Abdul Gani Patail, the slimiest Attorney-General Malaysia has had to endure.
Look at these faces closely, folks. Some you already know, only too well – like the infamous asshole pictured right, pretending piety while lying and oozing semen through every orifice…
A few you wouldn’t recognize even if they were sitting next to you on the train. If investigating officer DSP Jude Blacious Pereira (below, left) wasn’t in uniform, would you recognize him on the street?
They all have one thing in common: their involvement in the obscene plot to put Anwar Ibrahim back behind bars over a nonsensical charge of sodomy – in the hope that with Anwar locked away, the opposition coalition called Pakatan Rakyat will lose its impetus to replace Barisan Najis as the government of the day in Malaysia.
The statutes against anal and oral sex are a relic of Victorian era colonial rule. Whereas in Britain these statutes have long fallen into disuse and died a natural death, in Malaysia they have been dusted off and abused, twice, to persecute one particular individual – a charismatic political figure named Anwar Ibrahim, whose greatest crime was to challenge the extended dictatorial reign of Mahathir Mohamad, who became prime minister in 1981 and only stepped down on 31 October 2003 under pressure from his political party, Umno.
Anwar Ibrahim has the dubious distinction of being the only Malaysian to be publicly humiliated by accusations of pederasty, and forced to endure tortuous and twisted mock trials presided over by kangaroo judges – like the late unlamented Augustine Paul and the gormless Zabidin Mohd Diah (pictured left).
Anwar was also imprisoned for 6 years and an insidious attempt made on his life while serving out his sentence through gradual arsenic poisoning. All this occurred under Mahathir Mohamad’s watch – and the same old shit is happening again to Anwar Ibrahim under Najib Razak’s insufferable crime ministership.
We owe it to ourselves – and our own posterity – to stop this gross mockery of rule of law and massive insult to our intelligence. In approximately one month, the mock trial of Anwar Ibrahim (Phase Two) will grind to an inevitable conclusion. Solicitor-General II Yusof Zainal Abidin (above, right), leads the prosecution with an inquisitorial fervor totally inappropriate to the frivolity of the alleged offence, and the grotesquely shady circumstances surrounding it.
After all, Saiful the Accuser stated in open court that he visited the then deputy prime minister, Najib Razak, and his power-hungry wife Rosmah Mansor, at their private residence a couple of days before lodging a police report against Anwar. Najib himself was forced to admit as much during a press conference on 3 July 2008. This fact alone is enough to cast an opague shadow of serious doubt over the entire political charade.
If we allow this great son of Malaysia, Anwar Ibrahim, to be imprisoned again for a completely anachronistic “crime” – and it’s absolutely irrelevant whether or not the accusation leveled against him has any basis whatsoever – then we as citizens of this nation fully deserve to be mentally shackled, morally deformed, and condemned to neverending BN misrule unto forever.
TODAY WE KNOW WHY SENIOR ASSISTANT COMMISSIONER (SAC) II MOHD RODWAN MOHD YUSOF MET MOHD SAIFUL BUKHARI AZLAN IN ROOM 619 OF THE CONCORDE HOTEL IN KUALA LUMPUR.
The meeting took place at the deputy premier’s residence in Taman Duta on June 24, 2008, two days before the sodomy incident which led Saiful to file a police report against Opposition Leader Anwar.
On June 27, Saiful said he met Ezam in Rawang to complain to the latter about how Anwar had allegedly abused him.
Ezam, a former close confidant of Anwar since his days as deputy premier, had quit PKR after a fallout and since then has been on the warpath against his ex-boss.
Saiful, who was a former aide to the opposition leader, has claimed that he was sodomised by Anwar against his will at a condominium in Kuala Lumpur on June 26.
He has also claimed that it was not the first time that the man, whom he idolised, had done this to him.
Anwar, on the other hand, has described the charge as a political consipracy, similar to the one authored in 1998 which saw him jailed for sodomy.
Saiful also revealed details pertaining to his phone call to Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan a day before the incident and his meeting with another top cop Rodhwan Mohd Yusof.
Saiful, on the third day of cross-examination by Anwar’s counsel Karpal Singh, said he first went to Najib’s office in January 2008 to get a support letter for a study loan to enrol for a pilot course in Kota Baharu.
“At that time, I did not see the deputy prime minister and only met his special officer,” he added.
30-minute meeting with Najib
Responding to another question, Saiful, 24, said he was taken to Najib’s house on June 24 by the latter’s ex-aide Khairil Anas.
