Anwar Ibrahim Arrested

In Anwar Ibrahim on July 16, 2008 at 6:56 am

malikimtiaz | At 12.55 pm, outside his house. He was due to give a statement to the police at 2.00 pm.

We should remain calm and await further developments. From media reports, it would seem that Anwar Ibrahim was prepared for this and has lawyers at the ready. If he is being arrested in connection with the alleged sodomy, then he should be brought before a magistrate within 24 hours and be charged unless a remand order is obtained to allow for further investigation. The offence is bailable and I see no reasonable basis for bail being refused.

The authorities must take every care to ensure that nothing untoward occurs. We in turn should not be reactionary.
