Saiful: I want truth told

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's accuser, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, is relieved that his complaint is finally being taken to court.

The 23-year-old, who had been in protective custody since he lodged the police report against his former boss in late June, had earlier also accused Anwar of delaying police investigations.

Yesterday, in a statement faxed by his lawyer Zamri Idrus, Mohd Saiful said he would give his full cooperation during the trial.

He also called on Malaysians to pray that the court process would proceed smoothly and that the truth would be revealed.

Zamri, when contacted at his Johor Baru office, said his client had conveyed the message to him after being notified that Anwar had been summoned to court.

Zamri said he would be present at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court here today to hold a watching brief on behalf of his client. He, however, could not say if Mohd Saiful would be present in court.
