PI Bala: I swear first SD was the truth

PI Bala: I swear first SD was the truth

Leven Woon | February 24, 2013
SEPANG Former private investigator P Balasubramaniam returned to Malaysia today and immediately declared that the first statutory declaration (SD) he made in 2008 on the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shariibuu was the truth.
Holding up a Hindu holy book Bhagavad Gita, he swore that the allegation linking Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to the murder contained in the first SD was a fact.
“I swear on this holy book that the first SD was the truth. But the circumstances that happened to me that night [after I produced the first SD] forced me to change.
“I m very sorry. But the truth can only be the truth. My lawyer and I sat for two months to draft the first SD,” he told reporters on arrival at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport here.
Balasubramaniam was greeted by more than 50 people, mostly from PKR including Subang MP R Sivarasa.
PKR Rembau division chief Badrul Hisham Shaharin (Chegubard) garlanded the emotional Balasubramaniam while the crowd chanted “Welcome Bala, Long Live Bala”.
In his first SD announced on July 3, 2008, Balasubramaniam claimed that he was engaged by Abdul Razak Baginda in 2006 to deal with the Altantuya’s harassment. He was also told that Najib had a sexual relationship with Altantuya.
Balasubramaniam alleged that Najib was involved in the murder of Altantuya and the then Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan was asked to “take care” of the case for Najib.
However, he produced the SD the next day and retracted all his allegations against Najib.
He has since disappeared from public view and has reportedly been staying in India.
Balasubramaniam said his return was hassle-free as the Immigration Department officials did not harass him and only asked him about his address.
He also confirmed that carpet trader Deepak Jaikishan was the one who persuaded him to retract his first SD, but added that he would not team up with Deepak for a series of exposé on the Altantuya murder case
“Let me do my thing myself. I won’t specially go and do [a press conference] with him. I have full knowledge of the first SD. I can do it myself,” he said.
He also said he would not be overly worried about his safety, because should anything happen to him, it would paint the perpetrator in the Altantuya murder case in a bad light.
“If something happen to me tomorrow, where would you point your finger? There was already the first murder, do you want a second murder?” he said.
Balasubramaniam left for his home in Rawamg.
His first ceramah will be held at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall at 8pm on Feb 27. He will be sharing the same stage with Badrul Hisham and national laureate A Samad Said.

ALTANTUYA'S C4 MURDER - IT'S TIME THE KING STEPPED IN!



ONLY 1 MAN (AND MAYBE, HIS WOMAN) STANDS TO GAIN FROM PI (PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR) BALA'S 2ND STATUTORY DECLARATION (SD) OF 4TH JULY 2008!
by bagindarosemajibbaladipak, Donplaypuks® intrepid correspondent for C4 murder affairs



SIX long years years after the C4 mafia-style execution of Altantuya, the IGP, Police, Home Minister Hishamudin, PM Najib and the (wooden) Cabinet have all glaringly failed to investigate, identify and charge in court the person who gave the ORDERS to kill Altantuya, with murder. This, despite, the testimony of two military police personnel that they had been offered $100,000 to carry out the peculiar murder of Alatantuya - shot AND blown up with C4 plastic explosives in Kuala Lumpur.

Is there any democratic regime in the world that can continue to claim its legitimacy to govern, after what appears to be the championing of a murder cover up, especially now that Deepak has publicly revealed that PI Bala was coerced into withdrawing and replacing his 1st SD by certain police officers?

It's time for our King to step in and deliver true JUSTICE. 
Or else, MALAYSIA must stand condemned as a ROGUE MAFIA-STYLE REGIME, to join the ranks of 3rd and 4th world pariah countries which promote terrorism, piracy, murder and mayhem!
Both of PI Bala's SD's are reproduced below to enable you to make a judgement call:
A. The following is the full 16-page statutory declaration signed by Abdul Razak Baginda's former private investigator P Balasubramaniam on 1st July 2008, and released at a Press Conference on 3rd July 2008.

I, Balasubramaniam a/l 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 attached to the police field force. I was then promoted to the rank of lance corporal and finally resigned from the police force in 1998 when I was with the Special Branch.

2. I have been working as a freelance private investigator since I left the police force.

3. Sometime in June or July 2006, I was employed by Abdul Razak Baginda for a period of 10 days to look after him at his office at the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang between the hours of 8am to 5pm each working day as apparently he was experiencing disturbances from a third party.

4. I resigned from this job after 2½ days as I was not receiving any proper instructions.

5. I was however re-employed by Abdul Razak Baginda on the Oct 5, 2006 as he had apparently received a harassing phone call from a Chinese man calling himself ASP Tan who had threatened him to pay his debts. I later found out this gentleman was in fact a private investigator called Ang who was employed by a Mongolian woman called Altantuya Shaaribuu.

6. Abdul Razak Baginda was concerned that a person by the name of Altantuya Shaaribuu, a Mongolian woman, was behind this threat and that she would be arriving in Malaysia very soon to try and contact him.

7. Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that he was concerned by this as he had been advised that Altantuya Shaaribuu had been given some powers by a Mongolian ‘bomoh’ and that he could never look her in the face because of this.

8. When I enquired as to who this Mongolian woman was, Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that she was a friend of his who had been introduced to him by a VIP and who asked him to look after her financially.

9. I advised him to lodge a police report concerning the threatening phone call he had received from the Chinese man known as ASP Tan but he refused to do so as he informed me there were some high-profile people involved.

10. Abdul Razak Baginda further told me that Altantuya Shaaribuu was a great liar and good in convincing people. She was supposed to have been very demanding financially and that he had even financed a property for her in Mongolia.

11. Abdul Razak Baginda then let me listen to some voice messages on his handphone asking him to pay what was due otherwise he would be harmed and his daughter harassed.

12. I was therefore supposed to protect his daughter Rowena as well.

13. On Oct 9, 2006 I received a phone call from Abdul Razak Baginda at about 9.30am informing me that Altantuya was in his office and he wanted me there immediately. As I was in the midst of a surveillance, I sent my assistant Suras to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office and I followed a little later. Suras managed to control the situation and had persuaded Altantuya and her two friends to leave the premises. However Altantuya left a note written on some Hotel Malaya notepaper, in English, asking Abdul Razak Baginda to call her on her handphone (number given) and wrote down her room number as well.

14. Altantuya had introduced herself to Suras as ‘Aminah’ and had informed Suras she was there to see her boyfriend Abdul Razak Baginda.

15. These three Mongolian girls however returned to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office at the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang again, the next day at about 12 noon. They did not enter the building but again informed Suras that they wanted to meet Aminah’s boyfriend, Abdul Razak Baginda.

16. On Oct 11, 2006, Aminah returned to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office on her own and gave me a note to pass to him, which I did. Abdul Razak Baginda showed me the note which basically asked him to call her urgently.

17. I suggested to Abdul Razak Baginda that perhaps it may be wise to arrange for Aminah to be arrested if she harassed him further, but he declined as he felt she would have to return to Mongolia as soon as her cash ran out.

18. In the meantime, I had arranged for Suras to perform surveillance on Hotel Malaya to monitor the movements of these three Mongolian girls, but they recognised him. Apparently they become friends with Suras after that and he ended up spending a few nights in their hotel room.

19. When Abdul Razak Baginda discovered Suras was becoming close to Aminah he asked me to pull him out from Hotel Malaya.

