“FULL PRESS STATEMENT” from Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim

Press Statement from PKR de facto Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

The hospital report leaked yesterday confirms our contention that the allegations leveled against me are baseless and politically motivated and that the complainant is an outright liar working hand in glove with those in power to assassinate my character and attempt to derail the people’s aspirations for transformational change in government.
This report makes a mockery of the so-called “impartial police investigations” and clearly shows the dubious but persistent attempts to incriminate me by whatever means employable.
How else can we fathom why the police during the last four weeks of their “thorough and professional investigations” have overlooked such a critical piece of evidence? I condemn in the strongest terms their negligence, dishonesty and recklessness in humiliating the nation by dragging us all through this vile and filthy charade.

Our refusal to submit a DNA sample has been vindicated. The failure of the police to disclose this medical report all but confirms their intention to frame me. Although quite apparent even before yesterday, their desperate attempt to collect a new DNA sample is now even more clearly a last ditch effort to build a case where none exists.

The statement by Bar President Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan in response to this latest development bears repeating.

“The credibility of the Malaysian justice system as a whole is therefore atstake. The integrity of professionals, be they doctors or lawyers, must never be interfered with. The public must be left in no doubt that the criminaljustice system in this country will not be misused or abused.”

Several weeks ago I filed a police report implicating Musa Hassan and Gani Patail in the conspiracy to fabricate evidence in my 1998 case. The ACA subsequently opened an inquiry into the matter. Given their current involvement as heads of the police and Attorney General’s chambers, and their earlier attempts to discredit and defame me, I have consistently asserted that a fair investigation into this matter would be impossible, notwithstanding the dubious character of the complainant and his association with the Deputy Prime Minister, the Deputy Prime Minister’s wife and, her staff, as well as key figures in the police department.

I reiterate earlier calls to ensure the safety and security of the doctor who authored this medical report. Reports that he and his family may be in danger must not be taken lightly given earlier instances when key witnesses in high-profile cases in Malaysia have been threatened, coerced or gone missing.

My family and I have endured a great deal during the last month. Our fears of arepeat of the trauma and abuse inflicted upon us in 1998 were bearable only with the tremendous outpouring of support from our friends in Malaysia and throughout the world. We breathed a deep sigh of relief upon hearing of the report and after seeing it with our own eyes felt a great burden lifted from our shoulders. We remain eternally grateful to them for their belief in us and their commitment to the cause of freedom and justice in Malaysia.

I have willingly cooperated in the police investigations; careless and vindictive though it has turned out to be. But I have decided that nation is in a grave situation economically and socially and I can no longer be distracted by such nuisances. I am now determined to move ahead with the reform agenda, which the Malaysian people endorse in the last elections, and i do not intend to address this scurrilous accusations anymore.

At a time when the world economy is spiraling into recession and Malaysia has struggled to remain competitive with its neighbors, this scandal was raised at the worst possible moment. The problems of inflation, unemployment, and investor confidence grow more serious by the day The authorities, aided by senior Ministers in the government, appear to be willfully dragging the nation’s stature down in their last ditch efforts to retain power. The international community has expressed its disdain for what is happening and that will translate to less foreign investment, less tourism and an even weaker economy.

I call upon the government to rise above petty vindictiveness and maneuvering for power, and to be sincere, honest and hence effective in its actions. The national good that, for the moment now reposes in their hands, demands nothing less.

ANWAR IBRAHIM

ANWAR.”Mockery” Get to the truth..Who..?”

Haha..Many spin doctors will soon be out of a job. Guess what..? Wonder who will be the unfortunate employers…? At a press conference this morning http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/86894 flanked by his wife and PKR President Dr.Azizah and Anwar’s lawyer Sulaiman Abdullah he confirmed that sodomy allegations made against him was baseless and politically motivated and the medical report has substantiated it.

The hospital report, posted on a news portal, claimed that a private doctor found no evidence of Anwar’s aide being sodomised.Anwar said today the ongoing investigation was nothing by a dubious and persistent attempt to incriminate him. Anwar the game has not even reach the crucial midway point and the police will surely get to the bottom of this. Bet my last $.!!

We ask this as this has made a made a mockery of the police report in which there is even a leak of such an evidence. How could this has happened? Surely, not another “rat” story that will be “cooked” up. But this time please ensure that its properly fried up plus a bit of “tomato and chilli sauce’. Of course we will say do not always test the intelligence of the Malaysian public.

