It looked like the Wall Street Journal has become judge and jury of Anwar Ibrahim's sodomy case.It has, arbitrarily, declared Anwar's innocent.
It has also confirmed the involvement of Najib's in the case.It says "Also troubling is the public involvement of Prime Minister Najib Razak, who was deputy leader at the time of Mr. Anwar's 2008 arrest—and the man most politically threatened by Mr. Anwar's popularity".
Najib should consider a libel suit against the newspaper.
Is this a respectable newspaper or a new brand of yellow journalism, published, without batting an eye for the truth, giving credence to what Anwar and his retinue of supporters claimed to be the truth? The full story here.
Tell me how many criminals have admitted to crimes committed by them? Ninety-nine percent of the time they pleaded not guilty.
In his classic work "Inside The Criminal Mind" Stanton Samenow, a research psychologist, after working three decades with criminals reaffirmed that "Criminals know right from wrong. In fact, some know the laws better than their lawyers do. But they believe that whatever they want to do at any given time is right for them. Their crimes require logic and self-control".
Would Anwar get a fair trail? Even if he did, does it matter, the world has been taken in by Anwar's very clever sophistry.
