KUALA LUMPUR: Perkasa has urged the government to investigate claims by veteran journalist and businessman Kalimullah Hassan that the murder of Mongolian translator Altantuya Shaariibuu using a C4 bomb in 2006 involved Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.

Perkasa supreme council member Zahid Mat Arip said “the claims by Kalimullah were published in the newsportal The Malaysian Insider”.

“The allegations are malicious lies and aimed at toppling Najib.”

“Kalimullah had published the news before the police began investigations into the case which had tarnished Najib’s image.

‘I am convinced that he (Kalimullah) had an agenda to topple Najib who at that time was the Defence Minister,” he told FMT.

He said the “investigation against Kalimullah must be carried out based on the articles which were published.”

He said the articles were aimed at confusing the people and discrediting the credibility of a national leader.

According to him, Kalimullah had acted in this manner “to aid another party” who wished to divert public attention. [Free Malaysia Today]
