Dear Mr Prime Minister,
Than you for your assurance that there is no political conspiracy against Anwar Ibrahim. The people feel assured and hope this is not another lead to make the people satisfied while your subordinates do the damage.
This statement is, I believe a bit delayed, as the actual incident took place three days ago.
There was blunder after blunder, the Police and even your Home Minister. It was, forgive my expression, a fiasco beyond compare, even your son in law, getting involved on DNA, when the Police report had not been given to the accused person.
We look up to you to run the Government well, but if you are forced to be in the background, while others take prominence, the whole idea of you leading the country is a farce. In this age of quick action, immediate response, cannot be tempered with procrastination, which Sir, you are doing it every time.
Delayed action, becomes an afterthought, and whatever good you may mean is countermanded by your Ministers and the Civil Service,
Is it okay Sir, if I suggest, a daily statement from you, or from your press secretary which now appears extinct, to assure your people you are aware of important things that happen in the country, rather than an incompetent down line official making a stupid statement. Whatever these underlings do, your name is dragged in as the Prime Minister. Even in this case, if you had taken the lead, people like the CID chief, or for that matter your bumbling Home Minister can be put in place.
Please consider. Your PR is lacking.
There is no conspiracy against Anwar, says PM
By V.P. SUJATA
PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has stressed that there is no political conspiracy against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and has given his assurance for the safety of the PKR adviser.
The Prime Minister said no one should believe that there was a conspiracy or any plans by the Government to victimise the Opposition leader.
He said that he could not stop international perception that there was such a conspiracy as the media had already chosen to believe it.
“They say his sodomy allegation is something like that that had happened before. If one wants to believe, how can we control such things?”
“Actually what they are accusing us of is not right at all,” he told reporters here Friday. . Abdullah said he had already given assurance that the investigation on the sodomy allegation on Anwar would be conducted professionally.
He said he had met both Anwar’s wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and PKR vice-president Azmin Ali and assured them of Anwar’s safety.
“I can give the assurance. Even his wife met me for a guarantee that a repeat of the earlier “black eye incident” would not happen.
” YB Azmin asked for a assurance and I said he (Anwar) will be safe and that we will investigate according to the provisions of the law,” he said.
The Prime Minister urged Anwar to allow the authorities to take samples for a DNA test if he insisted that he was innocent.
“The DNA sample the authorities have is too old, so they need a new sample, what is wrong in giving?
“If he insists that he is not involved, (in sodomy as alleged) she should give the sample now and we will see the results as proof,” he said, adding that the police want to solve his case fast but were unable to do so due to the difficulties in getting the DNA sample.
“If we wanted to complete the case fast, it could have been done Thursday but (it is) not finished yet,” he said.
