KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 1 — PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil lodged a police report today against Umno supreme council member Datuk Lokman Noor Adam over the latter’s viral Facebook post alleging PKR president-elect Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of sodomy again.
Fahmi, who is also a Lembah Pantai MP, urged the authorities to take immediate action over the matter to stop Lokman from making further “baseless” statements, news portal Malaysiakini reported.
“I lodged this report because I think this is a statement with malicious intent, full of accusations and allegations and an attempt at trying to change public perception of Anwar who is a candidate for the Port Dickson by-election,” he was quoted as saying.
Previously, Lokman had claimed in his Facebook post that that an Indonesian student had lodged a police report after he was allegedly sodomised by Anwar, quoting BERITA Mediacorp Singapore as the source.
Mediacorp has denied publishing such a news report and had contacted Lokman to remove the post.
The news outlet also reported that the Singapore Police Force has denied any such report.
A check on Lokman’s Facebook post later showed that the Umno man has clarified that the article was not published by BERITA.
