KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysia’s opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was bailed on sodomy charges on Wednesday, allowing him to push ahead with his bid for power at a time when the government is embroiled in a bitter race row.

This is the second time Anwar has faced what he calls politically motivated sodomy charges, after being jailed and barred from office for corruption and sodomy in the late 1990s.

He says the new charges are designed to discredit him as he seeks to entice 30 government legislators to join his opposition alliance in the coming days and take power from the coalition that has ruled Malaysia for more than 50 years.

“I am not guilty, this is a lie, this is malicious,” Anwar told reporters as he entered the court flanked by his wife and daughters and fellow opposition MPs.

“This is trial by ambush,” he said after the court appearance in which he was bailed until Sept. 24, when the judge will decide on a prosecution request to transfer the case to a Kuala Lumpur high court, a move he opposes.

KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur sessions court on Wednesday postponed Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy case to Sept 24 to allow the prosecution and defence time to prepare arguments on transferring the case to the High Court.

The prosecution had applied for the case to be transferred to the high court. Anwar’s lawyers objected to the transfer.

Earlier Wednesday, there was heavy police presence outside the Jalan Duta court complex here in anticipation of the expected crowd.

Several truckloads of FRU personnel were deployed in addition to armed uniformed policemen.

From New York Times

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The Malaysian ruling party flew more than a third of government lawmakers to Taiwan on Monday in a hastily arranged trip, ostensibly to study farming techniques.

But the trip was widely interpreted as a desperate government effort to try to stop lawmakers from shifting their support to Anwar Ibrahim.

Mr. Anwar, the country’s most prominent opposition figure, won re-election to Parliament last month after a 10-year absence and needs 30 more seats to oust the current government and form his own. His National Justice Party is openly wooing members of the ruling coalition.

Salehuddin Hashim, the National Justice secretary general, called the trip a “kidnapping” meant to protect the coalition, Barisan National, or National Front, which has ruled Malaysia for 51 years but is fracturing.

“This has obviously nothing to do with agriculture,” Mr. Salehuddin said. “It’s a very clear sign of the anxieties and insecurities inside Barisan.”

Bersama Sahabat-sahabat di Indonesia

Seusai majelis berbuka puasa bersama teman-teman Indonesia di Jakarta tempoh hari, sahabat saya tokoh sastera Indonesia, Taufik Ismail menghadiahi saya empat jilid karyanya yang berjudul Mengakar Ke Bumi Menggapai Ke Langit, karya yang menandai sudah 55 tahun beliau berjuang di arena kesusasteraan Indonesia.

Saya kira sangat baik sekali usaha seumpama karya ini yang menghimpunkan koleksi puisi lengkap beliau yang ditulis sejak 1953 hingga 2008, juga berupa himpunan tulisan kolum dan artikel sejak 1960 hingga 2008 dan himpunan lirik lagu dari tahun 1972 hingga ke tahun 2008.

Reuters | Sep 8, 2008

(Reuters) – Malaysia’s former deputy prime minister and finance minister Anwar Ibrahim is widely respected by foreign investors for his tenure around the time of the Asian financial crisis. However, the cost of insuring Malaysian bonds against default has risen sharply since Anwar’s coalition took a over a third of the seats in Malaysia’s election in March, increasing political risk. The 5-year CDS stood at 140.96 basis points on Monday, up from 91.85 on March 7, the day before the election.

That means it costs almost $141,000 to insure $10 million of Malaysian bonds against default.

Here is an outline of Anwar’s key economic policies, which he says are aimed at taming a budget deficit that will surge to 4.8 percent of gross domestic product this year due to a rise in government spending to 197.21 billion Malaysian ringgit ($56.88 billion): (more…)

By JAMES CHIN* | The Canberra Times

Former deputy prime minister of Malaysia Anwar Ibrahim won a crucial by-election for the parliamentary seat of Pemantang Pauh on Tuesday. That Anwar was going to win was never in doubt. He was first elected to the seat in the early 1980s and his wife became MP when he was jailed in 1988. Last month, she resigned from the seat so Anwar could get back into Parliament.
What was unexpected was the huge margin of victory. Anwar’s wife won the seat in the March general elections with slightly more than 13,000-vote majority. Many had expected Anwar to win by about 10,000 votes rather than the nearly 16,000 votes he took on Tuesday.

The ruling Barisan Nasional (National Front) coalition poured everything it had into the campaign. Led by the Deputy Prime Minister, Najib Tun Razak, the BN promised nearly 60million ringgit (about $A20million) worth of development.

Pakatan Rakyat Menjunjung Prinsip Perlembagaan Persekutuan

Majlis Pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat yang bersidang pada hari ini, 8 September 2008 dengan ini menegaskan penolakan kami terhadap usaha-usaha menyemarakkan politik perkauman yang sedang dilakukan oleh UMNO akhir-akhir ini. Kami amat bimbang isu ini sekarang digunakan untuk mengelabui pandangan rakyat yang sebenarnya merupakan usaha terdesak untuk menyelamatkan kepentingan segelintir golongan elit politik dan kroni mereka.

Kami sekali lagi mengulangi pendirian menjunjung prinsip-prinsip dasar yang termaktub di bawah Perlembagaan Persekutuan. Ini termasuk soal-soal dasar seperti kedudukan Islam sebagai Agama Persekutuan dan menjamin kebebasan mengamalkan agama-agama lain, kedaulatan Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan dan mempertahankan hak bahasa ibunda, kedudukan dan kedaulatan Institusi Raja-Raja Melayu serta kedudukan hak-hak istimewa orang Melayu dan Bumiputera serta hak-hak semua kaum yang telah dijamin oleh Perlembagaan.

Berdasarkan prinsip-prinsip Perlembagaan ini kami menolak sekeras-kerasnya pendekatan politik perkauman sempit yang menjadi dasar UMNO-BN. Pendekatan inilah yang sengaja digunakan untuk memecahbelahkan perpaduan dan keharmonian masyarakat majmuk negara ini.

Sehubungan ini kami membantah ucapan yang dibuat oleh Dato Ahmad Ismail yang disokong oleh semua pemimpin UMNO Pulau Pinang. Isi ucapan itu mencerminkan dasar perkauman UMNO yang sebenarnya bertujuan hanya untuk mempertahankan kepentingan segelintir golongan orang kaya Melayu serta suku sakat mereka yang menggunakan kuasa politik untuk mengambil kesempatan mengaut kekayaan negara dengan berselindung di sebalik membela kepentingan Bumiputera dan orang Melayu.

Sekian, terima kasih.
