Video of Anwar Ibrahim in lock up?
According to the Malaysian Insider, the police are considering releasing a CCTV footage of DSAI when he was detained in a lock-up at the KL police headquarters. The move is said to be an effort by the police to refute charges by Anwar that he was treated badly while in detention. He had reportedly claimed that he had to sleep on the cement floor without a blanket. Yesterday, when Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar met foreign diplomats, he revealed to the envoys the existence of such a CCTV footage but did not say if it would be released. Malaysians would certainly want to see if such a footage exist, as reported by Malaysian Insider, and if yes, it could shed some light to the allegations. Anwar must also be allowed to respond to the CCTV footage, once released.
