KUALA LUMPUR: The extradition of Sirul Azhar Umar, who was convicted and sentenced to death for murdering Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu, will be discussed with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, says Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

“If Malaysia’s mandatory death sentence (for murder) can be changed, he (Sirul) can return,” she said when asked to comment on Sirul’s political asylum bid that was rejected by an Australian court on Monday.
