Threatening SMS, Notes, and a Letter in Altantuya Case

Counsel Wong Kian Kheong, who was representing accused Abdul Razak Baginda, had asked Burmaa Oyun-chimeg to read aloud a SMS that she had sent to private investigator P. Balasubramaniam from Hong Kong last year. She read “You sick f*****s. Listen to me carefully. I’m gonna call his wife. Already, reported to Mongolian Consul General in Malaysia, You chicken s***s are in big problem. I’ll do my best. Promise.”

Balasubramaniam reportedly received this SMS from Burmaa at 4:26pm on 21 October 2006 and forwarded it to Abdul Razak. Burmaa had sent the threatening SMS two days after Altantuya was missing.

Burmaa said that Abdul Razak had called her early 2006 as he could not reach Altantuya, who was in Mongolia at that time. Abdul Razak had told Burmaa that he had transferred money to Altantuya’s account and given her the transaction reference number. Burmaa told the court that she could not remember the transaction amount and did not know how often Abdul Razak gave her cousin money.

The prosecution then submitted two pieces of A4 paper on which Altantuya wrote her last letter before she went missing in October last year. It was written on the Hotel Malaya letterhead and found by Burmaa in Altantuya’s white Guess bag. She found it there on 20 November 2006 when she was packing her cousin’s belongings before returning to Hong Kong.

The letter was read in court as follows:

“Dear, all Malaysia goverment or police, or embassy of Mongolia, or Newspapers.”

“My name is Shaariibuu Altantuya, I came to Malaysia to see my boyfriend Mr. Razak Abdullah Baginda. He married and live with his daughter Rowena and wife and parents in Damansara heights, Jalan Setia Jaya 22.”

“His office in Jalan ampak, yes I have been visiting his house and office, because I needed to see him, yes I asked from him money, but I have reason. I’m nice person, I can’t hurt someone. But Mr A. Razak Baginda is powerfull person, he have money, he have connection in police, in government.”

“He trying to scare me, trying to kill me. He send his two indian men to follow me, one of them Suraj Kumar, he been coming to my hotel room every morning around 5.00 a.m and knocking door, trying to scare me. Another one of bodyguard said to me if i could i already (illegible) you.”

“They have been following me for 4-5 days. Even my hotel, where I staying workers know. That time I really scared, I have some problem now time, Mr. Razak Baginda promised to help me when I was Mongolia,”

“That’s the why I came to see him and for help. But he trying to kill me. And that indians told me they have connection with police so they will put me to jail. Yes, maybe I did mistake to bother him to blackmail him, but if he didn’t promise to me I would never come from far away to Malaysia.”

“Only reason I’m here is I asking help from Mr Razak. I get p.I, privite invistogetor Mr Hoh. But today he told me, that indians could kill and put down from window. And before I writed letter I’ll suicide myself, because I have no choice, he told that they have my letter’s so they kill me and says she suicide.”

The prosecution also tendered six notes, supposedly handwritten in English by Altantuya, which appeared to be threats and blackmail against Abdul Razak. Some of the notes read as follows:

“Razak, Don’t play OK. I saw today morning, and yesterday too. I will stay at your office outside or you call now or outside or I’ll come to your home today. Amina.”

“If you prefer money than life, It’s OK. Hope you’ll prefer more than money your Rowena life. Better hurry, Razak.”

“I account, I check and goes, And you happy OK. And don’t try to cheat me, Your friends, your layer can’t help you. Today is Monday. If now you send, everything will be OK. And by the way, how feel. Hot, having temperature? Not yet?”
