Anwar Ibrahim said there was no need for him to undergo a polygraph test as part of the ongoing police investigation into a sexual complaint filed against him by a former research assistant to the PKR president.


“There is no basis. There is evidence and there is no need,” he told reporters after addressing an international conference.

On Dec 17, police summoned Muhammed Yusoff Rawther, who accused Anwar of sexually assaulting him in October 2018, to undergo a polygraph test at Bukit Aman.

Police, who have yet to release results of the test, have since referred the matter to Attorney-General Tommy Thomas.

Yusoff’s police report against Anwar in early December resulted in a probe by the Classified Criminal Investigation Unit (D5) under Section 354 of the Penal Code, which deals with using criminal force to outrage a person’s modesty. – FMT
