PETALING JAYA: PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is not worried at all about the possibility of being arrested or charged in the run-up to the impending Permatang Pauh by-election.
Anwar said the Government had gone on a one-month fishing expedition and had not caught anything.
“They have not caught any fish and they can catch whatever coconut plant they may consider is fish,” he said.
Anwar however added that he did not want to anticipate anything like that and reiterated that it would not affect PKR’s plan.
When asked if he was afraid of being arrested following rumours that his arrest was imminent, Anwar said he could not comment on rumours.
“But I am being monitored very closely. During my recent trip to Pahang there were seven Special Branch cars following me. They spend money on this when they should be taking care of the crime rate,” he said.
Anwar added that as far as he was concerned, the Opposition is still on track for the September 16 deadline. [more]
