Anwar accuses prosecution of falsifying affidavit, lodges police reports against AG, IGP

By Asrul Hadi Abdullah Sani, The Malaysian Insider

Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim alleged today that Deputy Public Prosecutor Hanafiah Zakariah and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) legal and public prosecution director Datuk Razak Musa had falsified an affidavit in his ongoing sodomy case.

Razak and Hanafiah were part of the prosecution team that filed the affidavit against Anwar’s motion for the high court to “set aside and quash” the ongoing sodomy trial against him.

Anwar wants to bring the “black eye case” into the second sodomy trial to prove that both sodomy cases are politically motivated prosecutions hatched by the Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail and Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan.

In the affidavit, Hanafiah stated that all three retired judges in a panel set up to investigate allegations that the AG and IGP fabricated evidence in Anwar’s black eye beating 10 years ago had cleared Gani and Musa of any criminal involvement.

However, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz had told Parliament in March that one of the three judges on the panel had found a case against the AG and Anwar argued that this proved the discrepancies in Razak and Hanafiah’s affidavit.

Anwar lodged a police report today to back his claims.
