Describing the sodomy accusation against him as a 'blatant, vicious lie', he also warned Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan that his allegation will prove to be a big lie soon.
"I state, in no uncertain terms, that I have never had any sexual relations with the complainant, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan. Saiful's allegation is a blatant and vicious lie and will be proved to be so.
"This entire process is nothing but a conspiracy by Prime Minister Najib Razak to send me into political oblivion by attempting once again to put me behind bars.
"...They can do all they want to sully my reputation and threaten me with... jail. They won't be able to cow me. The truth will prevail," he said.
Some call Anwar a coward for giving an unsworn statement (not subject to cross examination) from the dock.
But for me, Anwar still got the time to quash the allegations... only if he is really innocent. However, it was not right to accuse Najib and his government forming a cahoot to run him down.
What he should concentrate on now is to produce every tangible evidence to beat the prosecution. He is, actually, going against all odds!
