- Malay saying
(kaytee's translation: when elephants are screwing each other, the mousedeer foolish enough to be caught in the middle gets sodomized)
On Thursday the ‘world’s greatest person’ held a press conference for his Majestic Magnificence to pontificate on the Explosive claims linking Najib to Altantuya.
As reported by Malaysiakini, the man who signed that damning Statutory Declaration (later withdrawn) was Balasubramaniam, now a household name in Malaysia ... and on the X-files.
I recall that when Bala made that initial Stat Dec, he was challenged on why he had signed the police statement about the Altantuyaa murder but which did not contain details that implicated Najib, yet had since come out with such a earth-shaking revelation about the DPM (in the initial Stat Dec, albeit in hearsay fashion).
Bala confessed that he had signed the police statement under duress.
In the Malaysiakini report he said he had given information on Najib to the police when they took his statement but was surprised that all mention of Najib were removed from the police statement. He claimed that he reluctantly signed that statement under duress.
Balasubramaniam explained he was held in the police lock-up twice during the investigation into the murder - the first time for five days, the second, seven days.
He lamented: “If you have experience in the cell, you will definitely sign the statement. I wanted to go out, I have three children.”
Surely all of us can sympathise with that – I wouldn’t dare dream of boasting to be a brave hero, more so for a man like Bala who has responsibility towards a family comprising 3 children.
But then …
Indeed but then … he has subsequently, strangely and bravely came up with that Stat Dec damning Najib.
Noticeable at the press conference in the prominent seat was of course Anwar Ibrahim, nemesis of Najib.
I find it utterly strange and inconsistent that for a family man who was scared of the police because of his responsibility towards his 3 children (and we can understand this), he suddenly became ‘brave’ enough to verbally slaughter the DPM of the nation (this change of his attitude we still cannot come to grips with).
So … what has caused Balasubramaniam to change his mind?
Was it his conscience?
Was it the inspiring redoubtable magnificent Anwar Ibrahim?
Did he then go look for a lawyer to help him with that born-again conscience to come up with a Stat Dec?
I am visualizing a scenario where he said to his found lawyer Mr Americk Singh Sidhu: “Mr Singh. This is what I want you to draft for me … yadda yadda yadda … Oh, by the way, how much will it cost? I don’t have much money - I have several mouths to feed lah - so better let me know beforehand. Thanks.”
“Incidentally, can you also please contact that impressive Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim - I am so inspired by him - so that he can chair the press conference I want to have in order to let everyone know about Najib and Altantuyaa, as told to me by Razak Baginda, as told to him by Najib.”
“Oh, do you think I should add in this bit about Altantuyaa liking it in her anus, as told by her to Najib, who told that to Razak Baginda, who told it to me?”
I just wonder …?
Maybe Mr Americk Singh Sidhu can enlighten us? Yes yes of course I am aware of the lawyer-client confidentiality but given that Bala has mysteriously disappeared, maybe Mr Singh can make an exception? Who knows, it might help uncover clues to help us locate Bala.
It would help if he can throw some light on whether my scenario modeling has been correct?
Maybe Mr Singh can also tell us whether he (Mr Singh) did that job pro bono? What a good man!
So my dear readers, here we have it ... Bala, who was so terrified of the police into signing a police statement which did not include any mention of Najib .....
..... then became brave enough to make a Stat Dec condemning Najib, no doubt based on hearsay evidence but nonetheless very very damning …..
..... which he then subsequently revealed in a 2nd Stat Dec that he was under duress to make the 1st Stat Dec.
But ... alas ... many especially the PKR and some in the legal fraternity including his own lawyer, Mr Americk Singh, said that couldn’t be. He had made the 1st Stat Dec willingly and without duress ... which of course contained all those nasty stuff about Najib .....
..... which, if we recall, he was scared to insist on their inclusion in the original police statement because he was being held for so many days in a police cell.
Alas again, PKR and some lawyers condemned him for giving in to pressure in signing the 2nd Stat Dec ..... which of course happened after he was advised by his own lawyer, Mr Americk Singh to be a good citizen and report to the police station as summoned. That’s good advice by Mr Singh ..... for us to be good citizens!
But when Bala went to the police station, he wasn’t accompanied by Mr Singh.
Hmmm, maybe Anwar accompanied him? What? No? Okay then … very amazing!
Since then, he, wife, 3 children and 2 dogs have disappeared.
Perhaps Anwar Ibrahim is looking for him? What? No again?
Oh, I see – Anwar if to be the BIG STAR at the Kelana Protes rally show to night - right now as I post this!
Maybe Bala and family and dogs are hiding in the Turkish Embassy?
Kaytee can detect two common denominators for Bala, namely (1) he seemed to be under constant duress right from Day 1, and (2) he was flicked off after his usefulness.
Such is the lot of the Indians – another case for Hindraf to lament on.
