KUALA LUMPUR – Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim alleged that the statement recording at Bukit Aman today was a political order to pressure him into revealing the names of the Members of Parliament who have given their support to him.

The President of PKR said, based on his understanding throughout the process at the Classified Criminal Investigation Unit D5 of Bukit Aman, it was obvious that the six investigation papers against him were politically motivated.

He said, the police carried out their duty professionally, responsibily and with integrity. He has also given his cooperation to facilitate the investigation.

“My lawyer, Ram Karpal Singh and I have given our full cooperation to the police. It is weird that they question the support of the 121 Members of Parliament (MP).

“It is obvious that I am not here to give my cooperation to the politicians by revealing all those people. That is between Agong and I. It’s none of their business (politicians, police).

“There were six investigations on me and generally, it was targeted so that I reveal the names of the Members of Parliament who supported me. Other questions included the sodomy case, but the majority was aimed at the 121 Members of Parliament,” he told the journalists today.

Anwar claimed that there were political elements to pressure him at these vital hours and most of the questions were political questions, Members of Parliament and his audience with the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA).

According to the President of PKR, he told the police that it is not reasonable for outsiders to know the content of his conversation with the YDPA and it is none of their business.

“Besides that, I would also like to remind you all that I have never mentioned that I have presented the name list of the Members of Parliament to the YDPA on Tuesday. I only mentioned that I’ve presented the letter and supporting documentation (without names) of the 38 PKR MPs to His Majesty,” he said. –MalaysiaGazette

  1. Moo has to realise even as the illegimate PM, he has to follow the rule of law and that the police are not his private property and that he cannot use them as his tools to pressure DSAI to reveal the names of MPs supporting him.
