Stop crying conspiracy and clear the air, Jenapala tells Anwar

(The Star) – The whereabouts of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim at the time a sex video involving a man resembling him was being recorded has become a fresh talking point.

A PKR official yesterday e-mailed to the press copies of Anwar’s Facebook fan pages showing his Twitter entries during the time in question as proof that the Opposition Leader could not have been the man involved in the recording.

The video was purportedly made betweeen 10.23pm and 11.39pm on Feb 21, and according to PKR strategic director Mohd Rafizi Ramli, Anwar had sent nine tweets to his Facebook account in response to tweets from his fans during that period.

However, former PKR secretary-general P. Jenapala has called on Anwar to respond to reports that there was no proof that he had actually tweeted during the time.

He said anyone could have updated Anwar’s Facebook account on his behalf.

“There is no evidence in Anwar’s Twitter account that he had sent out any tweet during the period when the recording was made,” claimed Jenapala, who is now Indian Justice Party pro-tem committee chairman.

He said the Opposition Leader should stop giving lame excuses as he “could not fool all the people all the time”.

“Media members have done their own research and found no tweet from Anwar during that period,” said Jenapala.

China Press had reported that Anwar’s Twitter account showed that he tweeted at 9.20pm and again at 11.39pm on Feb 21.

There was no indication of him tweeting in between that period.

Rafizi in his statement said the nine tweets proved that Anwar was at home at the time of the recording.

“Even if the Twitter entries in Facebook are to be delayed, the delay by the Selective Tweets service would only be about two minutes,” he said, adding that Anwar had tweeted between 10.40pm and 11.08pm that night.

Jenapala said Anwar should quit and clear the air first and urged him to cooperate with the police.

He also called on Anwar to stop crying conspiracy to win the battle of perception.

“If the government is conspiring to finish Anwar off, they do not have to resort to dirty tactics,” he said.

“The government could have easily deregistered the party using all the complaints lodged with the ROS (Registrar of Society).”
