Loqluck govt... They are charging PM-in-waiting tomorrow for sex-juboq

PM-in-waiting Anwar Ibrahim said Wednesday he had been informed he would be formally charged with sodomy on Thursday -- a crime punishable by up to 20 years imprisonment. "They are charging me tomorrow. It's for sodomy," Anwar told reporters, adding that the authorities had informed him of the move in a letter.
Meanwhile Deputy Inspector-General of Police Ismail Omar said today the move to charge Anwar was made following a decision by the Attorney-General's office. He said a written notice had been issued to Anwar to be present at the Kuala Lumpur Session's Court, Jalan Duta, at 10am tomorrow.
The move by the police is the culmination of a month-long investigation into a sodomy complaint by Anwar's former aide that grabbed headlines. Coincidentally, the serving of the notice comes on the day the Election Commission (EC) fixed Aug 16 as nomination day for the Permatang Pauh parliamentary by-election in Penang and Aug 26 for polling if there is a contest.
Anwar announced last week he would contest a by-election for a seat vacated by his wife.
In a press conference at the PKR headquarters after he had received the police notice, Anwar said he was being prosecuted for "a crime that I did not commit". He also slammed the timing of the decision, saying it was a conspiracy to bring him down.
