The National Blood Bank (NBB) on Friday contacted Dr. Mohamed Halim Abu Bakar, the co-ordinator Pra-Ramadhan Blood Donation Campaign, co-organised by ANSARA-Utusan Malaysia, which was carried out in several cities all over Malaysia 7-9 September. This time, NBB asked ANSARA to help out organize another blood donation campaign, in anticipation of the upcoming long weekend Hari Raya Aidil Fitri holidays.

Even though the early September campaign managed to collect 2,200 pints of blood nationwide, The National Blood Bank currently is low on blood storage. Therefore, NBB is asking ANSARA to help organize another campaign.

This campaign will be carried out on the grounds of Masjid Jame Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur on Monday, 8 October 2007, beginning 7.30 pm (after Maghrib prayers).

All are welcome.

 

Preservation of life, regardless race, religion or creed, is the current flavour of the week in local medias, especially after Tee Hui Yee’s heart and lung transplant which managed to garner so much attention from all walks of life amongst Malaysians.

Azizan Abu Bakar: Anwar sodomised me fifteen times!

Azizan: Anwar liwat saya 15 kali

Topic: KOMENTAR

Dakwaan Malaysia-Today dalam artikel “Nothing but a den of thieves” bahawa Azizan Abu Bakar menafikan beliau diliwat oleh Anwar Ibrahim merupakan satu penyelewengan fakta dan cubaan mengelirukan pembacanya bagi menegakkan perjuangan lamanya.

Berikut ialah petikan-petikan perbicaraan dalam Mahkamah yang dipetik daripada Utusan Online.


KUALA LUMPUR 2 Ogos – Saksi utama pendakwa, Azizan Abu Bakar, mendedahkan di Mahkamah Tinggi di sini hari ini, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim pernah meliwatnya sebanyak 10 hingga 15 kali sejak tahun 1992.
Azizan memberitahu, ia berlaku di Hotel Holiday Villa dan Hyatt Saujana kedua-duanya di Subang, dekat sini, serta di sebuah bilik tetamu di kediaman rasmi bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri.
Bekas pemandu peribadi isteri Anwar, Datin Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, itu juga membuat pendedahan Anwar meliwatnya kali pertama di sebuah banglo di Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.

Ketika ditanya oleh Peguam Negara, Tan Sri Mohtar Abdullah, yang mengendalikan soalan dalam pemeriksaan utama pendakwa, Azizan menyatakan semua kejadian berlaku sebelum dia diliwat di apartmen mewah Tivoli Villa di sini.

Azizan menyatakan demikian ketika dipanggil sebagai saksi pendakwa keenam dalam perbicaraan terhadap bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri itu yang dituduh meliwatnya.
Anwar, 51, dibicarakan bersama-sama adik angkatnya, Sukma Darmawan Sasmitaat Madja, 38, yang menghadapi dua tuduhan bersubahat dengannya dan meliwat mangsa, 38.

Mereka berdua dituduh melakukan kesalahan itu pada satu malam, di antara Januari hingga Mac 1993, pukul 7.45, di unit No. 10-7-2, Tivoli Villa, Jalan Medang Tanduk, Bangsar di sini.

Ketika sidang sesi petang yang didengar secara terbuka, peguam Christopher Fernando yang mewakili Anwar menarik perhatian mahkamah bahawa keterangan Azizan mengenai kejadian di Port Dickson itu dikemukakan kali pertama dalam perbicaraan ini.

Bagaimanapun Mohtar menyatakan pihak pendakwa tidak akan mengemukakan soalan lanjut berhubung kejadian di Port Dickson.
Soalan pihak pendakwa selanjutnya berkisar mengenai kejadian liwat sejak tahun 1992.

Mohtar: ”Mengapa anda membiarkan diri diliwat sepanjang masa sebelum kejadian di Tivoli Villa?”

Azizan: ”Saya berasa takut kerana Datuk Seri Anwar berkuasa ketika itu. Saya tertekan kerana tidak menyangka beliau yang selalu memperjuangkan Islam dan dipandang mulia oleh masyarakat sanggup melakukan perbuatan itu terhadap saya. Beliau telah mengambil kesempatan terhadap kelemahan saya.”

