Shaariibuu Setev, Altantuya’s father, arrived in Kuala Lumpur yesterday with a representative of Mongolian non-governmental organisations. The NGO representative, who wanted only to be known as Muugi, said she represented some 20 46 (see inside) child and women rights organisations in her country. Both of them would be attending the trial today (NST).

Before the duo arrived in KL, the Mongolian NGOs have issued an appeal to International organisations to step up their campaign to seek justice for Altantuya beyond Malaysian borders.

Their appeal, a copy of which I’ve received, reads like this:

Sh. Altantuya was brutally murdered using military C4 explosives by security officers of the Malaysian government on the 19th of October 2006. The security officers facing trial now were personal body guards of Malaysia Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak. Sh. Altantuya was avisitor to Malaysia. She was there to meet Najib’s political ally and a political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda. The trial has been in progress since June 2007.

Sh. Altantuya was the mother of two boys. The children have been suffering from grave social and health issues since the loss of their mother. The murder has caused serious psychological trauma and further crises for the two boys in their daily lives. The youngest son suffers from peripheral nerve paralysis and his health continues to deteriorate daily.

We ask that Malaysia and the world that is watching to please not forget that Sh. Alatantuya cared for the health and social wellbeing of her two sons as well as her extended family before her untimely death.

The wellbeing and livelihoods of these two young boys must not be forgotten and we strongly encourage that care and acknowledgement of Sh. Altantuya’s sons be taken into consideration during this trial.

We are asking those who are aware of this case to join our struggle and demand a FAIR TRIAL. We should stand together in this issue of human rights and demand that the Malaysian authorities and judiciary NOT FORGET the livelihoods of these two children that have been devastatingly affected by the murder of their mother.

As the brutal murder of the Mongolian citizen took place in Malaysia’s territory and was committed by government special security guard, orphaning two young children, we demand that the Malaysian Government provide compensation for the loss of the breadwinner to the victim’s children, including support for living and medical treatment costs for the youngest son for the duration of his lifetime, in compliance with the United Nations Declaration of Basic Principles of Justice for Victims of Crime and Abuse of Power adopted by the General Assembly Resolution No. 40/34 in 1985.

We hope and trust that YOU, as International Human Right organizations will support our struggle and demands for the right to life.

Recommended Action:

Please write to the authorities listed below. Remind them of the government’s obligation under CEDAW and Child Right Convention to ensure equal protection of the law to women and children. Urge them to find ways to ensure that the case of the murder of Sh. Altantuya in Malaysia is appropriately investigated and punished, in particular, by prosecuting all the defendants.

Please call on authorities to bring justice by prosecuting the responsible defendant and not to forget to ensure compensation for the loss of the breadwinner to the victim’s children.

Justice will be done, there is still such a thing as the universal laws. The culprits will face the music one day and it may be sooner than one can imagine!

I was just wondering what we can do to help. your post mentioned something about writing letters to ministries. Do we write our own letters, or is there a letter in circulation that we can all print, sign and send off?
Or maybe a petition we can sign?

PM Badawi should have the courage to go after the main actor using C4and not divert the Rakyats' hard earned money to compensate the victim's family! Have pity on the poor Malaysian Rakyats!!
Get the culprits to pay for the sins by sending them to "safe" Kajang cell and concurrently to compensate the victim's family on the "commission" earned!!
