Najib denied he ever had a sexual relationship with her, or had conspired to cover up her murder, allegations made on Thursday by P. Balasubramaniam, a private detective who was working for Abdul Razak at the time of the murder. Balasubramanian issued a legal deposition on Friday saying he was retracting "the entire contents" of his earlier statement, which was made "under duress" The flurry of accusations and denials are stemming from a high-stakes battle for power in Malaysia, featuring mud-flying allegations about sex, lies, murder and sodomy.-Reuters
Lets take a step back and see the big picture....
1. Balasubramaniam comes out with a SD that ties in Najib to Altantuya and accused Najib to be sexually involved with Mongolian hottie.
2. Balasubramaniam comes out later and retracts the part which links Najib to Altantuya and claims the earlier SD was made under duress,but never mention by whom,but probably implying the opposition camp.
3. Balasubramaniam has a choice not to make the SD in the first place if he thinks its life threatening. But to say that he made it under duress is ludicrous coz the folks in the oppositions are not in a position of power or got that money to exercise that sort of pressure on or pay him "wang ehsan" for his services.
4. The more likely story is that Balasubramaniam was forced to make the retraction under duress by Najib and his goons. Najib, the AG and the IGP are the ones with the power and means to excercise the duress on him. They even have the loot to pay so that Balasubramaniam can live happily for 3 generations.
5. By virtue of the position they hold, can they be trusted to be impartial? The Balasubramaniam episode warrants what power and arrogance can do to the ordinary folks. If Balasubramaniam refused to retract, he will lose his PI licence, his family will be in danger,the children will be denied scholarships and so on..... In all life will be a miserable one for him. What choice Balasubramaniam has then?
6.The poor Mongolian girl just "mati katak". The court drama is well scripted while the actors played their roles to confuse the audience, ultimately they want to audience to believe that there are no substantial evidences for them to proceed further.In the end the culprits will be holidaying in Hawaii instead of Sungai Buloh. Read here and here. Is this perjury?
