KUALA LUMPUR, April 3 — A local poll has found that a majority of people believe that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was merely a victim of character assassination in the latest sex video scandal.
The poll, conducted by independent survey house Merdeka Centre last week, also discovered that respondents agree the video had been released to destroy the former deputy prime minister’s political career.
The survey was conducted via the telephone between March 24 and 27 and has an estimated margin of error of ± 4.40 per cent. A total of 504 respondents were selected via random stratified sampling method along the lines of state, ethnicity, gender and age.
The respondents comprised 59 per cent Malays, 32 per cent Chinese and nine per cent Indians.
According to survey findings obtained by The Malaysian Insider, of the 504 respondents polled, 85 per cent were aware of the existence of the video while 15 per cent were not.
A total of 45 per cent said Anwar was a victim of political character assassination while 22 per cent agreed that the leader was a man of poor moral standing.
Twenty-seven per cent said they were unsure and six per cent declined comment.
Anwar is currently undergoing his second sodomy trial.
When asked for their views on why video had surfaced, 39 per cent said they believed it was a ploy to destroy the Permatang Pauh MP’s career.
A total of 24 per cent said they were unsure while 22 per cent said it was likely designed to distract voters in the looming Sarawak state polls this April 16.
Only nine per cent said that the video was a part of Anwar’s ploy to gain public sympathy while four per cent said the video was authentic.
The 21-minute long video features a man with striking resemblance to Anwar engaging in sex acts with a woman, believed to be a foreign prostitute.
The “Datuk T” trio behind the caper, namely former Malacca chief minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Tamby Chik, businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay and Perkasa treasurer Datuk Shuib Lazim, have insisted that Anwar is the man in the video.
The three have since given statements to the police on the matter and surrendered the original clip, along with an Omega watch, which purportedly belongs to the opposition leader.
The clip first surfaced on March 21 when a private media screening was held at the historic Carcosa Seri Negara, which once housed the colonial British Resident, and later became a luxury hotel.
Following the screening, Anwar denied that he was the man, and called the emergence of the video recording a “scurrilous attack” against him, his family and Pakatan Rakyat.
The pact’s leaders have since gone on damage control-mode but analysts have predicted that the latest scandal would tarnish both Anwar’s and PR’s image and could affect the opposition’s chances in Sarawak.
When describing the outcome of the latest survey, Merdeka Centre director Ibrahim Suffian observed that the results reflected a significant level of public uncertainty over the video’s authenticity.
“A lot of grey areas with the public, denoting possibly uncertainty, some hesitation or simply the lack of information when talking about Anwar, given that most publicly available news about him tends to be one-sided and negative,” he said.
This was because the survey had also showed that while most people did not believe that Anwar was the man in the video, many also said they were unsure.
In total, 51 per cent did not believe that Anwar was the man in the 21-minute recording while a significant 29 per cent were unsure.
A total of 17 per cent believed in the video while three per cent strongly disbelieved.
When asked if the existence of the video would affect their confidence in PR, 48 per cent disagreed and 14 per cent said they were unsure.
Despite this however, a whopping 41 per cent said agreed that the latest caper would tarnish their view of PR.
Anwar was sacked as deputy prime minister in 1998 and charged and convicted of sodomy. He spent six years in prison before the country’s top court overturned the conviction in 2004.
After his release, Anwar led his PKR, DAP and PAS to record gains in Election 2008, denying Barisan Nasional (BN) its traditional two-thirds parliamentary majority and cemented the three parties’ status as serious challengers for power with the formation of the PR pact.
But he was arrested later the same year and charged again in court on another sodomy accusation involving a former male aide, a charge he has denied. - Malaysian Insider

1998:Anwar kena pecat

anwar mahathir Pemecatan Anwar Ibrahim September 1998. Sah!!!!
Sudah lebih 10 tahun berlaku sejak krisis yang berlaku pada September 1998 di manapemecatan Anwar Ibrahim yang pada masa itu merupakan Timbalan Perdana Menteri Malaysia kepada Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. Siapa sangka? Sejak daripada itu, landskap politik di Malaysia terus berubah. Dan hari ini Mahkamah Persekutuan telah membuat keputusan di mana keputusan Tun Dr. Mahathir pada masa itu dalam pemecatan Anwar Ibrahim pada tahun 2 September adalah sah. Ya…SAH!!!!