Home Minister Syed Hamid has this “You cannot have a trial before a trial and a trial in the media and the Internet. I think that is not a very healthy position.” Do I need to say more…? I can’t, and you make your own judgements…………..

“Malaysia’s Party Alliances”

Nobody lies..!  Mahfuz Omar the information chief of PAS apologised for not telling the truth about the party’s meeting with Umno. The full report  http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/86870. In politics its the art of possibilities. Strange bedfellows usually end up together especially if you look at each party’s “aims,objectives,slogan or motto” But there may be a clause which may include,”to co-operate with any political organisations of party in any part of Malaysia having similar views,principles,policies and objects for the benefit and interest of the people and country.”

Of course at this particular time where the national political climate is so “fluid” various controversies or equations will be exposed and are the main “focal” point in conversations amongst party members. We now have headlines after the Selangor PAS/UMNO secret talks that Perak now is under attack from BN. Wrestling back another BN state is one of the main objectives after the GE in March. The headlines of

  1. Merger Push in Perak
  2. PKR Members in Perak getting restless
  3. Pakatan leaders try to reassure their members. 

Whats more even Kedah Pas yesterday warned the DAP against interfering in the former’s affairs, stressing that it had the right to discuss with anyone including Umno.The party would not follow the instructions of anyone in its struggle and as such, the DAP, which was its ally in the Pakatan Rakyat, had no right to stop or determine Pas’s actions. DAP,PASand Parti Keadilan Rakyat only cooperated as Pakatan Rakyat to face the Barisan Nasional in the general election. It (is) not an alliance like the BN,” he said.

Like I mention above there must be a clause in the party’s constitution that allows, if not the PAS boys will be feeling the wrath of the party members and supporters and for that matter UMNO. Nearer home SUPP was an opposition party and later they became part of the BN family and merged into an alliance in Sarawak as BN3.(PBB,SNAP and SUPP). Today it’s BN4 (PBB,SUPP,PRS and SPDP) .SNAP is now an opposition party. Stranger things happen in politics and “Nothing is Impossible.” 

What is really happening is the uneasiness that the whole country is going through with so much politiking. In the pasts 4 months and leading to a cut-off date of September 16th 2008 (49 days to go) there has been so many controversies that even the foreign investors are wondering what’s next..? Azizan said Karpal had no right to question any of Pas’s actions. Karpal had even said that it would be over his dead body if the PR would talk to Umno. Pas has done so. Now it is up to him (to take further action),” Azizan said.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Well anyway, PAS top leadership will gather for a special meeting this Thursday July 31st to finalise their stand on links with Umno following the secret Malay and Islam unity talks that sparked controversy among its allies including DAP’s call to review its membership in the Pakatan Rakyat. Sources said the special meeting was organised due to confusion and different statements and opinions by Pas leaders about the unity talks. So Karpal are you happy now…..?

The following would stir it up even more. What happens if the Malay Sultans in the country flex their muscles?  Analysts and constitutional lawyers are beginning to believe that the Conference of Rulers could yet determine the outcome of Malaysia’s deepening political crisis,which to many has September 16th as the cut off period to determine once and for all,”SNAP ELECTIONS” or a state of emergency if the political climate is very unfavourable.

Of course the choice of all the political parties will be to return to the  people and get a fresh mandate. Are they really that afraid…? The country’s political unstabilty has seen Abdullah’s administration lurching from one political crisis to another. Whatever diversions that has been conjured up to put the country back in the favourable economical climate, it has not worked out. It is”Political stability” that serves up the “‘economic soup” and is the number one factor for any country to move forward. Good governance,changes and favourable economic climate will ensure that Malaysia does not fall into the doldrums. Many “prophets of doom” have forecasted that it will get worse, if this carries on before it starts to shine again for Malaysia. 

Anwar has really “harped” on that he has support from enough Barisan Nasional MPs to form the federal government by September 16. So where does this leave all the party alliances? I like this  82+24(Sabah)+30(Sarawak) + 13 UMNO BN MPs =149 (2/3rds achieved-Stability). Get on with the work of getting the country back to its previous footing. September 16th…Whoever forms the government enough of all this alliances,mistrustsand equations………….All i want is my (rice) on my table…

“SAPP” Replies to Show-cause Letter..

