KUALA LUMPUR: The police are considering bringing in foreign experts including DNA specialists to assist in the investigations into the sodomy allegations against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
It is learnt that among the options the police were looking at was to bring in a DNA expert of Anwar’s choice so as to dispel any notion of a conspiracy involving the police.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar confirmed that police were looking at those options to show they were transparent and professional in investigating the case. […]
Earlier, at a press conference in Bukit Aman, Ismail said police were also considering obtaining a court order to compel Anwar to provide his DNA samples.
He said the police and hospital authorities were having trouble getting a sample, as Anwar wad not cooperative with the police.
“He refused to provide a DNA sample when he was taken to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital here for a medical examination on Wednesday,” he added.
Ismail refused to comment when he was asked why the police refused to use the previous DNA sample which was taken from Anwar in 1998.
He said police were “not interested in talking about the past”. [more]
