And according to Raja Petra of Malaysia Today, the doctor who examined Saiful on June 28, "has gone underground with his family" after he was detained by police for three days.
(Does private investigator Balasubramaniam come to mind? But in this case, the good doctor purportedly stood his ground and refused to budge -- sticking to his report.)
But police, according to the NST online, have made a swift denial of the Malaysiakini report, saying that it was "another attempt to sabotage police investigations".
Here's the rest of the NST report:
"Police, he said, were considering investigating the news website and a blog over their reports, which referred to a medical report allegedly issued by Pusrawi Hospital on Jalan Tun Razak.
The news report claimed that there was no evidence that Anwar’s former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan had been sodomised.
However, Ismail declined to comment on the medical report itself, saying investigations were ongoing.
Ismail also quashed rumours that Dr Mohamed Osman Abdul Hamid, the Pusrawi Hospital medical officer who examined Mohd Saiful on June 28, had been picked up by police.
“Mohamed Osman’s statement had been recorded by police earlier on in the investigation, as such, rumours circulating about his arrest by police are untrue,” Ismail said.
Attempts to get in touch with Pusrawi Hospital officials were futile as all questions were met with a “No comment” answer.
According to the news website, Dr Mohamed Osman had examined Mohd Saiful about four hours before lodging a police report alleging he had been sexually assaulted by Anwar.
Mohd Saiful went to the hospital about 2pm on June 28 complaining of ’tenesmus’, a medical term for difficulty and pain in passing motion.
Dr Mohamed Osman, a Burmese Muslim, is said to be on leave. "
Just so typical -- the developments surrounding the sodomy allegation against Anwar and allegations that Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and wife, Rosmah Mansur are involved in the murder of Mongolian model Altanuya Sharibuu.
At this point and the way things are moving, I tell you, we will never ever know the truth! Because we don't even know what's not....
