Ezam threatens to divulge Anwar’s secrets ?

Former PKR Youth chief Ezam Mohd Nor says he is not shocked over the fresh allegations of sodomy against the party’s de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Ezam said he did not want to state his reasons for not being surprised as it would, otherwise, affect not only Anwar but also the alleged victim and his family.

“I will not touch on it now because it involves police investigations and the pride of the accuser and his family,”

Former Parti Keadilan Rakyat Youth chief Mohamad Ezam Mohd Nor said he will divulge the secrets of PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibahim if he is linked to a political conspiracy over the sodomy report.

"If Anwar or Wan Azizah (PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail) say that I am part of a conspiracy, I will in 24 hours swear as a Muslim that I will fight him," he said at a talk organised by the Shah Alam Umno division and non-governmental organisation Alam Free Speech last night.

Mohamad Ezam said he would divulge all he knew about Anwar although it would bring disgrace to his children and family as he wanted to defend his dignity following speculation that that he received millions of ringgit to join Umno.

He added Anwar should concentrate on the sodomy police report made by his former personal assistant Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, 23, and not talk about a political conspiracy.

It should not be exaggerated to implicate Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak with murdered Mongolian woman Altantuya Shariibuu.

He urged Umno members to defend the party and its leaders who were being “attacked” by Anwar.


Q: Why have you decided to rejoin Umno?

A: Since day one, my passion has been to reform the system, fight injustice and preach the wisdom of the prophets and other true freedom fighters. And lately, there have been major policies undertaken by the PM which I consider pro-reform, especially with regard to the judiciary.

My main goal is to reform government policies and clean up corruption. That is why Gerak was established. (Gerak, or Movement for Democracy and Anti-Corruption, a non-governmental organisation, was established by Mohamad Ezam in 2006.) I want to fight corruption as it is the nation's No. 1 enemy, the crux of curing the ills of society.

I see Umno as the platform for such reformation; as a long-established organisation, it has the power to make things change. I see now that Umno has the space for reformation to move forward, unlike before.

Q: Why did you leave PKR?

A: I left PKR about two years ago because I did not believe that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (the party's de facto leader) was sincere and committed to reforming the country. I clearly saw this. And within the party itself, there is an inner circle formed by an elite that controls the party in undemocratic ways not transparent to other members. This unhealthy culture was around from the time Anwar was still Deputy Prime Minister, and still exists today with PKR vice-president Azmin Ali heading this inner circle.

This is why I could not tolerate it any more. I will reveal what this inner circle has done to the party in due time, not now. All I can say is that some principles have been violated. There has been hypocrisy and insincerity, contradicting the ideals of reformation.
