PETALING JAYA: Najib Razak should now file a defamation suit against Azilah Hadri who had claimed that the former prime minister ordered the murder of Mongolian citizen Altantuya Shaariibuu, a civil lawyer said.

Americk Sidhu said the suit would help clear Najib’s name as the former policeman’s statutory declaration (SD) had tainted him.

“Najib should file the suit not with the intention of obtaining damages but to redeem his reputation in the eyes of the public,” he told FMT.

Americk said the former prime minister had in the past been constrained from doing anything about Azilah’s claim as the Altantuya and Azilah matters were still pending before the courts. Yesterday, Azilah exhausted all his legal avenues when the Federal Court dismissed his application for a review of his murder conviction and death sentence.
