Gobind accuses Najib of murder and gets thrown out

KUALA LUMPUR, March 12 — Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo was ejected from the Dewan Rakyat for an outburst in which he repeatedly accused Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak of being a murderer.

“Answer me, you murderer!” Gobind shouted after claiming that Najib was involved in the murder of Mongolian model Altantuya Shariibuu and that he had not been investigated properly.

The outburst, after Najib had made his winding up speech during the debate of the second stimulus package, comes on the back of renewed claims published in French newspaper La Liberation concerning Najib and his wife Rosmah Mansor’s alleged involvement in the case.

As Najib was leaving the Dewan Rakyat the Puchong MP threw allegations at the Deputy Prime Minister.

“DPM, you are involved in the murder case, stand up and explain yourself.

“Come back, I’m not finished with you,” Gobind said to which Najib then walked back to his seat and sat down.

Deputy Speaker Datuk Ronald Kiandee then ordered Gobind to leave the house for wasting time on an irrelevant topic.

Gobind refused and had to be escorted out of the Dewan Rakyat by the sergeant-at-arms.

In protest, several opposition MP’s including DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang jeered and proceeded to walk out in support of Gobind straight to a press conference.

While Gobind was giving the press conference, Najib left along with Rosmah and their two children surrounded by his entourage towards the office block in the Parliament compound.
