KUALA LUMPUR, THURS: Jul 17, 2008
Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, detained yesterday and released on police bail today, is required to report every month to the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters, his wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail said today.
The PKR president and Opposition leader in Parliament said Anwar, who was back at their home in Segambut Dalam here, had to report to the police headquarters a month from now and every month after that.
“He came back in pain, fatigue, and was very tired, and we asked a doctor to come and he was given an injection,” she told reporters at the Parliament lobby.
Dr Wan Azizah, who is the Member of Parliament for Permatang Pauh, said Anwar would hold a news conference today at their house on his detention and the treatment he was accorded under police custody.
She said her husband had extended the fullest cooperation to the police in their investigation into a report of sodomy against him.
Anwar left the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters at 9.45 am today in a black four-wheel-drive vehicle via the rear gate.
He waved to reporters as they tried to run after the vehicle.
The de facto PKR leader was detained about 50 metres from his house at 1 pm yesterday and taken to the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters.
He was also taken to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital where he underwent a basic medical examination but declined to allow a DNA sample to be taken.
