Balasubramaniam’s statutory declaration was affirmed before commissioner of oaths Zainal Abidin Muhayat, bearing an address that has been traced to Zul Rafique & Partners – a pro-establishment law firm owned by Zulkifly Rafique who is Federal Territories minister Zulhasnan Rafique’s brother.

Balasubramaniam, at the press conference yesterday where PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim was also present, said that he had heard from Abdul Razak of the links between Najib and Altantuya.

He revealed that Najib had also informed Abdul Razak that Musa Hassan would ‘take care’ of the murder case which implicated the political analyst.

He further revealed that his evidence linking Najib to the murdered Mongolian was removed by the police and prosecutors during the murder trial – a move seen to protect the deputy premier.

anwar ibrahim press conference 030708 02Balasubramaniam, who is a former special branch personnel, was hired by Abdul Razak to deal with Altantuya in 2006 when she started ‘harassing’ thim.

The private investigator had said that he made the July 1 statutory declaration that implicates Najib because the prosecution wrapped up their case against Abdul Razak without raising his revelations.

Balasubramaniam, who was the first prosecution witness in the trial, was not asked about Altantuya’s connection with Najib when the hearings began in June last year.

Abdul Razak and two special action force officers – Sirul Azhar Umar and Azilah Hadri – are currently being tried for the Mongolian’s murder.

Attempts to contact Balasubramaniam and Arulampalam for more information surrounding the new statutory declaration has been unsuccessful.

However, the lawyer’s office clarified that “Arulampalam does not represent Balasubramaniam, but was just his representative.”

Police have some explaining to do

Veteran opposition leader Lim Kit Siang said police must explain their involvement in the case, after Balasubramanian’s lawyer said the about-face came after he was summoned to speak to police.

Lim said the whole affair “can only plunge national and international confidence in the integrity, credibility and legitimacy of the Abdullah administration to a new nadir”.

The political crisis could escalate on Sunday when Anwar’s Pakatan Rakyat is pushing ahead with a major demonstration against a recent fuel price hike, despite a police ban and fears authorities may use force.

“We call on Malaysians who support the movement for a more just and transparent government to join this Sunday’s peaceful gathering. We also call upon Malaysians not to be influenced by outside provocation,” Anwar said.

The 60-year-old opposition leader – who has said he has the numbers to oust the government with the help of defecting lawmakers – has promised to slash fuel prices if he comes to power.

Anwar’s PKR said that two youth members were arrested today for distributing pamphlets promoting the protest, and condemned the move as an act of intimidation.
