Sunday 1 July 2007: The DPM's press secretary said last night Najib Razak will not issue any statement with regards to a claim by a witness about a photograph that was not even produced in court. Tengku Sarifuddin Ahmad said it would prejudice the on-going trial if the DPM were to issue a statement. In the past, Najib has said he had never met and known Altantuya, and that statement stands.
The Bernama exclusive came in last night, here.
Our national news agency has not come up with the story. AP has it here [Najib Razak photographed with Mongolian victim, court told] a couple of hours ago, though.
NO such picture was produced in court, though.
Witness' account. The DPM's name cropped up for the first time today. I was told that one of the witnesses spoke of having seen a photograph of Altantuya having a meal with the accused, Razak Baginda, and the DPM.
There will be updates here late but Bernama should have the story up by now.
