BUTTERWORTH, July 6 – Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim declined to respond to questions by the media about the call for him to swear his innocence on the Quran over the sodomy allegation.
Anwar was met by reporters after delivering a ceramah last night but did not stop to answer questions on the matter. On Thursday, Perlis Mufti Perlis Dr Mohd Asri had asked Anwar and MohdSaiful Bukhari Azlan to swear to prove their innocence pertaining to the alleged sodomy by Anwar as the matter was becoming more complicated and the people were confused and arguing among themselves.
Mohd Saiful, 23, lodged a police report on June 28 that he had been allegedly sodomised by Anwar at a condominium in Damansara on June 26.
Earlier in his speech, Anwar said he had repeatedly commented on the allegation of sodomy.
“A week ago, we were jolted with the allegation and I’m fed up and nauseated by the story.
“I had once been accused of the offence in the past. This were accusations
by those who had been disappointed in politics,” he said. – Bernama
