From the office of Anwar Ibrahim.

On Saturday, 12-07-2008, the police came to my house to serve a Section 111 Criminal Procedure Code notice, harassing my family and demanding my presence at the IPK Kuala Lumpur (Federal Territories Police headquarters) at 2pm on Monday, 14-07-2008 despite an earlier agreement with my lawyers for me to come to the IPK on Monday 14-07-2008. On the next day, Sunday, the police also served an ex-parte court order, prohibiting me from physically being within 5 km from the Parliament on Monday 14-07-2008. As you can see, my house and the IPK KL are within 5 km radius from the parliament building. The court order effectively put me under house arrest on Monday and at the same time prevented me from going to the IPK.On Monday,

14-07-2008, the presence of police personnel outside the compound of my house strengthened our suspicions that they would be prepared to arrest me as soon as I left the compound of my residence, on the pretext of me violating the court order. The issue here, is which order should I comply with, the ex-parte court order or the Section 111 notice from the police?On the same day, the police through the Investigating Officer, one DSP Jude Pereira wrote and faxed to my lawyer at about 1.06pm, informing that I was required to be present at the IPK KL on Wednesday, 16-07-2008 at 2.00 pm to assist with the investigation. I conveyed my agreement to the appointment and it was communicated to the police through my solicitor, Messrs S.N Nair and Partners via telephone and letter on the same day.On Wednesday,

16-07-2008, I was at the Anti Corruption Agency (BPR) head office to record my statement pursuant to the police report lodged by me at IPK Shah Alam on 01-07-2008, against the Attorney General Gani Patail and the Inspector General of Police Musa Hassan for their involvement in the fabrication of evidence way back in 1998. To ensure that we will be able to attend the appointment with the police at 2pm, we cut short our statement at the BPR’s office, and this fact was clearly conveyed to the BPR officers present.At about

12.45 pm, the IO, DSP Jude Pereira called Mr Nair to confirm about our attendance and Mr. Nair confirmed that we would attend that 2pm appointment. We were about to have a quick lunch at my house before proceeding to the IPK. 5 minutes later, we were ambushed by a team of masked and heavily armed police personnel near my house.I was arrested and brought to the IPK. I cooperated fully with the police by giving my cautioned statement from

2.30 pm to about 7.30 pm. At this particular point, the IO and the other officers handling this case were doing their job professionally. I was then given assurances by Assistant Commissioner of Police Razali and later Senior Assistant Commissioner II Khor (through my lawyer) that I would be released on police bail on the same day.However, later on, upon my return from Kuala Lumpur General Hospotal (HKL), the IO, DSP Jude Pereira informed me and my lawyers that I will be detained and put in the police lock-up overnight for the purpose of recording a further statement in the morning.

I and my lawyers protested, giving our undertaking that we will be back anytime required by the police to continue with the recording of the statement, and there was no need for me to be detained overnight, and that I should be released on police bail. The police, through the IO were adamant that I should be detained and put in the police lock-up overnight, despite them knowing about my physical condition. I had to spend the night sleeping on a cold cement floor, which aggravated my back injury which was due to the beating I received from the then IGP, Tan Sri Rahim Nor on

20th September, 1998.This morning, after a short statement that was recorded for about 30 minutes, I was released on police bail. I was in pain and had to immediately receive some medical treatment upon my return home.

I now wish to deal with the statement of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Director, Dato Mohd Bakri Mohd Zinin as appeared in Utusan Malaysia today, inter alia

 

“Pasukan khas bertopeng polis terpaksa memintas kenderaan DSAI di Bukit Segambut di sini dan menahan Anwar ekoran tindakan Penasihat PKR itu mengubah haluan kenderaannya pada saat-saat tempoh yang diberi kepadanya untuk menyerah diri kepada polis pada pukul 2 petang ini hampir berakhir”

This is a blatant lie from the CID director to cover up their shameful act of abuse of police powers. I have given the assurances and had just informed the IO 5 minutes before the disgraceful ambush by the police through my lawyer who was with me in the same car.In addition to the above, the Deputy Home Minister, Wan Farid said, as reported in Star Online that, I “went voluntarily to the police car without any incident.” Again, this is also a blatant lie by the government.