On July 7th Malaysiakini portal reported that http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/85713 SAPP was still under BN and there was no intention of “crossing over to Pakatan.”

Today the 28th July in the just concluded SAPP Supreme council meeting the President Yong Teck Lee said that they will reply to the showcause letter.The letter was to ask why action should not be taken against SAPP under article 14 of the Barisan Constitution. Bugi Wijaya has this report that however they dispute the legality of the three BN meetings as technically SAPP is a component ot BN and they were not invited. This issue was raised by a member in the supreme council meeting as there were invited for the “Rebranding” meeting but not the emergency meetings.

Yong said in the reply it will still reiterate its stand of no confidence in the Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi and also eight demands which are:

  • That the government should be based on good governance and civil society and non-racial politics
  • That Sabah shall have political autonomy, in which the state government will be formed and run by Sabahans
  • Oil royalty amounting to 20 percent are given to all oil-producing states
  • The return of Labuan, presently a federal territory, to Sabah
  • The review of all unfair and imprudent federal laws that have been extended to Sabah
  • A just and fair participation of Sabahans in the federal administration, civil service and private sector, with federal departments in the state headed by locals
  • The immediate solution to the illegal immigrants’ problems in the state, and
  • To redress the economic and social imbalances affecting Sabah and other states

 

SAPP also reaffirms its stand in its belief  in fighting for Sabah and the interests of the people. What SAPP condones is the backdone dealings and secret talks which was done between PAS and UMNO to form the Selangor Government after the GE on March 8th 2008. It goes on to tell the two parties that it will  not work as Sabah had the experience especially after Berjaya losts the election in 1985.

“Lioness”-“INSTINCTS PROVEN CORRECT”..

Someone commented in my blog that “a women possesses the best medicine and the worst kiss of death. “Lioness”usually will capture her prey with precision and complex teamwork. The vultures in the animal kingdom have done the work for the “Lioness” by cornering Saiful. Is he going anyway now..?

It was the most outrageous plot again even Dr.M said in his blog when he said “Surely (the government) could come up with another story which would be more credible if it is deliberately plotting or conspiring against Anwar. but could this just be a ploy to skin a bigger cat. “Isn’t truth stronger than Fiction…? In the Malaysiakini portal report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/86867 Dr Azizah said this proves my husband is innocent and many in Malaysia would not dare not to agree with you..I think so..

I wrote on July 17th which goes,”While I was having my haircut my stylists said one thing,”Just for presumption- Dr.Azizah has forgiven what Anwar has done ten years ago. Today he is again up for the same thing. She thinks even Dr.Azizah together with her children will feed Anwar to the VULTURES. No need for the government to bother anymore. The end of Anwar. Full Stop. “Women’s intuition.” Buy that…..?”It’s a confirmation that it’s a conspiracy all along as this report goes to prove Anwar’s innocence,” This time its proven correct “Lioness,Kudos to you.

It was according to Dr Osman’s medical report which was recorded at 2.14pm, he found “zero active bleeding”, “zero ulcer or pus”, “zero tear and scar” in Saiful’s anus.The doctor further advised Saiful to go to a government hospital so as “to rule out” assault and sodomy. Whether the report was leaked or has been leaked the person who conspired to come out with this plot again should know that his time is up. There is always another day and another place for you to unleash your fury on an unsuspecting victim. The “Lioness‘ and his team for now are the “Kings of the Jungle” Don’t you agree…………………?

EZAM “Haha” Taking on ANWAR…

I will give credit if it’s due.I’m never short of giving praises to those who are “bold”. But this time round, Ezam haven’t you got a better “concept or idea” than to run down your former boss and mentor? Wah..! You really said this”I will be the underdog but what is important is that I have the courage to fight him till the end,” Malaysiakini portal has this report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/86838 that you are prepared to contest Anwar if a by-election is called for the Kulim-Bandar Baru parliamentary seat. Anwar has already told Bloomberg and Al Jazeera news network that you have left PKR two years ago before you went back to UMNO and that you are “irrelevant.” What a golden oppurtunity this is..? 

