Father of Mongolian Altantuya Shaaribuu has renewed his call to reopen investigations into his daughter’s murder 13 years ago after her convicted killer implicated former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

“It is an opportunity for the Malaysian authorities to clear its name at the international level relating to the murder case,” Shaaribuu was quoted as saying in an emailed statement through his lawyer Munkhsaruul Mijiddorj.

Mijiddorj reportedly said Setev is in hospital and would issue a more detailed statement in the next few days.

Another lawyer, acting for the Mongolian’s family, Ramkarpal Singh, as well as DAP lawmaker Lim Kit Siang have both called for fresh inquiries into the case that was deemed done and dusted.

Meanwhile, Najib also wants the police to reinvestigate Altantuya’s murder case, according to his lawyer.

His attorney, Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, told this to reporters today in the wake of a statutory declaration (SD) by former police officer Azilah Hadri, who is now accusing Najib of pulling the strings in the murder.

He claimed that Azilah, who is on death row for the 2006 murder, was being used by some people in an attempt to put Najib behind bars.

“Well, I hope they reinvestigate. My client (Najib) wants them to reinvestigate. For one purpose – we want to know who put Azilah in this mode of perjury. Who is behind this perjury?

“Because we don’t think it is Azilah alone. Azilah we understand is desperate. But who is behind Azilah in trying to put my client…(sic),” he said when met at the Palace of Justice this morning.
