Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy trial must be the longest sexual crime trial ever recorded. Anwar was acquitted last year for reasons that it was unsafe to convict him over DNA samples which was not handled properly. This, despite the samples matched his, and despite the fact that CCTV recordings, timings and witnesses’ testimonies are all pointing towards Anwar.
His acquittal is inconsistence with his stories about the government having influenced in the judiciary and that he would never win the case. All the years, Anwar has been going around the world telling the same story of the cruel regime of Barisan Nasional. According to him, the BN leaders, whoever they are, Mahathir or Abdullah or Najib, they all just want him dead or locked-up.
However, Anwar is ever free to roam the world, telling all these stories without being shot dead by the cruel regime. He even managed to give quite a tough fight in the last election which he claimed to be the most unfair and unclean, with results already set for the BN to win big.
What is even more mind-boggling is that he won the sodomy case and forced the victim to appeal.
The inconsistencies in his stories are what caused the people to turn away from him. His best buddies, his most trusted aides, his confidantes, his followers are all abandoning him in a steady flow. His own people, the Malays, have no more respect for him except for a small number who believes in liberalism and supports the rights of LGBT.
Thus, makes his guilt of sodomy even more obvious and convincing.
It is a common knowledge of the Malaysians that Anwar Ibrahim is a liar and a bisexual. Anwar Ibrahim has been telling lies all his political life. There must be a reason why he is called the Chameleon by the Economist.
As what is expected from a guilty person, the Appeal for the sodomy case which is scheduled today, has certainly makes Anwar uneasy, could be a little scared.
Oh yes, Anwar is not as brave and strong as he claimed to be. We can never forget how he ran frantically to the Turkey’s Embassy when the police report was made against him. As much as he likes to be compared to the great leaders of the world like Mandela or Gandhi, Anwar is not anywhere near them. Anwar is afraid of jail-time, most probably because, unlike them, Anwar is guilty as charged.
Just as predicted, whenever Anwar is scared, he would be running to his friends in the west for help. Amnesty International (AI) is first to come to the rescue on this one by publishing an article claiming that the charges against Anwar is politically motivated.
AI said that the charge is an attempt to stop Anwar from running for election. AI must have forgotten that the election is over and nobody stopped Anwar from contesting. As a matter of fact, Anwar’s majority had dropped quite drastically and shamefully for a man so well-known and ‘praised’ internationally. His coalition though, had performed quite well.
Obviously, it was a fair and clean enough election.
If Anwar’s western buddies have a little intelligence, they should have stayed away from Anwar in order to help him. The ‘interference’ from AI will only convinced Anwar’s followers and supporters – the Malaysians, that he is a bisexual and he did sodomized the victim. Isn’t LGBT rights is one of AI’s interest?
AI might have been promoting itself as an independent organization which fights for human rights, transparencies and justice but one would have to be as naive as a baby to believe so. On page 11 of Amnesty International Limited’s 2011 Report and Financial Statement (.pdf) it states (emphasis added):
The Directors are pleased to acknowledge the support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Oak Foundation, Open Society Georgia Foundation, the Vanguard Charitable Endowment Programme, Mauro Tunes and American Jewish World Service. The UK Department for International Development(Governance and Transparency Fund) continued to fund a four year human rights education project in Africa. The European Commission (EuropeAid) generously awarded a multi-year grant towards Amnesty International’s human rights education work in Europe.”
One doesn’t have to dig far to figure out who is behind AI – it’s the same old enemies of the world: the Neocons and George Soros as the main funder.
Just in case Anwar’s western buddies didn’t know; we, Malaysians, are not very fond of the Neocons and George Soros. So, even though the Appeal’s verdict could be in favour of Anwar, again, AI’s interfering stunt is not going to help Anwar in the next election. If Anwar won the case, he will also be losing more supports from the Malaysians – thanks to his brilliant western buddies.
Perhaps, AI should think before jumping.
