Saiful Swears Anwar Sodomised Him

Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan appeared in public today to swear on the Quran and denied he had consented to the alleged anal intercourse with Anwar Ibrahim. He has swore on the Quran at the Federal Territory Mosque in Jalan Duta here today that the sodomy had indeed taken place.

Saiful Azlan ZamriHe performed the swearing before an imam at 6.15pm. The swearing process ended about 15 minutes later.

He was accompanied by his father and police personnel. The swearing ceremony was witnessed by some 30 people, including representatives of the media and members of his family.

Mohd Saiful, Anwar’s former aide, prior to today, had pledged that he would swear on the Quran about the alleged misdeed by Anwar.

At a press conference held 45 minutes after the swearing took place, Mohd Saiful challenged Anwar to do the same to proclaim his (Anwar’s) innocence.

He said taking this path (swearing on the Quran) was the best way for him to get justice here and the hereafter and also to regain his personal dignity.

When performing the swearing at the mosque, Saiful, who wore a light brown baju Melayu(traditional men’s Malay attire), faced the direction of Mecca and held the Quran in his right hand and the swearing text in his left.

He challenged Anwar to also swear on the Quran, and dared him to deny the allegation in Allah’s name inside a mosque.

“It is time to honour my responsibility as a Muslim and to stand up for the truth. I deeply understand that if I am lying, I will be cursed by Allah, and woe will befall me, my family and for generations to come,” said Saiful, 23, in his first ever meeting with the press at the Dynasty Hotel here.

The lanky young man, wearing a light chocolate baju melayu and black pants, was calm throughout the 15 minutes press conference on Friday. He had first read from a prepared text and answered some questions from reporters before leaving the meeting room.

He had came straight to the press conference at 7.12pm after performing the swearing at the Federal Territory mosque. Saiful was accompanied by father Azlan Mohd Lazim and lawyer Zamri Idrus.

Saiful maintained he had performed the swearing voluntarily and even dared invoke Allah’s name because he was telling the truth.

“The swearing was done in accordance with Islamic rules and after I sought advice from religious elders on how to do it correctly. This is the best way for me to obtain justice on earth and on judgment day. I seek solace from Allah and for the return of my dignity.

“I do not wish to twist and turn the matter as Anwar did,” he said.

Reporters then bombarded Saiful with questions. He was asked why he only came forward to swear one day before the nomination for the Permatang Pauh by-election where Anwar is standing as a candidate for PKR.

Saiful answered he needed time to collect his strength because the swearing was something sacred and the consequences severe.

“It has nothing to with politics. It is between Anwar and me,” he said.

Other questions posed to Saiful included where he was all this while to which he replied:

“I kept quiet because I needed time to gather my strength because I had been accused of all kinds of malicious remarks, especially by Anwar.”

Asked why he chose Friday to perform the swearing, Saiful said, “I had long wanted to do so. However, it needed mental and spiritual strength because this is not an easy thing because the consequence is incurring the wrath of God.

“Thankfully, Allah gave me strength for me to perform it today and to face the press.”

The opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim claims that his accuser’s swearing on the Quran is nothing more than a ‘dirty trick’ by a desperate Umno. It’s only a political gimmick.

On Aug 7, Anwar was charged in the Sessions Court with performing sex against the order of nature on Mohd Saiful on June 26 at unit 11-5-1 Desa Damansara Condominium, No 99, Jalan Setiakasih Bukit Damansara here.

Anwar pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The charge was under Section 377B of the Penal Code, which carries a jail sentence of up to 20 years and whipping, if convicted.
