Namun, Anwar menegaskan suruhanjaya itu juga perlu ditubuhkan untuk menyiasat skandal yang membabitkan pemimpin tertinggi negara di Port Dickson sekitar tahun 1990-an, skandal yang membabitkan pembunuhan warga Mongolia Altantuya Shariibuu serta kematian pegawai kastam semalam, selain kes Teoh Beng Hock yang sedang dijalankan sekarang.
“Biarkan sahaja mereka tubuhkan suruhanjaya tetapi (dengan syarat) suruhanjaya Beng Hock, Port Dickson, skandal yang mengaitkan pembunuhan Altantuya, serta kematian pegawai kastam semalam juga perlu ada,” ujarnya ringkas kepada pemberita di sini hari ini.
Beliau berkata demikian selepas hadir memberi ucapan penggulungan dalam majlis Taklimat Maqasid Syariah Pembangunan Ekonomi Selangor di Dewan Jubli Perak di sini petang ini.
Turut hadir dalam majlis tersebut Menteri Besar Selangor Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim serta Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri Datuk Mohammed Khusrin Munawi.
Semalam Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz berkata cadangan untuk menubuhkan Suruhanjaya Diraja bagi menyiasat rakaman video seks melibatkan pelaku mirip Anwar akan dikemukakan kepada Kabinet esok.
Nazri berkata penubuhan suruhanjaya itu perlu disegerakan berikutan penafian isteri Anwar yang juga Presiden Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail kelmarin yang suaminya itu adalah lelaki dalam video berkenaan.
The Kulim Bandar Baru MP and former PKR member said this would enable them to see if the man in the 21-minute video was really Anwar.
“The attorney-general and inspector-general of police should give permission for the full video to be shown to the leadership and a few members of Pakatan Rakyat,” he told reporters at the Parliament lobby here today.
He added that the video screening should be done at a “closed-door meeting”.
Zulkifli said that a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) would not be needed if Pakatan leaders believed that the person in the video was Anwar.
“If they don’t, then the government needs to push for an RCI. It will be best if they (Pakatan leaders) could see it (the video) in full.
“Let them analyse the video. If they watch the video with an open mind, they will come out crying,” he added.
However, the firebrand MP stopped short of saying that the man in the video was Anwar. “I didn’t say that (it was him).”
The Omega watch
The Konsensus Bebas MP also took a swipe at Anwar ‘s wife, Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, accusing her of being “irresponsible” in her position as PKR president.
“I don’t blame her. She has chosen loyalty over truth. That is her right as a wife and I cannot stop her from doing that,” he said, referring to her denial that it was Anwar in the video.
However, Zulkifli said that Wan Azizah owed it to PKR members to tell them the truth, and raised a question over Anwar’s Omega wristwatch.
During the release of the sex tape, whistleblower Shahzryl Eskay Abdullah said that he was holding Anwar’s watch. At the time, he said that Anwar left it behind after allegedly having sex.
Earlier this week, Wan Azizah admitted to holding the watch, although she refused to show it to reporters.
Challenging this claim, Zulkifli asked if she really had the watch. “If I were her, I would have shown the watch to reporters (asking for the watch). But she did no such thing,” he said.
He also said that if Wan Azizah really wanted to “redeem her family’s honour”, she would have advised her husband to hand over his DNA sample and the affected watch to the police.
“Why didn’t she do this? This is the best way to clear her family’s name,” he said.
