M'sia 'the only one in the world', DNA expert says scathingly of govt procedures

Australian DNA expert Dr Brian McDonald was blunt in telling Prime Minister Najib Razak's government that the bizarre manner in which a sperm sample was retrieved from the anus, then stored in a filing cabinet before being sent for tests to nail Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim for sodomy, was "the only one in the world".

According to McDonald, in Anwar's case the sperm sample was retrieved from the complainant's rectum 56 hours after the alleged sodomy. It was then left aside for another 48 hours in the open, before being sent for chemistry tests. The total time lapse of 104 hours made it one of the longest documented discoveries in the world.

“That case, along with the 1982 case, are the only two documented. In 99.9 percent of the cases, you cannot find sperm at all after such long hours. However, this (Anwar) case is the only one in the world where the sperm can be captured after 56 hours and given to the chemist two days later, where you can still find a good DNA sample,” a scathing McDonald told the court on Thursday
He was referring to a 1997 article shown to him two days ago by the prosecution that documented a sperm sample as having been found in the rectum after 113 hours.
McDonald said that to his knowledge and according to some journals, you can find a good DNA after the sample was retrieved from the rectum after eight hours. Any longer than that was in the real of the doubtful.
He doubted the credibility of the Malaysian test results that subsequently matched the DNA sample to Anwar, who is fighting off what he alleges are trumped-up charges by Najib to destroy his political career.
