NST online dated July 23, 2008 reports that Lt Col Abdul Aziz Buyong and his wife, Lt Col Norhayati Hassan has filed a RM 2 million defamation suit against RPK for an allegation that both were involved, together with Rosmah Mansor (wife of DPM), in the murder of Altantuya, the Mongolian beauty.The murder case which is still being heard at the Shah Alam High Court, has attracted international attention, especially Mongolia which even threatens to sever diplomatic relations with Malaysia, if they find that the case is not well handled.
RPK had earlier been summoned by the police to answer questions relating to a 'defamatory' article that he wrote in his Malaysia Today blog regarding the Altantuya murder, and a Statutory Declaration that he had filed alleging the involvement of Rosmah Mansor, and the two army officers mentioned above.
Despite all that has been said against Rosmah and Najib relating to the murder case, both have yet to move a legal recourse against RPK. Keeping silence over such a serious allegation may conjure up negative impressions of both Rosmah and Najib in the minds of people who have been monitoring the case closely, more so among Najib's 'political adversaries'.
And with UMNO's General Assembly nearing, I suppose Najib has every reason not to worry himself over the RPK's allegation, but to focus his attention more to the upcoming general assembly, as this will have great effect on his political ambitions.
