Anwar Ibrahim’s lawyer revealed that his client was indeed at the Desa Damansara condominium at the time of the alleged sodomy but was there for a meeting with a number of people.

According to Sankara Nair (right) today, Anwar had a meeting with “about five people” – casting a fresh alibi for the opposition leader.

“We have a watertight alibi and we have given the alibi (and their names) to the police during police investigation,” Sankara told reporters after Anwar was charged at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court this morning.

“He had people all around because they were all having a meeting in that house (the condominium unit),” he disclosed.

Contacted by Malaysiakini later, Sankara said Anwar has never denied that he had been to the condominium. The unit was owned by a friend to the opposition leader, the lawyer added.
Sankara confirmed that statements of the witnesses who were with Anwar at the time – and now are his alibi – had been recorded by the police.

He however did not elaborate on whether the complainant, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, was among the people present at the meeting. Saiful, 23, is the former aide who claimed that Anwar sodomised him.
