KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 – Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should reopen the murder case of Altantuya Shariibuu, said Mongolia’s President Khaltmaagiin Battulga.
“I sincerely hope that you will pay attention to bringing justice, implementing court decisions and settling the civil suit of the family of the victim in a fair manner to invigorate the atmosphere in the bilateral relations between our two countries,” Battulga said in a letter to Dr Mahathir on Wednesday (May 16).
“As the President of Mongolia, I pay special attention to the grave crime committed in Malaysia on Oct 18, 2006 – the murder of Ms Shariibuu Altantuya, a Mongolian national and a mother of two children,” he added.
The letter was reproduced on the official website of the president’s office.
“I am confident that Your Excellency will extend valuable support in restoring and activating the traditionally friendly relations between Mongolia and Malaysia as well as strengthening the people-to-people ties,” he said.
