PAS vice-president Nik Amar Nik Abdullah appears to have a foggy memory over the statutory declarations (SD) related to the Sodomy II trial, says PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli.
Nik Amar had said recently that Rafizi's SD alleging that SRC International Sdn Bhd funds were channelled to former PAS deputy president Nasrudin Mat Isa could not be taken seriously.
If Rafizi's SD was accepted, Nik Amar said, then the public must accept the SDs of Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan and former Bank Negara assistant governor Abdul Murad Khalid's as well.
To this, Rafizi clarified that Saiful's role in Sodomy II did not involve him making an SD, but his complaint was made in a police report.
"It was not through a SD because the penalty for making a false SD is severe," Rafizi said in a statement today.
Why doctor's SD is true
He said the famous SD related to Sodomy II was the one made by Dr Mohamad Osman Abdul Hamid of Hospital Pusrawi, who examined Saiful.
Mohamad Osman's medical report concluded that the "anus was normal, no bleeding, there were no signs of piles and no abscess and no pus, no injury, no tear and no discharge. Anus was clean and dry and looked normal. No abnormalities seen."
The statutory declaration recounted Mohamad Osman's experience with examining Saiful and the police investigations that followed.
According to Rafizi, Mohamad Osman's medical report and SD were crucial evidence that were ignored by the courts in convicting Anwar Ibrahim for sodomising Saiful.
"The police never took action against Mohamad Osman either, which showed that his SD is true," Rafizi added.- Mkini
