Original posting: As far as investigative reporting goes, Arnaud Dubus' The Altantuya Sharibuu's Case: How and Why she was Killed published by French daily Liberation is , I must say, quite uninspiring.
Compare Mr Dubus' effort with the Statutory Declarations made by blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin h e r e and private eye P. Subramaniam h e r e.
Admit it. We got far more sordid details from our heroes' statutory declarations.
In RPK's statutory declaration made in June last year, for example, we were told that Rosmah Mansor, the Deputy Prime Minister's wife, was there in person to witness (or supervise?) the blowing up of Altantuya!
In P. Balasubramaniam's statutory declaration in July last year, we were expected to believe that Altantuya was "susceptible to anal intercourse"!
Read the English translation of Mr Dubus' report in Malaysiakini [here] and Malaysia Today [here] or the BM's version in Anwar Ibrahim's blog here.
Perhaps the book will be more explosive?
