I, Balasubramaniam a/l Perumal a Malaysian Citizen of full age and residing at ed]
do solemly and sincerely declare as follows :-
1. I have been a police officer with the Royal Malaysian Police Force having jointed
as a constable in 1981 attached to the Police Field Force. I was then promoted to
the rank of lance Corporal and finally resigned from the Police Force in 1998 when
I was with the Special Branch.
2. I have been working as a free lance Private Investigator since I left the Police
3. Sometime in June or July 2006, I was employed by Abdul Razak Baginda for a period
of 10 days to look after him at his office at the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang
between the hours of 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m each working day as apparently he was
experiencing disturbances from a third party.
4. I resigned from this job after 2 ½ days as I was not receiving any proper instructions.
5. I was however re-employed by Abdul Razak Baginda on the 05-10-2006 as he had apparently
received a harassing phone call from a Chinese man calling himself ASP Tan who had
threatened him to pay his debts. I later found out this gentleman was in fact a private
investigator called Ang who was employed by a Mongolian woman called Altantuya Shaaribuu.
6. Abdul Razak Baginda was concerned that a person by the name of Altantuya Shaaribuu,
a Mongolian woman, was behind this threat and that she would be arriving in Malaysia
very soon to try and contact him.
7. Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that he was concerned by this as he had been advised
that Altantuya Shaaribuu had been given some powers by a Mongolian ‘bomoh’ and that
he could never look her in the face because of this.
8. When I enquired as to who this Mongolian woman was, Abdul Razak Baginda informed
me that she was a friend of his who had been introduced to him by a VIP and who asked
him to look after her financially.
9. I advised him to lodge a police report concerning the threatening phone call he
had received from the Chinese man known as ASP Tan but he refused to do so as he
informed me there were some high profile people involved.
10. Abdul Razak Baginda further told me that Altantuya Shaaribuu was a great liar
and good in convincing people. She was supposed to have been very demanding financially
and that he had even financed a property for her in Mongolia.
11. Abdul Razak Baginda then let me listen to some voice messages on his handphone
asking him to pay what was due otherwise he would be harmed and his daughter harassed.
12. I was therefore supposed to protect his daughter Rowena as well.
13. On the 09.10.2006 I received a phone call from Abdul Razak Baginda at about 9.30
a.m. informing me that Altantuya was in his office and he wanted me there immediately.
As I was in the midst of a surveillance, I sent my assistant Suras to Abdul Razak
Baginda’s office and I followed a little later. Suras managed to control the situation
and had persuaded Altantuya and her two friends to leave the premises. However Altantuya
left a note written on some Hotel Malaya note paper, in English, asking Abdul Razak
Baginda to call her on her handphone (number given) and wrote down her room number
as well.
14. Altantuya had introduced herself to Suras as ‘Aminah’ and had informed Suras
she was there to see her boyfriend Abdul Razak Baginda.
15. These 3 Mongolian girls however returned to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office at the
Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang again, the next day at about 12.00 noon. They did
not enter the building but again informed Suras that they wanted to meet Aminah’s
boyfriend, Abdul Razak Baginda.
16. On the 11.10.2006, Aminah returned to Abdul Razak Baginda’s office on her own
and gave me a note to pass to him, which I did. Abdul Razak Baginda showed me the
note which basically asked him to call her urgently.
17. I suggested to Abdul Razak Baginda that perhaps it may be wise to arrange for
Aminah to be arrested if she harassed him further, but he declined as he felt she
would have to return to Mongolia as soon as her cash ran out.
18. In the meantime I had arranged for Suras to perform surveillance on Hotel Malaya
to monitor the movements of these 3 Mongolian girls, but they recognized him. Apparently
they become friends with Suras after that and he ended up spending a few nights in
their hotel room.
19. When Abdul Razak Baginda discovered Suras was becoming close to Aminah he asked
me to pull him out from Hotel Malaya.
20. On the 14.10.2006, Aminah turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house in Damansara
Heights when I was not there. Abdul Razak Baginda called me on my handphone to inform
me of this so I rushed back to his house. As I arrived, I noticed Aminah outside
the front gates shouting “Razak, bastard, come out from the house”. I tried to calm
her down but couldn’t so I called the police who arrived in 2 patrol cars. I explained
the situation to the police, who took her away to the Brickfields police station.
21. I followed the patrol cars to Brickfields police station in a taxi. I called
Abdul Razak Baginda and his lawyer Dirren to lodge a police report but they refused.