20. On the Oct 14, 2006, Aminah turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house in Damansara Heights when I was not there. Abdul Razak Baginda called me on my handphone to inform me of this so I rushed back to his house. As I arrived, I noticed Aminah outside the front gates shouting “Razak, bastard, come out from the house”. I tried to calm her down but couldn’t, so I called the police who arrived in two patrol cars. I explained the situation to the police, who took her away to the Brickfields police station.

21. I followed the patrol cars to Brickfields police station in a taxi. I called Abdul Razak Baginda and his lawyer Dirren to lodge a police report but they refused.

22. When I was at the Brickfields police station, Aminah’s own private investigator, one Mr Ang arrived and we had a discussion. I was told to deliver a demand to Abdul Razak Baginda for US$500,000 and three tickets to Mongolia, apparently as commission owed to Aminah from a deal in Paris.

23. As Aminah had calmed down at this stage, a policewoman at the Brickfields police station advised me to leave and settle the matter amicably.

24. I duly informed Abdul Razak Baginda of the demands Aminah had made and told him I was disappointed that no one wanted to back me up in lodging a police report. We had a long discussion about the situation when I expressed a desire to pull out of this assignment.

25. During this discussion and in an attempt to persuade me to continue my employment with him, Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that:

1) He had been introduced to Aminah by Najib Razak at a diamond exhibition in Singapore.

2) Najib Razak informed Abdul Razak Baginda that he had a sexual relationship with Aminah and that she was susceptible to anal intercourse.

3) Najib Razak wanted Abdul Razak Baginda to look after Aminah as he did not want her to harass him since he was now the deputy prime minister.

4) Najib Razak, Abdul Razak Baginda and Aminah had all been together at a dinner in Paris.

5) Aminah wanted money from him as she felt she was entitled to a US$500,000 commission on a submarine deal she assisted with in Paris.

26. On Oct 19, 2006, I arrived at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house in Damansara Heights to begin my night duty. I had parked my car outside as usual. I saw a yellow Proton Perdana taxi pass by with three ladies inside, one of whom was Aminah. The taxi did a U-turn and stopped in front of the house where these ladies rolled down the window and wished me ‘Happy Deepavali’. The taxi then left.

27. About 20 minutes later the taxi returned with only Aminah in it. She got out of the taxi and walked towards me and started talking to me. I sent an SMS to Abdul Razak Baginda informing him “Aminah was here”. I received an SMS from Razak instructing me “to delay her until my man comes”.

28. Whist I was talking to Aminah, she informed me of the following:

1) That she met Abdul Razak Baginda in Singapore with Najib Razak.
2) That she had also met Abdul Razak Baginda and Najib Razak at a dinner in Paris.

3) That she was promised a sum of US$500,000.00 as commission for assisting in a submarine deal in Paris.

4) That Abdul Razak Baginda had bought her a house in Mongolia but her brother had refinanced it and she needed money to redeem it.

5) That her mother was ill and she needed money to pay for her treatment.

6) That Abdul Razak Baginda had married her in Korea as her mother is Korean whilst her father was a Mongolian/Chinese mix.

7) That if I wouldn’t allow her to see Abdul Razak Baginda, would I be able to arrange for her to see Najib Razak.

29. After talking to Aminah for about 15 minutes, a red Proton Aeroback arrived with a woman and two men. I now know the woman to be lance corporal Rohaniza and the men, Azilah Hadri and Sirul Azahar. They were all in plainclothes. Azilah walked towards me while the other two stayed in the car.

30. Azilah asked me whether the woman was Aminah and I said “Yes”. He then walked off and made a few calls on his handphone. After 10 minutes another vehicle, a blue Proton Saga, driven by a Malay man, passed by slowly. The drivers window had been wound down and the driver was looking at us.

31. Azilah then informed me they would be taking Aminah away. I informed Aminah they were arresting her. The other two persons then got out of the red Proton and exchanged seats so that lance corporal Rohaniza and Aminah were in the back while the two men were in the front. They drove off and that is the last I ever saw of Aminah.

32. Abdul Razak Baginda was not at home when all this occurred.

33. After Oct 19, 2006, I continued to work for Abdul Razak Baginda at his house in Damansara Heights from 7pm to 8am the next morning, as he had been receiving threatening text messages from a woman called ‘Amy’ who was apparently ‘Aminah’s’ cousin in Mongolia.

34. On the night of Oct 20, 2006, both of Aminah’s girlfriends turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house enquiring where Aminah was. I informed them she had been arrested the night before.

35. A couple of nights later, these two Mongolian girls, Mr Ang and another Mongolian girl called ‘Amy’ turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house looking for Aminah as they appeared to be convinced she was being held in the house.

36. A commotion began so I called the police who arrived shortly thereafter in a patrol car. Another patrol car arrived a short while later in which was the investigating officer from the Dang Wangi police station who was in charge of the missing persons report lodged by one of the Mongolians girls, I believe was Amy.

37. I called Abdul Razak Baginda who was at home to inform him of the events taking place at his front gate. He then called DSP Musa Safri and called me back informing me that Musa Safri would be calling handphone and I was to pass the phone to the inspector from Dang Wangi police station.

38. I then received a call on my handphone from Musa Safri and duly handed the phone to the Dang Wangi inspector. The conversation lasted 3-4 minutes after which he told the girls to disperse and to go to see him the next day.

39. On or about Oct 24, 2006, Abdul Razak Baginda instructed me to accompany him to the Brickfields police station as he had been advised to lodge a police report about the harassment he was receiving from these Mongolian girls.

40. Before this, Amy had sent me an SMS informing me she was going to Thailand to lodge a report with the Mongolian consulate there regarding Aminah’s disappearance. Apparently she had sent the same SMS to Abdul Razak Baginda. This is why he told me he had been advised to lodge a police report.

41. Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that DPS Musa Safri had introduced him to one DSP Idris, the head of the criminal division, Brickfields police station, and that Idris had referred him to ASP Tonny.

42. When Abdul Razak Baginda had lodged his police report at Brickfields police station, in front of ASP Tonny, he was asked to make a statement but he refused as he said he was leaving for overseas. He did however promise to prepare a statement and hand ASP Tonny a thumbdrive. I know that this was not done as ASP Tonny told me.

43. However ASP Tonny asked me the next day to provide my statement instead and so I did.

44. I stopped working for Abdul Razak Baginda on Oct 26, 2006 as this was the day he left for Hong Kong on his own.

45. In mid-November 2006, I received a phone call from ASP Tonny from the IPK Jalan Hang Tuah asking me to see him regarding Aminah’s case. When I arrived there I was immediately arrested under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation.

46. I was then placed in the lock-up and remanded for five days. On the third day, I was released on police bail.

47. At the end of November 2006, the D9 department of the IPK sent a detective to my house to escort me to the IPK Jalan Hang Tuah. When I arrived, I was told I was being arrested under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder. I was put in the lock-up and remanded for seven days.

48. I was transported to Bukit Aman where I was interrogated and questioned about an SMS I had received from Abdul Razak Baginda on Oct 19, 2006 which read “delay her until my man arrives”. They had apparently retrieved this message from Abdul Razak Baginda’s handphone.

49. They then proceeded to record my statement from 8.30 am to 6pm everyday for seven consecutive days. I told them all I knew including everything Abdul Razak Baginda and Aminah had told me about their relationships with Najib Razak but when I came to sign my statement, these details had been left out.

