A Farcical Trial

I hardly write about this case because as far as I am concerned, it has been a farce all along. Just to illustrate. The High Court, today, heard that two more unidentified DNA profiles were found on complainant Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan (left), apart from the earlier 3 identified by government chemist Dr Seah Lay Hong.

Yet Saiful who has filed a complaint against Anwar accusing him of sodomizing him on June 26, 2008, did not name anyone else. I can only conclude that this Saiful fella has been very, very naughty! Unless of course, the DNA evidence had been planted – but that would cast incredulity on the integrity of the authorities! I cannot believe that the latter can be so treacherously dishonest as to unscrupulously manipulate evidence just so to put Anwar in prison. That is so Hollywood!

Yeap, the Anwar sodomy 2 trial is becoming bizarre by the day. There are already inconsistencies in the medical examination, missing gaps in the forms and it appears that standard operating procedures were casually ignored. If all of the above are insufficient to throw out the case, then what is?

The Star reported on Monday (p N23) that Sabah Marine Operations Force (MOF) has launched a hunt for the pirates who attacked supply vessels plying the state’s west coast twice in less than a week. State MOF chief Asst Comm Abdul Manaf Othman said all patrol craft were being deployed as part of the special operation codenamed Ops Barracuda. “Our operations are focused on waters between Labuan and Kudat in northern Sabah,” he said yesterday. But what’s the point? The pirates will already have escaped! Somebody’s sleeping on the job again!
