For whatever its worth (31)

I just got word that the murder trial of Altantuya Shariibu has been fixed for March 10th 2008 to be heard at Shah Alam High Court before Justice KN Segara.

Meanwhile political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda was whisked away to prison after his RM1million bail was not extended. Razak is charged in abetting 2 other accused in the high profile murder.

I hope the court shall find them all innocent if they had not committed the alleged offence, but if they do, then the severest punishment have to be imposed upon them without an inkling of special treatment whatsoever.

Already people are questioning why Razak was freed on bail in the first place. Hopefully the court shall ensure that everybody be treated equally in its eyes. Even the Kelantan MBs son was handcuffed when he was detained under the ISA, a law that blatantly denies justice. Therefore in Razaks case we hope that despite being linked to people upstairs, no VIP treatment be accorded to him so long as he stands as an accused in this trial.

Justice must not only be done it must also be seen to be done
