A lot of people are hung up with the murder of Altantuya. It is perfectly understandable. This is a huge case and to be honest, and crude, it is not everybody a person is blown up in Malaysia. To add spice to the case, it involves one of the country’s top adviser which is related to the Deputy Prime Minister. With conspiracy theorists running abound, bam!
Murder is a transgression of right and all libertarians take it seriously. Extortion, due to violation of the non-aggression axiom is another act which libertarians are typically critical of. Both of course are criminal acts and Altantuya is alleged to have committed the latter offense.
On arriving in Kuala Lumpur on Oct 8 last year, the 28-year-old Altantuya tried in vain to meet Abdul Razak who refused to see her.
In desperation, she left several notes for Abdul Razak, including a threat that his daughter would be in danger if he did not give her money. [DPP: Razak planned it. The Star. June 19 2007]
Amid the cry for justice for Altantuya, pardon me if I do not plan to express my sympathy for her. Instead, may I ask, where is justice for Abdul Razak Baginda?
Too bad that it is useless to prosecute the dead.
