To Charge Or Not To Charge?

To Charge Or Not To Charge?
31 July, 2008

I assume that the whole world is aware of the medical report. According to the report, there is no evidence that Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan had been sodomised.

It should be a relief to his family, particularly his beautiful wife.

The police and the hospital did not say whether the report was genuine. Just like the whole family of the private detective, the doctor has disappeared.

How strange it is as both the key figures of the two sensitive issues have mysteriously disappeared? This reminded me of a drama, X-files. Any human who has seen aliens would disappear. Could it be aliens are actually very interested in Malaysian cases and picked them up with an UFO?

I sincerely hope that they are safe regardless whether they have been borrowed by aliens for human studies or they have gone to an unknown destination for a long vacation. Of course, I do hope that they can show up when they are needed to give testimony and reveal the truth.

We wonder why the police did not mention about the medical report as they already knew it earlier?

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said that the exposure of the medical report was intended to confuse the public. In fact, he does not have to worry as the people will only get the clearer picture when they access to more information. Moreover, it will be good if the medical report can help in clarifying the sodomy case.

If that is the case, would it be the time to make a decision – to charge or not to charge?

Even Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar said that the police should make the decision as soon as possible.

If they have substantial evidence, then just charge him. Otherwise, just put an end to the case. Only more suspicions will be created if they keep delaying it. After all, the country's international image and the people's perceptions should be take into account. (By TAY TIAN YAN/ Translated by SOONG PHUI JEE/ Sin Chew Daily)
