PM: IGP, AG barred from Anwar probe – Malaysiakini

The Inspector-General of Police and the Attorney-General will be excluded from an investigation against opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim who has been accused of sodomy. (Malaysiakini - IGP, AG barred from Anwar probe: PM and the Star here )

The Prime Minister said Tan Sri Musa Hassan and Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail will not be part of the investigating team.

Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the two were excluded because Anwar had earlier lodged a police report against them, alleging that they had fabricated evidence against him in the infamous “black eye” incident in 1998. (read here Anwar lodges report against IGP and AG ).

“They would not be taking up any role in the investigating team,” he said yesterday.

In the 1998 investigation of sodomy charges against Anwar, Musa was the senior investigating officer while Abdul Gani was the head of prosecution.

During the press conference, Abdullah was also asked if the two should be suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.

“They are not involved directly, the investigating officer has not made any reference to them, so I do not see why they should be suspended,” he said

skrg ni Musa Hitam dan AG dah tak involve hal ini. Jadi tak tau lah adakah penyokong2 anwar (dan juga anwar sendiri) akan buat bising lagi. Pak Lah BUKAN Tun M, jadi isu kredibiliti dan penyelewengan kuasa tidak mungkin berlaku.

Yeah, right! He also said Parliment won't be dissolved the next day. And him getting married again was 'rumour, rumour, rumour'...

They understand the complexities of the past (10 years ago), and understand their involvement will be exploited by anwar. So they will stay away and not get involved so as to not jeopardize the case.

I wonder what else Anwar has in mind to cover his a** up.

anon. Try not to be so simplistic. rumours rumours rumours. Have you ever heard any politicians speaking nothing but the truth? APart from Nik Aziz who is the mursyidul am, no other person I feel is innocent of not telling "lies". You mean, Anwar and other PR members are such saints themselves?

even Musa and AG not "directly" invloved, they can "indirectly" invloved. Who will beleive in police force after the al incident taken place recently. The best way is to give it to indepedent and respectful committee to investigate anwar, then i can clear my doubt.

A very honorable statement by the PM indeed,
this is only only half the job done.
I am not convinced, only when these two, AG and IGP are suspended or given long paid leave, they will still, have the ability to put their dirty fingers at the pie! PM is trying to con the public that justice is seen to be done. Who can trust these mongrels?

There is a BIG VERY BIG difference if Pakatan and DSAI comes to power vs the current BeeEnd power structure and you should highlight it in your blog.

If DSAI ever comes to power, people should not worry, because DAP and PAS comes to power also as EQUAL partners. Lim Kit Siang and Tok Guru will not just let DSAI do as he wants.

This will truly be a check and balance govt. Likewise , PAS cant do as they want without angering DAP and also DAP cant do as they want without angering PAS. Because if any of the 3 walks out of Pakatan, Pakatan Rakyat will fall as the Govt. So , all 3 parties work together!

That is the difference vs DSAI 10 years ago when he was in BeeEnd.

In BeeEnd, everybody knows Badawi and Najis can do as they want. UMNO rules BeeEnd as Superme King. All the rest, MCA, MIC, Gerakan etc etc etc are just running dogs! That is why you have corruption galore!


That is the real difference between a Pakatan Rakyat Federal Govt and the current corrupt govt we have.

It is not sufficient. Both IGP and AG should be relieved of their positions until investigation on them over. just like Anwar is being accused these two guys too are being accused with sufficient evident.
In view of this PAk Lah must act to show he is impartial.

i did my normal surfing around the blogs, and i find majority would like the 2 fellas to go on leave and play play far far away, until everyting is all settled. that would be the best solution. So these two got to decide where they want to fly their kites laa

Siapa kata takde yang kritik bila Pak Lah bagi jaminan Musa Hasan dan Gani Patail tidak akan campur tangan dalam sisatan kes Anwar kali ini. Ada yang dah mula mengkritik.

Mereka kata jaminan Pak Lah itu seolah2 Gani Patail dan Musa Hasan memang terlibat dalam kes Anwar 1998. Begitulah keadaannya orang yang dah memang benci pada Pak Lah. Bagi mereka setiap perkataan yang lahir dari mulut Pak Lah harus dikritik dan ditentang habis-habisan..

Kadang terfikir juga. Agak2 apalah lagi tindakan yang harus diambil oleh Pak Lah bagi memuaskan hati sema pihak. Bila Pak Lah kata 2x5=8, diorang akan bantah dan kritik sebab jawapan salah, jika Pak Lah kata 2x5=10 pun diorang tetap akan kritik walaupun betul.. Hmmm...

Nothing he does will ever be right in the eyes of hardcore Anwaritas eh? I think it's about time the PM makes a stance about the involvement of those two. In any case, with the amount of international limelight on this, I believe they will be more vigilant in going about this sodomy business. The exclusion is good, credits be given to this appearance of justice.

check and balance my arse! In PR knowing the vast diffs of agendas of each party COMBINED with a party with no system and no (proven) track record, it will be doomed to failure more rapid than u can say "NEW GOVERNMENT!" Just look back what top party leaders doing, bickering and all talk of accusing and little or no action!