Mohtar: ”Setelah diliwat kali pertama, mengapa anda terus bekerja dengan isteri beliau, Datin Seri Dr. Wan Azizah?”

Azizan: ”Fikiran saya bercelaru, saya amat menghormati Datin Seri Dr. Wan Azizah manakala anak-anaknya juga rapat dengan saya.”

Azizan kemudian menyatakan, dia bersetuju menerima pelawaan Dr. Wan Azizah sebagai pemandu peribadi dan hanya sempat bertahan selama dua minggu iaitu sebelum Hari Raya pada 1994.

Menurut Azizan, dia berhenti berkhidmat dengan isteri Anwar kerana bimbang kejadian liwat tersebut akan berulang.

Soalan pendakwa selanjutnya berkisar mengenai pertemuan Azizan dengan Anwar di kediaman rasmi tertuduh pada akhir bulan Jun tahun lalu yang diatur oleh juruiringnya, Asisten Supritendan Zull Aznam Haron.

Sebelum Azizan memberi keterangan berhubung perjumpaan itu, Fernando mengemukakan bantahan kerana keterangan tersebut adalah suatu dengar cakap melainkan Zull Aznam dipanggil untuk mengesahkannya.

Bagaimanapun Hakim Datuk Ariffin Jaka bersetuju dengan hujah Peguam Negara bahawa ia bukan dengar cakap kerana perbualan di antara saksi itu dengan Zull Aznam adalah secara langsung.

Menurut Azizan, Zull Aznam menghubunginya melalui telefon menjemputnya ke kuarters pengawal polis yang berhampiran dengan kediaman rasmi untuk makan malam.

Bagaimanapun, kata saksi itu, sesampainya di kuarters itu, Zull Aznam memberitahu bahawa Anwar ingin bertemunya.

Menurut Azizan, tertuduh dalam pertemuan itu telah memintanya berbohong dan menafikan surat pengakuan bersumpah yang pernah dibuatnya jika dia dipanggil oleh pihak polis.

”Anwar memaklumkan bahawa dia ditohmah menyebabkan kematian isteri saya dalam satu kemalangan jalan raya dan menyimbah darah binatang ke rumah saya seperti yang disebut dalam buku 50 Dalil Mengapa Anwar Tidak Boleh Jadi PM. Saya katakan perkara itu tidak benar kerana kematian isteri saya adalah akibat kemalangan biasa,”jelas saksi itu.


Menurut Azizan lagi, Zull Aznam tidak hadir dalam perjumpaan yang diadakan di sebuah bilik di kediaman rasmi tertuduh.

Anwar Did Sodomise Me, Says Azizan

KUALA LUMPUR Aug 16 – Azizan Abu Bakar, the former driver of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s wife, told the High Court here that Anwar and his adopted brother, Sukma Darmawan Sasmitaat Madja, did sodomise him.

”It definitely took place,” he said under re-examination by Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohtar Abdullah, who is leading the prosecution team, at their joint sodomy trial, which entered its 42nd day today.

Facing Justice Datuk Arifin Jaka, Azizan said he could not remember the exact date it happened but it occurred about four to five months after he had stopped working as the driver of Anwar’s wife, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, in September 1992.

Asked how he could remember the date, Azizan said it was because it occurred soon after Sukma’s apartment in Tivoli Villa had been completed.

Anwar, 52, the former deputy prime minister and finance minister, and Sukma, 38, are separately charged with sodomising Azizan, 38, at Sukma’s apartment at unit no 10-7-2, Tivoli Villa, Jalan Medang Tanduk, Bangsar, here, between January and March, 1993.
Sukma, a boutique owner, faces another charge of abetting Anwar in the commission of the offence, at the same time and place.

Azizan said that he had informed the investigating officer of the case, SAC 1 Musa Hassan, of the date when Musa asked him to remember the date carefully before recording his statement.

Musa, he said, had read back to him what he had recorded down and he had signed the statement when he was satisfied that what was recorded by Musa was accurate.
At this juncture, Mohtar informed the court that he would tender the statement later to prove Azizan’s consistency

August 1999.
