Meanwhile Zaid Ibrahim has joined PKR, as announced by Anwar Ibrahim. This is well and good for a politician like Anwar to prepare himself for the inevitable. If Anwar Ibrahim is jailed I am sure Zaid will be made the PKR de facto leader. Assuming BN loses the next general elections, which I doubt it will, so theoretically Zaid will then be the next PM?! Ssshuddddder!
On the front page of a Malay tabloid, Sinaran Harian, the daughter of the country's opposition leader Anwar Bin Ibrahim, Nurul Izzah, expressed her fear that her father might not get a fair trial come this July. The fear is unfounded.
It is only fair and natural for he children to be concerned about their parents well being and vice versa.
Her father is to stand trial on charges of sodomy brought on him by the accuser Saiful Bahari. It is also natural Anwar may not have faith in the Malaysian judicial system, well we cannot really blame him for what he believes that he went through.
My only concern is that Anwar may have a selective conviction with his frame of mind, in so far as the Malaysian judicial goes. For example, when foreign minister Anifah Aman who said in Washington in front of the US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton that Anwar had offered him a DPM post if he would join the opposition, and Anwar retaliated by suing Anifah for RM100 million.
Tell me does Anwar really believes that he could or would win if he thinks Malaysian judicial will be unfair to hear his suit against Anifah? Or may be in his mind he still believes that our judicial system is really not all that bad compared to other countries in the region.
But then if he does not have faith in Malaysian "crooked" judicial system he should have taken his case to the World Court, but he filed his suit with the "flawed" Malaysian judicial system..sigh!
In his up coming sodomy charge in July I believe the court has every right to hear what the VICTIM Saiful Bahari has to say and what proof he has to implicate this "very respectable and well known internationally a politician" on a sodomy charges.
Likewise Anwar has the right to defend himself with proof that he did not do what he was accused of doing. But until then I don't think any Malaysian, Nurrul Izzah included, who loves the country should be making disparaging remarks about the country and its judicial system. Such remarks, at the end of the day, can only damage the country.
If the court found him guilty he will be punished, if not it is well and good for him and his family. If he is found innocent may be he can find it within his heart to reapir the damage that he has done to the country and to the Malay unity! I am being sincere here!
Meanwhile, the High Court judge, Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah, has set the date for the sodomy trial from July 1st until July 24th. Meanwhile our prayer is to you Nurul Izzah for you have every right to be fearful of your father. And to you Anwar good luck!
