malaysianinsider | Another police report was lodged on private investigator P. Balasubramaniam today ─ this time by Americk Singh Sidhu, the lawyer who represented him for his first statutory declaration (SD) dated July 1.
Americk lodged the report at the Brickfields district police headquarters at 2.45pm, accompanied by two lawyers.
In his report, Americk denied the allegation made by certain quarters that he was involved in the first SD signed by Balasubramaniam on July 1.
“I want to clear my name because certain quarters have said that I was involved in putting Balasubramaniam under duress to make his first (statutory) declaration,” he told reporters after lodging the police report.
Americk claimed that Balasubramaniam did not consult him before making the second SD and so he did not know anything about it.
He, however, did not deny the possibility that the second SD was signed by Balasubramaniam under duress.
“Balasubramaniam spent over two months to record his first statutory declaration which was revealed on Thursday, but he only took less than 24 hours to retract it and signed a new one,” he said.
Americk said he also lodged the police report today for fear over the safety of Balasubramaniam and his family who were reported missing since Friday afternoon.… selanjutnya.
