Police Take Anwar’s Statement Over Allegation of Making False Report on Sex Video

(Bernama) – Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was called in today to give his statement on the allegation that he had made a false report on the sex video issue last March.

Anwar arrived at the Kepong police station at 3.15pm and gave an hour long statement. He was accompanied by his wife, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who is also Parti Keadilan Rakyat president.
The opposition leader said he was called under Section 182 of the Penal Code for making a false report.
“I was called to give my statement because there is a report made by DSP Shanmugam against me regarding the report (in which Anwar denied that he was the man in the video) I made earlier,” he told reporters.
In March, Anwar lodged a police report at the Dang Wangi police headquarters on the sex video, which was screened to a select group of media representatives at Carcosa Seri Negara here, and denied that he was the man in the video.
