What “protection for whistle blowers” is Anwar Ibrahim talking about now?

What protection against whistle blowers is Anwar Ibrahim, Wan Azizah Ismail and the whole PKR talking about now, which the rest of ‘like-minded Malaysians’ are talking about too as well?

In 1997, Anwar as the acting Prime Minister whilst Dato’ Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad was on a three month holiday in South America, specifically instructed the Police Special Branch, through its Director CP Dato’ Mohd. Said Awang and Deputy Director II SAC I Dato’ Amir Junus to ‘hunt down’ “whistle blowers” Azizan Abu Bakar and Ummi Halfida Ali and make them retract their earlier letter for the allegations on Anwar’s sexual misconducts and sodomy practices.

The SB located both Azizan and Ummi seeking refuge at Dr. Ristina Majid’s home in Bukit Pantai and the Police had broken through metal grill on the door, to arrest them. When under Police custody, both were ‘tortured’ (a process which was said in court as “turn-over process”) until they agreed to sign the retraction sworn statements against the earlier allegations, by Azizan dated 18 August 1997 and Ummi on 29 August 1997.

All of these were discovered by CID senior investigating officer ACP Musa Hassan when Anwar’s political secretary Azmin Ali made a police report right after the UMNO General Assembly June 1998 on Khalid Jafri’s book “50 Dalil Kenapa Anwar Tidak Boleh Menjadi Perdana Menteri

Malaysians learned about all of these when Anwar Ibrahim was charged on 5 October 1998 and tried in a Kuala Lumpur High Court and Justice Augustine Paul handed down a conviction of six years in prison for this criminal act. All avenues to overturn this judgment has been fully exhausted and till present, Anwar remained a convicted criminal.

So if Anwar Ibrahim himself went against “whistle blowers”, what is he, his darling missus and the rest of the endangered political creatures soon to be extinct called Parti Keadilan Rakyat talking about now? Have they conveniently forgotten this episode a little over ten years ago?
