MACC ready to probe PI Bala

Source: (16/3/2010)

The Malaysia Anti-Corruption Agency (MACC) reiterated today that it is prepared to meet private eye P Balasubramaniam wherever and whenever he is comfortable to be interviewed.

In a written reply to Segambut DAP MP Lim Lip Eng, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz said that MACC's investigation on Balasubramaniam is still going on. Balasubramaniam (left) had claimed in an interview posted on Youtube last year that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's younger brother Nazim had offered him RM5 million to retract a statutory declaration linking the premier to slain Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu.
The private investigator had then fled the country with his family on July 5, 2008, after making the retraction and a second declaration that contradicted the contents of the first.
Lim asked whether MACC is willing to travel up to England to record Balasubramaniam's statement with the presence of the latter lawyer. "MACC will record Balasubramaniam's statement in any location he prefers," stated Mohd Nazri.
