Altantuya’s ‘real’ murderers still free, reveals Sirul


(The Malaysian Insider) – Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, who has been detained in Australia, said today he was under orders to kill Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu. But the ‘real’ murderers are still free.

In a Malaysiakini interview today, the former police commando said he was also contemplating to ‘tell all’ concerning the gruesome murder nine years ago.

“I was under orders. The important people with motive (to murder Altantuya Shaariibuu) are still free.

“It is not like I do not love the police (force) or the country, but I acted under orders,” he told Malaysiakini.

Sirul is currently detained in Australia after fleeing the death sentence in Malaysia. Despite the predicament, he said he was allowed to have access to a mobile phone and the Internet.

He told Malaysiakini that other media organisations in Australia were asking him to “tell all” on the case.

“I haven’t decided (on whether) to do the interview,” he was quoted as saying.

He was, however, sure that he would reveal everything concerning the murder should he agree to do it.

“Yes, I am seriously considering the possibility,” he told Malaysiakini.

The news portal reported that Sirul, who is being held at the Immigration and Border Protection Department facility in Sydney, was still negotiating terms with Australian TV stations.
