    This is new! from Star news online, dated yesterday... "Parti Keadilan Rakyat de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was left fighting for his political credibility, calling a press conference at 1.20am today to deny allegations that he sodomised his aide.

    He described the allegations made by his aide in a police report lodged yesterday as a “total fabrication”.

    The statement, which was also faxed to media offices, said: “The police report lodged against me today is a complete fabrication. I believe we are witnessing a repeat of the methods used against me in 1998 when false allegations were made under duress.”

    Asked why Anwar was not at the press conference, Sivarasa said Anwar was very busy attending to “too many telephone calls.”

    Earlier, a man claiming to be an aide of Anwar lodged a police report alleging sodomy by the PKR leader.

    It is learnt that the man, in his 20s, lodged the report at a police beat base here at 5.45pm.

    He is being treated at a hospital in Kuala Lumpur.

    Sources said the man alleged that he was sexually assaulted last Thursday inside a luxury apartment in the city.

    He also alleged that it was not the first time that Anwar had sexually assaulted him.

    Sivarasa said the aide started working for PKR three months ago to help out in the general election.

    City CID chief Senior Asst Comm II Ku Chin Wah confirmed that a report had been lodged but declined to give details.

    Sources said police were waiting for the medical report from the hospital before proceeding with investigations.

    They also said Anwar was expected to be called up by the police to have his statement recorded". malaysia, "sodomy law" is commonly restricted to rape cases, BUT consensual homosexual acts even tho is illegal and punishable by law is very rarely practised the most people get is a fine and rehab or if u r really unlucky a few days jail time.i know this from experience but thats another story!

    As a gay malaysian i am really distraught over this, its comonly known by the gay comunity here that he is in fact gay and had kept men over the years while being married with kids and proclaimed himself as a devoted muslim. he is such a hypocrite!! im sad for the wife and family.

    in my opinion if he wants to become the leader of our country he has to be true to himself and come out! OR turn straight( yeah right!) OR better still, get a divorce, forget about politics, have a fabulous gay life, be in the closet if need be and have as many kept boys as u like and answer to one!

    i will keep u guys posted with the latest update if its a matter of interest! sorry if my english is not great hehehe

    GOD! i hope i wont get death threats from his supporters!

    Well, the Republican party doesn't oppress us like that do they?
    HRC did the same thing with Mark Foley though.
