Malaysia hospital says doctor in Anwar case unqualified

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – A private Malaysian doctor who examined a former aide to opposition figure Anwar Ibrahim following allegations of sodomy was not qualified to conduct such a check, his employer said on Wednesday.

Private hospital Pusrawi said Saiful Bukhari Azlan, who alleged that he was sodomized by Anwar, had turned up at its facility complaining of a pain in his anus.

But the doctor who inspected him was a general practitioner and not a specialist, Kamaruddin Ahmad, the hospital’s medical director said.

“A sodomy check-up must be by a specialist, not a medical officer,” Kamaruddin told reporters. “He is not qualified to make any conclusions.”

Anwar had produced a copy of the Pusrawi report on Tuesday which he said showed that Saiful had not been sodomized, citing it as proof that the accusation by his former aide was a political plot to ruin him and scuttle the opposition’s rise. [more]
