It is highly probable that Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim may be arrested soon for supposedly being involved in the Lahad Datu intrusion, said PKR deputy president Azmin Ali.
He said this was the government’s way of trying to divert public attention from its mistakes in handling the Lahad Datu issue.
“For the past 15 years, they [government] have tried blaming Anwar for everything wrong in the country.
“But to link him to the Lahad Datu incident is highly preposterous,” said the Gombak MP.
Lately, pro-Umno dailies have played up a report by Filipino media, the Philippines Daily Inquirer, which claimed that a politician linked to Anwar had invited the Sulu intruders to Sabah.
Despite denials by Anwar and Sulu leader, Sultan Jamalul Kiram III, many have lodged police reports against the former deputy prime minister.
