The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) list of questions to private investigator P Balasubramaniam is now in his lawyer’s possession in London.

The questions were sent to Balasubramaniam through courier service after the MACC backpedaled on its pledge to send officers to London to record his statements, scheduled for yesterday.

“We can confirm we’ve received the questions and are studying them at the moment,” said Americk, who declined to elaborate further.

The personalities allegedly include Prime minister Najib Abdul Razak’s younger brother Nazim and businessman Deepak Jaikishan.

After the incident, Balasubramaniam fled the country and continued to make more allegations against Najib, his wife Rosmah and even claimed that his former aide Nasir Safar was at the scene when Altantuya was arrested by the police.

Press conference on Wednesday

Despite MACC officers cancelling the scheduled interview, Balasubramaniam and his lawyers “waited” for at the scheduled interview venue – Holiday Villa in Leinster Gardens.

“We waited from 10am and left at 1pm,” said Americk.

While waiting, the group enjoyed ice kacang at a Malaysian restaurant inside the hotel. A brief interlude saw the arrival of the MACC package by taxi.

Balasubramaniam will hold a press conference at the same venue at 11am on Wednesday (7pm Malaysia time) where he is expected to make further revelations.
