|PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail is expected to lodge a police report against the police chief Musa Hassan and attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail later today over their alleged misconduct during Anwar Ibrahim’s trials in 1998-1999.
Wan Azizah will be making the report on behalf of her husband Anwar Ibrahim.
Yesterday Anwar had said that he had evidence implicating Inspector-General of Police Musa and AG Abdul Gani Patail in the misconduct, including fabrication of evidence in the cases launched against him after his sacking from government in 1998.
He added that a fresh police report lodged against him for sodomy was a result of “interested parties to attack me in retaliation” over this evidence in his possession.
The report alleging sodomy was filed by Anwar’s aide, 23-year-old Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, yesterday.
Anwar claimed that the accusation against him was a “complete fabrication”. PKR also said that Saiful was arrested and forced by the police to lodge such a report against Anwar.
Anwar is presently seeking shelter at the Turkish embasy after fearing assassination attemps on him.
Wan Azizah: Aide was volunteer staff
She added that little was known of him and that no background check was done on him as he was just a volunteer. He later become a special assistant to Anwar.
Saiful is a former student leader at the Universiti Tenaga Nasional.
Wan Azizah also added that Anwar “was taking it well” with the latest happening.
The police have denied that Saiful was arrested and forced to fabricate evidence as claimed by PKR.
Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has also denied that the government was behind the new allegation against Anwar and he would let the police investigate the matter and take the necessary action.
Meanwhile, Anwar’s supporters have started gathering at the Quality Hotel in Shah Alam in anticipation of police action against the politician.
Many were there overnight to monitor the situation and protect Anwar, who is staying at a hotel to attend a two-day PKR workshop with all its elected representatives.
This morning, there were two police patrol vehicles outside the hotel.
