Running away from something, is he?

A private investigator who went missing after linking Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to a murdered Mongolian woman has been traced to an unnamed location in Southeast Asia, police said today.


Criminal Investigation Department director Bakri Zinin said P Balasubramaniam and his family had left Malaysia on their own accord after the investigator last week made the claims and then swiftly retracted them.

“Through our close cooperation with our conterparts in Aseanapol and Interpol, we managed to locate him,” Bakri told AFP.

“But I will not reveal his whereabouts as it will jeopardize our ongoing investigations on his sworn statements,” he said.

“I cannot say if he is safe but he gave us the impression that he was safe and sound. According to the information we have, he left on his own accord.”

Bakri did not say if Balasubramaniam will be brought back to Kuala Lumpur to help with the investigation concerning his statements, which have deepened the political crisis in Malaysia.

“We are looking into all angles of legality, if we intend to bring him back. He is a free person and he is free to travel, we are just doing an investigation on the statements he made for now,” he said.

In touch with nephew

p balasubramaniam private investigator altantuya murder caseBalasubramaniam’s claims are linked to a political brawl between opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim and Najib, which could determine who is the next leader of Malaysia.

At a press conference organised by Anwar last week, Balasubramaniam released a sworn statement accusing Najib of having an affair with 28-year-old model Altantuya Shaariibuu.

She was murdered in 2006 and her body blown up with explosives in a remote forest.

Najib’s close friend, who had hired Balasubramaniam in the days leading up to the woman’s death, is on trial for abetting the murder.

The deputy premier angrily denied the allegations, saying he had never even met Altantuya. In the next surprise development the investigator then withdrew the accusations, which he said had been made under duress, and disappeared.

Balasubramaniam’s nephew, who reported him missing, said his uncle had contacted him late Monday to say he and his family were safe.

“When I repeatedly asked them where they were, my uncle told me that they could not talk freely and ended the call,” R Kumaresan said.

Siphoning EPF money

On 'Why should Valuecap borrow from EPF?' Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud: MTUC condemns the government's move to bail out Valuecap to support the local stock market using RM5 billion from EPF, as the provident fund is the custodian of the workers' money and not some sort of ‘automated teller machine' for the government.
If at all the EPF were to lend its money to the government, it has to be under the condition that there be transparency and accountability in the activities for which the money has been purposed. We want to know who is doing what with the money that belongs to the workers. This is the hard-earned money of the workers, their retirement plan. How is this bailout plan going to benefit the workers? We also question the reason for this bailout. If the economic fundamentals in Malaysia are strong and reserves sufficient as has been stated several times by the government, then why is there a need to offer so much money to the GLCs? Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop should prove how the EPF would profit from this loan. Bernama had reported that Nor had given the assurance that the loan given out by EPF would reap profits for the fund judging from Valuecap's past performance. But where is the paperwork and calculations to show that this move will benefit the EPF? MTUC is concerned that the loan might be mismanaged or misused and this, in turn, would affect the returns for the contributors. Mere assurances are not enough. We want to proof that this RM5 billion will not go down the drain. (The writer is president, MTUC). Sharyn: The government wants to use our pension money to prop up the Malaysian stock market which is the playing field of the rich people. If so, the government must ensure that the EPF account holders - who are predominantly the poor to average citizens of Malaysia - be guaranteed all of our pension money with a compound 8% growth (interest). It's so selfish and sick of the government to use the poor's pension money to help the rich to make more money with all the risks taken by the poor/average citizen. We can better use the RM% billion loans to Valuecap for our children's education, shelter, medical bills etc. Why not get those rich people to prop up the share market instead? Why should they park their money overseas and gamble with our EPF money instead? Kumar14: Who is behind this Valuecap organisation? Why suddenly, this separate entity is allowed to access funds from the EPF? Are they capable enough to handle it or is it just another desperate and blind move? It has been a very infamous trend where the people's funds are channeled to a company for investment purposes and suddenly POP! the funds disappear and there is nobody to be held responsible but a RM2 shell company. Charge who? Sue whom? The RM2 company (just a registered name)? We have seen this many times. People in power and with connections allow such things to go through and reap/rob the people's wealth and then blame it on organisations which actually don't exist. What if a lot of EPF funds are looted via such scams and nobody is to be pointed at? Where will the government get the funds to replenish the EPF? The people are very bored, disappointed, angry and frustrated at seeing all these dumb and unaccounted for measures being allowed by the government with lame excuses. Please, somebody verify the true purpose, integrity and capability of anybody attempting to use the people's fund.
