Get your own experts, Umno tells Anwar

PUTRAJAYA: Umno information chief Datuk Ahmad Maslan suggested yesterday that opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim bring in his own foreign experts to determine whether the sex video featuring a man resembling him is authentic or has been doctored.
He also proposed that Anwar sue Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah if he wanted to show that the businessman was lying when he took a religious oath that the PKR adviser was the man in the video. "The video has been verified (as authentic) by experts from the United States and South Korea.
"The South Koreans verified it first, followed by the Americans, (meaning that) police have double checked and confirmed that the video is authentic," he told reporters here.
Ahmad also urged police to reveal the identity of the "performer" in the video and charge him in court. He also called for a royal commission of inquiry which he said could clear the confusion caused by allegations made relating to the video.
Police have said that they had identified the "main actor" in the video but declined to name the person.Commenting on plans of the PKR youth wing to gather in front of the Utusan Melayu Berhad office in Kuala Lumpur on Friday to protest what it considered to be unfair reports in Utusan Malaysia, Ahmad said: "They don't seem to understand press freedom. "The demonstration is the work of cowards. "Utusan has a right and a responsibility to give its views on issues that occupy the community. Other newspapers too have their own approach (to issues)."