Pemecatan Anwar Ibrahim daripada jawatan timbalan perdana menteri dan menteri kewangan pada 2 September 1998 adalah sah. Keputusan ke atas kes pemecatan Anwar Ibrahim itu dicapai sebulat suara oleh Mahkamah Persekutuan hari ini.
Presiden Mahkamah Rayuan, Tan Sri Alauddin Mohd Sheriff berkata Yang di-Pertuan Agong, sebagai raja berperlembagaan akan bertindak atas nasihat perdana menteri dan kabinet bagi membatalkan pelantikan berkenaan.
Menurut Alauddin, hakim tidak sangsi bahawa perdana menteri telah menasihatkan yang di-Pertuan Agong untuk membatalkan pelantikan Anwar. Tambahan lagi, katanya, terdapat afidavit oleh pegawai khas Yang di-Pertuan Agong yang tidak mempertikaikan bahawa baginda telah memperkenankan keputusan tersebut.
Tidak mempertikaikannya, tambah Alauddin, (boleh dianggap sebagai) satu pengakuan. Mahkamah kemudiannya menolak permohonan Anwar itu dengan kos. Selain Alauddin, dua panel hakim ialah Datuk Mohd Ghazali Mohd Yusof dan Datuk Abdull Hamid Embong.
Dalam reaksinya, Anwar mendakwa Yang di-Pertuan Agong tidak dinasihatkan dan tidak memperkenankan keputusan perdana menteri ketika itu, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad untuk membatalkan pelantikannya itu.
Katanya, Tengku Jaafar (Yang di-Pertuan Agong ketika itu) telah bertemu dengannya di Munich “di mana baginda telah memberitahunya kepada saya”. “Yang di-Pertuan Agong berkata baginda tidak memperkenannya dan sedih dengan pemecatan saya kerana ia tidak dilakukan mengikut perlembagaan,” dakwa Anwar lagi.
“Ia disaksikan oleh Tuanku Najihah dan (isteri Anwar Datuk Seri Dr) Wan Azizah (Wan Ismail). Jelas ianya adalah satu tindakan yang salah kerana Yang di-Pertuan Agong tidak memperkenan keputusan tersebut tetapi dipaksa berbuat demikian,” dakwa Anwar Ibrahim lagi.
Anwar Ibrahim membandingkan keputusan hari ini dengan kes Perak, yang menetapkan bahawa sultan mempunyai kuasa mutlak untuk memecat menteri besar “tetapi dalam kes saya, perdana menteri yang mempunyai kuasa tersebut”.
Peguam Karpal Singh berkata, keputusan hari ini menunjukkan yang Dr Mahathir adalah seorang diktator ketika menjadi perdana menteri. Keputusan hari ini dibuat 12 tahun selepas permohonan berkenaan difailkan pada 1998. Ia ditolak oleh Mahkamah Tinggi pada 24 Disember 1998 tanpa melalui perbicaraan penuh.
Mahkamah Rayuan pula menolak rayuan Anwar pada 25 April 2007, dengan memutuskan bahawa beliau telah dipecat secara sah. Isu ini berpusat kepada surat pemecatan Anwar Ibrahim dari Dr Mahathir bertarikh 2 September 1998. MalaysiaKini

Anwar Ibrahim- Liwat Episod 2

Malaysian Opp. Leader Anwar Ibrahim Denies Secks Tape Allegations

Malaysian Opp. Leader Anwar Ibrahim Denies Secks Tape AllegationsMalaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who is on currently trial for sodomy, on Monday denied allegations he was the man in a secks tape shown to the media. According to online news portal journalist Sam Tan, who was allowed to view the 17-minute tape, it showed someone looking like the former deputy premier engaging in secks with an un-identified woman in what appeared to be a hotel room. Anwar Ibrahim is a Malaysian politician who served as Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister from 1993 to 1998.
If convicted, Anwar could be jailed for up to 20 years. The Malay Mail/Samsul Said. While on Friday, the protesters, many of them Muslim-Malays, gathered after Friday prayers to protest against the protracted trial which they say is a waste of time and resources.
Anwar said he was at home meeting with political staffers when the incident purportedly an assignation with a female prostitute in a hotel room supposedly took place in February. “I even have proof that I was sending tweets at the time the alleged incident was said to have occurred,” he said.
Anwar, a former deputy premier who was sacked and jailed in 1998 on separate sodomy and corruption charges widely seen as politically motivated, said the tape was another “dirty and obscene” attempt to end this career.  Mr Anwar’s lawyers argued that there’s no legal basis for the prosecution to compel Mr Anwar to give his DNA.

