Raja Petra charged over sworn statement, no plea recorded, released on RM 2,000 bail

On Thursday, 17th July 2008 Raja Petra Kamarudin, a well-known blogger, was arrested and charged with criminal defamation for alleging in a sworn statement that DPM’s Najib's wife, Rosmah Mansor, and others were involved in the 2006 murder and blowing up of 28 year old Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu, a freelance translator.

Raja Petra refused to enter a plea; he was released on bail which was set at RM 2,000.

A separate sworn statement by a private investigator, which he later retracted, also linked Najib to the woman. Both Najib, Rosmah and others have all denied any involvement in Altantuya Shaariibuu's killing.
