Liar and coward

I am angry. No... more like fuming. Furious. How could anyone change his mind SO quickly? One minute he's claiming a whole list of things that have happened and convincingly so, and another minute, he's telling a whole new story! Who does he think we are? Mindless idiots? This is so demeaning and insulting to the point of being rude. If you still have no idea of what I'm talking about, you should go read today's news.

Shocking, isn't it? All the revelations by this Private Investigator called P. Balasubramaniam. In fact, when I read it, I thought the time has finally come. That the people of Malaysia are finally strong enough to come out and tell the truth, and to clear away the barrier that is clouding everyone's eyes. Never did I know, just less than ONE day after the revelation, he retracted it! Read this news. And I quote from it, "I wish to retract the entire contents of my statutory declaration dated July 1 2008. I was compelled to affirm the said statutory declaration under duress." Under duress? That's the excuse given by him! For God's sake, could he have told a better lie?

In his earlier revelation, he was apparently forced to sign a police statement that had omitted some of the information provided by him. When asked why he signed it, he mentioned: “If you have experienced being in a lock-up, definitely you will sign the statement." Which means, he was signing a police statement which was not entirely depicting the information that he provided. That should not even be considered as a statement! Where is the transparency in our system? Why are certain people protected from the law? So is this how it's going to be? Every time you're under some kind of stress or threat, you can use that as a reason to do things which you could easily RETRACT later on? You signed a statement which is not entirely complete, and you claim that you did it under stress. And now, you came up with a statutory declaration on what was actually MISSING from the statement and later, you retracted it claiming it was under duress!

To Balasubramaniam out there, I think you're treating people who read the news as fools, by insulting our intelligence and telling us convincing lies that you think we would believe. In real fact, we're immensely pissed off at you, you coward. And that is from someone who's served the police force before. Shame on you! Where is the justice and honesty that the police force apparently uphold? You're really making the whole scenario to appear as a joke to the people of Malaysia. I wish the truth would prevail soon and I would gladly see what kind of excuse you would give if you're proven to be telling lies. Maybe that time, you would come up with another excuse that you were ALSO under DURESS when you were forced to retract your statutory declaration!

It is like watching a crappy tv series with crappy storyline and crappy lines... :P... and I shudder at what foreigners will think of us when they read the news.

Judge not the man too hastily, my dear. He is only the product of 22 years under Dr M who effectively created the climate of fear Malaysians have grown accustomed to (I think of the number of friends who have warned me not to shoot my mouth off, citing the ISA as a deterrent to speaking truthfully). It's only after Dr M retired (is he really? I think he will carry on being obnoxious till the day he picks up the papers and sees Anwar on the front page making the victory sign, and only then will his heart finally pack up and call it a day) that people here began to breathe a deep sigh of relief. It's also around that period that blogging began to catch on - and within a few years had ballooned into a global phenomenon (Technorati tracks more than 80 million blogs in the blogosphere!)

Now, coming back to Bala the P.I. who blew the whistle one day - and then ate his own words the next. Did you know he was contacted by the Polis shortly after giving the press conference on Thursday? They instructed him to go to Balai Polis Brickfields for an "interview." Apparently Bala reported at the cop shop around 4:45PM (wonder why he went in alone instead of bringing his lawyer?) and then became incommunicado until 9PM when he called his wife. After that, neither was heard from until 10:30AM today when Bala appeared with a "new lawyer" named Arumpalam and retracted his earlier SD. What do you suppose happened at Balai Polis Brickfields? Did they serve kopi-O kau and tickle Bala with pigeon feathers till he began to realize that life is but a joke? Will we ever find out? Not till we get rid of that gangsters' best friend, Musa Hassan, and have somebody like RPK overhaul the entire Polis Di Raja Malaysia!

bamboo: I know! It's come to a point that we, the people are treated as jokes!

antares: You are so politically well-versed. :) I guess we will never know what happened to Bala in Brickfields. In a way, this really screams out the fact that we are never allowed to tell the truth when it involves highly-ranked ministers! I despise.