22. When I was at the Brickfields police station, Aminah’s own Private Investigator,
one Mr. Ang arrived and we had a discussion. I was told to deliver a demand to Abdul
Razak Baginda for USD$500,000.00 and 3 tickets to Mongolia, apparently as commission
owed to Aminah from a deal in Paris.
23. As Aminah had calmed down at this stage, a policewoman at the Brickfields police
station advised me to leave and settle the matter amicably.
24. I duly informed Abdul Razak Baginda of the demands Aminah had made and told him
I was disappointed that no one wanted to back me up in lodging a police report. We
had a long discussion about the situation when I expressed a desire to pull out of
this assignment.
25. During this discussion and in an attempt to persuade me to continue my employment
with him, Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that :-
25.1 He had been introduced to Aminah by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at a diamond
exhibition in Singapore.
25.2 Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak informed Abdul Razak Baginda that he had a sexual
relationship with Aminah and that [deleted by nat out of respect to the family of
the deceased].
25.3 Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak wanted Abdul Razak Baginda to look after Aminah as
he did not want her to harass him since he was now the Deputy Prime Minister.
25.4 Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Abdul Razak Baginda and Aminah had all been together
at a dinner in Paris.
25.5 Aminah wanted money from him as she felt she was entitled to a USD$500,000.00
commission on a submarine deal she assisted with in Paris.
26. On the 19.10.2006, I arrived at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house in Damansara Heights
to begin my night duty. I had parked my car outside as usual. I saw a yellow proton
perdana taxi pass by with 3 ladies inside, one of whom was Aminah. The taxi did a
U-turn and stopped in front of the house where these ladies rolled down the window
and wished me ‘Happy Deepavali’. The taxi then left.
27. About 20 minutes later the taxi returned with only Aminah in it. She got out
of the taxi and walked towards me and started talking to me. I sent an SMS to Abdul
Razak Baginda informing him “Aminah was here”. I received an SMS from Razak instructing
me “To delay her until my man comes”.
28. Whist I was talking to Aminah, she informed me of the following :-
28.1 That she met Abdul Razak Baginda in Singapore with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
28.2 That she had also met Abdul Razak Baginda and Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at
a dinner in Paris.
28.3 That she was promised a sum of USD$500,000.00 as commission for assisting in
a Submarine deal in Paris.
28.4 That Abdul Razak Baginda had bought her a house in Mongolia but her brother
had refinanced it and she needed money to redeem it.
28.5 That her mother was ill and she needed money to pay for her treatment.
6. That Abdul Razak Baginda had married her in Korea as her mother is Korean whilst
her father was a Mongolian/Chinese mix.
28.7 That if I wouldn’t allow her to see Abdul Razak Baginda, would I be able to
arrange for her to see Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
29. After talking to Aminah for about 15 minutes, a red proton aeroback arrived with
a woman and two men. I now know the woman to be Lance Corporal Rohaniza and the men,
Azilah Hadri and Sirul Azahar. They were all in plain clothes. Azilah walked towards
me while the other two stayed in the car.
30. Azilah asked me whether the woman was Aminah and I said ‘Yes’. He then walked
off and made a few calls on his handphone. After 10 minutes another vehicle, a blue
proton saga, driven by a Malay man, passed by slowly. The driver’s window had been
wound down and the driver was looking at us.
31. Azilah then informed me they would be taking Aminah away. I informed Aminah they
were arresting her. The other two persons then got out of the red proton and exchanged
seats so that Lance Corporal Rohaniza and Aminah were in the back while the two men
were in the front. They drove off and that is the last I ever saw of Aminah.
32. Abdul Razak Baginda was not at home when all this occurred.
33. After the 19.10.2006, I continued to work for Abdul Razak Baginda at his house
in Damansara Heights from 7.00 p.m. to 8.00 a.m. the next morning, as he had been
receiving threatening text messages from a woman called ‘Amy’ who was apparently
‘Aminah’s’ cousin in Mongolia.
34. On the night of the 20.10.2006, both of Aminah’s girl friends turned up at Abdul
Razak Baginda’s house enquiring where Aminah was. I informed them she had been arrested
the night before.
35. A couple of nights later, these two Mongolian girls, Mr. Ang and another Mongolian
girl called ‘Amy’ turned up at Abdul Razak Baginda’s house looking for Aminah as
they appeared to be convinced she was being held in the house.
36. A commotion began so I called the police who arrived shortly thereafter in a
patrol car. Another patrol car arrived a short while later in which was the investigating
officer from the Dang Wangi Police Station who was in charge of the missing persons
report lodged by one of the Mongolians girls, I believe was Amy.
