After the splendid showing where Anwar Ibrahim trounced the Minister of Information (who promised to resign if he did badly, BTW), now the dastardly news.

Anwar was arrested when he exited his house enroute to IPK  was near his house at Bukit Segambut when returning from his interview with the Anti Corruption Agency before heading to IPK Kuala Lumpur.

According to Chegubard who was with him, his car was surrounded by a group of Special Taskforce Police (Unit Tindakan Khas – UTK, the same guys who smashed his house in 1998) wearing masks. They took him into a black-tinted car and drove off.

Anwar’s arrest was well ahead of his deadline of 2.00 pm meeting time to give his witness statement.

According to his lawyer, he is being taken to the now infamous Brickfields Police Station. the Kuala Lumpur Police HQ (IPK KL).