50. I have given evidence in the trial of Azilah, Sirul and Abdul Razak Baginda at the Shah Alam High Court. The prosecutor did not ask me any questions in respect of Aminah’s relationship with Najib Razak or of the phone call I received from DSP Musa Safri, whom I believe was the ADC for Najib Razak and/or his wife.

51. On the day Abdul Razak Baginda was arrested, I was with him at his lawyers office at 6.30am. Abdul Razak Baginda informed us that he had sent Najib Razak an SMS the evening before as he refused to believe he was to be arrested, but had not received a response.

52. Shortly thereafter, at about 7.30am, Abdul Razak Baginda received an SMS from Najib Razak and showed, this message to both myself and his lawyer. This message read as follows: “ I am seeing IGP at 11am today … matter will be solved … be cool”.

53. I have been made to understand that Abdul Razak Baginda was arrested the same morning at his office in the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang.

54. The purpose of this Statutory declaration is to:

1) State my disappointment at the standard of investigations conducted by the authorities into the circumstances surrounding the murder of Altantuya Shaaribuu.

2) Bring to the notice of the relevant authorities the strong possibility that there are individuals other than the three accused who must have played a role in the murder of Altantuya Shaaribuu.

3) Persuade the relevant authorities to reopen their investigations into this case immediately so that any fresh evidence may be presented to the court prior to submissions at the end of the prosecutions case.

4) Emphasise the fact that having been a member of the Royal Malaysian Police Force for 17 years, I am absolutely certain no police officer would shoot someone in the head and blow up their body without receiving specific instructions from their superiors first.

5) Express my concern that should the defence not be called in the said murder trial, the accused, Azilah and Sirul will not have to swear on oath and testify as to the instructions they received and from whom they were given.

55. And I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing the same be true and by virtue of the provisions of the Statutory Declaration Act 1960.

PI Bala returns, vows to help oust BN

By Md Izwan
February 25, 2013
SEPANG, Feb 24 — Private investigator P. Balasubramaniam returned to Malaysia today, vowing to help voters and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) oust the Barisan Nasional (BN) government in Election 2013. Balasubramaniam fled the country since he made a second sworn statement to refute his first statutory declaration (SD) that implicated Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor in the 2006 murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaaribuu.
Talks had been circulating that he was planning to return home and campaign for the federal opposition bloc. "I came back because I want to be with my fellow Malaysians.
We must change this corrupt government. "If we let them govern for 50 years more this country will be ruined," he told some 50 PKR supporters who greeted him at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport here upon his arrival from India.
The former private investigator also swore that he had made the second SD under duress while claiming that the allegations contained in the first statement was the truth.
Balasubramaniam (picture) had said in the past that he fled the country after he and his family received death threats.
"I had no other choice. I had to take my family out of the country," he said.
The former PI confirmed that controversial carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan had assisted in the drafting of the second SD.



















Former private investigator P Balasubramaniam today publicly swore that his first statutory declaration in July 2008 linking Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to slain Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu was the truth.

Speaking to reporters after arriving at KLIA this evening, a teary-eyed Balasubramaniam held a copy of the Hindu scripture Bhagavad Gita and stressed that the statutory declaration (SD) he made to nullify the first document was untrue.

“I swear on this holy book that the first SD is the truth and nothing but the truth. I'm sorry to all of you that the second SD is not true,” he said.
Balasubramaniam's first statutory declaration contained vivid details of his alleged interactions with several personalities leading to Altantuya's final days.

Among other issues, he claimed that Najib was close to Altantuya.

Just one day after making the SD public, he withdrew it with a second SD, claiming that he had made the first under duress.

Following this episode, he fled the country and has since claimed that the first was true and it was the second SD that was made under duress.

'They can't afford to harm me'

Balasubramaniam is now back in the country alone to campaign for Pakatan Rakyat, leaving his wife and children abroad.
Balasubramaniam said that he would be revealing more about the Altantuya murder in the coming days.

balasubramaniam klia 240213"On that day, I will let you know what happened, inch-by-inch," he said.

Asked if he was still concerned over his safety, Balasubramaniam said yes.

“But I tell you, if something happens to me tomorrow, where will you point the finger?

“There has already been one murder. Do you want a second murder?” he said, cryptically.
To another question, Balasubramaniam said he would not actively seek collaboration with Deepak Jaikishan, the well-connected carpet trader who was instrumental in the preparation of SD2.

“(But) if he (Deepak) comes forward and wants to work with me, I am okay with it. But I won’t go looking for him,” he said.

Deepak: PI Bala and I on the same team

Anisah Shukry | February 25, 2013
Deepak Jaikishan said he would approach P Balasubramaniam in the next few days over drinks to discuss the matter of the statutory declaration.
PETALING JAYA: Businessman Deepak Jaikishan today did not rule out the idea of collaborating with former private investigator P Balasubramaniam to reveal “the truth” behind the 2006 murder of Mongolian translator Altantuya Shaariibuu.
“It’s a bit too soon for me to say [if we shall collaborate], but we are definitely on the same team. We both want justice. He is a very brave man, and I pray that his endeavours are successful,” Deepak told FMT when contacted today.
He said he would approach Bala, as he is popularly known, for a chat over drinks in the next few days.
“We have a common goal, which is that justice prevails. It’s not easy, what we are doing, as we are accusing higher authorities of committing a criminal act,” said Deepak.
When asked whether he would also call Bala as a witness for his defamation suit against Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, Deepak said “yes”.
“Yes. It had never occurred to me before this, but now that you asked, yes, we definitely would like him to come as a witness to the suit,” said the carpet dealer.
Last night, Bala returned to Malaysia after almost five years of having mysteriously fled the country.
Upon his arrival at the airport, he immediately swore that the first statutory declaration (SD) he made in 2008, which implicated Najib in Altantuya’s murder, was the truth.
He claimed that “circumstances” had forced him to retract the allegations made in the first SD, and he would reveal the whole truth “inch by inch”.
Deepak had previously told the media that it was he who persuaded Bala to reverse the first SD, as a favour for Rosmah Mansor, Deepak’s close associate once and the wife of the prime minister.
But despite Deepak’s role in the affair, Bala told reporters last night that he would not actively seek collaboration with the businessman.
“[But] if he [Deepak] comes forward and wants to work with me, I am okay with it. But I won’t go looking for him,” Bala said.
Meanwhile, in a press statement today, Deepak said: “I urge PI Bala to divulge the names of the people involved and why it is that only employees of Najib and Rosmah were involved and on whose orders and ‘main reason’ did they commit this heinous crime on a pregnant Mongolian woman.”
“I also urge our former inspector-general of police [Musa Hassan] to confirm that Najib had called him and interfered in this murder investigation at that time…
“Bala has my complete support and prayers and I hope that the spirit of Altantuya can ‘rest in peace’ once the ‘real murderers’ are found guilty.”

