Is The Ghost Of Altantuya Still Haunting Us?

The murder of Altantuya is one case that just refuses to go away. Like the case also of Teoh Beng Hock?

Just when we thought that the Federal Court's final decision on the case that upheld the conviction of the two special police personnel for the murder of the Mongolian beauty would draw the curtain on the case, one of the two convicts absconded to the Land Down Under.

How Sirul managed to do so while still awaiting the apex court's decision on a capital offence
is perhaps a peculiarly Bolehland phenomenon. Just like how there was no immigration record of the murdered Mongolian beauty's entry into the country.

Perhaps the restless spirit of Altantuya is still haunting us, seeking for ultimate truth and closure.

For, though Bolehlanders aren't exactly disputing the apex court's conviction of the two police personnel, they are wondering what motive the policemen had for so ruthlessly killing the Mongolian beauty who was not known to them.

Rightly or wrongly, this has only led to speculation that someone or some persons had the motive to want to do away with the Mongolian beauty for one reason or another, and that it may all lead up to the people holding the reins of power.

That, of course, is a scary prospect and might well explain why the government of the day is scrambling hard (before any beans get spilled?) to extradite Sirul from the Land Down Under, allegedly even to the extent of being willing to consider commuting the death sentence on Sirul in order to do so.

How they plan to commute the death sentence on Sirul is altogether a different thing. The only way seems to be to seek a royal pardon for Sirul. But it won't do for the government of the day or the Attorney General (AG) to seek a royal pardon on the convict's behalf, would it?

This has not, however, allegedly deterred a smart alec from claiming that the AG has the power to commute a death sentence.

If indeed the AG has such a magical power, it is interesting to know under what law the AG is conferred the privilege.

But if indeed the AG has the power to commute a death sentence, wouldn't that be anathema to our system of justice - for then, in effect, wouldn't the AG be BOTH the prosecutor and judge?

Of course, the government of the day could always attempt to pass a law doing away with the death sentence altogether and making it retrospective to cover Sirul's case. But people would be wondering why just for the Sirul's instance, the government would altogether abolish the death sentence across the board.

The last would only reinforce Bolehlanders' suspicion that there is something more than meets the eye in the despicable murder of Altantuya.

So, it does seem that the Bolehland government is caught in a bind.

But more probably, it is the restless ghost of Altantuya that won't go away in peace until the ultimate truth comes to light.

Until then, perhaps even the King of Hades himself might be awaiting a just resolution to balance and close the book of life and death in the nether world in the Mongolian beauty's case.

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
