Saiful Bukhari revealed in court this morning that he did not undergo any examination with Dr Mohd Osman Abd Hamid at Pusat Rawatan Islam as claimed by Raja Petra Kamaruddin in Malaysia Today few weeks after the June 2008 incident.
Saiful described in court that he was asked by Dr Osman to put back on his pants and go to Government Hospital since it is only there where criminal cases are handled. There were no examination done.
In his posting on Malaysia Today back in 2008, Raja Petra made the claim that Dr Osman had examined Saiful and his report shows no physical evidence of any penetration.
This lie based on a falsified document had been repeatedly used by Anwar, PKR and PR leaders in their Ceramah and blog writings. The defense had used this falsified evidence as their argument in court to apply for dismissal of the case.
Below are the falsified medical reports:
Raja Petra had reproduced the medical report later with notes for mass distribution, below:
Karpal Singh had submitted the following medical report from Dr Osman in his opening address to dispell of any evidence of penetration, below:
What a mess they are in.
When the report was produced by Raja Petra, Dr Hasan Novandri of blog Minda Intelek had exa mined the report and raised doubts. In his blog posting dated July 30, 2008 here and other dates, Novandri questioned the diagnosis TRO used in the Medical Report as not the right procedure for sodomy cases.
There were also other obvious weakness with the report.
As far as criminal cases, the court will only use reports produced by Government Hospital. Specifically for this case, the hospital report used by the court is that produced by Hospital Kuala Lumpur where Saiful had went.
In his opening statement on Wednesay, Deputy Public Prosecutor, Datuk Mohamed Yusof Zainal Abiden was reported by The Star below:
"The prosecution says they will establish the sodomy charge against Anwar beyond reasonable doubt. They contend that they will prove the case from direct evidence from Mohd Saiful and forensic testimony from doctors and chemists."What do they mean by direct evidence? Does it mean there is a medical physical evidence to be produced by HKL? Let's get our imagination wild, perhaps there is a video evidence.
All this while, blog followers have been lead to believe that there are only forensic evidence in the form of Anwar's DNA extracted from Saiful's anus.
Forensic evidence applies when there are no physical evidence and must be supported by other evidences like witnesses, CCTV, etc. But with a physical evidence, the prosecution is in a better position.
Anwar claimed he has some 13 alibi witnesses, but he still need to explain his DNA found in Saiful's buttock. Conspiracy? Malicious allegation? Fabrication? Those are old tricks. He better do more than that.
Does it really exist 13 alibis? Do they know the punishment for perjury is imprisonment?
The DNA specimen was presented to the court this morning.
