Three activists were arrested this morning for attempting to deliver a cake commemorating the 31st birthday of Altantuya Shaariibuu to the Prime Minister’s Office in Putrajaya.


altantuya and prime minister office jpmThe activists, all of whom are from the Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia, were detained at 11.15am by the police near the security booth in front of the building.

About 30 police officers and 10 light strike force personnel were deployed to stop the activists from entering the building.

Those arrested were Sani Md Shah – who was holding a butter cake topped with white icing – and Saufi Mihat and Yasir Sheikh Abdul Rahman, who were carrying a ‘Happy Birthday Altantuya’ banner.

The group had intended to deliver a letter to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak written by Altantuya’s father, Setev.

Cake squashed by the police

The square cake, weighing about 2kg, was squashed by the police when it was being confiscated. According to the police, the cake was seized for ‘security reasons’.

The cake was taken in a police car along with the three detainees to the police headquarters in Putrajaya.

Altantuya was shot twice in the head and her body blown up with military-grade explosives in a jungle clearing three years ago. She was 28 when she died.

Her former lover, Abdul Razak Baginda, who is a close associate of Najib, had been accused of ordering two police officers to kill her after she came to his family home to harass him for money.

Razak Baginda was initially charged with abetting the two men, but was acquitted last October.

The two officers, however, have been found guilty and sentenced to death. They are appealing the ruling.
