Update 1.10am. “An aide of a senior opposition has alleged in a police report that the politician sodomised him, he has been warded in hospital”./ Star News Alert.
While others are enjoying their weekend at home with their families, remember there are others who are not so “enjoying their weekend”. And it happens that Anwar Ibrahim, PKR de facto leader has been accused of sodomy after a decade since the last controversy. At the time, there are several other blogs reporting the story and I’ll try to compile it as with as much info I can get.
Kickdefella reported that Anwar’s aide made a police report that Anwar sodomized him a few days ago but according to Kickdefella’s reliable resource, his aide was picked up by the police and filed a police report hours after that. More at Kickdefella’s Sodom Me !!

The police report lodged against me earlier today is a complete fabrication. I believe we are witnessing a repeat of the methods used against me in 1998 when false allegations were made under duress. This is clearly a desperate attempt by the Barisan Nasional regime to arrest the movement of the Malaysian people towards freedom, democracy and justice.
The report has been organized by interested parties to attack me in retaliation for evidence I have recently obtained implicating IGP Musa Hassan and the AG Gani Patail in misconduct including fabrication of evidence in the cases launched against me in 1998-1999. This vile attack will not prevent me from releasing this dossier to the public.
I urge the Malaysian people to stand against the repressive forces that will be unleashed by the government in the coming days and weeks. We expect the media, the judiciary and the police force to all come under the direct and unchecked control of the executive.
My fellow Malaysians – we took a bold step forward on March 8th towards a new dawn for freedom and justice for all of our citizens. This people’s movement for change must go on with all of our strength and conviction.
Lim Kit Siang also posted in his blog quoting that he spoke to Anwar and Anwar is ready to expect to worst thing that might happen.
Could this lead to another “reformasi”? At any point, I’m going to Quality hotel to check out the situation there. It’s now 3.52 AM in the morning and I’m going to see with my own eyes what is happening there.
