This is the Statutory Declaration of Raja Petra which is spinning big time by our mainstream papers. So now you know how we have been taken for wild rides by our mainstream media over the years.

Raja Petra’s purpose for doing the Statutory Declaration was to get the cops to gather information from those people mentioned in the SD in regards to the murder of Altantuya Shaaribuu.

Sad but true, there was no investigation by the police and none of those people mentioned in the SD were questioned.

Where is the truth, if the cops didn’t do a proper investigation over this Statutory Declaration?

See above, Raja Petra’s doctored interview with TV3 which is the hottest news in Malaysia overtaking the Sarawak state elections, which is centered on his SD, in which he claimed he was reliably informed by his informer that Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor was at the scene of the crime, witnessing the blasting of Altantuya’s body. In this interview, Raja Petra claims that he not yet believe the story as it sounds incredible and he wants the authorities to investigate.

Raja Petra is a MASTER STRATEGIST, he has resurrected the Altantuya story all over again. What a move!

And hear from the man himself what he has to say about the whole thing, about allowing himself to be taken for spin by TV3 and the Malaysian mainstream papers:

Q1: Why make the revelation now, why didn’t you correct the media reports soon after your SD came out two years ago?

Actually the SD was signed 3 years ago, not 2 years ago. And it was published the very next day and I was arrested and charged almost immediately.

I have been writing article upon article over the last 3 years saying that I did not make any allegation about Rosmah Mansor and the two Lt Kols husband and wife. What I said was that an informer had informed me about the matter. By the way, have you read my SD yet? I would suspect not, as many who comment do so without reading it. That is why you said 2 years instead of 3. Or else you would have known it was signed in June 2008.

Anyway, is it my job to correct what the mainstream media intentionally distorts? And did anyone from the mainstream media talk to me? Most of the mainstream media actually covered my trials but still they misreported the whole thing.

Are you saying I am to blame for the misdeeds and malicious acts of others? Their job is to whack me and that is what they did. Now, after 3 years of getting whacked, I am whacking back. Is this not my right?

Anyway, the interview was done 2 months ago, not now. People ask me why now, just before the Sarawak elections?

2 months ago there was no confirmation of the Sarawak elections. So when do I do it? After the Sarawak elections? Then, after the Sarawak elections, people will say why now, just before the 13th GE? So I wait until after the 13th GE and people will still ask, why now, just before a by-election?

So when should I do it? After Malaysia bans elections?

Q2: Can you comment on Din Merican’s denial that he was involved in the attempt to discredit Rosmah and Najib?

Did I say he was involved? I just asked him to check with Anwar Ibrahim the background of Lt Kol Azmi Zainal Abidin and that was what he did. And he admitted this in his Blog posting. So what is the issue? Why accuse me of something I did not do?

Q3: Aside from your Statutory Declaration, do you have any proof of the involvement of the people you mentioned in the attempt to discredit Najib and Rosmah?

What do you mean by proof? Video recordings of them in towels in a hotel room? Define ‘proof’. Anwar was convicted and sentenced to 15 years jail in 1999 based on testimony. Testimony is proof and that was good enough to sentence Anwar to 15 years jail. My testimony is even better. It is in the form of an SD.

Q4: Now talks on the ground is that your sudden revelation is because you want to return to Malaysia. Your comment?

Talks on the ground is that Najib was caught kalwat in a Port Dickson hotel room. Do you want to ask Najib this? Who cares about talks on the ground? If the government says I am welcome back in Malaysia and I tell the government to go to hell because I love it in the country of my birth what then are you going to say?

And what ‘sudden revelation’? Have you not heard what I said? I have been repeating this again and again over the last 3 years. What’s so sudden about saying the same thing over 3 years? You mean I kept silent the last 3 years and only today I am talking?

Q5: You have also been accused of shifting attention from the Sarawak election with your latest allegation. Your thoughts.

Shifting attention? You really must improve your communication skills because I don’t understand what you mean. I have also been accused of going to church every Sunday and that my wife and I have left Islam to become Catholics.

Do you really think I care what they say? My interview was done before the announcement of the Sarawak elections. Maybe they held the Sarawak elections to shift attention from my interview since my interview came first.

Q6: Where does your loyalty lie now that you have turned the tables against Anwar and the opposition front?

