KUALA LUMPUR: The death sentence of a former policeman convicted of killing a young woman in a scandal linked to the country’s disgraced ex-premier may be commuted to allow his return from Australia, Malaysia’s leader said Friday, reports AFP. 

Sirul Azhar Umar is in Australian custody after fleeing Malaysia in 2015 and maintains he was ordered by “important people” to murder the Mongolian woman, Altantuya Shaariibuu, in 2006.

Altantuya was killed and her body blown up with military-grade explosives.
