Sleepless Days (SD)

SD mostly meant stamp duty to me in the past but in a week when the SAPP (Sabah Progressive Party) announced its intended VNC (Vote of No Confidence) against the PM (Prime Minister or Preacher Man; your preference), PL (Pak Lah), the abbreviation, "SD" has popped up so often on the www, (glaringly not) in the MSM (mainstream media), KK (kedai kopis), in KL (Kuala Lumpur) or along the KL (kaki lima) all because RPK (Raja Petra Kamarudin) made a SD (statutory declaration) regarding the now infamous C-4 (Composition 4). He seems bent on sending some people to hell!

Before we consider the exact contents of RPK's SD (which was more explosive than the C-4 in question) perhaps we should know what a statutory declaration is; including the consequences of making a false one. In Malaysia we have the Statutory Declarations Act 1960 as follows:


Act 13


An Act to provide for the making (and taking) of statutory declarations
and for purposes connected with it and incidental to it.

[Peninsular Malaysia—1 June 1961, L.N. 154/1961; Sabah and Sarawak*—1 January 1969, P.U. 488/1968]

Short title
1. This Act may be cited as the Statutory Declarations Act 1960.

Form of declaration
2. It shall be lawful for any Sessions Court Judge, Magistrate,
or Commissioner for Oaths or, subject to section 4 of the Notaries
Public Act 1959 [Act 115], any notary public appointed under the
Notaries Public Act 1959, to take and receive the declaration of
any person voluntarily making the same in Malay or English in the
form in the Schedule.

False declaration punishable under Penal Code
3. Declarations made by virtue of the provisions of this Act
shall be deemed to be such declarations as are referred to in
sections 199 and 200 of the Penal Code [Act 574].

4. A person making any declaration by virtue of the provisions
of this Act shall pay to the officer or Commissioner taking the
same such fees as the Minister may from time to time by
notification in the Gazette prescribe.

References in Sabah and Sarawak federal laws to repealed

5. Any reference in any federal law in force in Sabah to the
Statutory Declarations Ordinance of Sabah [Cap. 138] and any
reference in any federal law in force in Sarawak to the Statutory
Declarations Ordinance of Sarawak [Cap. 52] or to the Statutory
Declarations Act 1835 [5 & 6 Wm. IV, C. 62], of the United
Kingdom, shall be deemed to be a reference to this Act.

The thingy on false declaration is I suppose the main consideration here. Persons making false declarations are the Penal Code and the defining sections are as below:

Section 199.
False statement made in any declaration which is by law receivable as evidence. Whoever, in any declaration made or subscribed by him, which declaration any Court, or any public servant or other person, is bound or authorised by law to receive as evidence of any fact, makes any statement which is false, and which he either knows or believes to be false or does not believe to be true, touching any point material to the object for which the declaration is made or used, shall be punished in the same manner as if he gave false evidence.

Section 200.
Using as true any such declaration known to be false. Whoever corruptly uses or attempts to use as true any such declaration knowing the same to be false in any material point, shall be punished in the same manner as if he gave false evidence.

Obviously, it is a criminal offense to make false statutory declarations not to mention the civil suits that may follow. Surely knowing this, RPK still went ahead and made the following


I, RAJA PETRA BIN RAJA KAMARUDIN (IC No: 500927-71-5257), a Malaysian citizen of legal age residing at No. 5, Jalan BRP 5/5, BuKit Rahman Putra, 47000 Sungai Buloh, Selangor Darul Ehsan, do solemnly and sincerely affirm and say as follows:-

1. I have been reliably informed that between about 10 p.m. on 19th October 2006 and early hours of the following day, the night Altantuya Shaariibuu was murdered, three (3) other people were also present at the scene of the crime;

(a) Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak

(b) Acting Colonel Aziz Buyong (then Lt. Col.) a C4 expert

(c) Acting Colonel Aziz’s wife, Norhayati (one of Rosmah’s ADC)

2. My informer states that Acting Colonel Aziz Buyong was the person who placed the C4 on various parts of Altantuya’s body while being witnessed by Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor and Norhayati.

3. I make this Statutory Declaration because I have been reliably informed about the involvement of these three people who have thus far not been implicated in the murder nor called as witnesses by the prosecution in the on going trial at the Shah Alam High Court. I also make this Statutory Declaration because I am aware that it is a crime not to reveal evidence that may help the police in its investigation of the crime.

4. I have further been reliably informed that Prime Minister, Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has received a written report from the Military Intelligence confirming what I have revealed above and that the report was subsequently handed over to his son-in-law, Khairy Jamaluddin, for safe-keeping.

5. I have also been reliably informed that one of the Rulers has been briefed about this matter and His Highness is fully aware of what I have revealed above.

6. I have knowledge of who has informed me of this matter plus I have knowledge of the Ruler who has been briefed and is aware of the matter but I have agreed that I shall not reveal this information other than mention that the Prime Minister and his son-in-law have been handed a written report confirming what I have revealed.

7. The purpose of this Statutory Declaration is to urge all these parties who have been duly informed and have knowledge of this matter to come forward to reveal the truth so that the police are able to conduct a proper and thorough investigation into the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu.

And I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing the same to be true and by virtue of the provisions of the Statutory Declaration Act, 1960.

Before me,

I have always admired RPK for his fighting style although I do not always agree with some of the shit that he writes. Balls and brains he definitely has and this latest thrust in his efforts to increase the population of Hell not only ups the ante, it hints of a bigger agenda being played out that will change the political landscape of the country.

This SD would likely force the hands of our two lovey dovey top two who seem to be so committed to each other. It looks as though the time-line has been compressed.

Many questions come to mind about the actors in this tragic play:

* Did he make the SD because he has concrete evidence?
* Is he merely trying to make us think he has concrete evidence?
* He has already said he does not believe in making police reports so what's next?

Razak Baginda
* Is he RPK's source?

Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor
* Having denied her involvement so vehemently in public and if RPK's SD is wrong then she actually has RPK exactly where she would want him; his crown jewels exposed to be cut off anytime. So where's the knife?
* Is she shitting bricks?

Acting Colonel Aziz Buyong
* Who are you?
* What's an acting colonel? A full colonel in waiting or pelakon?
* Does his alleged presence at the crime scene close the loop on speculated involvement of the military or confirm that it was a police-military joint ops against a dangerous foreign enemy force of one?

* Is she RPK's source?

Dato Seri Najib Razak
* Decisions being made for him again?
* Is he shitting bricks?

* If the RPK SD is true, withholding the Military Intelligence report would mean complicity wouldn't it?
* Are they shitting bricks?

The Police/Military
* This is khidmat untuk negara right?

Mainstream Media
* Why the deafening silence?

The AG Chambers/Judiciary
* In light of RPK's SD and his To Hell Campaign, the way the Altantuya murder trial is being conducted (against the background of the so-called judiciary reform efforts by the government), do we conclude that judiciary independence is just an illusion?
* AG Chambers; only 3 people involved?
*In view of RPK's coming sedition trial is this sub judice?

Questions, questions, questions. The real answers are already there but which version will Joe Public get? Yes, these are sleepless days indeed for some. To the guilty, these sleepless nightmare days are already hellish and RPK has actually succeeded in his mission.
