Why Is The Normally Reticent A-G So Keen To Stop Public Discussion On Altantuya’s Murder Case?

That is the question which popped up when I first read this report in TheStar.

Gani: Stop all public discourse on Altantuya’s murder case

Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail wants all public discourse on the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder case to stop.

He said any discussion on the case, which has been fixed for hearing on June 4, could lead to unhealthy speculation and this might have legal implications.

“I take a serious view of the reports by the mass media and especially those posted on websites, and public lectures connected with Altantuya’s murder case.

“I will like to stress that the case has been fixed for hearing on June 4 at the Shah Alam High Court and it may be subjudice to debate and discuss the case,’’ he said.

Gani said such discussions could also affect the administration of criminal justice and undermine the public’s trust and confidence in the administration of law and justice in the country.

He reminded that the parties involved in the case were entitled to a fair trial in which all evidence that were admissible would be tendered and adjudicated by the court.

“Justice in this case must not only be done but seen to be done. As such, I urge all parties concerned to immediately stop the discussions,’’ he added.

The remains of Altantuya, a 28-year-old Mongolian model, were found at Puncak Alam, near Shah Alam, on Nov 6.

***** There have been so many cases before this one, and equally high profile, which people have discussed in the mass media as well as the blogs with no such caution. Why then suddenly is the A-G going out on a limb to prevent public discourse only on this particular murder case? Incidentally
Karpal Singh MP had yesterday openly demanded in Parliament that Deputy Prime Minister Najib come forward and explain his role in the whole sordid affair. Is the A-G feeling uneasy and becoming rattled because Najib's name is being increasingly bandied about? That sinister motives and devious plots are being perhaps unfairly attached to his name? Apart from that, I can't think of another reason for the A-G's new found zeal for suppressing public discussion.

Sounds like "A"lways "G"one (AG). Or like "la tuk kung" (shrine at construction sites or under pokok-pokok), jaga who goes in and what or who goes out! What should go in and what should be forgotten.....like the MCA Youth chair-throwing incident....No Case!! Hell-keeper and listen only to the Hades King. Same gang-ma!! Whatever, another :"Kwai Wong". Anyway, we can whisper in the toilet, chat in the bedroom, gossip inside the lonely jungle. maybe the government should "privatise" our mouths for a handsome fee. Stupidity is no requisite for any top post.
