According to lawyer Sankara Nair, Anwar’s arrest had nothing to do with his non-appearance at the police headquarters on Monday.
“In fact, several minutes before the arrest, the investigation officer DSP Jude Pereira called us to ask if were coming. We replied that we would be there at 2pm sharp,” he said.
“If Anwar had not showed up at 2pm, I would understand the need to arrest. The police have breached the trust and confidence we once had.
“Now, my client has expressed fear that he will be subjected to intimidation by the police,” he added.
Sankara Nair said the police must explain the purpose of arresting Anwar in such a manner.
He also stressed that under the law, Anwar does not need to provide the police with a DNA sample.
Deputy national police chief Ismail Omar confirmed Anwar had been arrested, saying he was a suspect in the sodomy case and would need to undergo a ‘medical examination’.
“He is not being charged with anything yet, don’t jump to conclusions,” Ismail reportedly had told AFP.
What will the 'medical examination' Deputy IGP Ismail spoke about consist of?
What is the purpose of it?
I am of the opinion that, if the police forcefully take a DNA sample from Anwar Ibrahim, then this DNA sample could easily be mishandled, doctored or misused and could be used to fabricate evidence to incriminate him.
A DNA sample should only be provided later, should it be deemed necessary.
