KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said there is no reason why the police should charge him for sodomy, based on the law and professional standards, and lashed out at the police chief.
With rumours of his arrest imminent, the de facto PKR leader said he did not know what to expect from the police.
Speaking to reporters at the Federal Territory Religious Department Wednesday, he lashed out Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan, whom he claimed had a personal vendetta against him.
Musa has filed a defamation suit against Anwar over the latter’s police report alleging that the IGP had fabricated evidence in the “black eye” incident of 1998. Musa was the investigating officer in that case.
“Let me remind the government and authorities that this country is not a police state. The decision must be based on facts and law not based on Musa Hassan’s personal wishes and vendetta from 1998 right through 2008.
