Various comments are being bandied about after Balasubramaniam’s statutory declaration that was revealed by Anwar this afternoon. Most of us have read and reread the SD, and picked it up with a fine tooth comb. The comments by bloggers have been varied, some calling the SD as hogwash, lies, and why Bala could not have brought it up at the trial where he was the first witness. There have been others defending the SD, that the people have been taken for a ride, and calling into question the system of law and justice in this country. Every one has got a right to comment and I think it is too early and premature now to come into a conclusion without the alleged accusers given a chance to explain their side of the story.
The country laws do not provide for the luxury of condemning someone when some negative actions are reported and then lock them away in a cell. An investigation has to take place.
From Anwar’s statement and from what we know, there was switching of DPP’s at the last moment, and the changing of judges. The Attorney General must have his say. Anwar in his report on the new allegation of sodomy, has referred to irregularities in the IGP and AG handling of his case earlier.
The ACA is acting on Anwars report, and now with new revelations pointing towards the IGP and AG, the Prime Minister should suspend these two officers from their duties to give the ACA the clout to investigate people without any interference and hopefully give a complete and detailed report. Will Badawi do that.
