....because he was forced to make the declaration under duress.
We all have read Balasubramaniam Perumal's statutory declaration which he made public at the Parti Keadilan Rakyat headquarters yesterday.
The private investigator made some very serious and damning allegations regarding sexual relations between Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and murdered Mongolian model Altantuya Sharibuu.
(Altantuya was murdered -- her body blown-up -- in 2006. Political analayst Abdul Razak Baginda who is closely linked to Najib is charged with abetting in her murder, allegedly committed by two policemen.)
This morning, at a Press conference in Kuala Lumpur, Bala withdrew THAT SD and produced a new one.
"I wish to retract the first declaration. I was compelled to affirm the July 1 declaration under duress," he said. But he did not reveal who forced him to affirm the first declaration.
He retracted several paragraphs of his SD, among which are that Najib introduced Razak to Altantuya and that Najib had a sexual relationship with her.
Bala was hired by Razak to deal with Altantuya when she allegedly harassed him and threatened to cause him a lot of trouble.
Oh, by the way, Bala has found himself a new lawyer now.
Americk Sidhu, the lawyer who was with him yesterday, did not even know what had been going on, as of yesterday after Bala's PC at the PKR HQ.
(source: The Star online and Malaysiakini. More to come.)
Rocky's Bru did tell us to be prepared for another SD (after Bala's SD yesterday). And viola!
As it gets more bizarre, it gets to be more and more convoluted and unbelievable.
More questions. No answers.
Makes me wonder -- have you people no shame?
I'm so so so tired. Don't even mention that S-word!
