FORMER political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda, who was charged with abetment in the murder of Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu and is now being investigated over the Scorpene submarine scandal, said in a radio interview that he has “moved on”.

“You know at this stage of my life, I don’t really care. I don’t really give a toss about all this, simply because it’s in the hands of my lawyers,” he told BFM in an interview to promote his newly established think-tank ICON Centre for Global Affairs.

  • Just wait. The truth will reveal itself.

  • An accomplice to a murder cannot be allowed to "move on." When the truth of the murder is eventually revealed, the accomplice must face justice and jail-time. No "moving on" nonsense. If you are not an accomplice, it is fine to move on.

  • He can move on because of his cable. Altantuya will continue to haunt him and his associates. Let see where he will be when MO1 is removed.

  • Sounds like a criminal trying to weasel his way out, "moved on" is a codeword for I'm trying to survive while my Godfather (MO1) is still in power. Seriously Baginda, you could be in the worldwide headline for say, inventing a cure for cancer, but you chose "killing Altantuya for Scorpene fraud". Truth will prevail and criminals will do time.

  • The face of an inglorious basterd. Somewhere, someday, something will catch up with him. Hopefully before he gets old and gets demented and turns into a drooling, wizened old man mouthing gibberish and then dies.

  • Wow!! You speaking big Huh!! Only brave bcos your pillar of strength lies in the ruling regime. Even the fat boy have stayed silent but you have to be a hero huh!!. You have not moved on as the grip are still clinging very tightly. Do not be superfluous with your words and speech by throwing an attitude to distract.You are not successful in that manner of action as the forgone affirmative conclusion are deeply entrenched in the public perception in your nasty role. You can't hide the very fact by being nonchalant and pretentious in not giving a damn by showing a false bravado. You wait. When the time comes and the number is in line as per to the law of nature forces and justice ordainef has to be fufilled you can run but you can' t hide. Yoy will be seeking and begging for public sympathy. What goes around shud definitely comrs around.

  • How can you be let off just like that ? Moving on is for those who have been wronged. You will still have to answer to your maker. How do you even sleep at night?

  • Such audacity! The mills of God grind slowly...

  • Still trying to be relevant Razak? You pathetic little man. You had nothing to offer pre- Altantuya/ murder and you still have nothing to offer now. So why don’t you just buzz off and leave us alone. Nothing good or intelligent had ever come out of your mouth. You are just a conman. So just go away!

  • Bingo! We certainly gotta one Bigly Mouth spewing all round nonsense `solely to let himself feel normal again and also have that false sense of feel good again that could never be masked by his dismissive "move on" tone. As one of the Yankee movie was aptly called: I Know What You Did Last Summer!

    Above all, his display of intransigent stand of non-repentant and callous attitude towards the dastardly barbaric murder of a fellow human being (conventionally regarded as the weaker sex) whom he befriended (and probably romanced with too!) renders his so-called elitist effort to resurrect himself (as some fanciful but dubious wannabe "think-tank"!) is just simply devoid of any human decency and also smacks of some intellectual morons of the lowest order.

    A pious Muslim intellectual could have never had that audacity to emulate him, could s'he? You bet!

  • Fees paid for aiding and abetting corruption. RICH.. He should have moved to jail and oblivion. STILL DO AND WILL ALWAYS SHOULD.

  • Razak Baginda's "I dont really care" statement, you know at this stage of my life, I dont really care. I dont really give a toss about all this, simply because its in the hands of my lawyers will soon come back to haunt him. His mistress, Altantuyaa's death needs to be atoned, and "I don't really care" may not cut it without the kangaroo court.
