A date has now been fixed for a hearing of an application to review his case by ex police officer Azilah who was convicted of murdering Mongolian national Altantuya.
Now for the surprise bit. No it is not surprising that the application has been filed. What IS surprising is that ex PM Najib, himself the object of numerous prosecutions for dishonesty offences, should be seeking to make himself a party to a review of a murder conviction when he has all along strenuously denied any involvement in the matter. Should he succeed in joining these proceedings it will be interesting to hear why he is in any way involved.
Murder, as the saying has it, will out and this one certainly did in a slew of proceedings which shed little light on what really happened. The review to which the Federal Court has consented will provide an opportunity to go deeper into the case. Why for example, a police officer should murder and destroy the remains of a person totally unknown to him. He explains that in detail and it will be interesting to see the outcome of the Apex court hearing.
