Day 1 Summary
Day One of the second high-profile sodomy trial of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim proved to be full of drama —
accuser Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan stunned the packed High Court when he revealed that his former boss asked him point blank if he could have sex with him when they were alone in a condominium in 2008.
The Opposition Leader even used a four-letter slang word in English when he made the indecent proposal to the former personal aide, the court heard
Mini rally: Anwar being mobbed by the crowd at the court complex yesterday.
The lanky 24-year-old is the key witness in the trial, in which the prosecution fired the first salvo yesterday, telling the court they would prove that semen specimens taken from Mohd Saifuls anus belonged to Anwar.
Further sordid details, however, will not be for public consumption as Justice Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah ordered that the court proceedings be held in camera following a request by lead counsel Karpal Singh. (TS)
