Saya Tak Akan Lepaskan Awak

Altantuya Shaariibuu (Mongolian: Шаарийбуугийн Алтантуяа) has come back to haunt Najib Razak!

If you can recall, she was the socialite who was shot twice in the head and then blown to pieces by C-4 explosives in 2006.

Two former policemen, Azilah Hadri and Sirul Azhar Umar were charged, convicted and acquitted, before their convictions were upheld. In all that time, conspiracy theories have not stopped being shared in kopitiams and over social media about who the actual mastermind was. 

One of them, Azilah has released a damning Statutory Declaration from Kajang Prison implicating Najib. This has triggered calls for a retrial of the murder and put back the spotlight on the former prime minister. 

[Check out my December 16, 2019 post titled “SD That Tells of Najib Razak's Shoot to Kill Order” for the background story].

Liverpool have advanced to the FIFA Club World Cup final, beating Monterrey 2-1 in a tightly contested match in the Qatari capital, Doha on Wednesday.

Naby Keita opened the scoring in the eleventh minute after an excellent Mohamed Salah through ball before the Mexican side equalized barely three minutes later. 

And Salah again came into the picture when he beat two defenders down the right side, fend them off long enough to pick off the runner Trent Alexander-Arnold, who found Roberto Firmino practically on the goal line for the nifty finish (90+1), just five minutes after coming on as a substitute 

The Reds now take on Flamengo in Saturday's final after the Brazilian side beat Saudi Arabia's Al Hilal 3-1 on Tuesday. 

Also on the same day, Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic moved five points clear when they punished Hearts 2-0. 

Ryan Christie curled in the opener in the twenty-eighth minute, and Olivier Ntcham adding on the score in the fortieth minute to move Celtic further ahead of Rangers, who have a game in hand.
