Why all the fuss…? What relationship has Anwar with Turkey..? Turkish Premier Reccep Erdogan has struck up a friendship with Anwar even to the extend that the last GE, intelligiance gathered that Anwar has used Turkish strategists to assist in the run up of the elections. We also know that not only Turkey is an European Islamic country but Anwar is said to be an admirer of the AKP(political party), particularly the manner in which Erdogan managed to sandpaper the rough edges of the Islamic political party and make it more acceptable to the public.
If Anwar is running from ISA, Rais says it is a different matter.But he is being sought for an investigation involving sodomy, which is a crime under the Penal Code.When you run away from the law, it is not the same as facing some political persecution.As such the embassy cannot grant him any sort of protection.”We will ask the ambassador to reconsider as it is meddling in Malaysia’s internal affairs.
So what is next…Will Rais be able to get any answers from the ambassador..?
