Malaysian Bar Council questions Ibrahim sodomy case probe

August 6th, 2008 – 2:35 pm ICT by IANS –

Kuala Lumpur, Aug 6 (IANS) Malaysia’s Bar Council has questioned the police investigation into the charges of sodomy made against former deouty prime minister Anwar Ibrahim by his former aide Saiful Bukhari Azlan. Terming reports about Azlan’s medical examination as “troubling”, Bar Council president Ambiga Sreenevasan asked whether he was interviewed by the police before it registered his complaint against Ibrahim.

“Reports that the examination, done a few hours before Saiful lodged a police report against Anwar, showed no evidence that Saiful had been sodomised by anyone has raised serious questions,” the Indian origin lawyer said Tuesday.

Sreenevasan raised the following questions:

* Was the doctor who examined Azlan interviewed by the police and was he detained for any length of time?

* Is the doctor facing any form of intimidation, and if so, from whom?

* Did the medical report by another doctor confirm or contradict the first medical report?

* If the medical report is true, showing a lack of prima facie evidence, what is the justification for the vigorous actions taken against Ibrahim as well as the public call by the authorities for his DNA sample? [more]

  1. Can I ask our professional institutions of what are they doing in respect of this conspiracy?

    So far I have only seen the Bar council issuing statements raising their concerns. Is this suffice for a body that supposed to uphold justice and law of this country? I’m ashamed if this is how the Bar reacts than they are no more than a body that merely being a part of these so call cahoots.
    The same goes to Malaysia Medical Association. There are 1000s of qualified medical practitioners in this country. While even an ordinary has guts to pose relevant questions on the dubious medical procedures I am perplexed as to why the silence among medical fraternity prolongs.

    Come on our so called professional! Can you please stand up? Whether one likes Anwar or Saiful is not a matter. It’s a matter of principle and procedures and ultimately the rule of law in Malaysia. With so many clouds surfacing this questionable charge, we Malaysians on behalf our young generation once again appeal to you, PLEASE, PLEASE STAND UP, SPEAK FOR JUSTICE. IT’S NOW OR NEVER
