Md Izwan The Malaysian Insider

Private investigator P. Balasubramaniam returned to Malaysia today, vowing to help voters and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) oust the Barisan Nasional (BN) government in Election 2013. Balasubramaniam fled the country since he made a second sworn statement to refute his first statutory declaration (SD) that implicated Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor in the 2006 murder of Mongolian Altantuya Shaaribuu.

Talks had been circulating that he was planning to return home and campaign for the federal opposition bloc. “I came back because I want to be with my fellow Malaysians.

We must change this corrupt government. “If we let them govern for 50 years more this country will be ruined,” he told some 50 PKR supporters who greeted him at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport here upon his arrival from India.

The former private investigator also swore that he had made the second SD under duress while claiming that the allegations contained in the first statement was the truth.

Balasubramaniam (picture) had said in the past that he fled the country after he and his family received death threats.

“I had no other choice. I had to take my family out of the country,” he said.

The former PI confirmed that controversial carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan had assisted in the drafting of the second SD.
