Anwar’s driver claims sabotage plot with car

By Regina Lee | May 10, 11

Opposition leader and PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim’s driver has claimed a plot to sabotage the former’s car.

Alleging that the car frequently used by Anwar has been tampered with, driver Abdullah Sani Said, 51, said that there could be a more sinister motive against Anwar.

Anwar’s driver of 28 years, Abdullah Sani said he was driving the former’s wife and party president Wan Azizah, together with the Selangor Menteri Besar’s political secretary Faekah Husin, from a party function in Chemor, Perak in the middle of the night on April 19 when something went awry with the car.

Traveling in a Mercedes Benz S350, they were on the North-South highway when a lorry overtaking them forced him to jam his brakes.

However, the car shook suddenly followed by an explosion sound coming from the back.

He said he barely managed to steer the car to the side of the highway despite the very stiff rear tyre on the right.

Lodging a police report at the Tropicana police station, a short walk from the PKR headquarters in Petaling Jaya, Abdullah Sani said he found broken pieces of the brake disc all over the highway, rendering the car completely immobile by then.

Plot to harm Anwar

However, according to his police report, the bigger shock came back when his regular mechanic told him that a caliper guide bolt pin to support the disc brake had been removed.

“I was told that it is impossible for the bolt to come off without someone removing it,” Abdullah Sani said in his report.

“The car was in good condition when we started driving it and since it is also impossible for the bolt to come off without someone removing it, I believe that someone did this deliberately to hurt or kill Anwar Ibrahim.

“Based on what the mechanic told me, there are also elements of sabotage, considering that the vehicle is regularly used by Anwar,” he said.

Attaching a testimony by the mechanic with his police report, Abdullah Sani said: “I am worried for my safety, as well as that of Anwar’s family, if this were to happen again.”

    Oh my gosh!!!

    How LOW & CHEAP can Pakatan Rakyat go to even come up with such WILD ACCUSATION??? So, what’s next??? Sabotage via food poisoning???

    Come on’…’s TOTALLY FINE to accuse but at least please do it with SUBSTANCE & STYLE. Blaming the car, blaming the lorry, blaming the brakes, blaming the road & blaming the sky is certainly NOT the way to win the ‘voters’ support. It will only make Pakatan Rakyat a stock to laugh at.

    What’s needed to be done by Pakatan Rakyat is working towards ‘political reform’ & NOT singing the once famous ‘MILLI VANILLI’ song named “Blame it on the rain”, ok???

    Perhaps the lorry in front of Anwar’s Mercedez Benz knew Anwar was inside the car & the lorry driver also knew Anwar likes it from the BACK. Thus, the lorry driver wished to fulfill Anwar’s dream by giving it to Anwar using his ‘Lorry’s Backside’. Nah!!! just kidding though.

    Buck up Pakatan Rakyat!!! Stop playing SILLY games & get down to business (proper business, I mean). Thanks!

    ‘…an explosion sound coming from the back.’

    In Anwar’s case, its always the back. (Sigh!)

    Anwar should get himself much more sophisticated super car like James Bond’s ones or monsterball’s freedom fighter jet.In this way,it will dampen their next attempt.They will’ll have boh-liau ideas and surrendered to plot further more.

    In the land of C4, Altantunya, Rosi and Jiiby and Baginda Lari where self strangulation and jumping off buildings after the self strangulation is possible……anything is possible…

    It is not only attempts on Anwar’s life that is possible, LKS, LGE and Karpal cannot let their guards down either…..these are pretty desperate times for Bee END.
