“Bala left for fish head curry in Brickfields. He had a friendly chat with an ASP who wanted to congratulate him on his first SD”. The the next day…he made a new one. Read more @ Anil Netto.
Earlier I said:
It seems everyone’s lying, and at the end of the day you don’t know which LIAR is worst.
I am of course referring to P. Balasubramaniam who now retracts his earlier statement. His new statutory declaration says that he was forced to sign it under duress.
He was present at Anwar Ibrahim’s press conference. He was teary-eyed, but he should have said something.
Who forced him to lie? This must be the most important question now.
In his new SD, Bala de-implicates Najib’s link with Altantuya Shariibuu. He has even changed the lawyer who represented him earlier.
There would be countless theories to say that Bala is a pathological liar himself. Or that he had been forced to change his statement. Or perhaps, someone had used him to make Anwar look like a fool?
Because Najib said last night that Bala had lied in court and he leaves it to the police to deal with it.
And if that is not a threat, what is?
But whatever it is, no one would ever believe Bala again.
And his role as witness in the Altantuya trials must be striked out. In any case, there should be a mistrial. And Altantuya’s case handed over to an independent justice body for a re-trial.
This is only fair and might even redeem Malaysia’s deteriorating name in the eyes of the world.
Perhaps, the lawyers among us can shed some light?
Bala’s first SD had done a great deal of damage to Najib. He’s about turn has done even more.
Who will trust Najib again?
