"There is nothing personal here, I want to reiterate. I know some people are trying to portray it as a personal battle. I have evidence, I submit, evidence against Najib or even Abdullah or whoever.
"We are here. We are talking about the country and the credibility of the institutions of the country and the state of the economy, the way it is managed or mismanaged in this country. "These are the fundamental issues. It is not about Najib or Anwar or Altantuya or whoever." -- Parti Keadilan Rakyat adviser and de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim replying to a question at the Press conference yesterday after private investigator Balasubramaniam Perumal made public his statutory declaration.
PKR vice-president Sivarasa Rasiah who was also at the Press conference, responded to question on whether he was concerned that Balasubramaniam's SD could lead to a mistrial of the ongoing trial.
"That's the obvious. The omission of evidence from the proceedings will certainly lead to a mistrial. So it is timely that Mr Bala has come forward with this and it will allow the prosecution to do something about it because we haven't reached the half-time point of trial. They're just about to make submissions whether there is a case to answer. I hope the prosecution takes this into account and do what is supposed to be done."
