KUALA LUMPUR: The father of the murdered Mongolian model, Altantuya Shaariibuu, has cried foul over the release of former Malaysian policeman Sirul Azhar Umar from prison in Australia. Her father Dr Shaariibuu Setev responded to Australian immigration'sa decision to release Sirul and 86 other detainees following a High Court ruling that did away with indefinite detention. In an interview with the newspaper Weekend Australian, Shaariibuu said he was shocked that his daughter's killer was now walking free, saying ''he was disappointed in Australia.'' Shaariibuu asked when the Australian government would send him an apology, adding "I really wonder why Australia released a murderer. Najib's former associate, Abdul Razak Baginda, 63, and the Malaysian government have also been named in the suit.
