Sudden Ultimatum

ACA slaps ultimatum on Anwar to reveal video source

PETALING JAYA (Oct 22, 2007): Parti Keadilan Rakyat advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has until Thursday to provide the Anti-Corruption Agency with the complete 14-minute video recording of a telephone conversation between a senior lawyer and a “Datuk” – or face a fine of RM10,000, two years jail, or both.

Three ACA officers, led by Special Tasks Branch head and Deputy Commissioner Sazali Salbi, served Anwar with the order under Section 22(1)(b) of the Anti-Corruption Act 1997 during a three-hour-long session at Anwar’s office.

The former deputy premier told reporters he volunteered the original copy – in a thumbdrive – even before he was served with the notice.

“However, after verifying my statement, and some phone calls, the officers received instructions to issue an order compelling me to submit the original complete recording – including the six-minute segment that has yet to be viewed by the public on or before Thursday,” he said.

First Sivarasa Rasiah and Sim, now the ACA wants to threaten Anwar too eh? Four day deadline this time, probably because they are rushing for their October 29th deadline. I doubt they would carry out their threat, they have yet to take action against Sivarasa and Sim…hmm maybe the ACA will just wait until the general elections then suddenly arrest all three men. At least that is all that happened that day, I was expecting the worse case scenario to be ACA just arresting people on the spot.

All this talk about viewing the original copy is a bit pointless really, its digital! Something for me to write about in a future post I guess.

Nothing good seems to be happening to anyone who watched the original video…hmm this sounds familiar 😉
