Altantuya’s father continues to pursue legal recourse

SHAH ALAM: The leave application by the father of murdered Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu to quash the prosecution’s decision not to appeal against the acquittal of political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda will be mentioned at a High Court here on July 8.

The matter will be called before a deputy registrar to ensure that parties had filed all required documents for the hearing proper.

On Tuesday, Judicial Commissioner Justice Noraini Abdul Rahman ordered Altantuya’s father, Dr Shaariibuu Setev, to file submissions-in-reply to both respondents’ papers.

Setev had on Dec 24 last year filed an application for judicial review to quash the Attorney-General’s decision not to appeal against Razak’s acquittal.

He had named the Attorney-General and Razak as respondents in his application.

High Court judge Justice Mohd Zaki Md Yasin acquitted and discharged Razak, 49, without calling for his defence on Oct 31 for a charge of abetting in the murder of the translator.

Lead prosecutor Tun Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah announced two weeks later that the prosecution would not appeal against the acquittal as the Shah Alam High Court, which acquitted Razak, had made a finding of fact in its decision.
