KUALA LUMPUR: PKR Youth lodged a police report calling for an investigation into statutory declarations by Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamarudin and private investigator P. Balasubramaniam.

The report was lodged by PKR Youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin at about 3pm Friday.

According to Shamsul Iskandar, although Balasubramaniam retracted his first statutory declaration, it should nonetheless be investigated.

"The fact that the declaration was retracted in less than 24 hours has raised suspicions,” said Shamsul Iskandar, who lodged the report at the Dang Wangi police station.

He also urged the Deputy Prime Minister to step down as his integrity is "questionable" and it would reflect badly on the country’s image.

In Raja Petra's June 18 statutory declaration, he alleged to have knowledge that two lieutenant-colonels and Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, who is the wife of Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, were present when Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu’s body was blown up on Oct 19, 2006.

In Balasubramaniam's July 3 statutory declaration he alleged that Abdul Razak Baginda told him that he was introduced to Altantuya by Najib. He also alleged that Najib and Altantuya had had a sexual relationship.

In Balasubramaniam's July 4 statutory declaration he retracted his July 3 declaration, saying that he was "compelled to affirm the said statutory declaration under duress".
