Anwar Ibrahim and sex and the CIA


May 31, 2005: Anwar Ibrahim, Malaysia's leading opposition figure, has begun a series of rallies and speeches across the country.


1998: Anwar Ibrahim alleged a smear campaign against him, after two men confessed to allowing Anwar to sodomise them. Anwar was arrested and pled not guilty to charges of corruption and committing illegal homosexual acts.

Azizan Abu Bakar, a former driver for Mr Anwar's wife, told the High Court that Anwar turned him into a "homosexual slave". The driver changes his testimony days later.

'Mistress' claim in Anwar trial

Malaysia's attorney-general said police were responsible for injuries sustained by Anwar Ibrahim while in custody.


Rioting broke out in Kuala Lumpur after Malaysia's former Deputy Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim was convicted of corruption and jailed for six years.

Mr Anwar was charged with sodomy.

Mr Anwar's former driver, Azizan Abu Bakar, was found guilty of sexual misconduct by an Islamic court and sentenced to three months in jail.

A limousine driver told the court he was offered thousands of dollars in return for false testimony that he had provided Anwar with girls and boys for sex. Diplomat 'tried to frame Anwar'

2000: Anwar was found guilty of sodomy and sentenced to nine years in prison, on top of the six year jail sentence he was given in 1999.

Anwar CIA agent?

September 2000: Malaysian politician Lim Kit Siang called on Prime Minister Mahathir to declare the outcome of three years of police investigations as to whether Anwar is a CIA agent and to state whether the United States is the country he meant in a Merdeka Day message as the country out to "recolonize" Malaysia

Anwar was alleged to have received RM60 million from a Mr Nallakaruppan.

Former Bank Negara assistant governor Datuk Abdul Murad Khalid accused Anwar of having amassed a fortune of RM3 billion while in government through over 20 "Master Accounts".

Reference was made to the American-based organisation called Asia Pacific Policy Centre (APPC) headed by Douglas H. Paal, who was former Senior Director from Asian Affairs (1989 to 1993) of the National Security Council (NSC) of the United States.

MPs used parliamentary immunity to claim in Parliament that Anwar was a CIA agent on the basis that the APPC was a CIA outfit and Douglas Paal a CIA agent.

Oddly, Anwar had allegedly given money to APPC and Douglas Paal.



The Straits of Malacca are one of the most important shipping lanes in the world and are used for transporting oil.

Admiral Thomas Fargo, head of U.S forces in the Asia-Pacific in his testimony to U.S House Armed Services Committee had suggested that U.S troops might assist in patrolling the straits to deter terrorists who might target shipping in the Malacca Straits. This suggestion has been resented both by Malaysia and Indonesia.

"A senior police officer allegedly declares he has assets worth RM34 million (US$8.9 million); another rakes in RM200,000 a month from a protection racket he runs. And that's just the tip of the iceberg in Malaysia. These are part of the findings of an independent commission of inquiry, headed by a former judge, that has taken Malaysia's police force to task for human-rights abuses and corruption in a surprisingly frank report released this week."
