If it was Anwar, so what?

By P Ramakrishnan | Aliran’s President

The motive is to implant the impression in the minds of Malaysians that the performer in the sex tape is Anwar – to the extent that a senior police officer from Bukit Aman reportedly has been in Kelantan for several weeks meeting with principals and teachers and informing them it is Anwar who is in the tape.

Leaving aside the question if this is the paramount duty of the police in curbing violence and assuring our personal safety and security, a pertinent question to ask is, “Why is it so important for the police to implicate Anwar in this sex scandal?”

Just for argument’s sake, so what if it was Anwar? What law has he breached; what offence has he committed? Malaysians would want the police to state in clear terms what Anwar is guilty of as far as the sex tape is concerned. What section of the Penal Code is applicable to charge him for that particular offence?

Malaysians don’t want the police to go on a wild goose chase only to be told later on that there was nothing to it! Malaysians don’t want to be taken for a ride by the police. They want the police to state very clearly whether Anwar has a case to answer. They have to state this immediately to convince the Malaysian public that the police are not wasting their time on inconsequential issues. They have a duty to perform better and conduct themselves professionally.

While the police are chasing a ghost in the sex tape, why haven’t they taken any action against those people who are guilty as hell? What is holding them back? We need answers to convince us that there are no double standards!

The terrible trio have confessed to possessing the sex tape; that makes them guilty under the Penal Code. They have confessed to screening this pornographic tape to the public – albeit to a select few; that makes them guilty. What more evidence do the police need before springing into action?

Are the terrible trio any better than the peddlers of pornographic CDs who are rightly hounded by the police? In what ways are the terrible trio different in their conduct in what they did? Malaysians want to know why the police are reluctant to charge them for having committed crimes that are punishable under Malaysian law. What is holding up the police from taking action against them?

The Minister of Home Affairs who is in charge of the police owes the Malaysian public an explanation. We await his response!

    Actually they have not even proven that the act was done in PDRM jurisdication. The hell-bent nature of investigation shows who the police and other govt institution behave – the interest is not the rakyat interest, the interest of their political bosses weigh far and above the rakyat. How BN can hope to govern when the government serves their interest in excessive portion instead of the people’s interest. It does not even matter what they want to do because the whole system is dysfunctional, unprofessional and don’t work..

    The Trio are not charged because they have been promised immunity from prosecution by their political masters.

    If the Trio were PR members, they would have been ISA-ed by now!

    Hey, jibby jib went one step further. He said that if the tape was genuine (already confirmed by the police, a fact which the public is not interested) then some sins must have been committed.

    So dont ask the police. Ask jib instead. What are those sins? Never mind who the actor was. What sins, huh? Jib?

    Assuming it is Annuar so what is the big deal?What about our porno actor CSL? Why isn’t the police sitting on it after such a long time? Is it that HARD to trace the lady in the picture?I WONDER why our Royal Malaysian Police is so keen in this tape implicating Annuar.Haven’t these brookes got better things to do?Why is the delay in charging the Datuk T? I am utterly disgusted with our police impartiality at just application of our law.It is a National SHAME.

    What Anwar did with his personal life is not our concern, important thing is we need a Malaysian Malaysia leader, government and not the present King of racism government.
    Vote for PKR.

    Police suddenly so active on sex matter…which Malaysians at large are not bothered….even if it is Anwar.
    Concerning murders….especially Atlantuya..TBK..Kugan..not one Police Chief is interested to investigate for months and months.
    What kind of Police Force are we having?
    And one top officer said Police Force reputation is spolit by Internet users.
    Did Internet users kill the three mentioned?

    Are you sure 11 out of 10 people do not believe the Terrible Trio of Tricksters? There are lots of idiots in Malaysia who would believe the TTT.
