KUALA LUMPUR, July 30 (Bernama) — Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today gave a statement to the Federal Territory Islamic Religious Department (JAWI), here on the ‘qazaf’ report against Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan who claimed that he had been sodomised.
Anwar was at the department at 10.45am, accompanied by his wife Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as well as the Member of Parliament for Batu, Tian Chua, and several other people.
When met by reporters after giving his statement for about two hours, Anwar submitted the view given by an expert on ‘usufiqh’, professor Syeikh Tahar Jabir Al Ewani from Al Azhar University, Egypt, which proved that the qazaf law was applicable in cases of sodomy and adultery. The qazaf law requires the accuser to produce four witnesses to substantiate the accusation. [more]
