Anwar: PM and AG Waiting To Frame Me Up

Pitty this guy, the goverment is trying to put him off in any way that they could think off. Look at this, i can see how dirty and filthy our goverment is. I guess Anwar will be able to put up a fight and may win the election even without campaigning. By reading Malaysiakini report below, Anwar is frustrated with the Prime Minister and AG.

PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim today slammed the government's decision to charge him with sodomy tomorrow.

Calling it a sham trial, he blamed Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi for orchestrating the trial in order to protect himself (Abdullah).

"I hold the prime minister responsible for bringing damage to this nation with this sham trial," he said.

He was responding to a police notice served on him earlier today to appear at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions' Court tomorrow morning to be charged with sodomy of his former aide Mohamad Saiful Bukhari Azlan, 23.

Anwar also said that his sources from the Attorney-General's Chambers told him that it was against preferring any charges against him. However he added the police and Abdullah were keen on pursuing with the trial.

"We are also informed that some individuals within the Prime Minister's close circles are adamant about pursuing this case.

"Their involvement further undermines the credibility of the case and proves that the entire conspiracy hatched against me is politically motivated," he added.

The former deputy prime minister also said that he might have to be absent from campaigning as well as during polling for the Permatang Pauh parliamentary by-election as a result of the court case against him.
