I knew Razak Baginda because ..., 24 Aug 2012 [cached]
I knew Razak Baginda because when I was going to Malaysia he was one of the people I interviewed because he was with the Malaysian Strategic Research Centre. I don't know him well, but I have interviewed him four or five times and I am quite disappointed with his behaviour (of not supporting Altantuya).

"He is devastated, no doubt about it, but he is also a deeply religious man and I think he will come out of it before long," said Razak Baginda, executive director of the Malaysian Strategic Research Centre."In fact his religion will strengthen his resolveàhe might come out of it a stronger person," Razak told IPS.

"There is this feeling that there're two Thailands in Thailand," said Razak Baginda, head of think-tank Malaysian Strategic Research Centre in Kuala Lumpur.
Razak said a "Buddhist Thailand" was greatly more advanced than a neglected "very small Muslim Thailand".
"At the end of the day, it is the economic motivation that is going to alleviate the people's plight," he said.
Abdul Razak Baginda trial, 18 Nov 2006 [cached]
After about two weeks of speculation and rumours, Razak, 46, was charged with abetting two elite policemen in the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu.
It was reported that she was shot twice, execution style, before her body was blown up by explosives.
Razak, who is the executive director of the Malaysian Strategic Research Centre, was arrested on Nov 7 and had been in remand since.
He was brought to the court complex in a Black Maria at 11.15am and taken to the lock-up.Soon after, Kuala Lumpur court complex police beat head Deputy Superintendent Zulkifli Othman was seen going inside the lock-up and explaining to Razak that he was to be charged.
After Razak calmed down, he was taken to the packed courtroom in handcuffs.The court was filled with local and foreign journalists and Razak's family members.
Razak, who was wearing a long-sleeve light blue shirt and dark pants, immediately hugged his brother Dr Rani Abdullah, who said: "Be strong, you will get through this."
Razak continued to look in disbelief.
Razak's daughter, Roweena, 19, was seen signalling to her father that she loved him.She also signalled to him to be strong.
Razak, or Abdul Razak Abdullah, of Damansara Heights, was then charged under Section 109, read with Section 302, of the Penal Code with abetting Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar in murdering Altantuya.
Datuk Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, representing Razak, said he had no objections.
Aizatul allowed the prosecution's application.However, no date was set for mention.Razak hugged his wife before leaving for the court lock-up.
Asked later about his meeting with Razak, Shafee said: "We met with Razak for 10 minutes to explain court procedures.
"I do not know when is the next date.We have to wait for the next court proceedings."
Shafee said Razak was not well as a result of a chest infection.He declined to discuss the case.
Puravalen said Razak was shocked when he was told that he would be charged."Razak could not believe it," he added.
So Razak being a close associate of Najib must have thought likewise.That's why the look of disbelief when his charged.He never thought it would come to this.
Razak Baginda seemed to be supporting a particular agenda and then the whole "plan" schrewed up?If Razak Baginda is out of the picture who will benefit?If Razak Baginda is aligned to Najib, then who are Najib's enemies?
