Najib claims Kit Siang knows he’s not linked to high profile murder cases

PETALING JAYA: Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has claimed that Lim Kit Siang's refusal to engage him over the murder cases linked to him was simply because the DAP adviser knew there was no basis to those accusations.

"What is clear is that Lim does not know how to respond to me which is why he is angry at me and does not want to prolong this issue any further.

"The one who came out with the press statement last week saying that he wanted to open a special investigation into these murder cases was Kit Siang.

"After being pressured, Kit Siang suddenly no longer wants to push for the special investigation.

"Who is the one that is actually not being rational?" he said on his Facebook page on Wednesday (Oct 10).

Najib said after he had thanked Lim for clarifying that he did not kill Teoh Beng Hock, the then aide to Selangor assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah, Lim had instead said that he refused to further engage with him and even called him "irrational".

Lim in his blog previously had said that Najib did not kill Teoh but that his administration must be held responsible for Teoh's death.

Najib added that the refusal of the Pakatan Harapan government to conduct a special investigation proves that he was not involved in the deaths of Teoh, Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu,  Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais and Arab-Malaysian Development Bank founder Hussain Ahmad Najadi.

Najib added that if the government did not want to conduct a special investigation into the cases then they should not have linked his name to those cases.

"They know if the investigation into the cases are reopened, it will show that I am not involved and have been slandered by them for years," he said.
