WARNING !!! Action will be taken on SPECULATORS of the two high-profile cases!
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said bloggers, news websites and certain printed media continued to speculate on the two cases (Anwar’s sodomy allegation and Balasubramaniam’s statutory declaration against Najib Tun Razak) although police were still investigating them (Source: New Straits Times).
“Baseless rumours were also being spread among the public regarding these cases. This is very dangerous as it has negative implications on society,” Ismail said at Bukit Aman yesterday.
Looks like the police has to detain like millions of people in the country, coz sorry mate, the whole country is speculating – everywhere – coffee shops, universities, government departments, hospitals…
These stories have spread like wild fire. I don’t think it’s gonna stop, not for a hundred years to come.
You can’t help it. The police, the AG chambers, the judiciary, they have all lost their credibility. It’s hard to restore that. And who is to blame? No one but yourselves.
And to me, this warning simply comes across as a threat to those who want to pressure the relevant parties to reveal the truth and take the appropriate action immediately. Don’t you feel so?
And now for a little update on the two cases (and we are supposed to be satisfied with it), that Ismail said:
On the sodomy allegation against Anwar, by his former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, Ismail said police had recorded statements from more than 20 witnesses.
“We have yet to record Anwar’s statement but we expect to do it soon.”
On Balasubramaniam, Ismail said the former Special Branch detective was in good health when he had his statement recorded at an undisclosed overseas location, earlier this week.
Ismail said Balasubramaniam had left the country on his own accord and it was still unclear whether or not he intends to return home anytime soon.
