Sodomy and more sodomy
It's a stunning revelation. Call it explosive. Private investigator P. Balasubramaniam - who was engaged by Abdul Razak Baginda - has made some very serious allegations in a statutory declaration implicating the DPM and Mongolian translator Altantuya. Balasubramaniam is claiming his allegations - which he told the cops when he was detained for seven days - were omitted from the statement he signed. The former SB officer has made very incredulous claims ranging from a US$500,000 commission for a submarine purchase deal to anal sex in his 16-page statutory declaration. Even though it is a statutory declaration, bloggers and the media have to consider the legal implications of the content. Everyone is now waiting for a reaction from the DPM office. The latest salvo from Anwar looks like retaliation following last week's sodomy allegation. Malaysians cannot be blamed if we do not know what to believe anymore. Separating fiction, allegations and facts have become impossible in Malaysian politics as the crisis deepens. But as of now, the Bursa Malaysia still cannot resume trading because of a computer glitch. The back-up system isn't even working, traders are told. Even the computer system has been screwed, or is it sodomised?
