Police source has said “no bail” and Dato’ Seri will be detained for 24 hours (i.e. overnight).
UPDATE 10.30 pm
Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim has left Hospital Kuala Lumpur after superficial body check and he is now back at IPK. The bail situation is still unclear at the moment.
UPDATE 2.30 pm
It has been confirmed that Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim was arrested on the way back to his house in Bukit Segambut at about 12.55 pm after his cut-short meeting with the ACA this morning.
7 cars with 30 UTK officers wearing masks (balaclavas) were involved in intercepting his car and arresting him.
Currently Dato’ Seri Anwar is at IPK Kuala Lumpur. YB Datin Wan Azizh, with their youngest daughter, is also present.
YB Nurul Izzah initially was not allowed to see Dato’ Seri Anwar but after protests by her and the Pakatan Rakyat MPs present she was allowed to do so. About 20 Pakatan Rakyat MPs are in IPK now but they are not allowed to see Dato’ Seri Anwar and are confined to the canteen area.
(We will update as and when possible as new development unfolds.)
BREAKING NEWS!!! 1.15 pm
Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim was arrested while on his way back from his meeting with the ACA concerning his police report on allegation of fabrication of evidence regarding his ‘black eye’ incident in 1999.
This does not make sense at all.
Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim had agreed that he will be at IPK KL at 2.00 pm today. In fact, his meeting with the ACA this morning was cut short so that he can be at IPK KL on time!
It would appear that this is a politically-motivated arrest.