PI Bala: Razak Baginda regretted refusing Altantuya US$500,000 commission

February 28, 2013
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 28 — Political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda allegedly regretted refusing paying slain Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu a US$500,000 (RM1.5 million) commission purportedly owed her for translation services in a government submarine deal, P. Balasubramaniam was reported telling a packed town hall here last night.
The former private investigator, hired by Abdul Razak to keep an eye on his one-time mistress, related the analyst saying so on November 7, 2006 while in a lift where the latter’s lawyer was also present, just half an hour before his arrest for abetting in the Mongolian’s gruesome murder.
“Boss, look here. What was my advice to you? Police report. You should have done the police report,” Balasubramaniam (picture) was quoted as saying last night by news portal Malaysiakini, in reply to Abdul Razak’s remark.
The ex-investigator, who returned home last Sunday after nearly five years in exile, was reported as giving a detailed recollection of the highly controversial events surrounding his two conflicting sworn statements over Altantuya’s 2006 murder and subsequent marathon trial that ended in Abdul Razak’s acquittal and two elite policemen being sentenced to the gallows.
Rumours of Abdul Razak’s imminent arrest had been circulating widely then, and according to Balasubramaniam, the analyst was busy with legal preparations should he be charged.
The ex-detective, popularly known as PI Bala who became famous following his explosive revelations on the 2006 murder, had decided to come out of hiding and return to participate in opposition Pakatan Rakyat’s (PR) campaign ahead of Election 2013, his lawyer Americk Sidhu Singh had told The Malaysian Insider last week.
Balasubramanim had first entered the public spotlight in 2008 for claims he made against top federal government personalities in his first statutory declaration (SD) on Altantuya’s brutal murder.
But when Balasubramaniam retracted the SD the following day and signed a new one where the names of these personalities were omitted, he found himself in an even deeper tangle, forcing him to flee the country.
A year later, in 2009, he reappeared in the limelight when he claimed that the second SD had been signed under duress and without his knowledge of its contents.
Balasubramaniam’s name again earned media attention recently following the emergence of Deepak Jaikishan, the controversial carpet dealer with close links to several prominent government and corporate personalities and who was purportedly involved in the second SD.






















PI Bala wows the crowd

KUALA LUMPUR: Support for P Balasubramaniam during his first public appearance following his return to Malaysia was nothing short of overwhelming.
Hundreds thronged the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (KLSCAH) last night to catch a glimps of the private investigator who implicated Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak in the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Organised by pro-opposition group Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM), the forum “Who Killed Altantuya?” was also graced by PKR Rembau division chief Badrul Hisham Shaharin (Chegubard), Cynthia Gabriel from human rights NGO Suaram and controversial cartoonist Zunar.
During the forum, Balasubramaniam shared his experience working for Abdul Razak Baginda by recounting his first statutory declaration (SD) in detail.
The crowd cheered whenever he mentioned Altantuya’s name, and jeered when he spoke of Najib.
Balasubramaniam then pledged his suport to Pakatan, and said he would “do anything” to see the opposition coalition come to power in the upcoming general election.
Despite welcoming the public to pose questions to Balasubramaniam, Chegubard ended the forum after the former finished his speech.
When approached by reporters, Chegubard said his group would be organising a press conference with Balasubramaniam “sometime soon”, but declined to say when.
Chegubard also said that three KLSCAH workers have been detained on the suspicion of drug use moments before the forum, but did not elaborate further.
On Sunday, Balasubramaniam returned to Malaysia and immediately declared that the first SD he made in 2008 on the murder of Altantuya was the truth.
Balasubramaniam alleged that Najib was involved in the murder of Altantuya and then Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan was asked to “take care” of the case for Najib.
However, he produced the SD the next day and retracted all his allegations against Najib.

Political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda apparently regretted not paying the US$500,000 in commission due to slain Mongolian Altantuya Shaaribuu claimed former private investigator P Balasubramaniam.
He recounted Razak as allegedly saying this just prior to his arrest in 2006.
Balasubramaniam, who was employed by Razak then, was giving a blow-by-blow account of the circumstances surrounding Altantuya's death during his first public appearance last night after fleeing the country nearly five years ago.
He said he was leaving the office of a lawyer identified as Puravelan, with Razak, in a lift at that time.
Newspapers were already speculating then about Razak (left) being arrested that day and the lawyer was busy preparing his clients for such an eventuality.
Upon hearing this, the private investigator supposedly told Razak, "Boss, look here. What was my advice to you? Police report. You should have done the police report."
Went against advice
Balasubramaniam explained to that Razak had engaged him to keep Altantuya at bay, but advised him to lodge a police report instead.
However, Razak purportedly declined to do so because "a VVIP was involved," who was later revealed to be then defence minister and now Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.
Altantuya was said to be demanding US$500,000 (RM1,550,750) and three air tickets to Mongolia from Razak at the time, supposedly the fee for her role in mediating the Scorpene submarine deal.
Balasubramaniam said Razak did end up being arrested on Nov 7, the day the conversation took place, just 30 minutes upon reaching his office at Wisma Lee Rubber, Kuala Lumpur after the meeting.
He was eventually charged and acquitted of allegedly abetting in Altantuya's murder, while two police Special Action Unit (UTK) officers were sentenced to death for allegedly shooting Altantuya and blasting her remains with military-grade explosives.
Some 1,000 persons crammed Kuala Lumpur and Selagor Chinese Assembly Hall's main hall last night to hear first-hand what Balasubramaniam had to say on the Mongolian's killing.
New revelations were few and far in between while Balasubramaniam often stumbled to find the right words and had to rely on a Powerpoint slide he had prepared since his return to recall some of the events.
Glued to their seats
Nevertheless, the audience remained glued to their seats for nearly two hours until around 11.30pm as Balasubramaniam recounted the events.
This included what had transpired between him and Razak from their introduction until the arrest, the circumstances surrounding this first statutory declaration implicating Najib in the murder and a second statutory declaration made under duress to retract it, and further attempts to bribe him to slander opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.
The audience appeared to be engaged by Balasubramaniam's version of the events, clapping and cheering at key points of his talk or whenever a prominent personality's name, like Najib, cropped up.
They also booed at a video of Najib denying any involvement in the incident that was screened play as part of the prelude to the talk.
Other speakers included Suaram secretariat member Cynthia Gabriel and the cartoonist Zulkiflee SM Anwar Ulhaque, better known as Zunar.
During the talk, Balasubramaniam mentioned that he was alone with the commissioner of oaths during the second statutory declaration.
When the talk's moderator Badrul Hisham Shaharin asked him about a lawyer supposedly involved in preparing the document, Balasubramaniam said he only knew of this through ‘hearsay' via businessperson Deepak Jaikishan, who had persuaded him to make the declaration.
"If you ask me, I don't know. I only heard the hearsay info because Deepak had already mentioned that it was Cecil Abraham (left)," he said, drawing cheers from the crowd.
He said his lawyer Americk Sidhu and human rights activist Haris Ibrahim had pressured the Bar Council to look into the allegation and its president Lim Chee Wee had asked him to give a statement.
"If everything goes right, Cecil Abraham's cover will be blown," he said.

























Nik Aziz swears by the Quran, Bala swears upon his Bhagavad Gita.




