A Barbaric Execution
The following quotations made by DSP (Deputy Superintendent of police) Muhammad Koey Abdullah, are taken from Bernama in the ongoing Altantuya murder trial.
It would be the 65th day of the trial of the two police personnel, Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri, 31 and Corporal Sirul Azhar, 36 of the Special Action Unit. They are charged with murdering Atantuya, 28, between 10 p.m. on October 19 last year and 1 a.m. the following day in a secondary jungle in Bukit Raja in Malaysia.
A prominent political analyst, Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda, 47 is charged with abetting them.
The victim, Altantuya Sharariibuu, a Mongolian translator was allegedly murdered by the Malaysian elite police force specialists with C-4 explosives.
"I discussed it with with Dr. Mohammad Shah Mahmood (a pathologist) at the scene. He told me that he found the largest skull piece about the same size of of a 50-sen (cent) coin; hair blown off to the south-east. So, an explosive substance had been placed on the hairless part of the head, probably the forehead or face, mouth and so on.
As the upper part of the spine column was intact, I assumed there was an explosive substance placed at the upper limbs. And no leg bone was found; so it was possible that an explosive was placed on the lower abdomen".
"Skull fragments, bones, hair and spinal column were found. If a large quantity (of explosive) had been used, probably no bones would be found".
"The discovery of RDX-a secondary high-powered explosive substance (indicates PE may be used in the murder incident)". RDX can be found in PE of PP01 and PE-N12B1 types".
"In my opinion it was a simple electric firing command".
