Datuk Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy charge is to be heard by the court beginning 1st July, 2009.

Another 10 days more for Anwar Ibrahim to meet Saiful The Pondan, in person, in court, after Saiful The Pondan had lodged a police report last year on June 28, claiming that two days before the police report, Anwar, had sodomised him on various occasions, the last being at a condominium unit in Damansara. Saiful The pondan also claimed that he could not pass motion for a number of days after being sodomised.

Remember, back in 1998, Anwar Ibrahim was also first charged for sodomy for sodomising in 1994, Azizan Abu Bakar the driver of Kak Wan Azizah. For this, Anwar was sentenced to 15 years in prison for sodomy and for abusing his authority to cover up the deed.  However the  court overturned the sodomy conviction and freed him in 2004, after Mahathir had retired.

So what will happen to Anwar when he goes for trial this July 1st? Most likely, he may be denied bail and then sent to prison under remand.  After that, there will be a quick conviction and found guilty and jailed for 20 years and whipped under section 377B of the Penal Code. This is a very possible scenario. If this is going to be the case, Anwar may die in prison after this.

So, can we trust our judges to be impartial and fair? I have my doubts like many other Malaysians.

I totally agree with many that our system has fallen pray to Umno power play and money.  Consequently, many individuals and even lawyers wonder if they are ever going to get a fair trial here.  Such a question should never enter someone’s mind when going to court. But its not the case here, sad to say. All judges should be fair and impartial, and when we start questioning whether our judges will be fair and impartial, democracy ceases to exist as we know it.

The only alternative for Anwar in this scenario is to go into exile from Malaysia. Maybe Anwar should look into this option. Anwar should know that even Daw Aung San Suu Kyi should have gone into exile long time ago in order to be more effective for Burma. By staying put in Burma, Aung San Suu Kyi was not able to meet and talk to the international community and hence could not urge more international pressure to be put on Burma like what Khomeini or Dalai Lama did.

What are you waiting for Datuk? This is a sincere request from a fellow Penangite. Don’t wait lah! Malaysians will be very depress if you go in for the next 20 years and there will not be any more SEMANGAT to fight. We want you outside so that the fire will be burning till there is a real regime change.

    Sorry, I don’t agree Anwar should go into exile. This would make the BN goons jump with joy! It would be far better than sustaining the damage from convicting him in a sham trial and making him a martyr.

    In exile, Anwar would lose all his influence and power. In jail, he can bring down the govt. Yes, I agree, going to jail is hard but it will only be for a few years until BN is kicked out at the next G.E.

    This is a moving piece of thought from you. I too feel the same. Malaysia is in such a mess because the power that be has lost its rationale whatsoever in safeguarding the interests of its people. They have blatantly use almost all the government’s machineries to bring down their political opponents. I have some rest during Tun AAB ‘s tenure but that didn’t last long.

    As recalled, I was there on the street in ’98 reformasi demontrations and was chased after the SBs near Lebuh Ampang. As my age has caught up with me, my only strength is now surfing the alternative news and give some inputs and ideas to shun this current regime.
