Sodomy charges AGAIN??

Even the most neutral of my family members have claimed this to be the most ridiculous of all the things that has happened in the Malaysian political scene thus far. Anwar is being charged for sodomising his 23-year-old aide, and it is alleged that this act was not only done once.

There are plenty of reports already, from a report that didn’t name any names in the morning (NZ time), and now all major newspapers and blogs carry the news about Anwar being charged for sodomy. The “victim” this time is Anwar’s aide, a 23-year-old by the name of Saiful Bahari.

Anwar has released a press statement, and it reads as follows:

Press statement on police report: FOR iMMEDIATE RELEASE

By Anwar Ibrahim

June 29, 2008, Shah Alam, MALAYSIA

The police report lodged against me earlier today is complete fabrication. I believe we are witnessing a repeat of the methods used against me in 1998 when false allegations were made under duress. This is clearly a desperate attempt by the Nasional Barisan regime to arrestthe movement of the Malaysian people towards freedom, democracy and justice.

The report has been organized by interested parties to attack me in retaliation for evidence I have recently obtained implicating IGP Musa Hassan and the AG Gani Patail in misconduct including fabrication of evidence in the cases launched against me in 1998-1999. This vile attack will not prevent me from releasing this dossier to the public.

I urge the Malaysian people to stand against the repressive forces that will be unleashed by the government in the coming days and weeks. We expect the media, the judiciary and the police force to all come under the direct and unchecked control of the executive.

My fellow Malaysians – we took a bold step forward on March 8th towards a new dawn for freedom and justice for all of our citizens. This people’s movement for change must go on with all of our strength and conviction.

ANWAR IBRAHIM

Everyone has been urged to stay calm. And stay calm we should.

  1. I was shocked when i learned about this news because it’s so obvious they running out of excuse. What a joke! Guess we won’t see the coming debate between Datuk Ahmad Shabery with Datuk Seri Anwar then.

    Same shock here. When I read about it this morning, minus the names, I didn’t even think that it would be against Anwar again. *sigh*

    You know, the whole thing is really perplexing, truth be told. With so much BS being flung around with reckless abandon, it’s hard to discern the truth anymore…

    Me? I’m taking a wait-see… it’s all just too contrived to be true. In both the RPK and AI cases.

    I know what you mean. For me especially, since I’m so far from Malaysia, it almost seems unreal. Too many questions with no immediate answers.
