Sodomy II appeal should not proceed



Last week’s revelation by Saiful Bukhari Azlan’s father has compounded doubts over the Sodomy II charges against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, former senior police officer Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim said today, adding that in light of other alleged discrepancies, the case should no longer be pursued.

Anwar was acquitted of the sodomy charge last January but an appeal was filed by the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) and a hearing has been set for July 22.

Mat Zain, the ex-KL CID chief who was central to the probe on Anwar’s famous “black-eye” case, wrote in yet another letter to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Naib Razak and Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar today that Sodomy II has been beleaguered by too many falsehoods.

He singled out the prime minister and A-G Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, accusing the former of lying in the affidavits he filed to set aside his subpoena in Sodomy II, and repeated allegations that Abdul Gani had fabricated evidence in Sodomy I and Anwar’s black-eye probe.

He singled out the prime minister and A-G Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail (picture), alleging lies in the former’s 2011 affidavits that were filed to set aside his subpoena in Sodomy II, and repeated allegations that Abdul Gani had fabricated evidence in Sodomy I and Anwar’s black-eye probe.

“In my view, although there were no exposes made by Azlan Lazim (Saiful’s father), the hearing of Sodomy II can no longer proceed,” the now-retired Mat Zain said.

The former top policeman has been penning countless letters to Najib over the past few years, repeatedly claiming abuses in the police force and making damning allegations of corruption implicating Abdul Gani and former IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan, largely in cases involving Anwar.

“Gani Patail, as the person who gave the final word to charge Anwar in Sodomy II, and who filed the appeal when the High Court acquitted him, can be proven as having committed so many falsehoods and fabrication of fake evidence simply to convict Anwar of criminal charges since 1998,” Mat Zain said today.

“In short, it can be proven that Gani has been having ill intentions towards Anwar since 1998,” he wrote in the letter.

In a heavily-guarded press conference last Friday, Azlan came out to say that Sodomy II was merely a political conspiracy involving his son, who was the complainant in the case.

Azlan alleged that the plot was planned by a special officer in the Prime Minister’s Department and was engineered to tarnish Anwar’s image with another sodomy charge, the opposition leader’s second since he lost his post in government in 1998.

The 60-year-old, however, was without his son at the press conference called by PKR’s Sungai Petani MP Datuk Johari Abdul. Later that evening, Saiful repudiated his father’s revelation.

Critics immediately claimed the timing of Azlan’s revelation was aimed at boosting Pakatan Rakyat’s (PR) electoral support although analysts polled by The Malaysian Insider said they believed it would not impact Election 2013 much.

Despite this, just three days later, Azlan announced that he would be joining Anwar’s PKR.

He claimed, however, that the decision had nothing to do with his accusation, saying he had been a PKR backer “as a grassroots supporter” since its formation in 1998.

He dismissed allegations that he was paid to make such claims and insisted that the revelation, made amid anticipation that national polls will be held within weeks, was the truth.

On January 9 last year, the High Court acquitted and discharged Anwar of sodomising Saiful, 27, at a Desa Damansara condominium unit in Bukit Damansara here between 3.10pm and 4.30pm on June 26, 2008.

The veteran politician, who had earlier sued Saiful for wrongfully accusing him of sodomy, later withdrew the suit, saying his reputation had been vindicated by the acquittal.








It's a crying shame that such a high profile case was thrown out of the court due to bad persecution.
In other countries, the AG would have been asked to resign as it involves a major political figure.
In Malaysia, not only the whole thing makes a mockery of the legal system, but nobody gets to be accountable for such balant waste of resources.

Mat Zain, you can shout until the cows come home, but the A-G will continue to be stone deaf. Even if he knows that legally the appeal should not proceed, he will still go ahead with it just to tie down and harass Anwar to impede the PR's general election campaign.

Very SAD indeed to see even an AG of a country can be so CORRUPTED in Malaysia......Fellow Malaysians, are we still ALIVE or are we being "Moboh" to trust corrupted AG to Ruin Malaysians lives......??? Wake up.....wake up.....!!! This guy (AG) should be put to TRIAL when PKR comes into Power later...

the result of the country treacherous project .......One soldier, 3 gunmen killed in Lahad Datu clash


KUALA LUMPUR, March 12 – One Malaysian soldier and three Sulu gunmen were killed in a gun battle at Sungai Nyamuk near Kampung Tanjung Batu in Sabah’s restive east coast today, Armed Forces chief Tan Sri Gen Zulkifeli Mohd Zin confirmed.

The three Sulus were in a group of five that were spotted at 7.45am by security forces cleaning up the area after last week’s bombardment to flush out the Filipino militants that intruded into Malaysia.

The soldier has been identified as Private Mohd Hurairah from Kelantan who had been stationed at Camp Kukusan Tawau in Sabah.

The first firefight between Malaysian forces and the Sulu gang started on March 1 and resulted in the death of 20 Sulu militants and eight Malaysians.

The Kiram clan, who claim to be heirs to the Sulu sultanate that own Sabah, has labelled the clash as the “March 1 massacre”.

Reeling from the loss of Malaysian lives, Putrajaya launched Ops Daulat last Tuesday to flush out the rest of the Sulu invaders, sending in battalions of troops and launching an airstrike on the militants led by Filipino rebel, Agbimuddin Kiram.

As of yesterday afternoon, the Sulu incursion in Sabah has resulted in the deaths of 63 people, including 54 Filipino militants, eight Malaysian policemen and one teenage boy, whose nationality is still unknown.

Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib said nine of the bodies were found in a grave at Kampung Tanduo, near Lahad Datu, and that based on fresh information it was believed that there could be other graves in the area, state news agency Bernama had reported earlier today.

Speaking at a news conference here at 10am, he said the police would not remove the bodies as they had decomposed.

He also said that security forces recovered a body in Kampung Tanjung Batu yesterday, raising to 23 the number of bodies recovered so far.

Hamza also confirmed that one of the 23 bodies was that of a general, identified only as Musa, who was killed in a clash in Kampung Tanjung Batu.

Hamza said there had been no clashes between the security forces and the Sulu terrorists over the past 24 hours up to 10am today.

The security forces launched the “Ops Daulat” offensive on March 5 after Sulu terrorists killed eight policemen in Kampung Tanduo and Kampung Simunul, Semporna, on March 1 and 2.

Five policemen were also injured in the two attacks.

The terrorists had holed up in Kampung Tanduo since February 12 and had not responded to government overtures for them to lay down arms and surrender unconditionally.

Hamza said the “Ops Daulat” offensive, which entered its eighth day today, was focused on Kampung Tanjung Labian and Kampung Tanjung Batu.






My heart felt condolence to the family of private Mohd Hurairah..
Another unjustified death of a hero due to

1. Project IC
2. Poor intel and loose border control
3. Took too long to dissolve the terrorist intrusion

While our so called leaders are still politicking and pointing fingers blaming everyone else except themselves, 9 of our police officers and soldier are already dead.