I take to task the IGP for this abuse of police power against me through the events I’ve narrated above. It appears that the events of the last few days, the nature of my unwarranted arrest, my overnight incarceration which was actually absolutely unnecessary, were an act of personal vengeance against me in retaliation to the reports I lodged earlier against him, which are now being investigated by the ACA.

DNA

I have reasonable grounds for having no confidence in the system.  In the course of the trial of the false allegations of sodomy in 1998, DNA evidence was fabricated and used against me. The persons responsible for the fabrication then were the IGP, SAC Rodwan and the AG, are new key players in this investigation.

Until now, I have been denied access to the police report made by the accuser against me.

My accuser is still under police protection and as such, any fabrication is possible if they take my DNA.  My decision to refuse a DNA test is taken through advice of my lawyers and DNA experts, both local and overseas.

川普离开白宫 拜登宣誓就任美国总统

美国第45任总统川普,在当地时间(20日)周三中午卸任,搭乘海军陆战队一号直升机离开白宫。 美国媒体报道称,他在离开前还为接任总统拜登留下信函。川普未按照传统,出席接任总统就职礼。 他在安德鲁斯空军基地发表告别演说,提及过去四年达成许多成就;不过仍重申自己在选举取得大量票数,再次把冠病称为“中国病毒”。他形容美国能在9个月内成功研发疫苗,是一大“奇迹”。 至于候任总统拜登则在社交媒体形容“这是美国的新一天”。至于川普留下的信函,他仅透露“这是一封非常大方的信”。不过基于是私人信件,因此只会在双方碰面时才会谈及内容。白宫发言人则指出,川普留下的信,“内容大约45到46字。” 拜登是在本地时间今天(21日)凌晨12点50分左右,在美国最高法院首席大法官罗伯茨(John Roberts)的见证下,宣誓就职。 新加坡总统哈莉玛,以及总理李显龙也致函恭贺。哈莉玛称,全球正面对冠病疫情挑战,拜登未来的工作将是关键时刻;新美两国双边关系多年来持续蓬勃发展,且涉及国防、安全、经济、人文等多个领域。她欢迎拜登再次访问新加坡。 总理李显龙则形容,拜登是在美国与全球都面临迫切挑战之际上任。他相信强有力的美国领导团队,将对全球集体复苏和后冠病时代的形态,带来决定性影响。 拜登上任后,签署15项行政命令,下达应对疫情、气候变化、种族歧视等问题的指示,和撤消前总统川普推行的一些政策。他也履行承诺,重新加入《巴黎气候协定》、撤消川普对一些回教国家实施的入境禁令、下令加强童年入境者暂缓遣返计划,以保护非法移民子女不会被遣返。

反应过于热烈 前进党更换讲座场地至凯煌大酒店

新加坡前进党将在本月10日(星期二)举办公共政策讲座,场地原定于恭锡路The Working Capitol。不过有鉴于反应热烈,该党被迫更换场地,改为在空间较大的凯煌大酒店(Concorde Hotel)的Studio 1进行。 不过,活动进行的日期和时间则保持不变,仍是本月10日晚上7时30分至9时30分。 前进党举办系列讲座,旨在邀请相关专家、领袖,与该党支持者和民众分享、讨论对于国内重大议题的观点,促进更为丰富、多元角度的思想交流。上述活动则是系列讲座中的首场。 前进党在上月29日公布活动,邀请民众订位出席,殊不知讲座通知才刚发出一个小时,即获得热烈反应,座位预订被一扫而空。不过该党表示,会在当天进行讲座直播,让有兴趣者都能透过脸书直播聆听讲座。 讲座主题为《新加坡贫穷,社会安全网政策鸿沟》,邀请经济学家杨南强主讲。 杨南强曾担任国大李光耀公共政策研究所兼职教授的,也是新加坡政府投资公司(GIC)前首席经济师。 在上述讲座,杨南强将与与会者讨论当前政府和新加坡社会面对的社会贫富不均问题,以及在这个富裕国度内出现令人吃惊的绝对贫穷问题,同时讨论消除这些不幸社会问题的措施。 尽管此前已有不少政策推出以扶助贫穷者和缩短社会分层,但实则我国的社会安全网仍不足以应对大部分国民当前面对的生活、经济等挑战。