I want to write something on the briefing session given out by P Bala. He has given an oath upon a book he regards as his spiritual guide. I hope the UMNO foot soldiers would not make light Bala swearing upon his Bhagavad Gita, which Bala treats as his spiritual guidance.  The Bhagavad Gita's call for selfless action inspired many leaders of the Indian independence movement including Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who referred to the Gita as his "spiritual dictionary". So we have reason to believe that P Bala is as pious as the UMNO foot soldier who swears by his own spiritual guidance, whatever that might be. A few years ago it was Islam Hadhari- today its wasathiyah.Ibrahim Ali on the other hand, leader of Perkasa, swears on the name of Rohaya.
On his part, by making the sacrifices he is making and braving whatever possible risks, Bala has acted selflessly. 
But allow me to comment on something UMNO does that is opposite of selfless action. UMNO and BN are treating recipients of BR1M like chickens and cattle. Come feeding time, people will come and UMNO leaders scramble and trip over each other to be the ones giving out the money. The money is not theirs in the first place and the giving out should be handled by district offices and government officers. But UMNO wants people to think that it’s they who are giving out money and the act of giving gives UMNO leaders, especially Najib some amount of pleasure.
But the number of people receiving the money is a source of pride to Najib? 90% of the recipients are Malays- that gives najib as much pleasure as when his handlers were throwing bags of rice into an ocean of outreaching hands in Semenyih?  It’s not a source of pride we must inform him.
On the other hand, it’s a badge of shame. It serves to confirm that the Malays and other deprived beings in Malaysia have been marginalised. Yet Najib can speak eloquently about lets marginalize extremism. Yes let’s do- by kicking out UMNO which has marginalized the Malays and other poor from benefiting from the economic achievements of this country.
8.7 million Malays lived with a monthly income less that RM1500 grouping them under the sub-poor. Even to qualify as recipient of BR1M , requires a monthly income of RM3000. Imagine if the qualification is set at RM1500. How many millions and millions of the downtrodden would come at feeding time, thus giving Najib some sort of psychotic pleasure? Is he a deprived person or what?  Maybe Bala would like to present a copy of the Kamasutra to Najib.
There is a word describing such people who get high at the awareness of other people’s suffering. It’s known as schadenfreude which simply means deriving pleasure at the misfortune of others.
If not, how do you explain the great fanfare UMNO leaders get when giving out the money and making a spectacle about this. It’s not UMNO’s money. It probably increases the debt of the government. Remember that Najib is the most irresponsible finance minister that we have ever had- when he took over from Pak Lah , the cumulative public debt was RM250 billion, now its RM504billion. 
Bala’s briefing.
I went to Bala’s briefing session organized by SAMM. The talk was titled Siapa Arah bunuh Altantuya?  We can only know when there is retrial, bringing back Razak Baginda from his decadent sojourn in England. We can only know when Azhar and Sirul are once again put on the stand at a retrial. Then we must have a special trial to judge the actions and possible malfeasance of the trial judge and the prosecution team from possible subversion of justice.
When Bala took the stage at The Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall in Kg Atap, he looked fatigued to me. He has lost a lot of sleep since the last two days, structuring his briefing he says.
Admittedly I stayed for half of the session avoiding the account on SD1 and SD2 which are quite technical. It’s the narrative on the adventures of Altantuya, Shirul and Azhar and RB that interests me.
The most interesting part to me was the exchanges that took place at a  meeting between Razak Baginda(RB) and Bala when the former wanted to pay Bala for his security and surveillance services. That was after Altantuya was taken into custody by Azhar and Sirul and Bala’s services in tailing Altantuya were regarded completed.
RB asked Bala, does Bala know where Altantuya is now? Being an ex-policeman (SB) Bala could only reply that females are held at Brickfilelds, Travers or at a special lockup facilities of the SB. RB did not give any answer by smile satisfactorily. My problems are over, RB said. Bala thought nothing more of the eerie smile RB gave.
To me that is quite significant. It appears to suggest that RB knew where Altantuya was- in police custody. Razak Baginda thought his problems were over, until the world knows that the Mongolian beauty was blown to pieces. Something must have happened between the time RB thought his problems were over, during Altantuya’s confinement and eventual murder. A string of events and actions by some other people took place that took out RB’s involvement in the murder. Someone gave the orders to murder Alatntuya. Razak wasn’t the one who did that- somebody more powerful than he and one who is familiar with police work did. That is why we must have a retrial.
RB must have thought that once the police took over, his problems were over. It wasn’t to be a simple case of offer and acceptance. Having posted the letter and getting receipt acknowledgment of the letter, did not free Razak after all.
How did the whole murderous affair implicate Najib? Now, on a personal basis, I would be pretty sure Najib had nothing to do with the actual murder of Altantuya. But he may be an accessory to the whole thing by providing the setting and opportunity that led to the murder of the Mongolian beauty whom UMNO people described as a world class prostitute. That world class prostitute may have been shared between RB and NR.
When Bala asked RB why the importance of Altantuya? RB replied that he has been tasked to look after Altantuya on behalf of a VVIP. The identity wasn’t known yet.
Only when Bala was asked to join RB at a lawyer’s office at the 32nd Floor at Bangunan UOA, did the identity of the VVIP become known. By that time, the police were already on the trail of possible suspects in the murder of Altantuya. Bala was already called in to assist in identifying Sirul and Azhar. It wasn’t long before all other suspects were to be taken in.
As RB was insisting that there are no reasons why he should be made to account for the disappearance of Altantuya, he stated that he is waiting for a response from the said VVIP. He told Bala and the lawyer, that he has sent a text message to this VVIP two days earlier but hasn’t got a response yet.
As he was finishing off his story as to why he should not be called in to account for the disappearance of his Altantuya, a sms text came through.  After looking at the text, he showed the sms message to both Bala and the lawyer. The text said- be cool, I am meeting the IGP at 11 this morning. Something like that.
The identity of the VVIP? Najib Razak, who was the DPM then.  Now, why should NR, being DPM busies himself with a personal problem faced by Razak Baginda? Altantuya has already declared RB who works at Bangunan Getah Asli, Ampang is her husband.

"The Sound of Silence" 
(cover version by Najib Razak & Rosmah Mansor)

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sounds of silence

[Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel, 1964]
















P Bala on the Trail for Justice




The significance of P Bala’s briefing on the 27th of February can be reduced to a single conclusion- the execution of Altantuya a daughter of one set of parents, is traceable right to the doors of Najib’s house. For the thousands attending Bala’s revelations, (not just a thousand) the hall itself was full to the brim- they wanted to hear and look at Bala. Bala looked fatigued not nervous. He has just come back from India and had spent the last two days drafting out a structure to deliver his revelations. They came to confirm what they believed in their hearts of hearts – that somehow, Najib Razak must be called up to account.
The trail now leads suspiciously to the PM and to the circle of people close to him- whether it’s Musa Safri his ADC or Nasir Safar. When RB asked Bala whether the latter knows where Altantuya was that day- he was actually expressing relief. How so? He was relieved that the boss ( RB of course knows full well who he is ) had taken over his problem. He was also relieved because someone more powerful and bigger than him has taken over. He was therefore justifiably happy and pleased.
From that day onwards, RB can be said to have severed any responsibility over Altantuya. The responsibility at that point in time passed on to the VVIP who had his battalion of minders do his bidding. The VVIP therefore owes a duty of care to Altantuya who had by then been taken into custody by the two policemen. Razak assumed that his problems were over not knowing on that fateful day, Altantuya was already executed. Execution seems to be the better word for it- the intent to kill was obvious. After being shot, she was bombed with the explosives  C4.
Now, access to C4 need not be overplayed. Getting the substance does not require the signature of the PM- has he got nothing better to do? Everyone in the quarry industry knows that you go to the police station and apply for the procurement of the material stating the purpose for is usage, you get the substance. No PM’s permission is required. The PM isn’t a store keeper.
The more interesting thing to suggest is the ease by which the two policemen got the material. We can look at the records and discover whether the 2 policemen sought permission from the Police to get the material. They could have given any reasons to get them and being policemen themselves, they could get them easily. So there was no mystery there.
Now once RB felt that his responsibility over Altantuya was severed, our attention and focus must now be directed at the people responsible for planning  and giving orders to the two policemen to execute Altantuya.
That is the interesting part in Bala’s expose. We are interested in analysing the behaviour of RB. On the whole, it would suggest that he indeed has nothing to do with the execution of Altantuya.
That was why when he was met by Bala at a lawyer’s ( Puravalan) office at the UOA building, he insisted that he had no cause to account for the whereabouts of Altantuya. She had been taken out of his responsibility. That was also why he had sent an SOS message to the VVIP whom we later discovered to be the then DPM and now the PM. He may have asked and justifiably so- why should he answer any questions when the VVIP had taken over?
Why would RB find cause to send the sms to the then DPM unless of course the then DPM had some links to Altantuya. After all by RB’s own admission, he serves as minder over Altantuya on behalf of the VVIP.
We should then establish whether there was a sexual relationship between RB and Altantuya. There are now whispers that Altantuya was entrusted into RB’s hands because RB is useless in that department and can’t possibly sow his oats and damaged the prized property-in spite of being described as a prostitute. He was a mere trustee on behalf of the VVIP. The VVIP therefore has no cause to send a sms text to RB asking him to be cool as matters are being sorted out unless he was the one that would rightly be held accountable.
Bala’s revelations will be good material to besiege the PM and UMNO. Why are we not surprised that not one single UMNO bahagian has come out declaring they are solidly behind the UMNO president. Indeed, as I talked to my UMNO friends, their stand is, this is a private matter that the PM must sort out himself.  Having made the bed, the VVIP must now lie on it. Let Bala prepare the comforter and pillows. 
 Sain baina uu, ta? that's greetings in the Mongolian Language. 