37. I called Abdul Razak Baginda who was at home to inform him of the events taking
place at his front gate. He then called DSP Musa Safri and called me back informing
me that Musa Safri would be calling handphone and I was to pass the phone to the
Inspector from Dang Wangi Police Station.
38. I then received a call on my handphone from Musa Safri and duly handed the phone
to the Dang Wangi Inspector. The conversation lasted 3 – 4 minutes after which he
told the girls to disperse and to go to see him the next day.
39. On or about the 24.10.2006, Abdul Razak Baginda instructed me to accompany him
to the Brickfields police station as he had been advised to lodge a police report
about the harassment he was receiving from these Mongolian girls.
40. Before this, Amy had sent me an SMS informing me she was going to Thailand to
lodge a report with the Mongolian consulate there regarding Aminah’s disappearance.
Apparently she had sent the same SMS to Abdul Razak Baginda. This is why he told
me he had been advised to lodge a police report.
41. Abdul Razak Baginda informed me that DPS Musa Safri had introduced him to one
DSP Idris, the head of the Criminal division, Brickfields police station, and that
Idris had referred him to ASP Tonny.
42. When Abdul Razak Baginda had lodged his police report at Brickfields police station,
in front of ASP Tonny, he was asked to make a statement but he refused as he said
he was leaving for overseas. He did however promise to prepare a statement and hand
ASP Tonny a thumb drive. I know that this was not done as ASP Tonny told me.
43. However ASP Tonny asked me the next day to provide my statement instead and so
I did.
44. I stopped working for Abdul Razak Baginda on the 26.10.2006 as this was the day
he left for Hong Kong on his own.
45. In mid November 2006, I received a phone call from ASP Tonny from the IPK Jalan
Hang Tuah asking me to see him regarding Aminah’s case. When I arrived there I was
immediately arrested under S.506 of the Penal Code for Criminal intimidation.
46. I was then placed in the lock up and remanded for 5 days. On the third day I
was released on police bail.
47. At the end of November 2006, the D9 department of the IPK sent a detective to
my house to escort me to the IPK Jalan Hang Tuah. When I arrived, I was told I was
being arrested under S.302 of the Penal Code for murder. I was put in the lock up
and remanded for 7 days.
48. I was transported to Bukit Aman where I was interrogated and questioned about
an SMS I had received from Abdul Razak Baginda on the 19.10.2006 which read “delay
her until my man arrives”. They had apparently retrieved this message from Abdul
Razak Baginda’s handphone.
49. They then proceeded to record my statement from 8.30 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. everyday
for 7 consecutive days. I told them all I knew including everything Abdul Razak Baginda
and Aminah had told me about their relationships with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak
but when I came to sign my statement, these details had been left out.
50. I have given evidence in the trial of Azilah, Sirul and Abdul Razak Baginda at
the Shah Alam High Court. The prosecutor did not ask me any questions in respect
of Aminah’s relationship with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak or of the phone call I received
from DSP Musa Safri, whom I believe was the ADC for Datuk Seri Najib Razak and/or
his wife.
51. On the day Abdul Razak Baginda was arrested, I was with him at his lawyers office
at 6.30 a.m. Abdul Razak Baginda informed us that he had sent Datuk Seri Najib Tun
Razak an SMS the evening before as he refused to believe he was to be arrested, but
had not received a response.
52. Shortly thereafter, at about 7.30 a.m., Abdul Razak Baginda received an SMS from
Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and showed, this message to both myself and his lawyer.
This message read as follows :- “ I am seeing IGP at 11.00 a.m. today …… matter will
be solved … be cool”.
53. I have been made to understand that Abdul Razak Baginda was arrested the same
morning at his office in the Bangunan Getah Asli, Jalan Ampang.
54. The purpose of this Statutory declaration is to :-
54.1 State my disappointment at the standard of investigations conducted by the authorities
into the circumstances surrounding the murder of Altantuya Shaaribuu.
54.2 Bring to the notice of the relevant authorities the strong possibility that
there are individuals other than the 3 accused who must have played a role in the
murder of Altantuya Shaaribuu.
54.3 Persuade the relevant authorities to reopen their investigations into this case
immediately so that any fresh evidence may be presented to the Court prior to submissions
at the end of the prosecutions case.
54.4 Emphasize the fact that having been a member of the Royal Malaysian Police Force
for 17 years I am absolutely certain no police officer would shoot someone in the
head and blow up their body without receiving specific instructions from their superiors
54.5. Express my concern that should the defence not be called in the said murder
trial, the accused, Azilah and Sirul will not have to swear on oath and testify as
to the instructions they received and from whom they were given.
55. And I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing the same be true
and by virtue of the provisions of the Statutory Declaration Act 1960.
