Prime Minister Najib Razak was never involved in any way in Anwar Ibrahim’s Sodomy 2 case, former IGP Musa Hassan told a press conference in Petaling Jaya today.
The ex-IGP stressed that Najib had no control over the Sodomy 2 investigation.
“Najib was never involved or interfered in police investigation
“Police have acted solely based on complainant’s report and statement.
“None of the politicians are involved in the police investigation and we will not allow such chances to take place,” Musa clarified when asked by reporters on whether Najib was involved in the Sodomy 2 case, as claimed by certain quarters.
“I wish to stress here that we (civil servants) are nobody’s running dogs.”
Musa was the IGP and Najib was the deputy prime minister when Anwar’s Sodomy 2 case first emerged after Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan lodged a police report that the PKR leader had sodomised him in 2008.
Former PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim is currently serving a five-year jail term in the Sungai Buloh Prison after the Federal Court on Feb 10, 2015, upheld his conviction and sentence imposed by the Court of Appeal.
On Dec 14, the Federal Court led by Chief Justice of Malaya Zulkefli Ahmad Makinudin dismissed former PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim’s bid to judicial review his sodomy conviction.
In pointing out his judgment, Justice Zulkefli said it was a review of Federal Court’s decision and the appellant had raised the issue of miscarriage of justice.
The others on the bench were Chief Justice of Sabah and Sarawak Richard Malanjum, and Federal Court Justices Hasan Lah, Abu Samah Nordin and Zaharah Ibrahim.
On Jan 9, 2012, the High Court acquitted and discharged Anwar of the charge on the grounds that the court could not be 100% certain on the integrity of samples taken for DNA testing from the alleged victim.
However, the Court of Appeal overturned the High Court judgment and found Anwar guilty of sodomising Mohd Saiful, and held that the trial judge had erred in his findings about the samples, which were based on the evidence of two expert witnesses called by the defence.
Then the Federal Court said it upheld the conviction and the sentence imposed by the Court of Appeal after taking into consideration the seriousness of the offence and Anwar having allegedly taken advantage of his position as the employer of a young victim.
Anwar is alleged to have committed the offence at Unit 11-5-1 of Desa Damansara Condominium in Jalan Setiakasih, Bukit Damansara here between 3.10pm and 4.30pm on June 26, 2008.
