RPK's Claim

Raja Petra Kamarudin (or RPK as he is more famously known) is not only a fugitive blogger, but he is also a writer of fiction, of tall tales! And worse, he is a serial liar! His bizarre claim that Deputy Public Prosecutor Farah Azlina Latif (who was coincidentally on the team prosecuting Anwar Ibrahim for sodomy) was romantically involved with complainant and lead witness Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan (Webpage http://www.malaysia-today.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=33284:the-bizarre-case-of-sodomy-2&catid=20:no-holds-barred&Itemid=100087, posted July 22, 2010) had cast detrimental aspersions on the innocent Saiful! How dare RPK? Just because Saiful dared to wag his accusing finger at Anwar does not give RPK the license to weave a web of deceit in order to put the former in a negative light! Stop concocting bull, RPK! Shame on you!

Five days later (i.e. July 27), Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail himself confirmed that love-struck Farah (left) had been dropped double-quick from the prosecution team in Anwar’s sodomy trial (Webpage http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/dpp-dropped-over-alleged-affair-with-saiful/, posted July 28, 2010). I was taken aback.

Aiyoh, even now, I am equally very confused! If RPK has always been depicted as a fibber and if Farah is innocent, why did the AG take the latter off the case? It is as if the AG is saying she did without saying she did, if you know what I mean! Bewildering and befuddling, that’s what this is!

So let me try to get this straight. Does this mean that actually, RPK was right despite all the gratuitous accusations hurled at him by other buffoons?

Karpal Singh and others in the defense team have applied to have the sodomy charge against Anwar be struck out – their claim that the prosecution team led by Solicitor-General II Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden has been compromised as a result of the alleged relationship (Webpage http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/saiful-insists-truth-will-prevail/, posted August 02).

Anwar’s contention is that since Saiful (left) was allegedly having an affair with Farah, he would be privy to important trial documents as Farah was part of the prosecution team until two Mondays ago.

The judge will hear detailed arguments on August 09.
