From Bernama Read here

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi wants bloggers to stop speculating and spreading rumours on the Internet as this is another cause of the unsettled political situation in the country.

Abdullah told reporters after holding several bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the 6th D-8 Heads of Government Summit here Monday.
"I want to tell the blogs to stop all these as they are also responsible for what has happened. The best thing they could do is to stop.

Slandering has become more rampant. One no longer cares whether the accusations are true or otherwise.

Whatever the truth, the truth will come out...don't worry about it."

Update on the Disappearance of Private Investigator P. Balasubramaniam

  1. The nephews of missing private investigator P. Balasubramaniam claimed today that their uncle had revealed to them MONTHS EARLIER all the details he had stated in his FIRST statutory declaration (SD) which alleged that Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had links with murdered Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu.

    Brothers R.Kumaresan, 27, and Segar, 24, of Batu Caves said their uncle had shared with them about what he had mentioned in his first SD about six months earlier, and they believed he would one day make it public.

    Kumaresan, an information technology (IT) professional said his uncle had expressed relief after he made his first statuatory declaration public on Thursday but what he did the next day by denying it had shocked the siblings.

    Kumaresan said he also had NO idea of who M. Arulampalam, the lawyer who accompanied his uncle when he made the second SD is.

  2. Lawyer M. Arulampalam – controversial private investigator (PI) P. Balasubramaniam’s second counsel – could face possible action by the Bar Council’s disciplinary board for breaching the lawyers’ code of ethics.

    This follows allegations by Americk Singh Sidhu, the lawyer who first represented Balasubramaniam, that Arulampalam took over as counsel for the PI, without his (Sidhu’s) consent.

    It is a breach of ethics to represent a person without the prior consent or approval of his first lawyer,” he said when contacted.

    Bar Council president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan, when contacted, said that when a complaint is filed, it will go to the disciplinary board for the next course of action.

  3. R. Kumaresan, the nephew of private investigator P. Balasubramaniam who went missing along with his wife and three children on Saturday, believes that his uncle may be kept by certain quarters and has not run away.

    Kumaresan, 27, said he believed that the person or persons responsible had resorted to such action after his uncle retracted a statutory declaration (SD) he had made with another SD earlier. Kumarasen then lodged a police report on their disappearance on Saturday after losing all contact with the family.

    Kumaresan also took to task Federal CID director Datuk Mohd Bakri Zinin for saying that he (Kumaresan) did not want to give his cooperation in the case.

    "Since Saturday, I myself made arrangements to brief the police on this matter. They just told me that they had begun investigations and had recorded statements from my uncle's neighbours apart from going through his house (in Rawang) and running a background check on him," he said.

    He added that all his attempts to trace their whereabouts so far had been unsuccessful.
