We are planning to write a story on the Malaysian trial postponement for the upcoming edition, June 7. The Malaysian High Court postponed on Monday the trial of a prominent political analyst accused of involvement in the murder of a Mongolian woman, Sh.Altantuya, after prosecutors said they had only been assigned to the case the day before.
"Too much politics involved. I think this is a political case. I hope your Government will do something... Our thoughts and hearts are with the Altantuya family now in Malaysia," said a retired lawyer from Singapore in his email to me today.
It got wide coverage on major Mongolian language daily newspaper on Tuesday. In Mongolia, so much angry reactions among public to the trial postponement. People of Mongolia demanding justive over the trial and hoping it would be free from any political influence.
Web site traffic of the UB Post has been rocketed, especially from Malaysia and Singapore after the murder trial in the last two days.
