Turkey envoy summoned

Updates: DSAI files suit against Saiful for allegedly lodging false report


Turkish Ambassador Barlas Ozener has been summoned to Wisma Putra in Putrajaya. The order was given by Foreign Minister Rais Yatim following the envoy's invitation to DSAI to stay at the embassy compound. Rais is saying Anwar did not qualify for any sort of international or diplomatic protection. In short, Turkey is now accused of meddling in domestic politics. A major diplomatic row is in the offing if the problem is not resolved as Anwar's supporters have said he would be holed up at the embassy indefinitely. His supporters have turned up outside the embassy gates to show support. For the police, they now have to question Anwar following the sodomy allegations by Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan. He claimed Anwar sodomised him at an apartment in Damansara Heights. That would mean the police need to get Anwar's side of the story and possibly carry out a DNA test. Family members, friends and associates of both sides would be interviewed as part of the investigating process. The pressure would be on the cops now - they need to do the job but they can't just walk into the embassy, which has diplomatic immunity. There's also the security and political considerations because the perception is that it's a political set-up.

yes the police needs to interview anwar as part of their investigation and anwar should co-operate with them in all fairness.

However, if u talk about having to take DNA tests,medical tests etc, etc, i say go to hell. The police must have all his details in their file when anwar was arrested 10 years ago on the same charge. Pls don't tell me that our police have lost his file-lah!!!!!

Taking refuge at Turkish embassy is sign of a desperate man. Looks like he may be seeking asylum to a foreign country soon and I am sure the government will without a doubt say "YES". Read my blog "Man, oh man!"

Can an old deer rape a tiger? Can a small old rabbit rape a big mighty buffalo? Can a small old (62year old) man with bad back rape a strong young man one and half time the size of the old man? Com'on, the desperados are so stupid to think they can dupe the public. Or maybe they don't really care if we believe of not. After all, we will have a kangaroo police investigation, followed by a kangaroo korek-korek-korek court that will ensure he is judged guilty. Malaysia apa pun boleh.
Shame on the UMNO gomen. I hope the Turkey govt can squeal a bit of info on that yacht purchase to embarass somebody.

I hope common sense will prevail. This sandiwara is not helpful.

Due to inflation, the ticket price for this show has increased 41%.

On the DNA, the police should have a copy of NSAI's DNA still. I like watching CSI but I guess the local force may not be up to the task.

Just listen to all the things pouting out of the mouths of the cabinet ministers. They have already declared Anwar guilty, and declared Saiful innocent. They are already acting like jury and judge. Can you blme Anwar for faring for his lives? Each time a minister open his big mouth, he is confirming Anwar's fear that there is a conspiracy against him. The ministers are already making a lot of contradictory statement, pointing to a badly thought-out plot, with badly thought-out lies to cover up. No investigations need to be done. They have pronounce Anwar guilty. So, PDRM, you may as well use your time and resources to prevent house break-in, ATM robbers, etc. No need to waste time investigating Anwar. He is already guilty.

MeiYen, you are a shameless blogger with no soul. Anybody reading your blog will know you are on the payroll of UMNO. But since you cannot generate a decent traffic to your bad blog site, you have been shamelessly commenting rubbish in Chun Wai's blog, and shamelessly keep asking people to visit your blog. Just went to your blog once, and decided it is not worth a second visit.

Dato Wong, the response time at the StarOnline website is already crawling, probably due to high traffic these few days for the hot news. How about upgrading the Star computer system? BTW Star has improved a lot post-election with more non-partisan news. Hope you can keep it up. And it looks like the MCA bosses are taking the hint from the public these days, and I suppose they will not be giving you crap for printing news neutrally and objectively.

Wether Anwar is guilty or not,he has all the rights to get refuge from whoever he wants.

Having been detained 10yrs ago he will know 1st hand as to what he will face if the police takes him away.

Even if he had sodomised someone,(which i dont believe this time around), how big is this offence compared to Mahathir's racially inflammatory speech in JB recently which could have sparked unrest in the country?That would have been a national catastrophe.What action did the police take against Mahathir the Maharacist?Not even a word of caution.

We Malaysians had enough of this double standard.For one I dont mind if my PM is a sodomite as long as he does the job excellently as the chief executive of the country and most importantly treat all Malaysians in a fair and just manner.Which is more threatening to a nation,a snake,a sodomite or a racist?It's any body's guess.
