Rais Yatim says: "It proves the government does not hold sway over judges' decision"
Anwar is acquitted.
However, if we are to pick a winner, its not Anwar or Saiful. Its the judiciary. For all the accusation that our judiciary is bias and inclines more towards the government, the system stood for itself.
And for all the melodrama and allegations that the government was behind the conspiracy to 'kill' Anwar politically, its proven that it has nothing to do with it.
Anwar's supporters - after the High Court passed its verdict this morning - were not only jubilant but were mocking Najib and his Cabinet for being a bunch of coward and scared to send back Anwar to jail.
"Najib penakut! Dia yang suruh mahkamah bebaskan Anwar!" is among what chanted outside the court after the judgement.
Now what? Had the court finds Anwar guilty, they will still hang on to their 'conspiracy' theory. But as Anwar walks a free man, they became more obsessed to badmouth the government.
Its the day of Malaysian judiciary, not Anwar's!
Anyway, tahniah to Anwar...
