Anwar Arrested

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim arrived at the city police headquarters here at 1.15pm in a white Pajero after being arrested by the police.

His lawyer Sankara Nair said Anwar was arrested by the police near his house and taken to the police headquarters.

His wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said Anwar called her from the police car and asked her to go home to look after the children.

The police had on Tuesday given Anwar a 2pm deadline to answer allegations of sodomy.

Anwar was at the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) headquarters in Putrajaya earlier Wednesday. He left the ACA headquarters at 12.10pm, saying he was satisfied with the ACA's line of questioning.

He said the ACA had not completed its interview, but he had to cut it short to make his 2pm appointment with the police to answer questions over the sodomy allegation made against him.

The former deputy prime minister said he had produced all the information required, but there just wasn't enough time. "If I am arrested, I guess the ACA can do their follow-up interview at the lock-up," the de facto opposition leader joked.

Anwar had arrived at the ACA headquarters at about 10am over the reports he had lodged against the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) and the Attorney-General (A-G).

He was accompanied by his lawyers and a group of PKR supporters.

In his report lodged on July 1, Anwar had alleged that IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan and A-G Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail had fabricated evidence in the “black eye” investigation in 1999. Musa was the investigating officer and Abdul Gani led the prosecution in the case in which Anwar had been beaten up by the IGP then, Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Noor.

Musa and Abdul Gani were questioned by the ACA on July 11.

On June 28, his 23-year-old former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan had lodged a police report alleging that Anwar had sodomised him. (The Star Online)

***** On the face of it the arrest at 1.15pm seems like an absurd move on the part of the police. After all Anwar had till 2pm to give his statement to the cops. But then again we do not know all the facts yet.

The police gave DSAI until 2.00pm today to turn up at the police headquarters. At 12.55pm today, they were at his house to arrest him. Shouldn't the arrest be done if he fails to turn up after 2.00pm? Look at our mata-mata. Our education level has dropped so low that they are now unable to read time.

Aiyo, the authorities is just making sure that he will turn up to give his statements for his sodomy case charged against him. because He previously did not turn up when he promised to answer allegations of sodomy to the police before the debate event was held.

The Sodomist was arrested while trying to escape by running into his house.

Err... the Sodomist kind of forget that police can break the house door if neccesarry. I think somehow he confused his house with the Turkey Embassy.

Whoaaa... hoaaa... haa....

Segala bende jahat dia buat semua nampak baik. "Fabricated", "Lies", and all that crap. Tolong la, he is a sodomiser until he's proven not guilty ok.

How do we expect Anwar to have fair treatments under the same police officer and public prosecutor of 1998?

I agree with 'warga tua'

How can the Sodomist who is proven guilty in his first sodomy case (1998) being released by judges who believe he is guilty ?

This is not fair !

We need a fair judges this time who MUST give GUILTY verdict if the Sodomist confirmed GUILTY !

I am with you 'Warga Tua'

Dah tu nama pun yang tertuduh, kalau polis datang ambil tu bukan satu isu yang besar. Cuma penyokong2 Anwar je yang besar2kan benda ni. Kalau orang yang dituduh merogol lagi laa cepat polis datang angkut. Ni pun dah kira baik siap bagi tempoh masa lagi. Macam tu pun nak bising juga ke?
