Speaking at the Perkasa office, the opposition leader’s former confidante dares him to sue over the allegation.
“Anwar is a bisexual,” he said. “Sue me in court if you are man enough.”
Speaking at a press conference held at the Jalan Pahang office of the Malay rights group Perkasa, he said he would reveal the “names of people’s wives and boys who slept with him” if Anwar took him to court.
He asked Anwar to explain why he had not sued SH Alattas, the author of Tuhan, Politik dan Seks, the cover of which features the opposition leader wearing lipstick.
He also criticised PAS spiritual leader Nik Aziz Nik Mat for not issuing an edict to disallow bisexuals from being opposition leader.
He said he had briefed three PAS leaders on Anwar’s activities. “I have explained to them but I don’t want to name them.”
Nallakaruppan, who leads the Malaysian Indian United Party, also claimed to have witnessed Anwar having illicit sex at Tivolli Villa.
“I was the one who brought him there,” he said.
Asked to explain his motive for making the accusation, he said he wanted to save the country from Anwar.
“In 1998, he told me that he would destroy the country if he could not be prime minister,” he claimed.
Nallakaruppan in 1998 faced the death sentence for arms possession. Many believe his arrest was an excuse to hold him in custody so that he could be pressured to defame Anwar.
“I safeguarded a friend then,” he said. “Now I am safeguarding the country.”
