KUALA LUMPUR: Johari Hadri, the brother of C/Insp Azilah, and Altantuya’s father, Dr Shaariibuu Setev, were among those who attended the court proceedings yesterday.
While Abdul Razak Baginda and his family were relieved that he was released on a court bond, Johari, who was standing at the doorway of the packed courtroom, uttered something in anger the moment the bond was allowed.
“What about the other two in Shah Alam? Are they going to get bail?” he said, referring to his brother and Kpl Sirul Azhar Umar.
Dr Shaariibuu, who was present in court in an attempt to secure the remains of his daughter, was given a chance to address the court after DPP Salehuddin Saidin said the police still needed the bone fragments for another month for their investigations.
After conveying his thanks and gratitude through a translator to various parties who had helped as well as those who shared his grief, Dr Shaariibuu said he understood and respected police procedure and added that he was willing to wait.
However, what he said next was a bit problematic as Justice Abdul Kadir had to quickly interject to ask the translator not to translate what was said.
The female translator had quoted Dr Shaariibuu as saying, “If a neighbour’s dog is barking, nobody shoots to kill the dog ...” before she was cut off.
After the proceedings, Dr Shaariibuu told reporters that he was not satisfied with yesterday’s outcome, saying all that the lawyers spoke about was Razak, his reputation and who he was.
“I hope justice will be served,” he said, adding that he would not hesitate to bring the matter to the international arena if he found the trial was not fair.
