Hello mommy,

Anwar was released after his statement and minimal medical checkup was taken. But why he insist in giving his DNA to the authorities?

Do he suspect that the authorities will create false evidences or he is scared that he will be found guilty for the case charged?

You must have the brain of a grasshopper (to use the words of Dr Bakri in relation to Ezam). Do you know what they did in 1998? They said Anwar's DNA had shown that he was with a woman. His caution is understandable given the events of 1998 when several questions were raised over the handling of evidence by the police and the Chemistry Department. In one instance, police said that semen samples taken from a mattress yielded the DNA of Anwar and a woman. But we were told sodomy? Huh!

The defence challenged the evidence, saying that that the results would not have been reliable because Anwar's blood sample was kept for over two months without an anti-coagulant but the Chemistry Dept refused to clear the air and the govt refused to probe the matter and we know the rest is history. May be you are a toddler, can be forgiven for that.

Haa, kan dah dibebaskan, bukan nak sumbat terus dalam jail pun. Yang ramai2 pergi berkumpul buat kecoh suruh lepaskan Anwar tu buat apa? Biar lah polis buat siasatan, dia dipanggil pun untuk membantu siasatan je. Bukan apa pun.

Anwar dah dilepaskan.. Yang penyokong Anwar tu dok kalut sangat berkumpul pasai apa? Menyusahkan diri sendiri ja... Anwar ditahan untuk buat medical check up ja.. Tapi medical check up sikit2 ja. Beliau tak bagi DNA beliau. Pasai apa agaknya? Beliau takut jika beliau benar2 didapati bersalah kut..