Lawyers push for answers on Bala’s second statement

BY CLARA CHOOI
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
March 08, 2013
Lim said the motion was filed yesterday. – File picKUALA LUMPUR, March 8 — A group of 14 lawyers have filed a motion to the Malaysian Bar calling for an Independent Investigation Committee to be set up to uncover the details surrounding former private investigator P. Balasubramaniam’s two sworn statements on the 2006 Altantuya Shaariibuu murder.
Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee confirmed with The Malaysian Insider this evening that the motion was filed yesterday, and said its contents will be debated during the Malaysian Bar’s annual general meeting this March 16.
“Yes, it must be debated. I will respond to the matter during the AGM,” the outgoing council president said.
He said the council’s probe on Balasubramaniam’s two statutory declarations (SDs) is still ongoing, but noted that businessman Deepak Jaikishan, who has admitted to knowing the lawyer who drafted the contentious second SD, had declined to help with the investigation.
“Yes, he said he will only speak with the council after March 16,” Lim said.
The Bar Council had announced in January that was investigating the identity of the lawyers and possible misconduct in the drafting of Balasubramaniam’s second SD, which the former private eye has said was signed under duress.
Deepak recently admitted he had been the one who helped in getting Balasubramaniam to repudiate his earlier statutory declaration on the matter, including getting two lawyers to draft the new statement.
The identities of the two lawyers were never made known, however, as Deepak said they had cold feet before a press conference to publicise the sworn statement.
In a recent interview, however, Deepak reportedly exposed the name of one of the lawyers, prompting calls on the Bar Council to investigate the possibility of professional misconduct against the lawyer for drafting an SD that was based on allegedly false information.
Former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) adviser, Tan Sri Robert Phang, also publicly named renowned lawyer Tan Sri Cecil Abraham as one of those who drafted the document.
Noting the events surrounding the two SDs, the group of 14 lawyers said in their motion notice that should Deepak’s and Balasubramaniam’s claims prove true, the preparation of the second SD “may amount to acts of criminality under the Penal Code including  perjury, giving false information regarding an offence and obstruction of justice under Part XI of the Penal Code”.
“Further, those involved in the purported scheme to coerce Bala to retract SD1 may have engaged in abuse of power and corrupt practices punishable under the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009.
“In this, the advocate and solicitor(s) concerned may have committed criminal offences or aided and abetted the commission of criminal offences. In doing so, they would have brought the legal profession into disrepute,” the motion said.
The lawyers slammed the council for purportedly choosing to take “no or minimal steps” in addressing the matter to protect the reputation and image of Bar members.
Citing clauses in the Legal Profession Act 1976, the lawyers said the Bar was duty-bound to “uphold the cause of justice without regard to its own interests or that of its members, uninfluenced by fear or favour, and is further to maintain the high standards of conduct of the profession and the practice of law by its members.”
The lawyers accused the council of permitting itself to be viewed as reluctant to probe the issue, singling out Lim for the slight by pointing out that the council president was once quoted in the media as charaterising Deepak as being “someone whose own background is cause for concern”.















PI Bala: I wasn’t promised RM700,000

Anisah Shukry | March 11, 2013
Raja Petra Kamarudin is writing bullshit stories, says private investigator P Balasubramaniam.
PETALING JAYA: Private investigator P Balasubramaniam swears he was not promised payment for the 2008 statutory declaration (SD) linking Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to the murder of Altantuya Shaaribuu.
Bala said this in response to claims by blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin that Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim had personally promised the private investigator RM700,000 if he agreed to come up with the first SD by July 1, 2008.
Citing a Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) source, Raja Petra had said Anwar wanted the SD to implicate Najib, who was then defence minister, so that his Sept 16 plan of becoming prime minister would succeed.
“I swear on my mother, I do not know anything about this RM700,000. All these accusations against me are bullshit,” Bala told FMT today.
“In fact, I had only met Anwar twice: once in 1994, when I was on official duty, and the second was the day I signed my first SD during the [July 3, 2008] press conference. I never met him again afterwards, either.”
Bala stressed that the question of money never came up in his preparation of the first SD, denying even the RM100,000 he allegedly received from lawyer Puravelan.
“My purpose has always been the truth, never money. What can I do with money? I can’t bring it to my grave,” he said.
But Raja Petra had claimed that Bala had contacted businessman Deepak Jaikishan after he did not receive the full payment of the RM700,000 – an encounter that eventually led to the second SD, which reversed all claims made in the first one.
Responding to this, Bala said: “Raja Petra has nothing to write about, so he comes up with bullshit. He’s my friend, but I don’t know how to advise him.”
He conceded that he had met with Deepak, but reiterated that the ensuing second SD was done out of duress.
“I changed my statement out of duress, but then when Najib became prime minister in 2009, I openly said what happened to me, and my statement has been consistent since then.”
Bala also admitted to having received payment from Deepak after making the second SD, and said that the money had been used for travel, food expenses as well as the education of his children.
Not paid by PKR
Meanwhile, Bala dismissed rumours that his return to Malaysia was paid for by PKR, whom he had pledged support for.
“The flight back to Malaysia was my own money, because some of the money Deepak gave me, I kept. Nobody paid for my trip,” he said.
“I’m not a Pakatan [Rakyat] member. I’m not affiliated with any party in the coalition, not with DAP, PKR or PAS. But I support them because my heart says Malaysia needs change.”

