BN media turns vicious on Wan Azizah after sex tape boomerangs
It looks the Umno elite has switched their attention to Wan Azizah and the Royal Commission of Inquiry demanded by the trio of dubious personalities calling themselves Datuk T over a sex video tape that they claim shows a man looking like Anwar having sex with a prostitute.
The BN media has been instructed to go on all-out attack to embarrass the PKR president speculating that she had asked to see the sex tape.
But Wan Azizah showed her famous poise and turned the tables on her enemies instead.
“I have no desire to watch the video. I know it’s a fake, so why should I?” Wan Azizah told reporters on Thursday.
She also denied ever indicating a wish to watch the 21-minute video which cropped up suddenly on Monday.
Anwar has already lodged a police report, calling the video a “scurrilous attack” and accusing Prime Minister Najib Razak and his cousin Hishammuddin Hussein of leading the conspiracy to bring him down with yet another sex scandal.
This is not the first time the Umno elite has tried to tar Anwar with both male and female partners.
In 1998, former premier Mahathir Mohamad prosecuted Anwar for sodomy. At the same time, worried in case no one would believe it of Anwar, Mahathir also recounted to the mainstream media how people close to Anwar had told him about Anwar’s ‘voracious’ sexual appetite for women.
In his latest book, Mahathir again told of how a former Anwar aide had arranged to take 4 girls to a house in Kenny Hills for the purpose of having sex with Anwar.
In 2008, fresh sodomy charges were pressed against a politically resurgent Anwar. He has accused Najib of fabricating the charges and revealed that the complainant had met Najib two days before lodging the police complaint that led to his current prosecution.
“From men to women, all sorts of ways and means are being used to tarnish Anwar. But as the saying goes, give them enough rope and they will hang themselves. I think the few who had doubts about Anwar now have serious doubts about Najib and the BN government,” PKR vice president tian Chua told Malaysia Chronicle.
PKR leaders also rubbished the call by former Malacca chief minister Rahim Thamny Chik, businessman Shazryl Eskay and Perkasa treasurer Shuib Lazim to hold a Royal Commission of Inquiry on the video tape.
"Nonsense. Why should there be an RCI on Anwar? Just report the tape to the police who should arrest and charge the trio for showing pornographic material and criminal intimidation," PKR communications director Nik Nazmi toldMalaysia Chronicle.
"If the three men are sincere about being Muslims as they claim, they should asked to be tried in the Syariah courts."
Meanwhile, calls are growing for a Royal Commission of Inquiry to establish who was behind the Datuk T trio, were government agencies and the mainstream media involved in the making and screening of the tape, and what was the purpose and why the attack on Anwar? - Malaysia Chronicle
