KUALA LUMPUR: Police have completed their investigations into sodomy allegations against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and are going to charge the opposition icon soon for sodomising his accuser Saiful Bukhari Azlan, the Malaysian Insider reported yesterday.
Quoting sources, the online news site said that investigators are “crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s” and will be relying on Anwar’s DNA samples from 1998 when he faced similar charges.
“Nobody wants a repeat of 1998 when the prosecution had to amend the charges. Anwar has alleged that he had an alibi for the 24 hours on the day the offence took place. So the authorities have to check everything out,” said an official who is familiar with the investigations. [more]