Kes profil tinggi di malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR – Empat mayat dipercayai termasuk jutawan kosmetik, Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya (gambar) dan tiga rakannya yang dilaporkan hilang sejak 13 hari lalu ditemui dekat pantai Morib, Selangor semalam.
Kesemua mereka dibunuh dengan kejam sebelum dibuang dan dibakar di ladang ternakan ayam dekat Tanjung Layang, Morib.
Setakat ini polis sudah menahan enam individu berhubung penemuan mayat-mayat tersebut.
Motif pembunuhan belum dapat dipastikan.
Kehilangan Sosilawati, 47, bersama tiga lelaki lain dipercayai didalangi seorang ahli perniagaan bergelar ‘Datuk’ yang dikatakan individu terakhir yang ditemui jutawan kosmetik itu ketika urus niaga tanah dijalankan di Banting, Selangor pada 30 Ogos lalu.
‘Datuk’ berkenaan yang mempunyai ramai kenalan di kalangan orang kenamaan dipercayai berperanan sebagai broker dalam penjualan tanah bernilai RM4 juta di Pulau Pinang.
Satu sumber memberitahu, ahli perniagaan itu dipercayai mempunyai banyak petunjuk bagi membantu siasatan kes, termasuk mengesan lokasi keempat-empat mangsa disembunyikan.
“Dia dikatakan pernah terbabit dalam kegiatan penipuan jual beli tanah, dipercayai didalangi sindiket terancang. Malah, beberapa laporan polis pernah dibuat terhadapnya sebelum ini berkaitan urus niaga tanah.
“Difahamkan, ahli perniagaan terbabit mahir ‘menghilangkan’ pelanggannya,” kata satu sumber ketika dihubungi Kosmo! Ahad semalam.
Jelasnya, sebelum ini dua pelanggan dilaporkan hilang selepas mengadakan urus niaga tanah dengannya dan sehingga kini masih belum ditemui, namun lelaki tersebut menafikan semua dakwaan itu.
Ujar beliau, maklumat turut menyatakan ahli perniagaan itu sering terlepas daripada tindakan undang-undang kerana mempunyai hubungan istimewa dengan orang kenamaan, selain mahir dalam bidang perundangan.
Sosilawati yang merupakan pengasas produk kecantikan Nouvelle Visages dilaporkan hilang pada 30 Ogos lalu.
Turut hilang ialah peguamnya, Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32; pegawai bank CIMB cawangan Kampung Baru, Noorhisham Mohammad, 38; dan seorang lelaki, Kamaruddin Shansuddin, 44, yang dikatakan pemandu peribadi jutawan itu.
Sementara itu, tinjauan Kosmo! Ahad ke rumah Sosilawati di Taman Harmonis Gombak semalam mendapati pintu pagar rumah tersebut bertutup dan tidak nampak seperti suasana berhari raya.
Seorang lelaki yang merupakan pekebun di rumah berkenaan yang enggan dikenali memberitahu, keluarga Sosilawati masih belum mendapat apa-apa perkembangan berkenaan kehilangan jutawan itu daripada pihak polis.
Katanya, pihak keluarga juga itu enggan diganggu. Beliau memberitahu, hari raya tetap disambut meskipun tanpa adanya tuan rumah.

The Altantuya Shaaribuu’s case: how and why she was killed

The Altantuya Shaaribuu’s case: how and why she was killed
Published in the Liberation French newspaper on 5th March 2009
This is the English translation of the Liberation French article:
Shaaribuu Setev is a bitter and disappointed man. Yet, behind the saddened face of this Mongolian lies a fierce determination. Seated in a sofa in the lobby of an Ulaan Baataar hotel rattled by gushes of a freezing wind, this sixty years old man is ready to fight. His face features, hardened by the suffering and the stern climate, and his intense gaze tell all. “My daughter has been murdered by Malaysians on Malaysian territory. And they did not have even offer a word of apology,” states this professor of psychology at the National University of Mongolia.
The assassination of his daughter, Altantuya Shaaribuu, took place in October 2006. This was a murder unlike others in a region where business conflicts or petty politics are often settled with a gun. Everything in this case, which started in 2002 when the French Spanish company Armaris concluded the sale of three submarines to the Malaysian government for the amount of one billion Euros, is out of the ordinary.
