Polis menahan ketua umum PKR Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim di luar rumahnya di Segambut Dalam dan dibawa ke ibu pejabat polis Kuala Lumpur tengahari ini.

Beliau ditahan sekumpulan anggota polis, termasuk yang bertopeng dan berjaket – dipercayai Bahagian Jenayah Berat, kira-kira sejurus tiba dari Putrajaya selepas memberi keterangan kepada Badan Pencegah Rasuah (BPR) di Putrajaya.

Menurut peguam R Sivarasa, pihak polis telah menunggu kepulangan Anwar dan sebaik sahaja tiba, mereka membawa mantan timbalan perdana menteri itu, ke dalam kereta polis bercermin gelap dan membawanya ke IPK Kuala Lumpur.

Anwar tiba di IPK Kuala Lumpur jam  1.11 tengahari dengan dikawal oleh konvoi 15 kenderaan.

Manakala Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail mengesahkan kepada pemberita di Parlimen bahawa Anwar telah ditahan.

Katanya, beliau menerima panggilan telefon dari Anwar yang mengesahkan bahawa beliau telah ditahan.

Anwar juga, katanya, memberitahu bahawa beliau dilayan secara kasar oleh anggota polis yang menahannya itu.

Wan Azizah berkata, Anwar memintanya pulang ke rumah untuk menenangkan anak-anaknya dan kemudiannya pergi ke pejabat polis terbabit.

Naib presiden PKR, Azmin Ali tiba kira-kira jam 1.26 tengahari, dan menyifatkan tindakan polis itu sebagai “tidak bertamadun” kerana Anwar telah mengesahkan akan datang.

Lagi pula, tambahnya, masa yang diberikan oleh polis sehingga jam 2 petang juga belum lagi tamat.

Beliau juga menyifatkan tindakan polis sebagai tidak wajar kerana Anwar dikeluarkan dari keretanya di tepi jalan utama.

Kira-kira 200 penyokong Anwar termasuk ahli-ahli parlimen Pakatan Rakyat kini berhimpun di IPK Kuala Lumpur.

Mereka termasuk Yusmadi Yusof, Zuraidi Kamaruddin, Dr Zulkifly Ahmad, Dr Hatta Ramli, Tian Chua serta Karpal Singh.

Wan Azizah pula tiba dengan anak perempuannya, Nurul Nuha pada jam 1.30 hari.

Difahamkan Anwar akan didakwa mengikut Seksyen 377C, Kanun Keseksaan. Dalam pindaan terbaru, peruntukan ini berbunyi seperti berikut: Di bawah seksyen ini, seseorang melakukan kesalahan jika dia membuat hubungan seks dengan orang lain dengan memasukkan sesuatu benda ke dalam faraj atau dubur orang yang satu lagi itu.

Jika sabit kesalahan, orang yang melakukan kesalahan itu boleh dihukum dengan hukuman pemenjaraan sehingga 20 tahun dan boleh juga dihukum sebat.

Malaysiakini: Anwar arrested outside his house
Jul 16, 08 1:16pm
Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was arrested by the police just outside his home in Bukit Segambut, Kuala Lumpur, at 12.55pm today.

The de facto PKR leader was on his way back to his house after being questioned by the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA).

A team of police officers were waiting, according to lawyer R Sivarasa.

Anwar was driven away in a 4WD vehicle with tinted windows, escorted by a convoy of 15 patrol cars. They arrived at Kuala Lumpur police headquarters at 1.11pm.

It is believed that members of a special team from the serious crime division – sporting balaclavas and leather jackets – were also involved in the operation.  

At 1.40pm, about 200 supporters and opposition parliamentarians were assembled outside the building. Among them is DAP leader Karpal Singh.

Anwar was to have met the police by 2pm to be questioned over the complaint of sodomy against him by a former aide, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

According to media reports today, a warrant of arrest had already been obtained, to be used in the event of a no-show.

Anwar’s wife and PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail confirmed the arrest.

She told reporters in parliament that she had received a call from Anwar and that he had complained of rough treatment by the arresting officers.

“I received a call from my husband that the police picked him up just before he reached the house,” she said.

“I didn’t have time to ask whether there was a warrant… He’s on the way – this is my guess – to the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters, where he was supposed to report at 2pm.”

Anwar also told her to return to their home first in order to calm their children and come to the police headquarters later.

“I’m apprehensive because my husband – it’s been 10 years down the road. He is not well, he has a bad back for which he has (undergone) surgery,” said Azizah, who appeared visibly distraughted and numbed by the news.

“From the brief conversation, he said that they (the police) were not gentle.”

It is learnt that Anwar is to be charged under Section 377C of the Penal Code which relates to ‘carnal intercourse against the order of nature’. 

A recent amendment to the provision reads: ‘Any person who has sexual connection with another person by the introduction of any object into the vagina or anus of the other person shall be punished with imprisonment or a term which may extend to 20 years and shall also be liable to whipping.’

A number of the parliamentarians and Anwar’s family members have been allowed into the IPK building, while journalists are  being confined to the carpark.

A small team of police light-strike force personnel, accompanied by a water-cannon truck, is keeping a watchful eye on supporters who are milling outside the compound.

According to PKR MP Wee Choo Keong, who is inside the building, Wan Azizah and her two daughters – Nurul Izzah and Nurul Nuha – were allowed to see Anwar on the 7th floor at about 2pm. 

At 2.35pm, Wan Azizah and her daughters, as well as Anwar’s lawyer Sankara Nair came out of the building.
