They say he did it!

The online edition of Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald quoted Singapore intelligence officials as saying that the de facto leader of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim actually did engage in the conduct (sodomy) for which he is currently standing trial.

According to the online paper the information exposed by the infamous online whistle-blowing site, Wikileaks, was relayed to Australia’s National Office of Intelligence (ONA) by its Singaporean counterpart, which went on to spin it as a case of entrapment by Anwar’s ‘enemies’ in Malaysia.

In a swift reply this afternoon Anwar tweeted the source of the report as coming from Malaysia’s Special Branch (SB) and that there was no proof of the allegation.

The information is among several cables that deal with private views of Senior Singapore officials, which included statements that said Malaysia was a “confused and dangerous” state as a result of incompetent politicians.

The alleged cable dated November 2008 that was exclusively released to Australia’s newspaper The Sun-Herald stated: ''The Australians said that Singapore's intelligences services and [Singaporean elder statesman] Lee Kuan Yew have told ONA in their exchanges that opposition leader Anwar 'did indeed commit the acts for which he is currently indicted'.''

The document went on to say the Singapore intelligence told ONA that the assessment was based “technical intelligence” believed to be intercepted communications.
