About-Turns

Anwar Ibrahim’s ex-aide Rahimi Osman had alleged that he had been coerced into signing two statutory declarations in 2008 in the former’s favor.

Soon after, yet another aide, Rasid Rosdi has come out to claim that he was confined at a hotel and compelled to sign a statutory declaration (also in 2008) under duress.

Isn’t it strange that suddenly, these two came out of the rotting woodwork to make public claims of intimidation? I smell a rat, don’t you? This is a well-organized disclosure – I congratulate the plotters.

These about-turns are becoming discomfortingly regular. I recalled Najib’s own about-turn. Najib had initially denied ever meeting Saiful Bukhari Azlan but later admitted they had met. A day after their meeting, Saiful lodged the police report which led to the ongoing trial against Anwar.


Arsenal came from behind to beat Birmingham 2-1 and returned second in the table. It was the latter who went ahead against the run of play when striker Nikola Zigic headed home Keith Fahey's cross (33). Fortunately, the former kept their composure and in the second half, Samir Nasri leveled from the spot after a foul on Marouane Chamakh (41). And soon after, Chamakh collected Jack Wilshere’s pass before dancing around West Brom defenders and sliding the ball hom (47) to give Arsenal an important win.
