Raja Petra Kamarudin is still under detention but his campaign to link Najib to Altantuya's murder has just intensified today.
Malaysia Today has reported an exchange of text messages / SMS between Najib and Shafee Abdullah, the prominent lawyer who represented Abdul Razak Baginda before he was charged with abetting two police officers in the murder of the model.
The SMS exchange (according to Malaysia Today), that went on from Nov 8 to Dec 2, 2006 included some of these conversations:
Shafee to Najib Date: 10/11/2006 15:19:40
--> Dato Seri, Negotiating for conditional release.If not police need 2 or 3 more days extention.I suspect its an exercise in public relation as they do not want public to think a VIP was given an easier time.Being a vip under these conditions is a liability.Otherwise we are on track according to plan. Salam, Shafee
Najib to Shafee Date: 10/11/2006 15:27:01
--> Thanks, he is very stressful according to his wife n would be a huge help if he could get a conditional release latest by sun.