The impact of the “Altantuya case” in France, Malaysia and Mongolia has yet to reach its climax. The murder of the 28 year old Mongolian was the result of a “commission” at the price of 114 million Euros by Armaris to its Malaysian counterpart. This “commission,” which was acknowledged by the Malaysian government in front of the Parliament in Kuala Lumpur, has triggered a chain of events that has led to the assassination of Altantuya and the disappearance of several key witnesses in the case.
A report from the Malaysian police, written on 19th november 2006 and which has been kept secret until now (can be read below), reveals dry and precise descriptions as to how this young woman, a member of Asian high society, has been killed. In this document, one of the killers, a policeman of the Malaysian Special Branch named Sirul Omar, replied to the questions of an officer at a police station close to the murder scene. “When the Chinese woman saw that I was taking a gun, she begged me to spare her, saying she was pregnant. Azilah (the commanding officer of Sirul) grabbed her and [threw] her on the ground. I immediately shot the left side of her face. Then Azilah took off her clothes and put them in a black plastic bag. Azilah noticed that her hand was still moving. He ordered me to shoot again, which I did”, said Sirul. This is the first confirmation of Altantuya’s assassins’ identity. “Then we carried her body into the woods. Azilah wrapped the explosives around her legs, her abdomen and her head, and we exploded her.”
The revelation of this report in the French newspaper Liberation is the latest chapter in this colourful and dramatic saga featuring French weapon sellers, Mongolian Shaman, and Malaysian politicians. This case is explosive not only for the Malaysian government, since the deputy Prime minister Najib Razak (who is scheduled to become Prime minister at the end of March) is suspected of having links to the case, but also because it could embarrass the DCNS, this French company specialising in military shipbuilding. The French Spanish company Armaris, which sold two Scorpène and one Agosta submarines to Malaysia in June 2002, was bought by DCNS in 2007.
With her magnetic beauty and sophistication, Altantuya is reminiscent of the troubling image of a Far East Mata Hari. She grew up in Saint Petersburg (Russia), then studied at the Institute of Economic Management in Beijing. Besides speaking English, she is fluent in Russian, Chinese and Korean. The fateful cycle for Altantuya came into gear when she met Abdul Razak Baginda in Hong Kong in 2004. Baginda is a security expert and the director of the Malaysian Strategic Research Centre, a pro-government think-tank. The two quickly became romantically involved. Altantuya, nicknamed Tuya by her friends, proved to be a useful assistant, helping Baginda translate from Russian to English.
Whereas Altantuya is young and beautiful, the rich and alluring Baginda is a well known figure of the Kuala Lumpur’s elite, notably because of his proximity to the Malaysian Deputy Prime minister and minister of Defense Najib Razak (he is also his security affairs adviser). Baginda parades in the most exclusive circles of Kuala Lumpur, sometimes accompanied by his legitimate wife.
In March 2005, Altantuya and Baginda departed for Europe, touring France, Germany, Italy and Portugal in the red Ferrari of Baginda, staying in posh hotels and dining in the finest restaurants of the old Continent. This trip, however, was not only for tourism: the contract for the sale of the submarines had been signed in 2002, but important details had yet to be settled. “We knew that Baginda was used by Deputy Prime minister Najib Razak as an intermediary for weapons systems deals, especially the high level ones,” says a regional security affairs expert.
At the end of March 2005 the couple was in Paris, where they met with Najib Razak. A picture shows the threesome in a Parisian private club. “Tuya showed me the pix. She said that one of the men was her boyfriend, Abdul Razak Baginda, and the other the “big boss”, Najib Razak. I asked her if they were brothers because of the names, but she said no, and that Najib Razak was the ‘prime minister’”, said Amy, Altantuya’s best friend (Najib Razak has sworn on the Koran that he has never met Altantuya). According to a private detective, now in hiding in India, the beautiful Tuya was also the occasional mistress of the deputy Prime minister, who was introduced to her by Baginda at the end of 2004.
The story became dramatic when, in October 2006, Altantuya was informed that the commission paid by the French-Spanish company Armaris had arrived on a Kuala Lumpur bank account. It had been paid to Perimekar, a company owned by Baginda. Altantuya rushed to Kuala Lumpur, in order to claim her share of the commission from Baginda ; she said she was entitled to 500,000 dollars. Baginda and Altantuya broke up prior to this. A jealous Rosmah Mansor, the feared businesswoman and wife of Najib Razak, objected any payment to Altantuya. Altantuya arrived in Kuala Lumpur with two other Mongolian women, one of them was a Shaman responsible for putting a spell on Baginda if he refused to pay. For several days, Altantuya harassed her ex-lover.