“I went to Khairil’s house to tell him about this (sodomy allegation), and he then took me to Najib’s house,” he said, adding that they reached the latter’s residence around 8pm.
Saiful said he then spent some 30 minutes relating his ordeal to the deputy prime minister during the meeting, where Khairil was also present.
Asked if Najib had offered him any advice, the star witness replied: “No”.
Apart from this, Saiful also revealed to the court that he had caught a glimpse of Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor at the house, but did not meet her personally.
He also denied meeting one ‘Datuk Mumtaz’ at Najib’s house.
It is believed that Karpal was referring to Mumtaz Jaafar, a former national runner, who now heads the National Athlete Welfare Foundation, in which Rosmah is the patron. Mumtaz is said to be a close friend of Rosmah.
Quizzed on how he had obtained the IGP’s phone number, Saiful said it happened by chance when he was in Najib’s house.
“Najib asked for Musa’s number from someone whom I cannot identify. I overheard the conversation and keyed the number into my mobile phone in case of emergency,” he added.
After the meeting with Najib, Saiful said Khairil drove him back to the latter’s house, and this was where he received a call from Rodhwan, and the police officer had asked Saiful to meet him at Melia Hotel on the same night.
“I met Rodhwan in a room at the hotel and told him what had happened to me,” he said, adding that he had only related his complaint verbally and did not lodge a report then.
‘Crank call’ to the IGP
Responding to Karpal, Saiful said Rodhwan did not advise him on what to do next, but had requested for another meeting at the Concorde Hotel on June 25. This was later cancelled.
As for Musa, Saiful said he had called the police chief on June 25 and had a brief conversation with him.
Karpal: Why telephone him?
Mohd Saiful: To complain about my problems.
Karpal: Many problems?
Mohd Saiful: Of course, I have many problems.
Karpal: Did you meet him?
Mohd Saiful: Only contacted him.
Mohd Saiful: On June 25, 2008, in the morning.
Karpal: You contacted him to tell him your problems, right?
Mohd Saiful: Yes, but I only spoke for a minute and was scolded by the IGP because he probably thought it was a crank call and put down the telephone. He also reminded me not to call him again.
To another question from Karpal, Saiful said he did not find it strange that he had managed to meet the deputy premier and call the IGP.
On his meeting with Ezam, Saiful said a colleague, by the name of Rahimi, and his uncle, Tuah Mohamad, took him to mee Ezam at the latter’s house at Bandar Tasik Puteri.
Asked by Karpal if he had known Ezam prior to that, Saiful said he only knew him superficially.
Saiful told the court that the late night meeting with Ezam, prior to the police report being lodged against Anwar, only ended the next morning.
The trial continues tomorrow.
Anwar, 63, is charged with sodomising his former aide Mohd Saiful, 25, at Unit 11-5-1 Desa Damansara Condominium, Jalan Setiakasih, Bukit Damansara, between 3.01pm and 4.30pm on June 26, 2008.
He is charged under Section 377B of the Penal Code and faces up to 20 years’ in jail and whipping upon conviction.
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 22 — The lead defence counsel in Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s Sodomy II trial today suggested that multiple DNA profiles found in Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan’s anus made him a “passive homosexual.”
Three days later, at 2.00pm on 28 June 2008, Saiful went to see Dr Mohamed Osman Abdul Hamid of the Hospital Pusrawi to ‘complain’ that he had been sodomised by ‘a very important person’ and that he wished to lodge a police report. The doctor, however, found no traces or evidence that he had been sodomised and suggested, for purposes of the police report, that Saiful go to a government hospital.
Who is Rodwan, other than the fact that he works for the IGP and is known as the police chief’s bagman and go-between with the organised crime syndicate that controls all the drugs, prostitution, loan-sharking and gambling rackets? Well, read the following archived reports to get a better understanding of this scumbag and slime-ball named Rodwan. Maybe then you can understand why he met Saiful in a hotel room three days before the sodomy allegation against Anwar Ibrahim exploded.
Rabu, 30 Disember 1998
Seorang pakar forensik Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) memberitahu Mahkamah Tinggi di sini hari ini bahawa contoh darah Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim tidak boleh digunakan untuk ujian DNA kerana ia diambil dan disediakan bagi ujian HIV, Hepatitis B dan VD (penyakit kelamin).
