FEB 15 — Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is facing one of the most daunting periods of his political career.
If the court finds that the A-G Chambers is able to prove beyond reasonable doubt and convict Anwar, it will most probably spell the end of a tumultuous career of an enigmatic leader.
For the uninitiated, this “Sodomy Redux” of Anwar’s alleged indescretion bears a similar plot, from the main players right up to the actual charge itself.
The story goes of how Anwar, a 62-year-old father of six with a history of back problems who forced himself on his former aide Saiful Bukhari Azlan, a young and fit mid-20s university dropout.
The storyline is bizzare to say the least that would even make Hugh Hefner, founder of the biggest pornographic empire Playboy, smirk in disgust.
While we are being fed with juicy details of the supposedly homosexual tendencies of Anwar, it is nauseating to see how the media is bent on tarnishing and assasinate the character of the person representing the biggest threat to Umno and almost single handedly dented Umno’s 50-odd years of hegemony.
