Altantuya's father is unhappy with the government

C'mon Malaysia, where is the spirit of MALAYSIA BOLEH?. We are so proud that we managed to scale the tallest mountain in the world, but we can't even be fully prepared for a court case. I wonder will there be another shocking revelation this coming Monday?.

SHAH ALAM, June 14 (Bernama) -- "Enough is enough! Please don't postpone my daughter's murder trial again. I have been traumatised enough."

This was the heart-rending appeal of Dr Shaariibuu Setev, the distraught father of the Mongolian model whose murder trial was postponed when it came up for hearing on June 4.

The murder trial of Altantuya Shaariibuu has been fixed for Monday at the Shah Alam High Court.

Shaariibuu, Director of the Centre of Information and Education at the National University of Mongolia, said: "Everyone in Mongolia, including the prime minister, is eagerly waiting for the trial to start.

"I want the relevant authorities to give me a guarantee that there will be no more postponements, even if triggered by the trivial excuse.

"The explanation given by the Attorney-General (for postponement of the trial) did not satisfy me, in the least. I am quite anxious what might transpire on Monday," he said, adding that his two nieces and a friend of Altantuya, who are witnesses in the high-profile trial, might return to Mongolia in the event of a second postponement.

Shaariibuu, 57, was speaking in a packed press conference at a five-star hotel here today. He was assisted by a Mongolian translator, Bayar Puverdorj.

and report from MalaysiaKini:
Shaariibuu said the Malaysian government had ignored letters from the Mongolian government pleading for transparency in the trial, and also alleged he was being censored by Malaysia's media.

"If the trial is again postponed, it will be proved it is really a political issue," he said.

"She was murdered because she knows too much," Shaariibuu said, although he declined to elaborate.

Analysts view the High Court trial as a key test of Malaysia's judicial and political integrity because of Abdul Razak's connections to the government.
