M'sia ex deputy PM Anwar Ibrahim 'did commit sodomy' - WikiLeaks
Singapore's intelligence services as well as its minister mentor Lee Kuan Yew believe that opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim "did indeed commit the acts for which he is currently indicted".
This was revealed by WikiLeaks through a release of a US State Department cable issued in Nov 2008.
The cable was exclusively released to the Australian tabloid, The Sun-Herald, and was widely reported by other Australian newspapers yesterday.
WikiLeaks is a website that publishes anonymous submissions and leaks of sensitive governmental, corporate, organisational or religious documents, while attempting to preserve the anonymity and untraceability of its contributors.
The US State Department cable that dealt with Anwar's sodomy case, dated Nov 2008, and was released exclusively to The Sun-Herald by WikiLeaks, had stated: "The Australians said that Singapore's intelligence services and (Singapore elder statesman) Lee Kuan Yew had told Australia's Office of National Assessments (ONA) in their exchanges that opposition leader Anwar 'did indeed commit the acts for which he is currently indicted'."
In the newspaper report, it said the document stated that the Singaporeans told ONA that they made this assessment on the basis of "technical intelligence", which was likely to relate to intercepted communications.
In a posting on Twitter yesterday, Anwar denied the allegations.
Hantu Laut's comment.
(Anwar was quick to jump the gun and blamed the Malaysian Special Branch for the exposure, which was never mentioned in Wikileaks released documents.It mentioned "technical intelligence" related to intercepted communication" and former Singapore Premier Lee Kuan Yew's assertion with ONA (Australia's Office of National Assessment) about Anwar's indiscretion.
When you are going to be the next prime minister of a nation you wouldn't know who is interested in your extracurricular activities and putting you under surveillance.
Most Western nations have their sleuth-hounds all over the place tracking world leaders and would-be world leaders.
Singapore, have all the reasons for sleuthing on our leaders, their peaceful future and co-existence rest on level-headed leaders running the country.
