"Ambassador Rice emphasised to Mr Anwar that the United States has followed his case closely, and that the decision to prosecute him and the trial have raised a number of concerns regarding the rule of law and the independence of the courts," a White House statement said after their meeting in Kuala Lumpur.Wrapping up a US visit to Malaysia led by President Barack Obama, Rice also called on the government of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to ensure the rule of law in the country.Anwar says the charge is false and part of a long-running government campaign to smear his name with charges of sodomy, which is illegal in Malaysia.
Its Foreign Ministry will also address the issue during its next round of bilateral talks with Malaysia.Paulsen had said that Shafee appointment as ad hoc deputy public prosecutor to lead the prosecution team to overturn the acquittal of Anwar, should also be seen as doing public service.

Shafee Abdullah the Godman it alluring to the gullible public and casts a overpowering spell on them to follow in blind adoration the Godman like the pied piper of Hamlin. So goes the legend.Critics of the Federal Court’s decision says Sodomy2 was scripted by Shafee Abdullah world laughed at Malaysia in law and judiciary
Shafee Abdullah surrounded by beautiful women rustling and hovering about the Guruji in silk and finery, wallowing in his lap of luxuryThe Godman who obviously had miraculous powers. Convinced he is the chosen one, he decides who get incarcerated to cure UMNO, Najib took refuge under the sacred feet of Guruji Shafee Abdullah Why is Shafee keep mouthing off when he has won the case? Even as a AG-aspirant, the classic advocate of the law or prosecutor would led his won cases speak for itself. Truth is Shafee is an AMBULANCE CHASER, AN OPPORTUNIST - he does not believe in the law, he manipulates, he has no faith in the system, he will abuse it anyway he can. Worst, he is an ambulance chaser that does not admit to himself he is one - because he is paid by UMNO, he think he is respectable, in fact, entitled to be highly respected..
It is odd that the government should have chosen law and order as its final alibi after some exhausting self-laceration in its search for a credible explanation In finding anwar guilty, the head 'judge' must explain how the sodomy took place when there's no carpet that was mentioned by saiful (!). He must also explan how the semen samples can be fresh after 4 days What kind of judiciary is this?
According to Malaysiakini the DPM Najib Abdul Razak today admitted that he met Saiful Bukhari Azlan a few days before the latter lodged a police report against Anwar Ibrahim for alleged sodomy. Najib however denied that he had advised Saiful to lodge the police report against Anwar, the PKR de facto leader and opposition chief. The admission by the deputy premier today was a shocker as previously he had acknowledged Saiful meeting his special officer three months ago to seek government scholarship. At the time, he did not disclose about this personal meeting with Saiful.

This was the country's top lawyer's reasoning in answering the burning question people have been asking on why Saiful was not charged with sodomy as well.
Najib's addmission that he met Saiful arouses more question than answers. a. Najib's addmission that he met Saiful,is truly captivating. Firstly,the admission, why now?,why not earlier? Saiful says he is sodomized,he should go to the police not to Najib. Surely they must be hiding something. b. Its so easy for Saiful to walk in and out the DPM's office and house,though we know that the security surrounding the DPM is very tight.Unless,there is something going on,say like they are concocting some plan, and that might explain as to why the security lag on Saiful. c. Najib said: "I was sceptical, I was not sure whether there was any basis or whether it was genuine or whatever it was. I was worried, so I said ‘look, it's up to you (to decide on the next course of action)." - obviously when you are faced with a tough decision,you wont straight away say,"go make a police report". Morever the person involved is a well known enemy. He(Najib) would rather give the guy(Saiful) some benefit of doubt and I am sure much more things were said to that effect. Thats when the script writers were brought in to start the conspiracy.
Najib Do you consider that he did not tell the truth earlier? or, he hid the truth? or, he forgot? Oh, it was half of the truth; but he did tell the truth! I think he forgotten about it. He just remembered today after his special adviser reminded him that he met up with Saiful in his house, and not in the office.
The office of the AG is sacrosanct and any candidate must be seen to be neutral and above politics," Paulsen told It is instructive to be mindful of the past when engaging with the prophecies of impending doom that seem to be dominating conversations of the beautiful people with a stake the old Establishment was only nominally dispossessed The doomsday narrative has captivated an influential section of now based intelligentsia and its global friends. They have interpreted the fierce desire for change that is resonating in Malaysia as the harbinger of a new authoritarianism that will pander to corporate greed and religious intolerance. In the immediate aftermath of 2013 election, this anxiety was translated into a gush-gush endorsement of Anwar and his friends. However, ever since the white-cap crusaders got drunk on media hype and made a series of tactical miscalculations, concern has given way to visible depression into bouts of premature celebration, it is proving psychologically devastating to the Praetorian guards Palace of Justice (Malay: Istana Kehakiman; Jawi: ايستان كهكيمن) Over generations the UMNO has nurtured and patronized an intellectual establishment that loosely shared its political as sumptions. These notables fear marginalization and consequent loss of social importance and political influence. They feared it in 1998 too but inveigled their way back, fiercely exploiting the strange desire of some UMNO leaders to acquire social respectability.i, they believe, is cut from a very differ ent cloth. If elected, Anwar may actually begin craft ing an alternative counter-Establishment and not give a damn for the prevailing wisdom in the boudoirs of UMNO readmore http://
