Bala; Lost and FoundPosted: July 9, 2008
Well, sort of found, I think.
KUALA LUMPUR, July 9 – Missing private investigator P. Balasubramaniam and his family are hiding in a neighbouring country, the police confirmed yesterday.
Meanwhile, his nephew, K Kumaresan, said that Balasubramaniam contacted him on Monday night to say that he was well. He also managed to speak to the private investigator’s wife during the two-minute conversation.
“I don’t know where they are. The call came through my mobile phone. I am just relieved that they are still alive, ” he said.

Somehow I don’t get it, but the StarOnline seems to be having slightly more “news” than the Malaysian Insider these days:
Sources said police here with the help of Interpol traced his whereabouts to an Asean country but declined to name it or say when he would be brought back.
It is learnt that the private investigator is fine and left the country on his own accord, contrary to reports and rumours that police were behind his sudden disappearance.

Ah… so they’re “found” him, but not telling us where he is. He’s in an ASEAN country, and they had to use Interpol to find him. He left on his own accord, and the immigration department couldn’t even go through their records to see when he left and to where?
They had to use INTERPOL to find a man with a wife and three children tagging along. 5 people means 5 passports. Meaning the Immigration Dept should have found their records and details of departure from the country quite easily. Or am I to believe that we aren’t that “savvy” after all? That our RM300 passports with “modern micro-chip technology” actually carry no function.
So now I have a question for them. Bala’s nephew, Kumaresan was the person to lodge the missing person’s report. And now that they have “found” him, shouldn’t Kumaresan be told of Bala’s location?
Keep the information from all of us, if that is what you wish. But surely the person who lodged the report has the right to know all the details of this “search”.
