KUALA LUMPUR: The Home Ministry on Wednesday gave 96 diplomats a briefing on PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy allegations.
According to Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar the foreign envoys were also briefed on Malaysia’s system of law and why certain actions have been taken by the authorities.
Speaking to reporters later, Syed Hamid said it was necessary to brief the envoys so they would have a better picture of what was happening in the country as opposed to believing stories about conspiracies.
“To us, there is no need to be afraid of the truth. Let them hear both sides. Whether they believe it or not is another matter but I think they will appreciate our transparency,” he said.
