PUTRAJAYA: Lawyers of PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who is charged with sodomy should be provided with a copy of the police report lodged by his accuser, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar.
He said Anwar’s lawyers would need to read the police report by Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan to prepare their defence in the trial.
“Under the law, he (Anwar) is entitled to the police report to prepare for his defence. By right it should be given to him,” he said, adding that it was the right thing to do, as there was already a charge preferred against Anwar.
He added that it was not necessary to give copies of the investigation papers to his lawyers.
