Mind Your Own Business, YANKEES!

WASHINGTON was trying to meddle in our domestic affairs!

That’s what Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi meant when commenting on a statement by US warning Malaysia against any "politically-motivated investigation or prosecution" into the sodomy case involving Anwar.

US State Department spokesman Tom Casey was quoted as saying that "it hoped there would not be a pattern" because Anwar had faced similar charges in 1998.

Abdullah said the US statement seemed to indicate that the country was "prejudiced" against Malaysia and the enforcement of its laws, and that it was not appropriate for a country, which is one of Malaysia's largest trading partners, to issue such a statement.

"The United States seems to harbour prejudice against us. The Government will not intervene in any investigation. The team carrying out the probe are professionals and they know their duties.

"They know what's permitted of them and what's not," he said yesterday.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak meanwhile said the police probe into the newest police case against Anwar "was never politically motivated".

"It has never been politically motivated at all. Washington had better get their facts right," he said.
