Is Anwar Ibrahim doing the right thing?

Is Anwar doing the right thing by shifting the burden of proof to Saiful? If you accuse someone of hurting you, you have the onus to proof it.'

'I never had any sexual relations with Saiful'

Ferd Tan: Much of the Anwar Ibrahim's testimony is against the unfairness of the presiding judge and the deputy public prosecutors.

We wonder what is going through justice Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah's head as he has to sit in front of Anwar listening to opposition leader's diatribe against him for being unfair.

He went through a series of his obviously flawed judgments - some of which we, as laymen, can discern but the learned judge cannot.

Isa@1penyu: As usual, Anwar gave a political speech packed with hearsay and lies. Refusing to be interviewed is a right, but if Najib and Rosmah refused to go to court, it's a crime?

Anwar is just afraid of being cross-examined because he's afraid the truth will prevail.

Anonymous_408b: Only an idiot don't know trial laws. If giving a statement from the dock is because you're afraid the truth may come out, why would the court allow it?

ONG: I, too, don't like Anwar. My dislike for him started from his Umno days and continues until now, which is different from dislike for Anwar only because he left Umno.

However, my dislike for him does not blind me from seeing through the sham court hearings that have been conducted against him.

Anonymous: Berani kerana benar, takut kerana salah. (Brave because you have the truth, scared because you're in the wrong). Why is Anwar so scared of being cross-examined?

Chin Tu Lan: "Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth." (Buddha)

Anonymous_3e4b: That Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, his wife Rosmah Mansor, former inspector-general of police Musa Hassan and ex-Malacca police chief Mohd Rodwan Mohd Yusof would not cooperate with the accused clearly shows that they do not want the truth to be revealed and their main intention is to attack Anwar politically.

P Dev Anand Pillai: It is the accused person's right to give his testimony from the the dock. Knowing very well that he is never going to get any justice from this court, Anwar has made the right decision.

At least, the other side of the coin will be there for all to see by using this method.

Scheiss: Is Anwar doing the right thing by shifting the burden of proof to Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, the complainant, to prove Anwar's innocence?

By giving his statement from the dock, this is what appears to be unfolding. Anyway, the accusation as Anwar points out is pretty stale - the same players and the same story. Why even bother to call it Sodomy II?

See it this way - if you accuse someone of hurting you, you have the onus of proving it.
