Anwar Ibrahim warmed up to the Bandar Tun Razak electorate tonight as part of his by-election ‘campaign’ in a constituency which he claims to be eyeing as a ticket to Parliament.

In a hastily arranged ceramah, the charismatic leader spoke to the nearly 2,000 strong multiracial crowd which braved the drizzle throughout the 75-minute speech at a surau compound in Taman Len Sen.

Despite the wide range of topics, his main agenda of the night was to signal his intention to contest in the area and test the waters.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

“I was dumped into this high-security police lockup for, you see, these high-level criminals. . . . On the cement floor, without any mattresses. That explains why I have to be back on this.” Anwar Ibrahim gingerly peels up his shirt to reveal a corset-like back brace. And then he bursts into laughter.

For a man released from a night in jail only a few days earlier, Mr. Anwar is an awfully jolly man. Malaysia’s opposition leader has been accused of sodomy by a former aide — a criminal offense in this Muslim-majority country that could send him to jail for up to two decades. It’s a bizarre déjà vu for the bespectacled politician, who spent 1998-2004 behind bars on a trumped-up sodomy charge the last time he challenged for political power.

NEW YORK, July 24, 2008

As many of those who have had the privilege to work with him or under his leadership in international institutions, we have heard with deep concern the charges filed against the honorable Datuk Seri Dr. Anwar Ibrahim, in spite of the fact that similar unsubstantiated charges filed ten years ago against him were overturned by the Supreme Court.

We would like, in such circumstances, to reiterate our full confidence in his moral integrity, as a man who has demonstrated, in the discharge of his national and international responsibilities, the highest ethical standards of leadership, fighting for international

We want also to express our confidence that whatever the present political circumstances, the Government of Malaysia will exert a particular restraint in the handling of this case and will demonstrate, by dropping the charges introduced against Dr. Anwar Ibrahim, an exemplary sense of respect for the rights of the individual which are so important to the international standing of
Malaysia.

KUALA LUMPUR, 24 Julai (Hrkh) – Penasihat KeADILan, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim masih sangsi dengan kaedah siasatan yang dijalankan oleh pihak polis dalam kes liwat yang membabitkan dirinya dengan Saiful Bukhari Azlan yang pernah menjadi pembantu peribadinya sebelum ini.

Saya ada pengalaman mengenai siasatan yang pernah dijalankan sebelum ini, saya ada rasa syak wasangka mengenai hal tersebut,” katanya pada sidang media di Ibu Pejabat KeADILan, Merchant Square Damansara semalam.

Tidak menafikan apa yang sedang dialami merupakan pengalaman yang perit, Anwar berkata,” ianya sangat zalim apabila turut memalukan dirinya serta keluarga kerana ia membabitkan soal maruah.”

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - Malaysia’s Anwar Ibrahim on Wednesday said an opposition plan to seize power remained intact despite a series of secret talks between one of its partners with the ruling government.

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi over the weekend announced his United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) had held three meetings with the opposition Parti Islam se-Malaysia (PAS) to discuss issues related to Islam and Malay unity.

Local reports said the move by PAS to engage UMNO without the knowledge of Anwar’s Keadilan and the Chinese-dominated Democratic Action Party (DAP) had created rifts in the opposition, which is divided along religious and idealogical lines.

But Anwar, a former deputy prime minister, said PAS had assured him that it was committed to the opposition Pakatan Rakyat alliance.

Beberapa hari kebelakangan, media milik Umno-BN sedaya mungkin berusaha untuk mengelirukan rakyat. Dakyah dangkal kononnya Pakatan Rakyat  sedang mengalami masalah dipintal sejahat mungkin agar rakyat terpengaruh. Agen-agen anti perubahan ini seperti tidak belajar dari kesilapan lalu; tidak mengerti bahawa badai besar 8 Mac ialah kemahuan yang kuat agar perubahan terlaksana.

Kemahuan Pakatan Rakyat untuk mengambil alih kerajaan bukannya bertunjangkan ketamakan kekayaan dan sifat gila kuasa. Kita komited untuk melaksana agenda perubahan yang menyeluruh meliputi aspek ekonomi, kebudayaan, pendidikan dan politik. Rakyat adalah keutamaan kita. Perubahan yang kita perjuangkan adalah demi rakyat seluruhnya, melewati batas kaum dan agama.

Tengahari tadi saya randau dengan lebih 100 pengusaha muda terkemuka negara. Saya mengambil kesempatan ini untuk memperjelas Agenda Ekonomi Baru, menjawab persoalan berkaitan agenda tersebut serta gagasan perubahan Pakatan Rakyat. Sudah tentu persoalan pertuduhan fitnah terhadap diri saya juga dibangkitkan. Saya menegaskan, ini merupakan usaha terdesak segelintir yang tidak mengambil berat keadaan negara dan rakyat. Wacana segar terus dipupuk di kalangan mereka yang nyata optimis dengan politik baru yang didukung oleh KeADILan dan Pakatan Rakyat.

Keluh kesah di kalangan mereka, khususnya mengenai tahap pemberdayaan ekonomi yang lemah kini jelas menggambarkan pelaksanaan dasar yang tidak tepat dek kerana kepimpinan yang tidak kredibel. Pastinya yang terus terkesan ialah rakyat yang semakin tersepit dengan kos sara hidup yang semakin meninggi.

Biar sehebat mana fitnah diacu terhadap diri saya, namun kita perlu terus istiqamah memandang ke depan, agar rakyat terus menang di akhir persimpangan.

Virtually the whole of Malaysia is now talking about DNA. DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) has become a buzz word, featuring in conversations at coffee shops; offices and even our august parliament.

We must thank Crick and Watson who discovered the double stranded helical structure of the DNA molecule in 1954 which has since unleashed a plethora of advances in biotechnology. Forensic DNA is one of the many breakthroughs in this research in an impassioned endeavor towards advancing justice through DNA technology.

Justice and fairness should instead be the buzz word of the rakyat, the parliament , political leadership and the impartial media. This unfortunately is a far cry considering the various statements issued and the nuances of the mainstream media. Overnight, a handful of parliamentarians have turned pseudo-geneticists, shouting for surrender of DNA material ! Some have even sentenced the alleged assailant an unequivocal guilty verdict!

Beginning with the end, it is important to emphasize upfront that with all of the available DNA techniques, conviction cannot be based on DNA evidence ALONE if there are a host of other conflicting and non-corroborative evidence. For example, if a victim claimed rape in a condominium in KL whilst the accused was addressing a seminar in Singapore at the material time, no amount of DNA recovered at the crime scene is going to make any difference.

We hope this would moderate the DNA mania which is incessantly hyped, the latest by the father of the alleged victim.

Notwithstanding, what is worrying from the hypothetical case scenario is, how DNA of the alleged assailant got into the condominium. In the language of forensic medicine, there is an outright breach of the chain of custody in this hypothetical case.

Seremban, 22nd July 2008 

It is unfair and mischievous to put the blame on Anwar Ibrahim, as he is justified in refusing to give further samples. It is not Anwar who is un-cooperative. It is the police forensics who are at fault, and insisting on further blood samples when he had already given many times over between 1998 and 2004.

The onus of providing a DNA sample is on the police as it has ample DNA samples of Anwar in its possession.

From the experience of police forensics in other countries, DNA samples collected are well preserved for many many years, and do not get ‘old’ as claimed by Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi.
