Anwar's qazaf bid against Shafee quashed for second time

The Syariah Appeals Court in Selangor has quashed jailed PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim’s qazaf (false accusation of illicit sex) application against lawyer Shafee Abdullah. 
The three-men bench said they agreed with scholarly arguments that zina (illicit sex) also covered liwat (sodomy). 
However the judges said the court was bound by the Selangor syariah crimes enactment, which defines zina only as illicit sex between a man and a woman. 

Thus they ruled that the qazaf application could not be approved. 
This was the same reasoning given when the Syariah High Court in Shah Alam last October quashed Anwar's first qazaf bid against Shafee.
Anwar wanted Shafee to be summoned by the Syariah court over his roadshow or dialogue session held at the Akademi Kepimpinan Kapten Hussein, on Feb 17, last year, after the former opposition leader was convicted of Sodomy II at the Federal Court.
He claimed that Shafee had committed qazaf for spicing up and including extra details of the purported sodomy incident, and challenged Shafee to produce four witnesses.
