KUALA LUMPUR- The father of murdered Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu will be meeting with the Prime Minister on Wednesday (June 20).
The family’s lawyer, Ramkarpal Singh confirmed that Dr Setev Shaariibuu (pic) would meet Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at 5pm in Putrajaya.
Dr Setev would be meeting Attorney General Tommy Thomas at 3pm on Tuesday (June 19) on the possibility of reopening the case.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun had said last month that the police had not found any grounds to reopen investigations into the case.
Altantuya, 28, is believed to have been shot dead before her body was blown to bits with explosives at a secondary forest near the Subang Dam in Puncak Alam, Shah Alam in 2006.
In 2009, Sirul Azhar Umar and accomplice Azilah Hadri were convicted of murdering Altantuya and were sentenced to death.
The Court of Appeal overturned their sentences in 2013 but upon the prosecution’s appeal, were upheld by the Federal Court.
Sirul fled to Australia where he was detained by the Australian Immigration after Interpol issued a red notice on him.
He has been at the detention centre since 2015, where he is hoping to get asylum.- The Star Online
