Shahrir: Perhaps it’s his own plot – NST

2008/07/02

KUALA LUMPUR: “Maybe it’s his own plot.”

That was the cynical remark by Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad when asked about Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s allegation that the sodomy police report against him was a plot by the Barisan Nasional.

He said he did not understand why a report made by a person who was an assistant to Anwar was being linked to the Barisan Nasional government.

“If he has ambitions to be the next prime minister, surely he must have vetted the people he enlists.

“But it was his employee, so maybe it’s his and PKR’s own set-up.”
Shahrir said that if it was indeed a conspiracy by the BN, the coalition’s politicians would not have had their pictures taken with their “spy”.

“That would have been a silly move, we don’t seem to do our conspiracies very well,” he mocked.

Shahrir and other ministers had been photographed with Anwar’s accuser, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

None of them remembered meeting the former student leader.

He said the BN government was busy forming long-term policies as it did not have fears of a takeover.

“If there are going to be crossovers, word would have got out by now.”
