The real reason Anwar is ‘stuck’ with Clare Rewcastle Brown

Let me let you in on a little secret.

On the 7thof July 2019, the day I exposed two ‘Statutory Declarations’ purportedly signed by Dato’ Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, I was met by someone claiming to be Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s most trusted confidante. It was a Sunday, and the Pakatan Harapan Presidential Council meeting was supposed to take place the next day. Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad wasn’t in the best of spirits as he knew of a plot to depose of him.

Prior to the arrival of the person claiming to be Anwar’s confidante (let’s just call him Din), I did some background checks. It turns out that he was who he said he was and was meeting me to try and con me. By then, I already had the aforementioned SDs along with five others, including those ‘belonging’ to Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak, Dato’ Seri Hishammuddin Hussein and Anwar himself. Of course, the SDs were all fake, a fact anyone in his (or her) right mind could easily have seen upon careful inspection of the official seal.

Not many are aware, that on that day, I was already on the verge of exposing six of the seven SDs before implicating Anwar of forgery. However, I decided to meet Din first and later picked only two of the intended six as they coincided perfectly with those Din furnished. I then gave Anwar 24 hours to explain the documents before revealing that they were all fakes. Within an hour of publishing, both Zahid and Muhyiddin posted denials in their respective Facebooks, insisting that the SDs were part of an attempt to sully their reputations.
