Setelah didapati bersalah oleh Mahkamah Rayuan atas kes Liwat 2, Anwar Ibrahim kini berhadapan dengan saman RM50 juta oleh bekas pembantu peribadi beliau, Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
Beliau dijangka mampu membayarnya berdasarkan jumlah harta dan sumber kewangan beliau yang kukuh sebagaimana yang didedahkan oleh Wikileaks sekiranya beliau kalah saman tersebut.
Walaubagaimana pun, beliau perlu berusaha keras untuk menempatkan isteri beliau sebagai Menteri Besar Selangor memandangkan ia satu-satunya cara mudah untuk memperolehi dana awam melalui Menteri Besar Incorporated (MBI) dan keuntungan atas angin penstrukturan semula air Selangor dengan kerajaan Pusat.
Selain dari itu, para penganalisis politik berpendapat, hayat politik Anwar Ibrahim bakal berkubur di dalam penjara.
Semoga beliau tidak dikuburkan di dalam penjara, aameen. – zamzuri
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 13 — PKR’s Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is now facing a RM50 million civil suit from his former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan for alleged sodomy and for purportedly harming the latter’s reputation.
In the suit filed on June 25, Saiful sought damages for his alleged losses and physical pain and suffering since the alleged 2008 sodomy incident, among other things.
In his statement of claim, Saiful traced the events back to his June 28, 2008 police report against his then-employer Anwar, in which he accused the PKR de facto chief of sodomising him without his consent two days earlier.
Saiful maintained that his credibility as a witness was not disputed by both the High Court which acquitted Anwar in 2012, or the Court of Appeal, which subsequently reversed the acquittal and sentenced the opposition leader to five years’ jail on March 7 this year.
Insisting that he had told the truth about the alleged sodomy, Saiful claimed that Anwar had constantly told the media that the former aide had allegedly defamed him by providing false testimony through the police report.
Saiful added that Anwar had also filed for qazaf or false accusation against him in the Shariah Court and gave the impression that he was untrustworthy and had lied.
Now aged 28, Saiful said all these allegations had caused him to be greatly humiliated and be regarded lowly in society.
Saiful also claimed that he had faced difficulties in adapting to society and getting clients since he started working as an insurance agent in 2011.
Saiful claimed Anwar had misused his position as an employer to commit the alleged act of sodomy.
Anwar should have known that such an act was illegal and should pay damages for allegedly sodomising him, Saiful claimed.
Besides claiming RM50 million in damages, Saiful is also seeking general damages, special damages, exemplary damages and an annual interest rate of 8 per cent until full settlement of any damages awarded.
Saiful’s lawsuit was brought up for case management today before High Court Deputy Registrar Norfauzani Mohd Nordin in chambers, with lawyers Shahid Adli and Zamri Idrus representing Anwar and Mohd Saiful respectively.
The court ordered Anwar to file his defence by September 3 and set October 8 for the next case management.
Anwar is currently appealing against the Court of Appeal’s decision to overturn the sodomy acquittal, with case management of his appeal at the Federal Court set for tomorrow. – source
