(The Star) - Kedah police denied arresting any “clone” of Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Kedah CPO Datuk Ahmad Ibrahim said they did not come across any individual from Thailand who looked like Anwar.
“Allegations that we detained Anwar's clone is baseless,” he said, adding that looking like someone else was not a criminal offence that warranted arrest.
He said this in response to an article on an online portal that claimed that Anwar's clone had returned to Thailand and vowed to return (to Malaysia) to reveal the truth.
PKR's Sungai Acheh candidate Badrul Hisham Shahrin had reportedly claimed that two individuals from Thailand had failed to attend the “Revelation of Anwar clone” ceramah in Permatang Pauh on Friday because the police had arrested them in Kedah.
The ceramah was aimed at clearing Anwar's name following the release of a sex video two years ago showing a man resembling Anwar in compromising positions with a female dubbed the “China doll”.
