|Jun 28, 08 11:03pm|
A police report has been lodged against PKRde facto leader Anwar Ibrahim for allegedly sodomosing one of his aides - the second time that such an accusation had been made in over 10 years.
The report was lodged by the 23-year-old victim at the Jalan Travers police station at 6pm.
KL police chief Muhammad Sabtu Osman confirmed that the report had been made.
"Yes, we have received a police report from an aide of Anwar Ibrahim that he was sodomised. But no, we will not arrest Anwar at the moment," added deputy federal police chief Ismail Omar.
It is learnt that Anwar met with a number of party leaders at an emergency meeting late tonight.
At 11.15pm, PKR sent out an SMS message stating that the police had detained Anwar's special aide Saiful Bahari this afternoon and forced him to lodge a police report about being sodomised by his boss.
The press conference is scheduled to be held after a meeting between Anwar and all PKR members of parliament and state assemblypersons.'A very serious situation'
Party sources said that Anwar was chairing a party supreme council meeting at a hotel in Shah Alam when he received an SMS at about 9pm on Saturday night about the police report lodged against him.
DAP's veteran leader Lim Kit Siang wrote in his blog that he had spoken to Anwar over the phone and that the PKR leader was expecting the worst.
1. Ini baru tuduhan, bukan kebenaran. Sesiapa boleh buat laporan polis, tapi lebih tinggi risiko membuat laporan polis palsu daripada membuat SD palsu.
2. Kalau benarlah UMNO "mereka cipta" kisah lama, maka bodohlah jika menggunakan strategi sama sekali lagi.
3. Semakin jauh kuasa yang dikejar, semakin terdesak seseorang itu akan bertindak.
4. Jika benar ini tuduhan palsu, dalam keadaan politik sekarang di mana kepercayaan terhadap kepimpinan begitu rendah, siapakah yang akan untung - UMNO atau Anwar Ibrahim?
5. Ataupun, dan mungkin ini pada pendapat ramai "sesuatu yang diluar jangkaan", memang benar tuduhan tersebut?
Yang jelas, rakyat akan diperkotak katik lagi. Yang tidak jelas, oleh siapa.
