Peeved Anwar will not go to police HQ
Jul 14, 08 11:17am

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim tidak akan hadir di ibu pejabat polis kontinjen (IPK) Kuala Lumpur untuk disoal siasat bagi dakwaan kes liwat seperti yang beliau janjikan Sabtu lalu.

Dalam satu kenyataan hari ini, peguamnya Sankara Nair berkata keputusan terbaru penasihat PKR itu diambil kerana polis “mengganggu” kakitangan dan ahli keluarganya semalam walaupun Anwar bersedia hadir secara sukarela.

“Gangguan” polis itu – setakat ini belum jelas jenis gangguan yang didakwa Anwar – sewaktu pihak berwajib cuba menyerahkan arahan hadir memberi keterangan bawah Seksyen 111 Kanun Acara Jenayah.

“Tindakan (polis) ini sama sekali tidak diperlukan memandangkan kami telah menyatakan dalam persetujuan awal bahawa anak guam kami akan hadir di IPK Kuala Lumpur jam 2 petang hari ini,” kata Sankara, dalam satu kenyataan ringkas pagi ini.

“Anak guam kami membantah tindakan tidak wajar polis itu dan telah mengirim surat menyatakan bantahan itu kepada polis semalam jam 5 petang.”

KL blocked, democracy locked down

In anticipation of the vote of no-confidence scheduled to be up on Monday morning, the police have set up road blocks all around Kuala Lumpur. There appears to be an order to lock-down the Parliament on Monday morning from 7 am onwards.

Question is: Are the police doing this to protect public security or to deter the curious and interested public from turning up in Parliament tomorrow. There is no rally tomorrow at Parliament scheduled. But there is an emergency motion on the state of the country especially since the price hike of fuel and other basic essentials.

Lest we forget, Parliament is not a security-zone. This is the second time the police have attempted to stop public access to the very halls which decide on laws which govern our lives, where debates pertaining to our lives and livelihood occur. We have every right to go in, witness the debates just as with public access into any other public buildings.

So in an attempt to shield all the Prime Minister’s men/women tomorrow morning, the traffic jam has sprawled as far as Klang where I was this morning. This doesn’t inspire any further confidence in Abdullah Badawi.
