PETALING JAYA, July 19 (Bernama) — Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim Saturday maintained he would not allow his DNA sample to be taken over a sodomy allegation, saying he had last subjected himself to a DNA test in 2004 and that result was still applicable.
He claimed that blood samples were taken from him five or six times while he was serving a six-year jail term for corruption from April 1999.
Anwar said there was no sound reason for him to undergo a DNA test, considering that the last one was done in 2004 and that DNA data would remain unchanged for a long period.
“In fact, a fresh DNA sample is unnecessary. The (DNA) data will not change even in 2,000 years. If there is a sample, I do not see the need for me to give (a sample) once again,” he said in an address at the PKR headquarters here. [more]
