Lee Kuan Yew: Anwar’s sodomy charges were a set-up

13Dec10

More uncensored comments by Lee Kuan Yew released on WikiLeaks, with his opinions on the Anwar Ibrahim trial and Malaysian politics making the largest waves.  Sydney Morning Herald:

The cable that deals with Dr Anwar’s sodomy case, dated November 2008 and released exclusively to The Sun-Herald by WikiLeaks, states: ”The Australians said that Singapore’s intelligences services and [Singaporean elder statesman] Lee Kuan Yew have told ONA in their exchanges that opposition leader Anwar ‘did indeed commit the acts for which he is currently indicted’.”

The document states the Singaporeans told ONA they made this assessment on the basis of ”technical intelligence”, which is likely to relate to intercepted communications.

The ONA is also recorded as saying that Dr Anwar’s political enemies engineered the circumstances from which the sodomy charges arose.

”ONA assessed, and their Singapore counterparts concurred, ‘it was a set-up job and he probably knew that, but walked into it anyway’,” the cable states. …

The cable is one of several that deals with the highly explosive private views of senior Singaporean officials, including claims that:

>Malaysia is in a ”confused and dangerous” state due to its incompetent politicians;

>Thailand’s political elite are dogged by ”corruption” and the country’s crown prince is ”very erratic and easily subject to influence”;

>Japan and India were struggling to deal with China’s influence due to their ”stupid” behaviour;

> and some Asian leaders wanted the junta to retain power in Burma to ensure the country’s stability.

No sign of the entire cable yet.

    I hope the author of this website can do us readers a favour by setting our minds to topics that are more constructive, instead of making us ponder over selected, out-of-context transcriptions. We all know these transcriptions (personal or corporate objectives unclear) were made after the alleged conversation (if there ever was any), which depended on the memory of the officer (probably intoxicated during conversation).
    Any logical person having read these articles would know that it can and will affect international diplomatic relationships negatively, so why are you still publishing it?
    I think you have a good thing going at this portal, but please help out to make this world a better place.
    God Bless

    @ LFY

    The real world today still relies on paper & ink as the only internationally accepted medium for writing contracts. One of the reasons for not doing it online is that web contents can and are all too frequently doctored, for all that matters, the respondent could just be the web owner justifying his publication.

    I am certain none of us has ever seen the original transcription and the cable leaks were copied onto a digital storage device. How much more objective can I get when the integrity of these leaks is so subjective.

    I can appreciate the web owner’s desire to keep us in the know by publishing the WikiLeaks but should let us the readers decide how we want to react. I do not see any difference between ST fairy tale propaganda and owner’s passive mind conditioning effort.

    But God still loves all of us and by His grace, I love all our neighbours that includes Malaysia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, India & North Korea too.

    Have a Joyous Christmas and a Merry New Year.

    To Whom It May Concern
    I concur, did Lee say anything wrong? And I wonder what motives are lurking behind the vulgar rant?
    Readers, be cautious.
