Saiful hated Anwar, campaigned for BN, says witness.
FMT ALERTKUALA LUMPUR: The “mystery witness” in Anwar Ibrahim’s Sodomy II trial today turned out to be a former college mate of accuser Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
Mohd Najwan Ali, who now works at the office of Selangor economic adviser (Anwar), said he knew Saiful since 2003 and was shocked when Saiful joined Anwar’s office in 2008 as he had previously expressed hatred towards Anwar and was very “pro-government”.
“When I knew him, he hated Anwar, from all the conversations I had with him,” said Najwan.
Najwan said that he had previously seen in Saiful’s social networking site Friendster a photo showing a banner saying “Anwar pemimpin munafiq” (Anwar is a hypocritical leader) and another with the Barisan Nasional (BN) logo.
Najwan testified that he believed the photos meant Saiful had campaigned for BN, and Saiful told him that Anwar could not be trusted.
He also said Saiful was “publicity crazy” and loved attention.
