Caricature of the brutal Spanish Inquisitors gruesomely trying to force the truth out of an innocent man by dissecting and bleeding him, the man was probably accused of being guilty of something. In the middle-ages, Spanish Inquisition has murdered millions of innocent Spaniard , Muslims, Jews, Gypsies and others all in the name of religion and politics.
Yes, it makes a good story line, that a man designated to be the next prime minister of the country is a murderer, but the catch is, it is purely based on innuendo, insinuation and guilt by association.
Another thing is, if there are indeed these alleged pictures of Najib Tun Razak sitting together with the dead Mongolian girl(may her soul rest in peace), Razak Baginda, and now Raja Petra Kamaruddin(RPK) assertion that even Kalimullah Hassan is also in the picture.
My contention is, if such pictures exist they would have surfaced during the last general elections which saw Najib won a majority if some 26,000 or so. This is an excerpt on what RPK said in his No Holds Barred column titled "Let's send Altantuya murderers to hell".....Many other ‘key issues’ raised by my non-lawyer friends, who all argued as if they were conducting the Altantuya murder trial, were matters such as how Altantuya’s immigration records could be erased from the Immigration computers, the letters Najib wrote to the Malaysian embassy supporting Altantuya’s visa application, the photograph of Altantuya, Najib, Razak and Kalimullah taken during Altantuya’s birthday party in the Mandarin Hotel in Singapore, and much more."
If such pictures really exist, which I have said above there is no such thing, we must bear in mind that Najib as a public figure might have inadvertently, unconsciously, tricked and sometimes forced into posing for photographs with crooks, charlatans, parvenu, carpetbaggers, con-man, and possibly prostitutes, who knows, eh!.
Once I witnessed a group of transvestites trying to ask Najib's security people for picture to be taken with the DPM at a small function but were told the DPM was in a hurry.
Imagine if they had a chance to pose with Najib and who knows years alter such pictures would surface and the caption would surely be "Najib is a homosexual".
I recalled my ex-journalist editor friend who was called by the then prime minister Mahathir Mohamad who asked him not to write or print picture of a Chinese community leader taken with an alleged crook.
Mahathtir purportedly told this friend of mine that he (Mahathir) too did not know he had posed with a crook when his picture was taken with a prominent man. This alleged "crook" was later charged in court for buggery and other crimes he committed against the people and government interest. Anyway back to Najib I am sure there are no such pictures taken of him and the dead Mongolian girl.
What I don't understand is how come RPK is not charged with contempt of court instead of being investigated under the Sedition Act? How can an unsolicited comments, accusation, innuendo, and insinuation designed to influence an on going cases are allowed to be made?
In a Civil Society like us we need not behave like Moron, the word means an adult with intelligence of a child and this prompted one blogger to write: "A convenient example is the case against Deputy Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak in his so-called involvement of the ‘Altantuya brutal murder’ and of course, the kickbacks from the Scorpene and Sukhoi military acquisition deals. Here in blogosphere, as far back as June 2007, we saw how “Blogosphere Drama Queen” Susan Loone obsessively posted on the murder and Najib’s involvement, 63 times before the trio were actually charged in court and the trial commenced. That was at a rate of one posting every three days, on the same topic! Then again, during the Ijok by-election in April 2007, Anwar Ibrahim’s entire campaign was solely centred on the “Scorpene and Sukhoi deal kickbacks” and nothing else. Not even how PKR is supposed to help the Ijok people. Again, at the point where BN leadership is very weak and the PKR led Pakatan Rakyat is not quite anywhere yet, in forming a Federal Government, the ‘gun sight’ in centred back onto Najib’s head. Most probably it is because Najib would be best option on the plate so far, to take over and revive BN. It became so intensive this round, that they even dragged poor and desperate Dr. Setev to Parliament (on top of the various press statements already arranged, including in PKR HQ) and later even resorted to make slanderous accusations against Najib’s wife, without any shred of adducible evidence, except in the ‘Court of Public Opinion’."
