Balasubramaniam's new statutory declaration in full …

… as reported in malaysiakini here on 4 July 2008.

Day by day, the ‘turn of events’ are getting more and more interesting!

The following is the new statutory declaration released by P Balasubramanian today at a press conference in Kuala Lumpur.

I, Balasubramaniam Perumal, do solemnly and sincerely declare as follows:

1. I have been a police officer with the Royal Malaysian Police Force having joined as a constable in 1981. I was subsequently promoted to the rank of lance corporal and finally resigned from the Royal Malaysian Police Force in 1998.

2. I currently work as a freelance private investigator.

3. I wish to refer to the statutory declaration I affirmed on July 1, 2008. I refer specifically to paragraphs 8, 25, 28, 49 and 50 to 52, wherein I have stated inter-alia that:

a) Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that he was introduced to Altantuya Shaariibuu by a VIP;

b) Najib Razak informed Abdul Razak Baginda that he had a sexual relationship with Altantuya Shaariibuu and that she was susceptible to anal intercourse;

c) Najib Razak instructed Abdul Razak Baginda to look after Altantuya Shaariibuu as he did not want her to harass him since he was the deputy prime minister;

d) Najib Razak, Abdul Razak Baginda and Altantuya Shaariibuu had met and all been together at a dinner in Paris;

e) Altantuya Shaariibuu wanted money in the sum of US$500,000 as a commission for a submarine deal she assisted with in Paris;

f) Altantuya Shaariibuu met Najib Razak in Singapore;

g) Altantuya Shaariibuu wanted me to arrange to see Najib Razak;

h) I told the police about the relationship between Najib Razak and Altantuya Shaariibuu but when it came to sign my statement this detail was left out;

i) The prosecutor during the course of the trial in the High Court of Shah Alam did not ask me any questions in respect of Altantuya Shaariibuu’s purported relationship with Najib Razak or of a phone call I received from one DSP Musa Safri, whom I believe was the ADC to Najib Razak and/or his wife;

j) Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that he had sent Najib Razak an SMS the evening before he was arrested but did not receive a response; and

k) Najib Razak sent an SMS to Abdul Razak Baginda on the day of his arrest to the effect that he was going to see the IGP that day and that the matter should be resolved and for Abdul Razak Baginda to remain calm.

4. I wish to retract all the statements that I have made in paragraphs 8, 25, 28, 49 and 50 to 52 of my statutory declaration dated July 1, 2008. The statements contained in paragraphs 8, 25, 28, 49 and 50 to 52 of my statutory declaration dated July 1, 2008 are inaccurate and not the truth. I wish to expressly state that:

a) At no material time did Abdul Razak Baginda inform me that he was introduced to Altantuya Shaariibuu by a VIP;

b) At no material time did Razak Baginda inform me that Najib Razak had a sexual relationship with Altantuya Shaariibuu and the she was susceptible to anal intercourse;

c) At no material time did Abdul Razak Baginda inform me that Najib Razak instructed Abdul Razak Baginda to look after Altantuya Shaariibuu as he did not want her to harass him since he was the deputy prime minister;

d) At no material time did Razak Baginda and/or Altantuya Shaariibuu inform me that Najib Razak, together with Abdul Razak Baginda and Altantuya Shaariibuu had met and all been together at a dinner in Paris;

e) At no material time did Altantuya Shaariibuu inform me that she wanted money in the sum of US$500,000 as a commission for a submarine deal she assisted with in Paris;

f) At no time whatsoever did Abdul Razak Baginda and/or Altantuya Shaariibuu inform me that Najib Razak met with Altantuya Shaariibuu in Singapore;

g) At no time whatsoever did Altantuya Shaariibuu inform me that she wanted me to arrange to see Najib Razak;

h) At no time did I tell the police during the course of their investigations about any relationship between Najib Razak and Altantuya Shaariibuu as no such relationship existed to my knowledge. Accordingly, the statement I signed before the police is complete;

i) At no time did Abdul Razak Baginda inform me that he had sent Najib Razak an SMS the evening before he was arrested; and

j) At no time did Abdul Razak Baginda inform me that Najib Razak had sent him an SMS on the day of his arrest to the effect that he was going to see the IGP that day and that the matter should be resolved and for Abdul Razak Baginda to remain calm.

5. In addition, I wish to retract the entire contents of my statutory declaration dated July 1, 2008. I was compelled to affirm the said statutory declaration dated July 1, 2008 under duress.

And I make this solemn declaration voluntarily and conscientiously believing the same to be true, and by virtue of the provisions of the Statutory Declarations Act 1960.

Balasubramaniam a/l Perumal

    I am flabbergasted How can a man solemnly declared something yesterday and changed less than 24 hours later?

    He mentioned he was under duress but from who?

    I wonder any legal implication would befall on him since he has contradicted his own declaration.

    This is a positive development for Najib but negative for Anwar. The biggest winner is still the fee collecting Commissioner for Oaths.

    Under such circumstances, Balasubramaniam can be charged for perjury, which is a serious offence. Upon conviction one will land in jail. I hope that a police report be lodged and AG will prosecute him so that in future no one will swear a Statutory Declaration for fun!

    I’m inclined to believe that Bala was successfully “turned over” in less than 24 hours, hence the retraction of the statutory declaration.

    Likewise, the same will never, never happen to Saifool’s SD.

    Of course, Malaysia boleh. Of course, we are also clowns for others to laugh at. The country has gone to the dog! I just cannot blelieve that we have sunk to such a level under this Sleepy Head.

    How long more we have to face such sorry state of this beautiful country? Do we need to tolerate Badawi any longer? He better leave before this country goes koyak!

    Another sandiwara… Malaysia’s political scene is full of dramatic turns. The rakyat stands to lose with so much time wasted on these issues. But the press and commissioner of oath are having a field day. Oh… maybe the rakyat benefits something – from all the excitement and scandals. But while everyone is busy with all these craps, nobody will remember about the fuel subsidy, the promised public transport improvement, looming economic slowdown and even the endless corridors. Yah… Malaysia truly Boleh!

    The new lawyer for Bala comes from the law firm of Federal Territory minister’s brother; Zulhasnan Rafique who rigged himself in after he was beaten by a young PKR man, the son of KL’s 1st Mayor. Well, you know how he behaves. He is also a corrupt man.
