UPDATE: Read Art Harun’s The RPK Factor as why we should not blame RPK for the revelations on Anwar

Talk about bad timing for Anwar…
(Once a thorn for the ruling party, RPK’s latest admission has played in favor of the ruling party and at the right time too – when Sarawak State Elections is just around the corner. Najib can breathe a bit better now, we are pretty sure. Image source: http://www.selangortoday.wordpress.com)
Always been the man with controversy, RPK’s latest admission will not only put a dent on Anwar Ibrahim who not only facing sodomy charges but also entangled with sex video, it also puts a severe creditability poser on RPK himself and Malaysia Today.
Controversial fugitive blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin had doubts about his statutory declaration (SD) implicating Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor in the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu.
In a sensational interview over TV3 last night, Raja Petra said he had made the allegations on the belief that the order came from PKR adviser and Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
The Malaysia Today founder and editor said his SD in 2008 which stated he was reliably informed that Rosmah was among those present at the crime scene on Oct 19, 2006 when Altantuya was killed was based on information and demand by several individuals aimed at preventing Najib from becoming prime minister.
Ok, it somehow clears Najib and his wife from the murder allegations but it does not clear the air as why Altantuya was killed and whether there was huge commission paid unnecessarily. Perhaps we have to wait for another revelation in the future.
But for now, RPK’s latest admission is a serious blow to Anwar Ibrahim
