On 02 April 2009, Malaysiakini published Prayers for Altantuya in which it reported that PKR politicians, specifically Perak PKR state representatives Tai Sing Ng (Kuala Sepetang) and Chang Lih Kang (Teja), held a mini Chinese 'Cheng Beng' ritual of commemorating Altantuyaa's departed soul.
Very touching but was it really for Altantuyaa?
Many would see this as a noble gesture on the part of the opposition politicians, who vehemently denied that it was a publicity stunt.
However, it would be difficult to deny that there was no political motives whatsoever given the fact that a by-election would take place in the neighbourhood next Tuesday.
Poor Altantuyaa, not even allowed to rest in peace.
A week and a half later, on 18 April 2008, Malaysiakini reported in its Activists may be charged over Altantuya 'hearse' that:
Eight PKR Youth members may be charged in court next Tuesday over the display a number of photographs and an effigy of slain Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu on their cars.
The eight - from Perak, Terengganu and Sarawak - were arrested on April 7, which was polling day, when their cars were making the rounds in the Bukit Gantang parliamentary constituency. One of the cars had a effigy of a mock coffin tied to the roof, plastered with pictures of Altantuya, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and his wife, Rosmah Mansor.
Then there was Tian Chua's creative and highly talented photo-shopped 'Paris dinner for three' photo.
Poor Altantuyaa, but I really marvel at PKR's relentless effort in its G.A.N [Gerakan Anti Najib] campaign which incidentally started when Najib was still the DPM and occupying someone's (rightful?) position wakakaka. G.A.N was to remove Najib from impeding someone.
In fact, if I recall correctly, that a certain someone even launched a court case to get back his old/previous DPM appointment.
But alas, the spoilsport Court ruled against his case, and thus denied him a victorious return to UMNO - tsk, tsk, sayang aje. I had posted this on 08 March 2010 in Federal Court ruling - black yesterday, white today.
In case you can't recall that court case, I wrote about the court declaring Anwar's dismissal as DPM is lawful because according to our marvellous judiciary, the king, as a constitutional monarch, was required to act in accordance with the advice of the prime minister, ...
… while a mere month prior to this (yes, just around 30 days), the very same three judges who were also on the appeals bench to hear Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin’s appeal against the unconstitutional sacking of him as the MB of Perak ..... by the Sultan of Perak, ruled that it was not necessary for a vote of confidence to be done in the state assembly as the Sultan can conduct his own inquiry to determine which party or coalition has the majority. [...]
Either they were of a most forgetful nature (and to f* with stare decisis) or we could quote George Orwell who wrote in Animal Farm (Chapter 2, pg 11), that “Squealer could turn black into white” wakakaka.
Anyway, apart from our most remarkable judiciary, Anwar did sue to get back into UMNO and specifically his old party appointment of him as the DPM. But alas, he failed and thus Najib was safe, at least for a while.
But lamentably, today G.A.N has suffered a most severe setback when we read (via Malaysia-Today) Free Malaysia Today's French probe: Altantuya never entered France.
But the fighting spirit of PKR and G.A.N supporters have not diminished an iota. I saw this in the comments section in Malaysia-Today which dismissed the findings of the French police investigation as per the following:
