leader Anwar Ibrahim and has vowed to give him “full support” in his leadership, said its information chief Tian Chua.Indeed, there was no need for Anwar to clarify to party leaders yesterday when the claim emerged that he had sodomised his aide Saiful Bahri Bukhari Azlan.

“We do not need the clarification. When we met yesterday, all (PKR) supreme council members took the decision to give all confidence in Anwar. We also took the stand that the recent issue (raised) is an attack made in bad faith against the party.

“We, from the grassroots to the top leadership, have vowed to give our full support and belief in Anwar,” said Chua at a press conference at Quality Hotel in Shah Alam.

Saiful claimed in his police report yesterday that Anwar sodomised him “in a condo in the Damansara area”.

Anwar has rejected the accusations against him – the second time in 10 year – and described it as a “complete fabrication”. PKR also claimed that Saiful was arrested and forced by the police to lodge such a report against Anwar.

Please stay calm, supporters told

Despite the attack against the dignity of Anwar, Chua urged members and supporters not to take actions that go against the laws and regulations.

“We also call on our supporters to stay calm and carry on our work professionally and with discipline,” he said.

Arriving 15 minutes into the press conference – to shouts of “reformasi!” that resounded throughout the hotel – PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said the family was also solidly behind Anwar.

“I think it’s (self-)explanatory,” she said, alluding to claims that Saiful (photo below, left) had been ‘planted’ in PKR by quarters within the government.

Azizah said she was also reminded what had happened to Anwar following his dismissal from the government and his arrest under the ISA in 1998.

Repeating the party’s stand that the recent development indicated the second political conspiracy to thwart Anwar’s political aspirations, Azizah said they were not taking chances of placing Anwar in the hands of the police or in the legal system.

This is especially so following the failure to set up the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission four years after it was proposed, as well as the revelations of judicial wrongdoing by the Lingam tape saga, she added.

“A lot of people, a lot of Malaysians seek the leadership of Anwar, and so we have to protect him. Not only is he my husband and the father of my children, he is a leader of our country,” she said.

‘He was with us that night’

Deputy PKR president Dr Syed Husin Ali, meanwhile, said there is no need to respond to such heinous allegations as what has been raised by Saiful.

Also present was Azizah’s daughter Nurul Izzah, who barely veiled her irritation with one journalist when asked where Anwar was the night he was alleged by Saiful to have committed sodomy.

“He was with us! I think you should listen to the statement first before asking such questions,” she snapped.

To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards of people - Emily Cox

Siphoning EPF money

On 'Why should Valuecap borrow from EPF?' Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud: MTUC condemns the government's move to bail out Valuecap to support the local stock market using RM5 billion from EPF, as the provident fund is the custodian of the workers' money and not some sort of ‘automated teller machine' for the government.
If at all the EPF were to lend its money to the government, it has to be under the condition that there be transparency and accountability in the activities for which the money has been purposed. We want to know who is doing what with the money that belongs to the workers. This is the hard-earned money of the workers, their retirement plan. How is this bailout plan going to benefit the workers? We also question the reason for this bailout. If the economic fundamentals in Malaysia are strong and reserves sufficient as has been stated several times by the government, then why is there a need to offer so much money to the GLCs? Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop should prove how the EPF would profit from this loan. Bernama had reported that Nor had given the assurance that the loan given out by EPF would reap profits for the fund judging from Valuecap's past performance. But where is the paperwork and calculations to show that this move will benefit the EPF? MTUC is concerned that the loan might be mismanaged or misused and this, in turn, would affect the returns for the contributors. Mere assurances are not enough. We want to proof that this RM5 billion will not go down the drain. (The writer is president, MTUC). Sharyn: The government wants to use our pension money to prop up the Malaysian stock market which is the playing field of the rich people. If so, the government must ensure that the EPF account holders - who are predominantly the poor to average citizens of Malaysia - be guaranteed all of our pension money with a compound 8% growth (interest). It's so selfish and sick of the government to use the poor's pension money to help the rich to make more money with all the risks taken by the poor/average citizen. We can better use the RM% billion loans to Valuecap for our children's education, shelter, medical bills etc. Why not get those rich people to prop up the share market instead? Why should they park their money overseas and gamble with our EPF money instead? Kumar14: Who is behind this Valuecap organisation? Why suddenly, this separate entity is allowed to access funds from the EPF? Are they capable enough to handle it or is it just another desperate and blind move? It has been a very infamous trend where the people's funds are channeled to a company for investment purposes and suddenly POP! the funds disappear and there is nobody to be held responsible but a RM2 shell company. Charge who? Sue whom? The RM2 company (just a registered name)? We have seen this many times. People in power and with connections allow such things to go through and reap/rob the people's wealth and then blame it on organisations which actually don't exist. What if a lot of EPF funds are looted via such scams and nobody is to be pointed at? Where will the government get the funds to replenish the EPF? The people are very bored, disappointed, angry and frustrated at seeing all these dumb and unaccounted for measures being allowed by the government with lame excuses. Please, somebody verify the true purpose, integrity and capability of anybody attempting to use the people's fund.
