Once I saw a video clip showing Americk Singh, the lawyer for Balasubramaniam of the double Statutory Declarations fame or if you like, notoriety. This was during the early days of Bala's Stat Decs.
Americk Singh assured everyone listening that he was completely ‘neutral’ in the ‘Najib f* Altantuyaa’ Stat Dec, and was only acting as the lawyer for Bala.
Then next, in November 2009, I read of his accusation in Malaysiakini Balasubramaniam's lawyer linked Najib to Bala's disappearance - wow!
Four days later Malaysiakini posted Bala's SD - Americk Sidhu clears Anwar Ibrahim from involvement.
Mr Singh stated: “… Anwar had nothing to do with the release of the first SD except to deliver a speech prior to the press conference at the PKR headquarters last July. I have had no communication with Anwar at all, and neither has he or any PKR member tried to contact me.”
I then wrote that I was greatly comforted by Americk’s assertion.
But what had puzzled me a tad, just a wee tad mind you, was that despite having no communication with Anwar or any PKR member, Americk was able to further assert that “… Many people think Anwar Ibrahim is behind all this. That is absolutely untrue. Anwar has no idea about this whole episode except what he may have read in the blogs and on Malaysiakini.”
Well, WTF did/do we non-lawyers know anyway!
Now, Mr ‘Neutral’ has arranged for a cost-free trip for MACC to fly to London to meet Bala. How kind of Mr Americk Singh! For more, see Malaysiakini MACC gets all-expense paid London date with Bala
Just in case you can’t remember who Mr Americk Singh Sidhu is, read my post Saiful sodomized? Bala sodomized!.
I had then written (extracts): He [Bala] was advised by his lawyer to report to the police station, as summoned, but unaccompanied by his own lawyer.
Indeed, where was his lawyer? Why didn’t he accompany Bala to the police station?
Yes, this was the guy who allowed his client Balasubramaniam, immediately after making the most damning Stat Dec in Malaysian public history against the powerful DPM of Malaysia, to report to a police station ALONE when every Malaysian knows that the most dangerous place in Malaysia was/has been/is the police station.
