"(5) This case will fall in history. It will be chronicled as the only known case in our country or for that matter within the Commonwealth enclave where the appellant as an accused person persistently and consistently filed one application after another in an attempt to recuse the learned trial judge from hearing and continuing to hear the sodomy trial which is ongoing.
 It seems that the appellant here is trying his level best to scuttle his sodomy trial for reasons best known to him, much to the chagrin of the prosecution and the exasperation of the members of the public at large."
The above quote was attributed to Appeals Court judge -
Y.A. Datuk Haji Abdul Malik Bin Haji Ishak in Anwar Ibrahim's statement which the Opposition leader read out from the accused' dock in the High Court of Kuala Lumpur on Monday.
Why Anwar Ibrahim chose to merely read out a prepared statement from the dock and NOT TESTIFY UNDER OATH is anybody's guess.
No doubt that his statement appeared very much vexatious and attacked just about anybody, including allegations of an illicit scandal between his accuser Saiful and a lady who was assisting the DPP. (Wonder what this has to do with the sodomy trial)
That he was not willing to be questioned or cross-examined over Saiful's complaints of sodomy is certainly more glaring now despite the carefully crafted 8,825 word statement which attacked almost every pillar plus the presiding judge.
Even a certain Appeals Court judge was not spared in his tirade.
Parti Keadilan Rakyat vice-president N.Surendran issued a pretty confusing statement 'Why Anwar Ibrahim Made an Unsworn Statement From The Dock - (an afterthought in the wee hours of Tuesday?).
In trying to justify why Anwar Ibrahim (who is accused of sodomising his personal assistant cum tea boy Saiful) refused to testify UNDER OATH, Surendran is even prepared to sully the good name of South Africa's Statesman Nelson Mandela.
Bro, Anwar Ibrahim is no Nelson Mandela and Nurul Izzah is not Aung San Suu Kyi. Generally anyone with a fair bit of functioning grey-matter could see through your drama.
Why don't you guys just tell the TRUTH. Keep the conspiracy theories for your memoirs and just show proof that you're innocent and did not sodomise Saiful.
Why is it so difficult? This is the same judiciary which set you free a couple of years ago, remember?
You must certainly remember what the judges said about you, your sodo-mee and why the court (2-1) decided to overturn your earlier conviction?
We are just simply tired of your antics la, Anwar Ibrahim! Could you behave like just any other citizen (equal before the law)?
I really don't think that you're some God-sent being that should be accorded special privileges. Malaysia doesn't owe you anything, you owe her many explanations.
Lastly Anwar Ibrahim, you rightly quoted justice Datuk Haji Abdul Malik Haji Ishak in your UNSWORN statement in court, particularly the paragraphs highlighted at the beginning of this jotting.
The learned judge has rightly highlighted the fact that people are not dumb and you could no longer pull the wool over their eyes.
Just tell the truth!
p/s If this frank observation is considered subjudice or in contempt of court, then Surendran's statement and Anwar Ibrahim's 32-page tirade plus all his public statements against the judiciary and judges must be nothing but MURDER!
p/s1 YB NoRule, your twitter attacks show a certain degree of desperation. Takut apa tu?
