The fourth day of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s appeal in the Federal Court against a sodomy conviction began with the prosecution refuting the Opposition leader’s statement from the dock.

Lead prosecutor Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah kicked off proceedings on Friday by singling out the statement Anwar made from the dock during the trial in the High Court.

Shafee told the Federal Court that Anwar attacked everyone from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to the investigating officer in his statement. He says the PKR leader also hit out at the trial judge, an act which should amount to contempt of court.

The government is still in the midst of studying the structure of a new fuel subsidy rationalisation scheme, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

“It is a bit premature (to disclose) as it is still at ‘a request for proposal’ stage. As for now, the present system will continue. We will decide when we have the best proposal with a full package,” he told Malaysian journalists on Wednesday.

Najib was on a three-day working visit to Dubai in conjunction with the 10th World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) which ended yesterday.

The DNA profile of a person identified as ‘Male Y’ found in the rectum of Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan did not belong to Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, the Federal Court heard yesterday.

Submitting before a five-man bench led by Chief Justice of Malaysia Tun Arifin Zakaria, lawyer Sangeet Kaur Deo said there was no evidence at all to link ‘Male Y’ to Anwar.

She explained that none of the police officers who were on duty at the lock-up saw Anwar use the three items – a toothbrush, Good Morning towel and mineral water bottle – which were given to him by the police when he was detained overnight from July 16 to July 17 in 2008.

Polis menembak mati dua lelaki, yang dipercayai anggota pemberontak tentera Sulu dan menjadi antara penggerak utama merekrut anggota baharu, di kawasan rumah kedai, Penampang Baru, Sabah, hari ini.

Menurut sumber polis, pihaknya telah membuat intipan beberapa minggu lalu mengenai aktiviti kedua-dua pemberontak terbabit dan mendapati mereka cuba merekrut anggota baharu dan menyebarkan ideologi kesultanan Sulu di seluruh Sabah serta mengajar elemen keganasan.

Jabatan Peguam Negara (JPN) telah pada 27 Oktober 2014 mengeluarkan suatu kenyataan berkenaan dengan keputusan Jabatan tersebut untuk tidak mengambil tindakan selanjutnya terhadap Dato’ Ibrahim Ali, Presiden Perkasa.

Menurut kenyataan tersebut, keputusan dibuat kerana, antara lain, kenyataan Dato’ Ibrahim Ali yang menyeru orang ramai untuk membakar salinan “Al-Kitab” tidak terjatuh di bawah lingkungan definisi kecenderungan menghasut di bawah Akta Hasutan 1948.
