Malaysian Police On Global Manhunt For Investigator Who Stirred Politics With Sex Claim

Malaysian police launched an international manhunt Sunday for a private detective who went missing after retracting a claim suggesting links between the deputy prime minister and a slain Mongolian woman.

Balasubramaniam Perumal is believed to have gone into hiding, or is being hidden by unidentified parties, Malaysian Criminal Investigation Department director Bakri Zinin told reporters.

His disappearance has added to the bizarre political drama that has played out in Malaysia since March 8 general elections, when the ruling part was dealt a severe setback. Since then, both sides have traded allegations of sexual misconduct, conspiracies and assassination plots.

Balasubramaniam dropped a political bombshell on Thursday by stating in a sworn declaration that he was told Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak had sex with Altantuya Shaariibuu, a 28-year-old Mongolian translator who was shot and killed Oct. 19, 2006.

Shaariibuu's body was blown up with explosives in a forest outside Kuala Lumpur.

Bakri urged Balasubramaniam to come out of hiding, saying he has nothing to fear. "I give a guarantee of his safety if he comes to meet us. And he is free to bring a lawyer to the meeting," he said. "The police in the country have been put on alert to find him. We have informed Interpol ... as well as the police in neighboring countries," said Bakri.

Balasubramaniam made the claim about Najib at a news conference with opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim. He said the source of his information was Abdul Razak Baginda, a prominent political analyst who is on trial on charges of abetting the woman's murder. Abdul Razak is a close friend of Najib.

But less than 24 hours later, Balasubramaniam withdrew the statement, claiming he made it under duress. He issued a fresh statement Friday that said his earlier statement was false and that Abdul Razak never told him about any links between Najib and Shaariibuu.

Soon afterward, Balasubramaniam, his wife and three young children disappeared and could not be reached on their mobile phones, said N. Surendran, a lawyer for Balasubramaniam's nephew. The nephew, R. Kumaresan, lodged a report with police over the disappearance of his uncle and family.

"We are investigating all the reports ... we are seeking the public's help to find Balasubramaniam because even the (nephew) ... is not giving us his full cooperation," Bakri said.

Najib and Anwar are vying to be Malaysia's next prime minister and both face accusations that could destroy their political careers. Anwar has been accused of sodomizing his male aide. Both Najib and Anwar have denied the allegations. (International Herald Tribune)

***** Where oh where has this Bala guy gone to? One assumption that we can make is that, if the cops are looking high and low for him, then probably it is not Najib who is hiding him. Or is he?

Pak Lah is not in full control of all the branches of his party and government machinery.
We may well be facing a "government within a government".

In parts of Southern Italy back in the 1970's and 1980's the local Police were indistinguishable from the Mafia.

In fact they were effectively a branch of the Mafia, except they wore uniforms and held the power of the State in their hands.

I pray were are not there yet in Malaysia.

Anonymous,
It is pointless to hunt for the coward fork tongue Bala. The time is better spent investigating DPM true involvement with Altantuya's murder. Of course the police are protecting the DPM and going after the fork tongue Bala. Sadly our police force is good for nothing other than going after the innocent and bullying the people who are after the truth.

Sex and the C4

Sodomy is a useful word
recently said and heard,
in Malaysian homes and offices
it’s all about famous orifices.
What is going on, you wonder
when Bala steals the thunder,
finger pointing the magic word
to the delight of a horny herd
Organs united, names forgotten?
VIPs are really rotten
Saifool he knows and did not know
doubts about Aminah begin to grow
of whose loose lips he was afraid
but liked her other end instead;
of course he knew it wasn't right
but it felt so good and tight!
You could not hump like Greeks
the Hindenburg’s fat cheeks;
what her hubby found so succulent
was making Rosmah trucculent.
And so she thought, the time was due
for a nice Mongolian barbecue.
Enter the analyst, not so anal,
who found the girl too banal;
fearing supernatural harm
from her juicy feminine charm,
he hired Bala straightaway
to keep the honeytrap at bay
but private dicks were of no match
for Aminah's superlative snatch
and now that Najib had had his fill,
he would not share the till;
right after the submarine deal,
Aminah's fate he would seal.
Now Rosmah had one idea
on how to kenakan dia
"Let’s bomb the bombshell,
let's send her to hell."
Thus perished the hapless beauty
after translation and booty duty;
now Rosmah’s ass was happy
until one blogger got yappy;
this Hindenburg nearly caught fire
yet to sue she has no desire.
But Najib's part in this murder
will travel much further;
despite his media actions
and one or two retractions,
some questions will remain
a big part of his bane–
how did Altantuya really die?
and why did he have to lie?
Did he pay off Bala savvily,
or threaten to C4 his family?
What acts could be more despised?
With his money, we’re not surprised;
after all, he's such a bully beast,
to him and him alone, at least,
magic words that cannot apply–
are useful for making rivals die.
