PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim could be arrested when he goes to the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters tomorrow to have his statement recorded on the sodomy allegation against him.
This was revealed in a letter from investigating officer DSP Jude Pereira which Sankara Nair (Anwars, Lawyer) received at about 1pm.
The lawyer added that based on his conversation with Pereira, “Anwar is a suspect and may be arrested tomorrow.” [See full letter below]
PKR has warned that its supporters would hold mass demonstrations if Anwar is taken into custody.
“It is surprising that they have resorted to such actions. If they arrest Anwar, we will have no choice but to take to the streets,” said party information chief Tian Chua.
Massive demonstrations erupted after Anwar’s arrest on sodomy and corruption charges a decade ago, in a reformasi movement that continues to reverberate in Malaysian politics to this day.
