligent person, don’t you think he did it ( lodged the report) to cover himself?
Wong: On Oct 31, my client made a statement to the police. He said he had an affair with the victim. He ended the relationship because he could not stand her harassment.
Segara: They should have gone to the hotel where she stayed to caution her. The matter would have been over on Oct 18. We have a situation of the applicant giving detailed instructions to Azilah.
• On the failure to produce a medical report.
Segara: I can’t see any report unless I am blind. You will have an uphill task to convince me. There is no evidence he’s incapacitated due to his illness.
Wong: My client is in Sungai Buloh prison.

SHAH ALAM: Political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda did a tell-all on his illicit affair with Mongolian beauty Altantuya Shaariibuu in a desperate bid for bail pending his trial on March 10 next year. The 47-year-old, who is charged with abetment in the murder of Altantuya, tried to convince the court that although he had an affair with the 28-year-old he did not order anyone to kill her. Despite the attempt, he failed to secure bail (See page 8 for judge’s grounds for rejecting bail). Razak’s counsel Wong Kian Kheong read out three documents – an affidavit and two statements recorded by police from his client in October – to support the bail application.
The details unfold with Razak acknowledging that he had met Altantuya in
“It became very clear to me that she was both manipulative and at the same time, very convincing. Feeling vulnerable, I gave in to her threats and paid. This went on for three times and finally I came to my senses,” he said. In the affidavit, Razak also said: “I first got to know her in
He duly employed P. Balasubramaniam for that purpose by Oct 16, but the harassment continued, so he sought out DSP Musa Safri, whom he had befriended through his work at the Malaysian Strategic Research Centre. Razak said he asked DSP Musa to get police to patrol near his house for security reasons and the DSP introduced him to C/Insp Azilah Hatri. On the morning of Oct 17, he said, Altantuya came to see him at his house but his wife found out about it as he was not home. “That night, there was a commotion outside my house and I immediately called DSP Musa. I also called the private investigator. “I did not lodge a police report because my lawyer had advised against it.
“Furthermore, DSP Musa had assured me that C/Insp Azilah would call me to help regarding the harassment,” he said. On the morning of Oct 18, C/Insp Azilah called Razak and told him that he had killed six or more people before and therefore could help him stop the harassment. “I told C/Insp Azilah not to do anything untoward against Altantuya. If any such thing were to happen to her, her family will look for me. I believe that as a police officer, he would not commit crime,” Razak said. “I only asked him to get police to patrol around my house. I gave him my address and (that of) Hotel Malaya where the deceased was staying.” The next day, on Oct 19, there was another commotion outside Razak’s house and he called C/Insp Azilah again.
“Azilah told me to ask my private investigator to continue talking to Altantuya until he arrived,” he said, adding that he again told C/Insp Azilah not to do anything untoward. “Moments later, Azilah telephoned me and told me that he had arrived outside my house and that 'malam ini encik boleh tidur nyenyak (sir, tonight you shall sleep soundly) '.” He said C/Insp Azilah, Kpl Sirul Azhar Umar and a policewoman then took Altantuya away in a police car. (Both C/Insp Azilah and Kpl Sirul are charged with the murder of Altantuya). Razak claimed that he had met DSP Musa at the Deputy Prime Minister’s office and asked what happened to Altantuya but DSP Musa said C/Insp Azilah did not update him.

