The term ‘turn coat’ seems to be the order of the day in the country’s political scene now with the latest, father of Saiful Bukhari Azlan publicly admitted today that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s second sodomy charge was an “evil political conspiracy” involving his son.
Heavily guarded and without his son, 60-year-old Azlan Mohd Lazim alleged that the conspiracy was planned by a special officer in the Prime Minister’s Department and was engineered to tarnish Anwar’s image with another sodomy charge, the opposition leader’s second since he lost his post in government in 1998.
The press conference, of course called by PKR’s Johari Abdul, saw Azlan apologizing to Anwar and his family over the incident, admitting the episode had put them through much pain and suffering.
The press conference, similar to P. I. Bala and carpet seller Deepak, alleging being coached and statement written by someone else, this time the apology is from the father.
The irony is that the father also said he had no plan to urge his son to withdraw the appeal against Anwar but instead he left it to Saiful to decide.
Very interesting and a lot of questions unanswered…Why is it that he apologise and not Saiful himself? Was he the one who was sodomised?
And Saiful’s response was simple …”My father was used and I stick to my principle and will not move. I am thinking of how to response. I do not want to be jumpy.”
The ‘turn coat’ personalities have suddenly emerged with the nearing of general election and the Lahad Datu incident…just few months when Anwar began singing the song ‘tanya sama Najib’.
Ever wonder whether these events are all related? Ever wonder it is a grand design to further create doubts in the minds of Malaysians towards Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and BN?
Ever wonder why these personalities kept emerging and disappearing and emerging again but until today there has never been a real hard evidence except the normal ‘I will furnish further details in next press conference or few days’ time.’
Ever wonder last year even the deputy public prosecutor Datuk Yusof ‘ suddenly joined Anwar? Ever wonder in recent weeks even former generals ‘love’ Anwar now?
What made these people suddenly have a change of hearts? One wonders because the ‘turn coat’ event will continue and will not stop until voting day.
And Anwar will continue to do whatever it takes because he has no conscience and not guilty feelings…he has only his dream to achieve and he does not care what happens after that.
Truly a Machiavelli…the end justify the means.
