MACC still probing PI Bala, says Nazri

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) investigation on private investigator P Balasubramaniam is still ongoing, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz said.

MACC was prepared to meet Balasubramaniam to record his statement at any location deemed suitable by the private investigator, he said in a written reply to a question by Lim Lip Eng (DAP-Segambut).

Lim had asked whether MACC was willing to go to England to record Balasubramiam’s statement in front of his lawyer.

Balasubramaniam created controversy on July 3, 2008 when he distributed a sworn deposition in connection with the murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu, at a press conference at the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) office in Kelana Jaya.

The next day, the private investigator retracted the sworn deposition and distributed another sworn deposition at a press conference before leaving for abroad with his family. — Bernama
