I No Longer Believe!! What are you saying RPK?
RPK, you are a wordsmith par excellence. You dabble with words in a way lawyers envy you. And yet here you go contradicting yourself in a way that is disappointing.
Yes, you created, cultivated and nourished a perception. A perception that you believed in that Statutory Declaration of yours. No doubt it may have only narrated what one or more people you had reason to believe in had, according to you, narrated to you a story. You are a big boy RPK, you don't now come and tell us that this or that is what you stated in the SD. So you probably signed off the SD as "I believe this to be a true narration of what was said to me," but you did not add then your own reservations, did you?
RPK is quoted, “I no longer accept the story. I think it's quite impossible...." That suggests that there was a period of time when you did accept the story. So when did that period stop? Just before you signed that SD? Or shortly after it? Maybe you can point out to us when ever it was that you had reservations over this story? I am reminded that not too long ago also you were making references to this story, like as if you believed in it to prop up what ever else it was that you were trying to state. Raja, you have to remember that you are stopped from making excuses or to suggest that for a long time you had held reservations because, being the prolific writer that you are, and one who does not hold back on anything, it is a reservation that would have stopped you exploiting the story a long time ago. And you would have mentioned your reservations too somewhere, anywhere.
Raja, you are reported to have "had made the allegations on the belief that the order came from PKR adviser and Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim." You being ordered by anyone to do something that you did not believe in? I am expected to believe that? I'd believe that if you had inadvertently put yourself in a position where you could be kicked around. Have I been fooled or have you been fooling us about your independence and freedom from any encumbrance?
Your timing sucks. And from what has been reported so far, it would seem like as if Anwar is the one who is taking the short end of the stick where he now has to respond to. You have put "confidantes" or should I say, informers or Anwar's henchmen at risk. And surely from such a tale no one would go all out to sign a SD as you have, and as it would seem, recklessly so too. It begs further thought.
