Dominique Strauss-Kahn may be innocent or guilty as sin. Tales of the powerful and privileged appetite for sexual indiscretions.His case has in every aspect in commonality with Anwar's. It is about sexual indiscretion, lies, arrogance and abuse of power. Though, there is one huge difference between him and Anwar, he readily submits himself to body examination for DNA.
Anwar refused to give DNA sample and made mockery of the judge, the witnesses, the prosecution and the justice system and turned a criminal case into the longest political circus and with it political mileage to his and the opposition advantage.
Since a law compelling suspect to give DNA sample was non existence at that time, he got away with it.He should have, if he is truly innocence, voluntarily given a specimen of his DNA, which would have made life easier for him, the court, the defence and prosecution and would have shorten the case thereby saving court's time and tax payer's money. The police had to used stealthy method to get specimen of his DNA, which has now been found to match those found in the complainant's anus.
The judge has concluded a prima facie case and called for Anwar's defence. He accused the judge of "prejudging his guilt" even before he entered his defence.
To Anwar everything is a political dish for public consumption, the law is of no consequence.
There are many similarities in the two cases.
Many deemed Anwar innocent and victim of a frame up and political persecution. Many Malaysians are still spellbound that he is completely innocent and can do no wrong.
In the case of Kahn the allegation of sexual molestation and attempted rape shocked the French nation and many do not believe he is capable if such heinous behaviour and speculation of possible fixing of his wagon is in the air.Like Anwar's, his wife also stood by his innocence in spite of his wily reputation as the "great seducer" and history of infidelities.
They are classic examples of stand by your man no matter what.Wives from heaven or wayang kulit? Sometimes, power and money can turn a blind eye.
The great synonymity of the two cases are........... though Kahn has not officially confirmed it but seen as the best contender for the top job, both men are gunning for the chief executive positions of their respective country.
Both, might not get to their destinations, because of their own undoing.
