Now that Latheefa Koya has implicated me in the scandals surrounding the circumstances under which the Statutory Declaration (SD) of En Muhammad Rahimi bin Osman (Rahimi), one of the young former aides of YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, was obtained. I am compelled to respond to the immature and thoughtless acts of this desperate PKR young upstart who was trying so hard to implicate me in order to save herself from being prosecuted under the Penal Code for the subsequent SD of Rahimi purportedly sworn on July 1, 2008, two days after the first SD was sworn before me on June 29, 2008.
I shall call for a press conference today in Parliament to clarify this matter as I am now compelled to tell all.
I wish to categorically state that prior to the early hour of June 29, 2008 I have never met or spoken to Rahimi. At all material times I was never involved in the escorting Rahimi to upper floor of Quality Hotel, where YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Datin Seri Wan Azizah, Datuk Sallehuddn, the then PKR Secretary-General, Aser, an American, several others and I were.
Upon Rahimi arrival at the upper floor of the said hotel, he was immediately escorted by several others and YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to another room on the same upper floor of the said hotel. After some time Rahimi was escorted out to the main hall where we were all stationed. En Saiful Izham Ramli, a lawyer and PKR leader in Kedah, introduced him to me. At that material time, he appeared to be nervous.
Rahim affirmed his first SD, which has been alleged by certain quarter to have been lost, before me at the early hour of June 29, 2008. In his first SD, he was only concerned about his security and there was no mention of the involvement of others before En Saiful Bukhari Azlan lodged the police report against YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for sodomising him.
