Statement by the Chairman of The Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator John Kerry On Anwar Ibrahim

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry (D-MA) released the following statement today about Former Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim:

“I call on the government of Malaysia, and specifically on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, to ensure a fair and equitable resolution of the legal proceedings currently under way against former Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

“It has been over a decade since Anwar’s first trial, on charges that were later overturned by the Federal Court. The current charges closely mirror the ones levied years ago, and have been brought soon after Mr. Anwar’s resumption of his role as elected Member of Parliament and leader of the parliamentary opposition. I urge the Malaysian government to accord Mr. Anwar every legal protection to which he is entitled as a Member of Parliament and as a citizen– and to settle his case in a manner that builds confidence in the impartiality and credibility of the Malaysian judicial system.”

Nation dragged into immoral politics

By Muaz Omar, The Malaysian Insider

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.

Isu diputarbelit BN, saya akan gempur di Parlimen!

Sesi Persidangan Parlimen akan bermula pada 15 Mac 2010 selama 20 hari. Sesi kali dijangka panas memandangkan beberapa perkembangan mutakhir yang menggarap persoalan politik, ekonomi, agama, rasuah dan sistem kehakiman yang bobrok.

Hari ini adalah hari terakhir kemuka soalan bertulis dan lisan kepada Parlimen. Saya pohon penjelasan Kerajaan mengenai pilihanraya kampus yang dibolosi FRU, scorpene baru yang sudah rosak, MiG29 yang terpaksa dijual kepada negara-negara ketiga dengan harga besi buruk, siapa menjual maklumat pertahanan negara, berbilion capital flight ekoran amalan rasuah UMNO dan sistem kehakiman yang dibolosi tangan UMNO, perkhidmatan fomema yang tidak memuaskan, sistem pajakan kenderaan kerajaan dari SPANCO yang merugikan, apa peranan Daim Zainuddin dalam Spanco, dasar luar negara yang dikecam hebat oleh masyarakat antarabangsa dan gesaan supaya kembalikan Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan selaras dengan Perlembagaan Persekutuan.

Saya juga yakin sesi kali ini akan menjadi pentas pertarungan berhubung pendakwaan yang bermotifkan konspirasi politik terhadap Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan juga isu kalimah Allah.
Rakyat Malaysia akan menyaksikan gelagat Pak Menteri untuk menjawab persoalan-persoalan ini.
