Stopping Anwar from becoming Prime Minister

Stopping Anwar from becoming Prime Minister
In the old western movies of the 1970s, in battles with the Red Indians (the politically correct term is Native American Indians), the United States Cavalry will always aim to gun down the Red Indian Chief first.  This is because once the Chief is down, the rest of the Red Indians will have the fight all taken out of them and will ride away helter-skelter.

In the current Malaysian political scenario, Pakatan Rakyat and PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim can be likened to the Red Indian Chief and UMNO the bad cowboys who are ever-ready to gun him down.
They know that he is the one who is responsible for the setting up and running of the Pakatan, and most of all he is the one instrumental in bringing together PAS and DAP, 2 political parties with different ideologies to come together and battle the BN for the cause of justice.

On 16th May 2011, after 59 days of court hearing which began in early 2010, Kuala Lumpur High Court Judge Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah took almost 2 hours to read his Judgement wherein he said the prosecution hasestablished a primafacie case and therefore Anwar's defence must be called.

Malaysia Chronicle spoke to N Surendran in regards to this case.

"Anwar's defence should not have been called as there are sufficient grounds for aquittal.  However, Pakatan supporters already expect this decision by the Court as it is none other than a concerted effort by BN to stay in power at all costs," said Surendran, a PKR vice-president and human rights lawyer.
Anwar  was charged with sodomising his former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, aged 25, at the Desa Damansara condominium on 26th June 2008.  If found guilty under Section 377B of the Penal Code, Anwar could face a jail term of between 5 to 20 years.

With this latest turn of events, it is now very clear that the powers-that-be are going all out to derail Anwar's chances of becoming the next Prime Minister as Anwar will now need to spend much time and resources going in and out of the courts.

Be that as it may, PR is a 'one for all and all for one' coalition and everyone in Pakatan will rally around Anwar to give him support and work harder still to thwart BN's evil purposes.

With the Parliament session resuming in mid-June for about 2 weeks, Anwar's return to Parliament after his 6-month suspension in mid-December last year due to bringing up the APCO issue has been jettisoned.

Anwar was suspended for 6-months from Parliament together with PKR MPs Sivarasa Rasiah of Subang and Azmin Ali of Gombak and Karpal Singh (DAP MP for Bukit Gelugor). The veteran lawyer looks set to also continue his absence in Parliament as he is Anwar's legal counsel.

From trying to procure basic and vital documents for his defense team to trying to recuse the Judge for his bias towards the BN, Anwar's defence team have met with all sorts of obstacles at every turn.

But to top it all, this case should have been thrown out last year as the complainant Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan was reported to have a romantic liaison with one of the female members of the prosecution team.  The fact that this case is allowed to proceed clearly shows that there are hidden hands at work.

In a quick comment to Malaysia Chronicle, PAS Titiwangsa MP Dr Lolo Ghazali summed it up as being, "1 UMNO takut pada Anwar" translated as 'the whole of UMNO is scared of Anwar'.
The cost to Malaysia's credibility
This indicates that Anwar is without doubt the greatest threat to UMNO's hold on power and therefore he must be annihilated from the political scene.
Although the court decision was expected, the darkness of the scheme to use the courts to neutralise Anwar has only served to highlight to the world the decline in standards of the Malaysian Judiciary.

DAP assemblyman for Sekinchan Ng Suee Lim was dejected over the outcome of this morning's decision and commented that "Sodomy II looks like a repeat of the first sodomy case". 

Times have changed after the political tsunami of 2008 but BN are still using the same dubious tactics to oust Anwar. In fact, it appears to have stepped-up its game in a more ruthless manner.

"If this is the way, court judgements are going to go, there is no more hope for Malaysia.  No more hope for the average struggling rakyat or populace unless Pakatan comes to power in Putrajaya.  When will the rakyat wake up?  Will the people wake up only when it is already too late?" said Ng.