The Deepak-Bala marriage: in Deepak’s own words



That afternoon, Rosmah called Deepak regarding the SD matter and the discussion got to Bala. Deepak told Rosmah what he had found out from Suresh and she asked Deepak to try and help to resolve the attempt to frame her husband with the murder case. Deepak told Rosmah he will speak to Bala directly and get a true picture of the entire events and how this thing can be resolved.
THE CORRIDORS OF POWER
Raja Petra Kamarudin
Deepak Jaikishan was called to the MACC office a few times. This is already public knowledge and is no secret. What is still a secret, though, is what did Deepak tell the MACC? Until today we have not been given the gist of Deepak’s statement. And what we are also not being told is why after more than a month still no action is being taken.
From what we know, based on the newspaper reports, Deepak’s first couple of visits to the MACC office came to naught. Deepak told the MACC that he was ‘not yet ready’ to give his statement and went home, promising to return another day. Finally, on 25th January 2013, Deepak gave his statement to the MACC. However, until now, no one knows what he told the MACC. Neither Deepak nor the MACC are talking.
We are still trying to get our hands on a copy of the MACC report, and there is a strong possibility that that may happen very soon. In the meantime, while we try to get our hands on that report, maybe we can share with you the gist of what, according to our Deep Throat, Deepak told the MACC. Let us see whether this part of Deepak’s story is going to appear in his ‘official statement’.
What our Deep Throat said appears consistent with what Bala said in his exposé at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (KLSCAH) on 27th February 2013 plus what he related in his Singapore interview (which you can see on YouTube) and in the London press conference earlier. It is also consistent with Deepak’s interviews with Malaysiakini and Free Malaysia Today.
The only part that remains hazy is: did Bala contact Deepak or did Deepak contact Bala that resulted in the meeting in Rawang that same evening that the first SD was released? Both claim that ‘the other person’ initiated the meeting. Nevertheless, the rest of the story appears consistent -- except for the part that Bala was allegedly promised RM700,000 by M. Puravalen as payment for the first SD, which Bala has thus far never mentioned but which Deepak says did happen.
Anyway, read what our Deep Throat has to say about the matter.
*****************************************
In October 2006, Bala was in Razak’s office at the time when they received a phone call from Puravalen (picture above). Puravalen said he had something very urgent to discuss with Razak concerning Altantuya. Razak then agreed to meet Puravalen who arrived not long after that.
Puravalen told Razak that the police were about to arrest him (Razak) for the murder of Altantuya. Razak suddenly went pale and started to panic.
Puravalen told Razak not to worry and that he will handle this matter provided that he (Razak) agreed that he (Puravalen) will act for him as his lawyer. Later Razak’s family found out that Puravalen was actually linked to Kalimullah and was feeding information to the ‘other side’ (Karpal Singh included) through Kalimullah. Razak’s family suspected that Puravalen, who is very close to Sivarasa, was trying to fix up Razak so they decided to sack Puravalen and replace him with Shafee Abdullah.
In July 2008, Puravalen was the one who introduced Bala to Sivarasa and Americk. Sivarasa then arranged for Bala to meet DSAI to discuss signing a SD to directly implicate Najib and Rosmah to Altantuya’s murder. Bala met DSAI twice, the first time a few days before the SD was signed and the second time on the SD day itself wherein he sat beside DSAI and gave his PC flanked by his lawyer.
The first time Puravalen brought Bala to meet DSAI, he was promised RM700,000.00 if he agreed to come up with the SD by 1st July 2008. DSAI had agreed to pay the RM700,000.00 through Puravalen and the payment was to be made in two stages -- Part A, RM200,000.00, immediately and Part B, RM500,000.00, after the PC. On 1st July 2008, Bala made the SD and proceeded to conduct the PC on 3rd July 2008, organised by DSAI and his lawyers at the PKR HQ.
Unfortunately for Bala, after the PC, Puravalen only paid him RM100,000.00 although he had received RM200,000.00 from DSAI. Puravalen told Bala that DSAI had instructed for the balance to be paid after a few days. The balance RM500,000 Puravalen pocketed all to himself without Bala knowing. This angered Bala and he tried to contact DSAI through his lawyer, Americk, and other people he knew in PKR such as Sivarasa. But DSAI never responded at all to him because DSAI believed that Bala was fully paid.
At the same time, Bala started getting calls from the Brickfields Police Station and he became worried that the police will lock him up again like the last time during the Altantuya case. He started to panic as DSAI was not responding to him and the lawyer had just cheated him of his only income to enable him and his family to leave Malaysia. Bala doesn’t know that Puravalen cheated him.
Bala, the next day after waiting for DSAI or his lawyer to call him, realised that he had been cheated of his promised money by DSAI and the lawyers. He then contacted Deepak through a mutual friend, Suresh, and asked to meet Deepak so that he could relate what had happened. Deepak informed Suresh that he will first discuss this matter with Rosmah and get back to him ASAP.
 
That afternoon, Rosmah called Deepak regarding the SD matter and the discussion got to Bala. Deepak told Rosmah what he had found out from Suresh and she asked Deepak to try and help to resolve the attempt to frame her husband with the murder case. Deepak told Rosmah he will speak to Bala directly and get a true picture of the entire events and how this thing can be resolved. Deepak spoke to Bala on the phone number given by Suresh and asked him if he was prepared to tell the truth of about SD conspiracy, which was now being exploited as a political asset by Najib’s competitors.
However, Bala was reluctant to do so as he said he didn’t want to trust any politicians as DSAI had cheated him on the amount of money promised and at the same time he was worried that Najib’s people were going to get him arrested again like during the Razak Baginda case. Deepak told Bala don’t worry because if he was willing to tell the truth he will be protected and will not be harassed by the police. He can get this assurance.
After a long chat, Bala was still unconvinced and told Deepak he will call back later. Deepak then called Rosmah and reported the entire conversation to her. She then told Deepak to come to the Putrajaya house and meet her husband to explain all the matters. Deepak went to Putrajaya, Sri Satria, and met Najib and Rosmah on the first floor lounge and detailed his conversation with Bala. Najib asked Deepak to convey to Bala that it was important that he speak the truth and tell about RM700,000 promise by DSAI.
The reason DSAI had asked Bala to make the SD was because to stop Najib from taking over PM post from Pak Lah and DSAI informed Bala that he needed Najib and Rosmah to be directly implicated. The timing was perfect and DSAI wanted this whole thing to implicate Najib and Rosmah to prevent him from becoming PM and thus allowing him to succeed with his September 16th plan to get the MPs in Sabah to defect so that he could become PM as they were demoralised at that time under PM Badawi’s administration.
Deepak met Bala in Rawang at about 9pm and they had a long discussion about the entire affair involving the SD and his experience during the time he was employed by Razak Baginda. The next day Bala signed his second SD to contradict the first SD that he had signed.

