What do all of you think about Najib’s answer regarding to the “victim” picture taken in his office?
Najib: I have no link to Anwar’s accuser or case
KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said he was not connected in any way to the sodomy allegations against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Parti Keadilan Rakyat officials had on Sunday attempted to tie Najib to Anwar’s accuser by producing a picture of the latter in the foyer of the deputy prime minister’s office.
“I am not involved at all in the case. The picture was taken three months ago.”
Najib said the Anwar aide who made the allegations had come to his office on Feb 12 seeking help to obtain a scholarship from the government.
“He was a student leader and met my officer. He also took pictures with other leaders,” he said at the Parliament lobby yesterday after chairing a meeting of the cabinet committee on foreign workers.
Elaborating in a statement to Bernama, Najib said the aide was a former student of Universiti Tenaga Nasional (Uniten) while the officer in the photograph was responsible for, among other things, higher education.“It is normal for guests, particularly students, who come to the office of the deputy prime minister to pose for photographs with officers as a record of their visit.”
Now, I am very very curios. How on earth that he would come out with an answer that the “victim” came to his office for his assistance to obtain government scholarship?
1) The victim is a drop-out of UNITEN…why he need a scholarship? From NST – Accuser a varsity dropout:
KUALA LUMPUR: The man who alleged he was sodomised by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is a former student leader who recently quit his studies.
He was an office-holder in the university’s student representative council for the 2006/2007 session.
However, the 23-year-old quit his studies after failing to make the grade.
The accuser is also said to have recently become engaged to a former college -mate.
Several postings on the Internet have also been attributed to him.
He said after achieving a grade point average of 1.69 in three semesters, he decided to quit university.
Average of 1.69 in three semesters = Gagal Berhenti = Failed = Forced to quit. For UTM, the grading system:
3.70-4.00 ( 1st class)
3.00-3.69 (2nd class upper)
2.30-2.99 (2nd class lower)
2.00 -2.29 (3rd class)
Below 2.00 (failed)
I think it is standard for all universities, below 2.00 means failed. The student is not allowed to continue his/her course if he/she obtained such grade. So, what a drop-out student doing at DPM’s office asking for scholarship? He is not even qualified for any scholarship, for ba-da-wee’s sake! Unless government scholarships are for dropouts.
2) Can an ordinary Malaysian meet Najib’s officer for assistance to obtain government scholarship? What is so special about the victim that he can ask assistance directly from the DPM’s office?
I didn’t know that is possible. Now I know. Hey people!! Get your sons and daughters lining up in front of DPM’s office fast!! Wait, you are not special so don’t bother applying or asking for assistance from his office.
3) The officer is the photo is Khairil Anas Yusof, Najib’s special officer. Oh, he is in charge of , to quote Najib, “among other things, higher education.”? Why do we need Minister of Education or Minister of Higher Education then?
Well, probably Saiful Bukhari went to see him for a letter of support to apply for scholarship which is quite normal. Thing is, why go to DPM’s office and why to see this particular officer but not other officers? So much of ‘coincidence’ eh? This is not normal.
I leave you all with this quote from Malaysiakini.
“The notion that a 61-year old with a bad back can forcibly sodomise a strapping 23-year old is laughable. This is simply not the kind of thing that anyone, not even Anwar’s harshest critic, is going to believe.”
ps: For ba-da-wee’s sake – This is used as an exclamation to show exasperation or irritation.
