PI Balasubramaniam captivates the audience in his first public experience.
KUALA LUMPUR: Support for P Balasubramaniam during his first public appearance following his return to Malaysia was nothing short of overwhelming.
Hundreds thronged the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (KLSCAH) last night to catch a glimps of the private investigator who implicated Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak in the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.
Organised by pro-opposition group Solidariti Anak Muda Malaysia (SAMM), the forum “Who Killed Altantuya?” was also graced by PKR Rembau division chief Badrul Hisham Shaharin (Chegubard), Cynthia Gabriel from human rights NGO Suaram and controversial cartoonist Zunar.
During the forum, Balasubramaniam shared his experience working for Abdul Razak Baginda by recounting his first statutory declaration (SD) in detail.
The crowd cheered whenever he mentioned Altantuya’s name, and jeered when he spoke of Najib.
Balasubramaniam then pledged his support to Pakatan, and said he would “do anything” to see the opposition coalition come to power in the upcoming general election.

"The Sound of Silence"
(cover version by Najib Razak & Rosmah Mansor)
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence
"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
In the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sounds of silence
[Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel, 1964]
