The speed with which private investigator Balasubramaniam made an about turn, less than 24 hours, was mind boggling to say the least. Read the Malaysiakini report "PI retracts stunning statutory declaration", here.
I attended a press conference at the PKR headquarters in Tropicana Merchant Square, Petaling Jaya today, where Balasubramaniam's lawyer Americk Singh Sidhu (photo, left) reiterated that Balasubramaniam's statutory declaration filed on July 1 was made voluntarily.
Malaysiakini also reports, here, that earlier today Balasubramaniam had in another PC, retracted his earlier sworn statement which stunningly implicated DPM Najib with the murdered Altantuya Shaariibuu, which he said was made under duress. However he did not reveal as to who forced him to sign that statement. In place of that sworn statement, Balasubramaniam released a new statutory declaration which removed all mention of Najib in it! Sheeesh.
I smell a rat.
It is rather daunting to consider what some people will do for apom and thosay.
In view of all the above, I believe only a Royal Commission of Inquiry can remove all doubts and suspicions which have been planted, to decide once and for all who is lying and who is telling the truth.
