Dr M mum over ‘meeting Azilah’

PUTRAJAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad kept mum when quizzed by a reporter if he had met with former police commando Azilah Hadri.

After a press conference on the Bandar Malaysia agreement signing ceremony ended yesterday, a member of the press asked: “Tun, did you meet Azilah?”

The Prime Minister merely smiled while shaking his head, before standing up to leave the venue.

The question was posed following a claim by lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah that Azilah had met several individuals, including a “VVIP”, outside Kajang Prison in February.

Azilah dropped a bombshell recently when a statutory declaration by him claimed that he had killed Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu on the orders of Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who was then deputy prime minister.
