KUALA LUMPUR: The Myanmar doctor who had examined Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan is standing by his medical report.

In a statutory declaration dated Aug 1, Dr Mohamed Osman Abdul Hamid @ Than Aung, reiterated that he stood by ‘his findings’.

Dr Mohamed Osman also said he had no knowledge of how his medical examination report on Mohd Saiful was circulated to the media and Internet.

“I would like to stress that I have no knowledge of the person responsible for leaking the report to any third party,” he added.

Dr Mohamed Osman said that some time in early July, he was visited by an officer from the Brickfields district police’s criminal division, ASP Rosmi Mat Derus, who interviewed him about the medical examination on Mohd Saiful.

He said ASP Rosmi recorded the statement in in his own handwriting in Bahasa Malaysia.

The following week the same officer returned with a typed statement in Bahasa Malaysia for him to read and sign.

However, he said certain facts that were not discussed in the previous meeting had been introduced in the typed statement, namely Anwar’s name.

Dr Mohamed Osman claimed Anwar’s name was never brought up during the first interview and Mohd Saiful also never confided to him about the identity of the alleged perpetrator.

About a week later I was visited by a plainclothes police officer by the name of DSP Choo from the criminal division of the Jalan Hang Tuah district police, who impressed on me that I would be charged if I refused to cooperate with the police,” he added.

Dr Mohamed Osman said he then decided to flee the country with his family as he feared for his and their safety. [more]

Anwar: Drop the Case

The Star on line

PETALING JAYA: PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim claimed that the medical report leaked on Monday confirmed that the sodomy allegations against him were baseless and were politically-motivated.

He urged the police to stop their investigation and to send the medical report to the Attorney-General’s Chambers and classify the case under “no further action.”

The medical report from Hospital Pusrawi, signed by Dr Mohamed Osman Abdul Hamid at 2.14pm on June 28, was leaked on the Internet on Monday.

The report said that there was no medical indication that Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, Anwar’s 23-year-old former aide, had been sodomised.

In the report, Dr Mohamed Osman had also recommended that Mohd Saiful go to a government hospital for further check-up.

In KUALA LUMPUR, Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said that the case won’t be dropped based just on the medical report.

“This is just one aspect of the investigation. The police are piecing together evidence, let them do their job and complete their investigation,” he said.

“As it is, they haven’t charged Anwar with anything yet,” he noted.

Raja Petra Kamaruddin, editor of news portal Malaysia Today which first carried the medical report, also claimed that Dr Mohamed Osman had gone into hiding because the police wanted him to change his medical report to implicate Anwar.

The police have denied that allegation. [more]
