KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim lashed out at the police saying that to date they have not given him a copy of the police report of the sodomy allegation made by his accuser Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
He questioned why despite repeated requests the police report was being kept from him and his lawyers.
“Is it so that they can keep amending and amending and amending it to fit in with the statement that I have just given to the police? I gave my statement for five hours yesterday (Wednesday) and for another 30 minutes this morning.
“If they give the report to me now, how am I supposed to know that it is the original? Are they waiting to make up the ‘perfect’ police report?” he asked, adding that each time he sought a copy, the police said they had been instructed against giving him the report.
Anwar who was released on police bail yesterday morning after being held overnight at the KL police headquarters lock-up, told a press conference yesterday that the police treated him well.
But he complained that he had been put in a lock-up meant for hardcore criminals overnight and forced to sleep on the cement floor.
“It is known that I have a severe back problem and I had a major back surgery before. Lying on the cold cement floor has exacerbated the pain. It was only at 1am when Azizah (wife, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail) brought me a towel that I could put the towel on the floor and lie on it,” he said.
He said the pain in his back was so severe that his family doctor had to inject him with a strong dosage of painkiller.
“I don’t deserve this. No Malaysian deserves this. Why treat me like a major criminal and public enemy? Short of torture, what else do you call it?” he asked.
Anwar also disclosed that during his medical examination at the KL Hospital, he was stripped naked, had his whole body examined including his private parts measured. [more]