Revenge or trying to show your colours? Or has someone pushed you to the edge and told you “Ezam,don’t blame others for your shortcomings,blame Anwar and challenge him.” Also did they add more oil to the burning fire inside you by saying,”don’t allow past memories to chain you down and slowing your revenge purposes.’ By the way we have this advice for you,”by taking revenge a man is equal to his enemy but in passing it over he is his superior.” Your political life has hit a stumbling block.”Leave it and don’t get involve in this equation” You have to pick somebody of your own calibre or else Anwar will not only make mince meat out of you like he did to Shabery and this time no one will put a “shoulder for you to cry.” The reality of life is there is somebody up there who has charted your political future. We know that too! Fight if you must but remember all excuses afters is just like crying over spilled milk. 

Even now when I’m writing I learnt that Mohamed Osman the doctor who did the medical checkup on Saiful found no evidence of a person being sodomised, This doctor is a Burmese Muslim and has 20 years of experience and he can’t be wrong in this simple process. My question is,” Ezam with this one less problem for Anwar to tackle what are your chances?” Can it be you are being used to smoothen the path for Anwar by being the “Trojan Horse” Did i say that..?

Do you know what iconic superstar Anwar has? He is like ‘Brad Pitt’ is to Hollywood and Anwar is a political icon in ‘MALAYSIABOLEHLAND’. Looking at the picture of the ceramah with people sitting on the floor above, it has given me goose pimples.(pictures don’t lie) However,let me at least give you some encouragement it does make a good story to our grandchildren in 20 years time when we say,”Ezam vs Anwar” is similar to “David vs Goliath” but the winner is…………!!

ANWAR-“51 Days-Clock Ticks”

If you ask any Pakatan Rakyat member not necessarily YBs or MPs they will tell you that September 16th to wrestle power from the present government is definately “ON”. Just like a football bookie will say to his punter on the cellphone “ON”  We’ve heard the Prime Minister-in-waiting saying to crowds in ceramahs that Pakatan will form the government by concensus and we’re not changing the deadline. If PR forms the government by September 16th many within PR will say to me,”I told you so.” I will have my hands though covering my face.Hmmm..if only.

Malaysiakini portal has this report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/86803 and in it it also covers Anwar mentioning that September 16th is still “On”. You have 51 days according to our latest count on the calender and 35 days to August 31st”National day” The appetiser was served by PR to BN in Parliament when the “Lioness’ moved a no confidence vote against the PM. Of course the main course will be September 16th. The clock ticks and when an UMNO veteran says this words it does gets the pulse racing,” ‘Umno is a good party, like a good ship. But like a good ship, if it’s in the hands of a drunk pilot, it will sink!’

Anwar,Dr.M,Abdul Hadi and Nik Aziz has been hogging the headlines the past week or so. We thought that the PAS/UMNO issue seems to have been settled with the PAS president Abdul Hadi giving assurance that PAS will not join UMNO. Then came a “bombshell” today with the spiritual leader proposed “UMNO should dissolve,PAS should dissolve”Set up another party on condition that it is based on Islam. Nik Aziz who rarely gets into a war of words must have been pretty angry as Dr.M has dragged himself in by saying,” UMNO should not leave its partners out when making deals with PAS.” Anwar watches on the sidelines after a couple of weeks of eventful events with the IGP,AG and also the “DNA” issue.

But interestingly another colourful character Daim Zainuddin has had his say too.When he appears the “prophets of doom” says we fear the worse. Similarities of 1997 financial crisis will affect Malaysia as we are seen to be politically unstable. I wanted to reveal my” HYPOTHESIS “of the “82 Parliamentarians forcing an issue” but for now its bests we leave it out. A lawyer/Politcian said I had him believing in it but Tengku Razaleigh will be a better option. What has Anwar got to offer Tengku or vice versa? UMNO MPs,Sarawak and Sabah 54+82 to get the magical 2/3rds majority of 148. This will provide the PR government the stabilty required to push the economy of the country forward and realise many other development plans.

Tuesday, September 16th what a day and date to look forward to? Or is it..? Even the “man” himself said that he and the Pakatan Rakyat alliance was not keen on seizing power just for the sake of it but it was a bid to save the economy from jahanam (being destroyed). Anwar be it Kulim Bandar Baru or Bandar Tun Razak where you intend to run in the by elections, in your quest in entering Parliament the fact remains the clock is ticking down on you. We have not forgotten that you said only a week ago that 4 BN MPs will join PR in a week or two. Do you need reminding…Tick Tock! Tick Tock! Tick………