You must be smoking something. Let me know what it is so that I can get some. My loyalty from Day One was always with the rakyat: dulu, kini dan selama-lamanya. Now, which part of the word rakyat don’t you understand?

    RPK was informed by someone then he went on making a SD to initiate an investigation by the police. RPK has a lot of informers that reports to him and his duty is to publicize them so the people will demand explanations over the matters brought up by him.

    RPK never saw it with his own eyes. He did not see Rosmah at the scene with his very own eyes; someone told him. And this someone is not ordinary, he has access to vital clues, he was the one who might have witnessed it.

    People has to be reminded again and again that RPK never does a U-turn. He was right by stating that he did not say it, the informer did and he reported it!

    The two police officers convicted of killing Altantuya confessed in court that they were paid lots of money for the job. WHO offered them the money? The trial judge succeeded in covering up the identity of this black hand.

    This is RPK’s way of bringing the issue into the public domain. Have the issue be seen, heard & discussed in every home, both urban & rural. The bonus is that MSM will also comment on it.

    I can understand his frustration that only the ‘converted’ can read about the issues in the internet, while the rest of the country remain blissfully unaware simply because the issue is completely blacked out by MSM, both newspapers & TV.

    Here is using the media to convey a message. Never mind the message is skewed, so long as the issue reaches the public. Hopefully, the people will then be keen to seek the truth and not simply believe MSM’s version of the truth.

    Certainly, the issue is not settled. RPK is simply stirring the pot, again, so that the stink continue to permeate …….. now, into the public domain.

    So classic. The police are still playing chess with the rakyat. They must wait for someone to make a police report whilst giving them time to think of the next move. A Statutory Declaration is not enough! Real classic.

    SUN TZU: ” In the conduct of war, one must not rely on the enemy’s failure to come BUT on one’s readiness to engage him. One must not rely on the enemy’s failure to attack BUT on one’s ability to build an invincible defence”……………………RPK is certainly on the right track. RPK is truly a master strategist with this brilliant move.

    It seems to me that RPK is waging a psychological warfare to distract and confuse Najib and his merry men from focusing their full attention on their campaigning in Sarawak!!!

    (The Malay Mail) – Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said investigations into claims made by renegade blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin will be instituted only if there was a police report lodged on the issue.

    Raja Petra had asked for police to re-launch their investigation into his statutory declaration made on June 18, 2008 to ‘find the truth” about murder of Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu in 2007.

    “So far no one has lodged a police report on this issue and if there is, we will investigate. First, we will have view what Raja Petra’s said his latest statement and his statutory declaration to verify if he had committed an offence,” Ismail said. “We have to get solid facts and proof before we can take any action.”

    Ismail said this after witnessing the handing over ceremony of outgoing Deputy-Inspector General of Police Datuk Hussin Ismail who retired from the force today. Hussin was replaced by Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar who was former Internal Security and Public Order department director.

    On TV3’s Buletin Utama last night (Wednesday night) Raja Petra claimed the information regarding the murder was received from several individuals, who wanted to put pressure and prevent then Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from assuming the nation’s top post.

    In a posting this morning, the founder and editor of Malaysia Today dismissed speculations on the internet that he was not the one who appeared on TV3’s Buletin Utama and made it clear it was no ‘look-a-like’.

    On his posting, Raja Petra wrote: “Maybe I need that storm so the story of my statutory declaration can be brought back to focus and corrected.”

    He said all these years, mainstream media and pro-UMNO blogs and websites called him a ‘liar’ for signing an SD which linked Najib with the murder of the Mongolian model in 2007.

    Raja Petra said he made an allegation about Lt Kol Azmi Zainal Abidin, a military officer, whom he claimed had a confidential report regarding Altantuya’s demise at the time she was murdered. The confidential military report, including its entire file, Raja Petra wrote, apparently no longer exists.

    One of the individuals alleged to be involved in the practice, blogger Din Merican, had written a statement saying there was no basis for Raja Petra linking him in the matter, but did not deny Raja Petra called him to seek clarification from opposition leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, regarding reliability of a military officer.

    Dear Pete,
    I think you are brilliant man. You achieved somethings in your interview with Tv3.

    1. You proved that the police are liars when they said the couldn’t find you.
    2. You got some payback on the guys that con you in to making the SD.
    3.The guys who force you to make the SD will now have to defend themselves.

    I still believe in you Pete. Hang in there, mate
