The first question is whether the Police has established that when Anwar lodged the police report that he was suffering from arsenic poisoning on Sept. 10, Anwar knew that the Melbourne Gribbles pathology laboratory report that his urine taken on August 18 had dangerously high level of arsenic was false or that the urine sample did not belong to him.
The second question is whether the Police would act without fear or favour under Section 500 of the Penal Code, regardless whether the person concerned is in government or in opposition.
Section 500 provides that "Whoever defames another shall be punished
with imprisonment for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine,
or both". Section 499 provides the following definition of this offence
"Whoever, by words either spoken or intended to be read or by signs, or by visible representations, makes or publishes any imputation concerning any person, intending to harm, or knowing or having reason to believe that such imputation will harm the reputation of such person".
Will the Police take action against the following under Section 500
for false statements and even lies:
The third question is even more interesting. Apart from the police
report on arsenic poisoning, Anwar has also lodged four other reports alleging
corruption and abuses of power at the highest levels of government
leadership, naming in particular the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Dr. Mahathir
Mohamad, the first Finance Minister, Tun Daim Zainuddin, the Minister for
International Trade and Industry, Datuk Paduka
Rafidah Aziz, the two highest law officers in the land, namely the Attorney-General
Tan Sri Mohtar Abdullah and Datuk Gani Patail, the former Malacca
Chief Minister, Tan Sri Rahim Thamby Cik, involving scandals and
malpractices like the RM7 billion Perwaja scandal - all supported
by documentary evidence concerning such allegations and abuses of power.
In only pinpointing that the police does not rule the possibility of taking action against Anwar for false report in the arsenic poisoning case, is the Police admitting and confirming that Anwar’s four police reports about corruption and abuses of power naming Mahathir, Daim, Rafidah, Mohtar Abdullah, Rahim Tamby Cik are not false reports? If so, why has the Police been so tardy in its investigations into these four Anwar police reports about corruption and abuses of power in high political places? And if not, is the Police also going to charge Anwar for lodging four false reports on corruption and abuses of power naming the top leaders in the country?
