Anwar back at ACA to give statement - The Star

PUTRAJAYA: Jul 21, 2008

PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim arrived at the Anti-Corruption Agency headquarters here at 9.50am Monday to continue giving his statement on the alleged fabrication of evidence in the “black eye” incident of 1998.

He was accompanied by lawyers R. Sivarasa and Param Cumaraswamy.

In Anwar's report lodged on July 1, he had alleged that Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan and Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail had fabricated evidence in the “black eye” investigation in 1999.

Musa was the investigating officer and Gani led the prosecutor in the case in which Anwar had been beaten up by the IGP then, Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Noor.

Anwar emerged from the ACA office at 1.15pm.

Commenting on Musa's defamation suit against him, Anwar said, "I’ll be happy to meet him in court."

Commenting on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's meeting with "very high level" PAS leaders and if he felt PKR would be sidelined, Anwar said it was not a problem.

"I’ve always been informed of such meetings," he said.
