KUALA LUMPUR, June 28 — Action may be taken against blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin if the Attorney-General finds that there are elements of slander against the government in a statutory declaration he made on June 18.
Federal CID director Datuk Bakri Zinin said the allegations made by the editor of the Malaysia Today website in the declaration were very serious.
“Investigations are ongoing and we have recorded several statements except from one person. We are waiting to take further action,” he said yesterday. He declined to reveal who that person was.
So far, among those whose statements have been taken are Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, the wife of Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, and Umno Youth deputy chief and Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin.
In the declaration filed in the High Court here, Raja Petra named three individuals, including Rosmah, as being present at the scene where Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu was murdered in 2006.
He (Raja Petra) further claimed that Khairy had in his possession a military intelligence report about the presence of Rosmah, bomb expert Col Aziz Buyong and his wife Norhayati, who is an aide to Rosmah, at the place where Altantuya’s body was blown up with explosives in Puncak Alam, Shah Alam in October 2006.
In another development, Bakri said police were looking for four men to assist them on several cases of kidnapping for ransom involving international syndicates.
They are Chin Kam Onn, 38, last address No. 8, USJ 20/1C, Subang Jaya, Selangor; Wong Chee Ming, 35, last address No. 6885, Jalan Sri Putri 12/3, Taman Sri Putri, Kulai, Johor; Oo Chee Hwa, 34, No. 61, last known addresses Kampung Baru Triang, Temerloh and No. 10, Jalan Triang 7, Taman Triang Maju, Triang, Pahang; and Suresh Kumar Ramanmuthi, 38, last know addresses No. 19, Jalan 49, Selayang Baru, Batu Caves and No. 405, Lot 6279, Jalan Kota Raja, Kampung Jawa, Klang, Selangor.
