Anwar Ibrahim Files Suit Against Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan
The suit was filed at the Kuala Lumpur High Court civil registry by Anwar’s lawyers R. Sivarasa, Ranjit Singh and William Leong at about 10.30am on Monday.
Saiful had on Saturday lodged a police report alleging that he had been sodomised by Anwar, a former deputy prime minister.
Anwar is residing at the Turkish Embassy here, saying that he fears for his life after receiving death threats. (The Star Update)
***** With the PM already convinced of Anwar's guilt it seems purposeless to file a suit. However it does publicize the issue and with the attendant publicity here and abroad, the government will perforce have to be restrained in the manner it plans to punish Anwar. Will the courts be able to provide him any relief? Doubtful, but worth a try.