On the 18th of October, Baginda could no longer tolerate the daily scenes made by Altantuya in front of his house. He contacted the Director of the Special Branch, Musa Safrie, who happened to also be Najib Razak’s aide de camp. On October 19th, 2006, a little before 9 pm, two police officers of the Special Branch, Azilah Hadridan and Sirul Omar, were sent in front of Baginda’s house where Altantuya was gesticulating and shouting. They had the order of “neutralising the Chinese woman.” They kidnapped her, and drove her ten kilometers away and shot her several times. Then, they destroyed her body with C4 explosives, a type which can only be obtained from within the Defense Ministry. Her entry into Malaysia was erased from the immigration records. It would appear that Altantuya had never come to Malaysia, because there is no trace left of her.
There is no perfect crime. The taxi driver hired by Altantuya for the day did not appreciate that his passenger was kidnapped under his eyes without payment for the fare. He took note of the registration plate of the kidnapper’s car and filed a complaint at the local police station. In a few days, the police identified the car and realised that it was a government vehicle.
Events unfolded that even the Deputy Prime minister Najib Razak could not impede. He tried to cover the case. A few hours before the arrest of Baginda, he sent him a SMS: “I will see the Inspector General of Police at 11 am today… The problem will be solved. Be cool”. A few hours after, Baginda was arrested as well as the two police officers of the Special Branch, Azilah and Sirul.
After a trial considered dubious by many observers, Baginda was acquitted with the accusation of having ordered the murder and released in November 2008. Accused of having perpetrated the murder, Azilah and Sirul appeared in front of the Court last month. If convicted, their sentence is death. The verdict is scheduled for the 9th of April.
Thousands of miles from there, in the Mongolian capital city Ulaan Baataar, Shaaribuu Setev, Altantuya’s father, is trying to control his anger. To him and his family, the acquittal and release of Baginda is symbolic of the unfairness of the Malaysian judicial process: “The Malaysian government is not even answering to the letters from the Mongolian Foreign Affairs Ministry,” he says.
When Shaaribuu came to the Malaysian Parliament to meet Najib Razak, the Deputy Prime minister had to escape through a back door in order to avoid an embarrassing encounter. The Altantuya case has become a key element of the Malaysian political game between Najib Razak (who is expected to become Prime Minister after the United Malay Nation Organisation (UMNO) Congress in March) and the opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim. So far, Najib Razak has navigated around the obstacles, but the murder of the young Mongolian remains a sword suspended over his head.
One of the most obscure aspects of the Altantuya case is the role of the Armaris company. In October 2007, the Malaysian Deputy Defense minister, Zainal Abdidin Zin, acknowledged in front of the Parliament that Armaris had effectively paid 114 million Euros in commission to Perimekar. He maintained that it was not a bribe, but a payment for “support and coordination services.”
Was there corruption as in the case of the Taiwanese frigates in which the French DCNS was also implicated? DCNS, a private company with public financing, has declined our request for a meeting. “Nobody can comment on this case,” was the sober reply of the DCNS Press relations officer in Paris. A document, which could establish a link between Altantuya and the French company is the guarantee letter written by Abdul Razak Baginda so that his mistress could obtain a visa to enter the Schengen zone (of whom France is a member country). The French embassy could not refuse this service to a man decorated with the Legion d’Honneur. But the role of Altantuya in the submarines negotiations is still not clear. Intelligence agencies find her background intriguing and the Russian FSB (ex-KGB) is following closely the case.
In Ulaan Baataar, Mungunshagai, the eldest son of Altantuya, who is 12 years old, is traumatised by the death of his mother. Altanshagai, the youngest, who is five years old and mentally handicapped, has not understood that he will never see again his mother. “He is asking for her all the time and is staying the whole day prostrated on his chair. Every evening, I bring him sweets and I tell him that his mother gave it to me for him”, says Shaaribuu Setev, the grandfather of the two boys. As for Baginda, he settled down in the United Kingdom with his family. He never uttered a word of regret on the deadly fate of the one who shared his life for two years.
Arnaud Dubus (in Kuala Lumpur, Ulaan Baataar and Paris)
Arnaud did extensive research into this story and travelled the world in search of the truth. I met him in Kuala Lumpur soon after my release from ISA detention after he returned from Mongolia.
This is the original cautioned statement that Sirul Azhar Omar made in the interrogation by the police on 19 November 2006 that confirms not only how and why Altantuya was killed but also that they were hired to kill her:
