Karpal Singh has warned Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his ministers not to volunteer unsolicited comments that may compromise police investigations into PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim’s alleged sodomy offence.
The DAP chairperson said in a statement today that he was shocked by Pak Lah's challenge to Anwar to prove his innocence in this controversial allegation by giving his DNA sample.

“It is elementary that under our system of law, it is not the PM who considers the result of an investigation but the police who are required to put up investigation papers to the Attorney-General.
“It is wrong for the PM to publicly challenge Anwar to disprove the allegation of sodomy against him.
“The PM should hold his piece and not publicly direct and influence police investigation,” he said.
