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]
