Doctor: No evidence of sodomy


KUALA LUMPUR – The doctor who examined Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan after the latter had lodged a police report alleging he had been sodomised by Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has resurfaced to “set the record straight.”

Pusrawi Hospital’s Dr Mohamed Osman Abdul Hamid, reaffirmed statements he had made in a statutory declaration he had filed on June 28, saying that he had found no evidence of sodomy in his examination.

“I am standing by the SD that I have made. There have been a lot of media statements that have put me in a bad light both professionally and personally.

“Please be assured that I had merely done my job as a doctor. I am not involved in politics and I will always tell the truth,” Dr Mohamed Osman said at a press conference Thursday. He was accompanied by his lawyers M. Puravalen and Yusri Kamarudin at the Bar Council in Leboh Pasar Besar here.

His statutory declaration was leaked to Malaysia Today and published in the news portal on July 28, after which the Myanmar national took one month’s leave from the hospital and apparently fled the country.

The doctor said he has no knowledge of how his medical examination report on Mohd Saiful, who has alleged that he was sodomised by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, was circulated to the media and Internet.

“I don’t know how the information got out and I don’t know Mohd Saiful in a personal capacity.’ [more]

KUALA LUMPUR: Police are investigating the Statutory Declaration (SD) allegedly made by Dr Mohamed Osman Abdul Hamid, the doctor from the private hospital that treated Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, as there are several contradictions and errors in it.

Criminal Investigations Department director Commissioner Datuk Mohd Bakri Zinin said police were concerned about the contradictions and errors and were currently verifying the authenticity of the SD.

“Our investigations commenced soon after an article under the heading ‘What the IGP and AG do not know yet’ was published on Thursday in the news portal Malaysia Today that contained a copy of the SD purportedly made by Dr Osman of Hospital Pusrawi.

“We are not at liberty at this stage to disclose further information as the said doctor is a witness in the upcoming trial of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who has been charged with sodomy.

We strongly believe that the article was intended solely to skew public perception and undermine the police ” he said in a statement.

In his statutory declaration dated Aug 1, Dr Mohamed Osman Abdul Hamid @ Than Aung, reiterated that he stood by “his findings”. [more]