PI Bala to take it easy after doctors find 3 blocked arteries


The discovery that he has three clogged arteries in his heart has forced former private eye P Balasubramaniam to suspend his participation in the general election campaign for Pakatan Rakyat.
PI Bala, as he is better known, has been warded for treatment at a private hospital in Selangor since March 3.
He first experienced chest pains while campaigning in Kota Bharu on March 1.
Although he had felt better after a painkilling injection then, he experienced more pain on his way back from Kelantan, he told Malaysiakini yesterday.
Bala said he had shrugged it off and gone on to another speaking engagement in Damansara, Selangor, on March 2 but that he had felt worse that night.
"I was very tired. I was sleeping, but early (the next) morning at about 5, I couldn't breathe. If I (sat up, I could breathe) okay, if I (lay) down I (couldn’t)," he related, saying he decided to go for a check up at the hospital.
Since his return from Chennai, India, late last month, Bala has been hitting the ground, campaigning for Pakatan.
His role has been to explain what he knows about the alleged involvement of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and those close to Najib in the events surrounding the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Najib himself has strenuously denied any such involvement.
Bala came to prominence after filing two contradictory statutory declarations relating to Altantuya’s murder and then fleeing the country, ostensibly for his own safety.
Members of his family, who had flown in to visit him, were in the hospital room with him.
Bala, who sported a slightly unkempt beard, appeared to be high spirits despite his weak physical condition.
"(When) the doctor (says) one part of your heart has stopped beating, what would you feel?" he asked, still managing to flash a smile.
He pledged to continue serving in Pakatan's GE13 campaign if he was able to.
"No, no, this is not going to stop me from campaigning. I am definitely going to come back... This is a small matter," he said.
However, Bala was practical enough to concede that, if there were health complications, he will not be able to do so.
He has already missed speaking engagements in Johor Bharu on March 6 and in Sabah on March 9.
Silver lining
Due to be discharged today, Bala will return to hospital for a follow-up check after a week on medication to reduce clotting in his veins.
His doctor will then decide if he needs to undergo stenting or open heart bypass surgery to correct his condition.
If Bala only requires stenting - a procedure to introduce mesh 'tubes' to open up his clogged veins via small incisions - he may be able to return to campaigning.
If a heart bypass is required, the recovery time could stretch beyond the date of the GE, which must be held by June 28.
Bala said he had just become comfortable with talking to a mass audience after his maiden appearance at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall on Feb 28.
He believes that the people’s support for Pakatan is stronger than ever and will lead to its electoral victory.
The doughty former police Special Branch officer also sees a silver lining in this grey episode.
"This is good. If I didn't come back for the campaign, I might not have known (about my heart condition). I might have stayed in India. I might have died silently."
Tomorrow: 'Altantuya doesn't want me to die yet'














PI Bala to take a break after heart attack

Anisah Shukry | March 12, 2013
The private investigator will resume his ceramah and campaign after concentrating on his health for at least a month.
PETALING JAYA: Private investigator P Balasubramaniam said today he would rest for at least a month following last week’s mild heart attack, putting the breaks on the opposition’s plans for his nationwide ceramah before the 13th general election.
Balasubramaniam told FMT he has been warded at the Sime Darby Medical Centre, Subang Jaya, since March 5, and will be discharged today.
However, he said he may still have to undergo major heart surgery.
“It was a sudden, mild attack, and the doctors told me that three of my vessels are blocked, so I may have to go for a major operation. This Friday the doctors will redo the tests on me and decide whether I have to undergo heart operation or just a stenting,” Balasubramaniam said today.
(A stenting is a procedure whereby a tiny tube is placed into an artery to hold it open.)
“Now they are allowing me to go back, do some exercise, they have given me some medicine. So for the time being, I am going to concentrate on my health, for at least a month. After that I will go back for ceramah.”
Balasubramaniam hit the headlines in 2008 when he made a statutory declaration (SD) linking Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and wife Rosmah Mansor to Altantuya Shaariibu’s murder, only to retract the SD a day later. After fleeing the country, he claimed the retraction was made under duress and that he stood by his first SD.
Balasubramaniam returned to Malaysia late last month pledging to campaign for the opposition as well as give nationwide ceramah on Najib and Rosmah’s alleged role in Altantantuya’s murder – a move that could put a serious dent on the current Barisn Nasional administration.
But with the general election expected to be called during mid-April, it is now unlikely that Balasubramaniam will be able to continue on his ceramah circuit until after the polls are over.
Badrul Hisham Shaharin, the president of pro-PKR group Solidarity Anak Muda Malaysia, which is organising Balasubramaniam’s series of ceramah, had not ruled out the possibility that the private investigator was a victim of black magic.
“Some friends said this is the work of black magic. I don’t know. They [Balasubramaniam’s enemies] are capable of anything. What matters is that we leave it to God,” Badrul, popularly known as Chegubard, had reportedly told PKR organ Keadilan Daily last week.
But Balasubramaniam dismissed this, saying his inactive lifestyle was to blame for the heart attack.
“I don’t believe in [black magic]. I believe in God only, and I know God is with me, that’s why I am able to get treatment, and that’s why I didn’t collapse when I first felt the symptoms while giving a ceramah in Kelantan.
“I haven’t been exercising, and that’s what caused the heart attack,” he admitted. “I was active when I was young, but after I became a policeman, then a private investigator, I didn’t exercise, so all this happened.”
Relating the incident when he first suffered the heart attack, Balasubramaniam said: “I came back from a ceramah in Sungai Buloh on March 4, and that night, I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t go to sleep. From 2am to 6am, I just sat there.
“The next morning, I went to hospital and straight away I was given medication. So far, so good. My doctor says I am improving a lot,” he said.
Badrul, who had previously said Balasubramaniam would continue campaigning in the run-up to national polls, could not be reached immediately for comment.
















Bar AGM to discuss Bala’s SD2

G Vinod | March 13, 2013
If passed, the motion will allow the Bar to establish an independent panel to probe the facts and circumstances related to the preparation and execution of the SD.
PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Bar is to discuss the possibility of establishing an independent investigation committee to probe private investigator P Balasubramaniam’s second statutory declaration (SD) this Saturday.
The motion, tabled by Wan Hidayati Nadirah Wan Ahmad Nasir and seconded by 12 other lawyers, will be debated at the Bar’s 67th AGM at the Renaissance Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
Last year, carpet trader Deepak Jaikishen revealed that he was one of the key persons involved in getting Balasubramaniam to retract his first SD in July 1, 2008.
The first SD implicated Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor in the death of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu. However, he omitted the duo’s involvement in the second SD.
Deepak also alleged that a “Tan Sri” lawyer was involved in preparing Bala’s second SD.
Later, former MACC advisory panel member Robert Phang alleged that the “Tan Sri” lawyer was Cecil Abraham, who currently sits in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) panel.
If the motion is passed on Saturday, the committee would be allowed to enquire into the facts and circumstances relating to the preparation and execution of the SD by Bala.
Among other issues that will be discussed at the AGM are the death penalty and the e-filing system practised in courts.

PI Bala wows the crowd

PI Balasubramaniam captivates the audience in his first public experience.
VIDEO INSIDE
KUALA LUMPUR: Support for P Balasubramaniam during his first public appearance following his return to Malaysia was nothing short of overwhelming.
Hundreds thronged the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (KLSCAH) last night to catch a glimps of the private investigator who implicated Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak in the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Organised by pro-opposition group Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM), the forum “Who Killed Altantuya?” was also graced by PKR Rembau division chief Badrul Hisham Shaharin (Chegubard), Cynthia Gabriel from human rights NGO Suaram and controversial cartoonist Zunar.
During the forum, Balasubramaniam shared his experience working for Abdul Razak Baginda by recounting his first statutory declaration (SD) in detail.
The crowd cheered whenever he mentioned Altantuya’s name, and jeered when he spoke of Najib.
Balasubramaniam then pledged his suport to Pakatan, and said he would “do anything” to see the opposition coalition come to power in the upcoming general election.
Despite welcoming the public to pose questions to Balasubramaniam, Chegubard ended the forum after the former finished his speech.
When approached by reporters, Chegubard said his group would be organising a press conference with Balasubramaniam “sometime soon”, but declined to say when.
Chegubard also said that three KLSCAH workers have been detained on the suspicion of drug use moments before the forum, but did not elaborate further.
On Sunday, Balasubramaniam returned to Malaysia and immediately declared that the first SD he made in 2008 on the murder of Altantuya was the truth.
Balasubramaniam alleged that Najib was involved in the murder of Altantuya and then Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan was asked to “take care” of the case for Najib.
However, he produced the SD the next day and retracted all his allegations against Najib.
