It is not a matter of fabricating the evidence, which then can easily BE CHALLENGED in court and be asked for RE-EXAMINATION AND RE-TESTING at a neutral lab under the supervision of neutral experts. It is not a matter of planting an evidence either, as the whole process from the taking of a sample up to the production of a DNA PROFILE, which took as little as 5 hours (depending), can be monitored and even executed by neutral parties or experts. What more when Anwar Ibrahim can even have his own representatives to guard or monitor the whole profiling thing to be sure that none of the given samples be taken away for other use. So what is the excuse NOT TO then?
The issue is more than what meets the eye.
This is what reported of Anwar Ibrahim saying in a press conference on July 1, 2008:
He called on the police not to spring a surprise arrest, adding his lawyers had written three letters to the Inspector General of Police and the Attorney-General indicating his willingness to co-operate in the investigation.
“They did not reply until today. TAKE MY DNA, TAKE MY HAIR ... my hair is everywhere, except this part,” said Anwar as he smiled and patted the middle part of his scalp.
And this is what Anwar Ibrahim said next after he was released prior to him not giving his DNA for investigations.
“I have my reasons, based on the advice of my lawyers and local and foreign DNA experts. My DNA sample is already with the police. Secondly, the accuser is in police custody. Anything can happen. Why the need for DNA from me?
This is then asked of his lawyer R. Sivarasa regarding foreign and neutral DNA expert’s assistance to help Anwar Ibrahim establishing the truth in which R. Sivarasa was reported saying:
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim WILL NOT AGREE to the idea of a FOREIGN FORENSIC EXPERT OF HIS CHOICE to draw a DNA sample from him, said lawyer R. Sivarasa.
“They (the police) fail to understand Anwar’s concern as explained this afternoon. It does not address the possible fabrication of DNA (test results) starting with Saiful (Bukhari Azlan) himself,”
To a question whether Anwar and his lawyers would consider allowing the international expert to carry out the DNA test, he said they could “start to look at that” as the expert might be able to advise them.
However, he said this would not make a difference if there was a possibility that the samples would be tampered with.
He said they would RESIST ANY LEGAL ACTION for Anwar to provide a DNA sample because the law does not provide for it.
Then came the last straw set by Anwar Ibrahim in order for him to give his sample for DNA testing. As reported:
At his press conference earlier, Anwar had said that if there was “compelling evidence one, two, three and four which needs an international expert,” then he would be willing to submit to DNA testing.
Meaning, UNLESS the police has one, two, three, four or more evidence, which then shall be attended and verified only by international foreign experts, he won’t be submitting any samples for DNA testing even for the CAUSE TO ESTABLISH HIS INNOCENCE.
Anwar Ibrahim said YES then NO then YES then NO then YES with conditions but then a NO UNLESS. So how can we expect to believe Anwar Ibrahim anymore??
He does not trust the police, the lab and the system. He trusts only advice given by foreign experts. The authority then suggested him to have his experts to monitor the sampling process. He bombarded the idea suggesting it as not enough a courtesy. The authority then suggested him to have his choice of foreign DNA experts to co-work with the whole DNA profiling process. He mocked the idea saying it isn’t good enough as evidence can still be fabricated. So what on earth is the way befits him that he wants? Why and what with all those excuses and reasons and escapes?? Why is he not eagerly wanting and seeking the truth and get this whole sodomy thing done once and for all? It only takes 5 hours to get a DNA profile done? What so frustrating about that? 5 hours under the eyes, microscope and hands of his own trusted and chosen DNA technicians and experts who will make sure that none of the given samples be taken away for other use. So what the issue does fabrication of evidence is and now has then? None at all! So why keep on giving excuses after excuses? Shocking, surprising, confusing yet so amusing.
DNA IS NOT THE PROBLEM so too the police and the foreign experts. THE PROBLEM IS ANWAR IBRAHIM.As ODD AND TWISTED as the DNA may looks like, ANWAR IBRAHIM RINGING EXCUSES ARE FAR TOO TWISTED to believe that such molecules still very much alive and exist in a man’s body.
