On 16 July 2008, Malaysian police arrested Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.
Allegations of sodomy have been levelled against Anwar by a male aide.
"Anwar was in a vehicle approaching his home when the road was blocked by 10 police cars and a contingent of 20 balaclava-clad special forces, who took him to police headquarters." (Malaysian opposition leader Anwar arrested)
"Road blocks were set up and water cannons and helicopters were mobilised around the police station in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, where Mr Anwar was taken after being arrested." (Malaysia braced for riots after sodomy arrest of Anwar Ibrahim)
Acording to an article at http://pemantau.tripod.com/artikel/04Sep-lks.html, Anwar may be an agent of the CIA.
In September 2000, Malaysian politician Lim Kit Siang called on Prime Minister Mahathir to declare the outcome of three years of police investigations as to whether Anwar is a CIA agent and to state whether the United States is the country he meant in a Merdeka Day message as the country out to 'recolonize' Malaysia
Anwar was alleged to have received RM60 million from a Mr Nallakaruppan.
Former Bank Negara assistant governor Datuk Abdul Murad Khalid accused Anwar of having amassed a fortune of RM3 billion while in government through over 20 "Master Accounts".
Reference was made to the American-based organisation called Asia Pacific Policy Centre (APPC) headed by Douglas H. Paal, who was former Senior Director from Asian Affairs (1989 to 1993) of the National Security Council (NSC) of the United States.
MPs used parliamentary immunity to claim in Parliament that Anwar was a CIA agent on the basis that the APPC was a CIA outfit and Douglas Paal a CIA agent.
Oddly, Anwar had allegedly given money to APPC and Douglas Paal.
"The CIA... have complete records of Anwar's visits to gay bars in Washington D.C. and New York whenever he visited the USA." (cia)
Reportedly, Anwar is chairman of the board of the CIA-funded "Foundation for the Future". (BarkingMagpie: Biggest kennel of foreign pet poodles, and Anwar ...)
