PETALING JAYA: The accused in the Altantuya murder case, Sirul Azhar Umar, swore in God’s name that Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak was “no way involved” in the murder of the Mongolian national in 2006.
In a 55-second video, the former police commando is seen sitting down with his hands clasped together and assured that he was never taught to slander a person.
“I understand the motivation of certain parties with interests to sabotage someone,” said Sirul.
“I promise by God, that the Malaysian Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, is in no way involved in this case,” he said.
This is the third video of Sirul talking about the murder case.
In his first video, he said parties with vested interests were attempting to sabotage somebody, but did not mention a name.
The second video showed him saying that “the woman”, a reference to Altantuya Shaariibuu, was not pregnant.
On Jan 13 last year, the Federal Court sentenced Sirul and Special Action Unit personnel Azilah Hadri to death for the 2006 murder.
