Try not to laugh / cry too hard when reading this funny / sad story.

“PETALING JAYA: Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said PKR adviser Datuk Seri
Anwar Ibrahim's arrest was not politically motivated and that the Government was not concerned about any backlash.
“A report was lodged against him and the police will have to conduct a thorough investigation to get to the bottom (sic) of the allegation.
“Whatever action being taken is according to the due process of the law,” he told CNN Wednesday night.
Syed Hamid said he understood the concerns of Anwar's family for his safety and assured them that he would be treated fairly and safely.
On Anwar's arrest before he was scheduled to appear before the police at 2pm, the minister said police had already obtained a warrant for his arrest and they had the powers to execute it at anytime.
“This was to avoid any untoward incidents that might have happened if they had to arrest him in his house,” he said”
