Anwar ‘no’ to foreign forensic expert
Anwar wants transparency and professionalism
KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will not agree to the idea of a foreign forensic expert of his choice to draw a DNA sample from him, said lawyer R. Sivarasa.
“They (the police) fail to understand Anwar’s concern as explained this afternoon. It does not address the possible fabrication of DNA (test results) starting with Saiful (Bukhari Azlan) himself,” he said yesterday.

To a question whether Anwar and his lawyers would consider allowing the international expert to carry out the DNA test, he said they could “start to look at that” as the expert might be able to advise them.
However, he said this would not make a difference if there was a possibility that the samples would be tampered with.
He said they would resist any legal action for Anwar to provide a DNA sample because the law does not provide for it.
At his press conference earlier, Anwar had said that if there was “compelling evidence one, two, three and four which needs an international expert,” then he would be willing to submit to DNA testing.(The Star Online)
Now, who dictates whom? Funny, is'nt it?
Hey! I mean it's just like watching a heavyweight being pitted against a lightweight in a boxing arena in town. Anyone betting? Irrespective of whether one is from the high profile than the other. everyone should be given equal rights. As of late some say someone is getting all the spotlight glitters, while on the other side some say they still hear a deafening silence. The people are getting more tired and confused as the days go by. A common middle-aged housewife, waiting for the train commuter at the Kepong Central Railway Station asked,"Who started all these ah..?