Dr Zahari Noor berkata, oleh kerana itu beliau menolak permintaan polis sebanyak dua kali supaya contoh darah itu digunakan untuk ujian DNA. Menurutnya, ketika di Ibu Pejabat Polis Bukit Aman pada 28 September lalu bagi mengambil darah Anwar, beliau ditanya oleh Asisten Mohd Rodwan Mohd Yusof sama ada ujian DNA boleh dilakukan terhadap Anwar. Katanya, beliau menasihatkan polis supaya tidak mengambil darah Anwar untuk ujian DNA kerana Anwar hanya memberi persetujuan supaya darahnya digunakan bagi ujian HIV, Hepatitis B dan VD.
“Pada 15 Oktober lalu, Mohd Rodwan dan SAC I (Senior Asisten Komisioner) Musa Hassan datang ke HKL dan bertanya sama ada mereka boleh mengambil contoh darah Anwar untuk analisis DNA,” katanya.
Dr Zahari: Kami memberikan empat sebab kepada polis mengapa ujian DNA tidak boleh dilakukan terhadap darah Anwar:
* contoh itu tidak disediakan untuk analisis DNA,
* ia tidak sesuai untuk ujian DNA,
* pendapat kami ialah keputusan ujian DNA itu tidak boleh dipercayai.
* ia boleh membawa keputusan yang mengelirukan kerana kami menyimpan contoh darah itu di dalam bekas biasa tanpa pengawet atau EDTA.
Katanya, mereka kemudian mencadangkan kepada polis bahawa mereka bersedia pada bila-bila masa untuk mengambil contoh darah Anwar di penjara Sungai Buloh untuk ujian DNA jika tertuduh membenarkannya.
“In 1998-1999 trials, Anwar experienced the phenomenon of fabrication of DNA evidence. We had SAC Rodwan illegally removing DNA samples from forensic custody. In cross-examination of the prosecution’s witnesses it was exposed that DNA taken from blood samples was planted on the infamous mattress,” said Sivarasa.
“When confronted with this fact the prosecution amended its charge and persuaded the judge, Augustine Paul, to expunge the entire DNA evidence from the record, preventing Anwar’s lawyers from responding.”
Police have never dilly-dallied in investigating the alleged sodomy against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim since the case was reported to police on June 28, said Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar. He said the police, instead, had been relentlessly seeking relevant and the latest information, besides giving the case priority, as it was a high-profile case.
“We want to solve this case as soon as possible. The investigating officer is constantly looking for new leads. We are doing our best and we need the cooperation of all quarters concerned,” he told Bernama when contacted here Tuesday.
Ismail was asked to comment on Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar’s statement on Monday, asking for police to speed up the investigations into the sodomy allegation against the Parti Keadilan Rakyat advisor.
He said since the police investigations began, some quarters had been making speculations and statements that could interfere with the investigations.
“I wish to warn everyone, including bloggers, not to disturb police investigations by disseminating material or information that is inaccurate or false.
“Action will be taken against those who deliberately try to interfere with the investigations. Let the police do a meticulous job,” he added.
Sources told The Malaysian Insider that investigators are “crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s” and will be relying on Anwar’s DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) samples from 1998 when he faced similar charges which cost him the chance to be prime minister.
“Nobody wants a repeat of 1998 when the prosecution had to amend the charges. Anwar has alleged that he had an alibi for the 24 hours on the day the offence took place. So the authorities have to check everything out,” said an official who is familiar with the investigations.
“We understand that there is an attempt to quash credibility of the case even before the matter goes to court. The police cannot say too much because then they will be accused of trial by media and ministers cannot say much because they will be accused to interference.
“This case is built on strong scientific evidence,” the official added.
I would like to write the following statement in the name of GOD whom I believe.
I am a government doctor in the rank of consultant working in Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL). I know personally the doctors who examined Saiful on that day – 28 June 2008.
The so-called medical report mentioned in the NST is a fabrication or imagination by the UMNO paper. There is no such medical report submitted to the polis yet.
When examining Saiful, the specialist could not find any signs of Saiful being sodomised. Saiful was very cheerful, unlike real sodomised patients who will usually be very sad and disturbed.
Saiful was subsequently admitted to the ward and observed for a day. He was completely well in the ward and not emotionally disturbed.
Please let RPK know of this.
Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim has called on Datuk Seri Najib Razak to sack Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail for repeatedly failing to initiate charges in high-profile cases such as the death of Teoh Beng Hock.
