Anwar: Is there room left to defend myself?

Anwar: Is there room left to defend myself?
Saying he was not surprised by the High Court's decision ordering him to enter defence in the allegation of sodomy against him, Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim today wondered whether there was any more room left for him to get justice.

“I expected the judge’s decision but deeply regret the strange judgement fully defending the prosecution as perfect.

"Is there still room for me to defend myself?” twitted Anwar in an immediate response.

High Court judge Zabidin Mohd Diah today said there was a prima faciecase against Anwar over allegation by Saiful Bukhari Azlan that he was sodomised in 2008, and set the trial date to resume on June 6.

Earlier, a large crowd turned up at the court house to express support for Anwar. They included PAS vice president Mahfuz Omar, PKR deputy president Azmin Ali, PKR vice president Tian Chua, Selangor state executive councillor Ronnie Liu, as well as Anwar’s wife Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and daughter Nuzul Izzah.

The once-rejected DNA samples taken from three items in a cell where Anwar spent the night on July 16, 2008 became a crucial turnaround for the case, after the judge’s reversal in March to allow the prosecution to admit them as evidence.
Nik Aziz: Stay strong

Accuser Saiful was however absent in court today.

Judge Zabidin praised Saiful as a reliable witness, although during the trial, lead counsel Karpal Singh had several times shown how Saiful had lied in court.

"I find Saiful's evidence remains intact. I find him to be a truthful witness and reliable," said Zabidin.

Meanwhile, PAS Murshidul Am Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat advised Anwar to be patient, reminding him that tyranny would be defeated in the end.

“I advise DSAI (Anwar) to have patience, tyranny will be defeated in the end," he said.

It’s very clear that DSAI is tried to be convicted in any circumstances whatsoever,” added Nik Aziz.