Mongolian’s murder: Razak reveals his relationship with Altantuya
R. Surenthira Kumar, SUN
ABOVE & BELOW: Arriving as usual with family support
SHAH ALAM (Jan 19, 2007): In a desperate bid to secure bail, political analyst Abdul Razak Abdullah today revealed in High Court his relationship with Mongolian interpreter Altantuya Shaariibuu. Saying that he first met Altantunya in Hongkong at the end of 2004, and in a relationship that lasted about eight months, Abdul Razak said he gave her US$10,000 three to four times, and more. He said Altantuya told him that she was a student, and to earn a living she worked as a “part-timer” but Abdul Razak did not elaborate what it meant. He said he also took pity on Altantuya because she said her mother had cancer. Razak’s statement was contained in an affidavit tendered to the court by his counsel Wong Kian Kheong who read it out. The affidavit was tendered by Wong in an attempt to obtain bail which High Court judge Datuk K.N.Segara had denied him earlier because there was no medical grounds to support his application for bail. Wong told the court that there were no reasonable grounds to hold his client under detention as he has not been found guilty.
He then tendered the affidavit which details Abdul Razak’s movements, actions and relationship with Altantuya. Abdul Razak said he got acquainted with the Mongolian woman in Hongkong at the end of 2004 and had met her in
During Wong’s argument, Abdul Razak was seen asking Wong’s assistant for a piece of paper to jot down something before passing it back for Wong’s attention. In the affidavit, Abdul Razak also explained about the harassment he encountered from Altantuya when he decided to end his relationship with the woman. He said the matter became serious when Altantuya continued with the harassments through SMSes and telephone calls and he decided to seek help when Altantuya threatened to harm his daughter. Based on a lawyer’s advice, Abdul Razak hired a private detective, former policeman P. Balasubramaniam and an assistant. The private investigators were supposed to provide security to him and his family members who were told about the affair with Altantuya. Abdul Razak also sought the aid of a DSP Musa Safri who introduced him to C/Insp Azilah Hadri. He said Musa had told him that Azilah would be able to help him and he met him (Azilah) personally once, while at other times the communication between both of them was through telephone. Abdul Razak said in the affidavit that Azilah was responsible for the death of about six or more people and he would be able to help the political analyst.
At this point, lawyer representing Azilah, Zulkifli Noordin interjected by saying that the accusations against his client were unjust. Segara ordered Zulkifli to sit and not to get excited as he was supposed to hold a watching brief and not take part in the proceedings. As Wong continued with the affidavit, Segara interjected from time to time telling him to stick to the facts and not draw inferences from the events that unfolded as Abdul Razak attempted to “get rid” of Altantuya. At one juncture, Wong skipped part of the affidavit on Abdul Razak meeting Musa at the Deputy Prime Minister's (DPM) office on official matters, during which he (Abdul Razak) enquired about Altantuya’s fate.
Segara became angry and said: “Why are you avoiding the part, there’s nothing to hide, the DPM would not be embarrassed if the matter is mentioned. This is the court. Everything has to be disclosed.” Segara said the affidavit produced by Abdul Razak pointed to a conclusion that he had abetted with Azilah to “get rid” of Altantuya from his life, but the matter was to be deliberated when the trial begins. He said Abdul Razak despite knowing that Azilah had killed several people, chose to continue seeking his aid. Wong said Abdul Razak had specifically told Azilah not to cause any harm to Altantuya, but he did not want her to be sent to lock-up and later deported as the Mongolian would be angry with him and his relationship with her would come out in the open.
The court was also told that at one point, Azilah told Abdul Razak “Tonight sir, you can sleep peacefully”. Wong also tried to substantiate his appeal for bail by saying that the previous two judges who heard Abdul Razak’s case had allowed him to be released on bail, but Segara cut him off by saying he will not comment on their decisions. After Wong was done, DPP Salehuddin Saidin tried to stand up to speak but Segara quickly told him: “You don’t have to say anything.” Wong declined to comment when asked if he would appeal against the decision.

Shedding tears, Abdul Razak hugged his wife, daughter, parents and siblings as he was led away by the police to prison.
ABOVE & BELOW: After the tears, the embraces, Abdul Razak escorted from the court to the lock up. It was hard for the wife taking it all.
Earlier, Segara said the court was unable to consider Abdul Razak’s application as he had not fulfilled the exceptional circumstance for him to be allowed bail. “There is not a single evidence to show that he is incapacitated by illness. Is he telling the truth or is he malingering,” said Segara. He said Abdul Razak had failed to produce a medical report in relation to his medical condition and therefore the court was put in a difficult situation as it was unable to weigh his application based on exceptional and special circumstances. “Without the benefit of a medical report, I won’t even consider. It must be supported by documents. I have given enough time but the medical reports were not forthcoming at all.
“Affirment that he is suffering serious medical conditions and hypothesis that he requires constant medical attention is insufficient,” he added. Segara also said he was rather amazed, based on details in the affidavit, that the medical conditions allegedly suffered by Abdul Razak was not detected by the Gleneages Medical Centre but was determined when he sought treatment in Kuala Lumpur Hospital after his remand. Segara also said the offence Abdul Razak was charged with is serious and non-bailable. However he said, Abdul Razak can at anytime approach the court if his medical condition, as claimed, became evident and the court would consider his application for bail at that time, based on evidence produced

SHAH ALAM, Jan 19 (Bernama) -- The High Court Friday dismissed an application for bail by political analyst Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda who is charged with abetting the murder of a Mongolian model last year. With the application struck out, Abdul Razak will be in jail pending hearing of the case which has been fixed for next year. Judge Datuk K.N. Segara rejected the application on the grounds that Abdul Razak did not submit his medical report and that the offence facing him was a serious one. Last Dec 14, the same judge had struck out Abdul Razak's oral application for bail and ordered the accused to file in a formal application. The court fixed today to hear the application by Abdul Razak who was represented by counsel Wong Kin Kheong. Abdul Razak, 46, is charged with abetting two policemen from the Bukit Aman Special Action Unit in the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, 28, at the 10th floor, Bangunan Getah Asli in Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, between 9.54am and 11.O5am on Oct 18 last year.
