• On March 14, 1995, Horinek and his wife , Bonnie went out for drinks,
and then went home. Later that evening, a distraught Horinek called
911, saying his wife had been shot.

• From the outset, as everything pointed to suicide, the police, crime


scene techs as well as the district attorney agreed, that the victim has
indeed committed suicide. That should have been the end of the matter.

• The wife’s family refused to believe that she committed suicide and
hired a private attorney who obtained a grand jury indictment of
Horinek.

• Warren was headed for acquittal until the testimony of the prosecution’s
final witness—a blood spatter expert from Oklahoma named Tom Bevel.

- Become a mistress for DS. Najib
- DS.Najib swear in mosque that he
do not know Altantuya
Scandal with Razak Baginda

assisted him in translating Russian
documents.
• They broke up around August 2005.
• Harassed Razak Baginda for US
500000
Rosmah Mansor
• Was one of the three individuals
who were present at the crime
scene when Altantuya Sharibuu was
murdered
Sirul
- Fled to Australia
- Claimes she was not pregnant
WHAT ARE THE
MOTIVES?
The killers, Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri
(photo, far right) and Corporal Sirul Azhar
Umar (photo, middle), were members of
an elite police commando unit that
provided bodyguards for Malaysia's top
leaders, including then Defence Minister
Najib Razak, now prime minister.
The likely motive for
the murder of
Altantuya Shaariibuu
was to get rid of a
blackmailer

Former Inspector-General “Unfortunately Razak Baginda


of Police Musa Hassan was released,” he said. “People
have asked what was his
motive to kill her. If you want to
ask about the motive, the
victim herself had lodged a
police report on why she was
blackmailing him. Now that’s
the motive.
Altantuya went to a police station earlier on the day of her murder to file
a self-typed report in which, in broken English, she repeatedly expressed
fears for her life.

She wrote: A letter in her handwriting was found in


, “I’m just a normal girl trying to her hotel room after her death. In it, she
meet my lover who lied to me admitted having threatened to harm
and promised many things but Abdul Razak’s daughter, and regretted
now (he) want(s) to put me in having “bothered” and “blackmailed”
jail or kill (me). Only reason I'm him, without specifying how. But she
also wrote, “I’m (a) nice person. I can’t
here (is) because he ruined my
hurt someone but (Abdul Razak) is a
life with lies… but now (he is) powerful person, he (has) money (and)
trying to scare me and kill me… he (has) connection (to the) police
I really understand he doesn’t (and the) government… If he didn’t
love me any more… I want to promise me, I would (have) never
go back safely." She was dead come from far away to Malaysia.”
that night.
Rumour has circulated for years
that Altantuya died because she
tried to capitalise on inside
knowledge - gained as a
translator - of allegedly corrupt
negotiations for Malaysia to buy
two French-built submarines, by
blackmailing Abdul Razak for
US$500,000.
CONCLUSION
 Ms Altantuya was involved
in the negotiations for the
Malaysian government's
US$1.1 billion purchase in
2002 of French Scorpene
submarines, with Mr Abdul
Razak in charge of the
Abdul Razak Baginda
deal.
 Allegations have
simmered for eight years
that Altantuya Shaariibuu
was murdered to keep her
quiet
