Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim frenzy spreads to Sabah

The “make a police report against Anwar Ibrahim” fever has spread East. On Sunday, a group of Sabah Umno Youth leaders gathered at a police station here to lodge their report against the Opposition Leader, following in the footsteps of similar groups in Peninsular Malaysia.

The group was led by Sabah Umno Youth chief Azman Ruslan and included the leaders of the Pensiangan and Keningau Umno Youth branches as well as the leader of the Liawan Parti Bersatu Sabah Youth, Augustine Nain.

Their report, like the ones lodged in the peninsula, alleged that Anwar had used the names of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the chief of the Defence Forces in his bid to take over the government on Sept 16, 2008.

The allegation was first made in Parliament last week by Bayan Baru MP Zahrain Hashim, who recently defected from PKR to serve as an independent MP.

Zahrain said Anwar told opposition MPs that the king was waiting for him to confirm the number of Barisan Nasional MPs who he said would join the opposition.

The reports also asked the police to investigate the allegation that Anwar had attempted to entice BN MPs to cross over to the opposition.
