AN aide to a PKR official has lodged a police report saying that his life was in danger following a letter he wrote to the PAS president revealing his “close relationship” with Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Mingguan Malaysia reported.

Mohd Fareez Kamal Intidzam said he also expressed in the letter his view that PKR deputy president Azmin Ali was more suited to lead the party instead of party president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

Fareez, who is the political secretary to Ampang MP and Wanita PKR chief Zuraida Kamaruddin, said the contents of his letter to Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang had angered Wan Azizah and her followers.

“As I stated in the letter, Wan Azizah is very jealous about my close relationship with Anwar,” Fareez said after lodging the report at the Dang Wangi police station in Kuala Lumpur.

Fareez said that as a result of the letter, he had been followed by a group of people since Thursday and they even tracked him to a hotel room.

“I believe those hunting me are supporters and maybe even henchmen of the president.

“So, the issue today is that I want to ensure the safety of my family and myself.”

> MEN who marry women who bring home more money were prone to have a lower sex drive or become impotent, reported Kosmo! Ahad in its Jurnal section.

Quoting researchers from Denmark and the United States, the article said they studied over 200,000 couples and found sex stimulant pills to address the problem of impotency were mostly favoured by men whose wives had higher earnings than them.

Washington University Professor Lamar Pierce, who led the studies, said 10% more men with high-earning wives took sex stimulants.

He said the “phenomenon”, however, was not so much about salaries than the women taking over the traditional male role in the family, which impacted the man's self-esteem.

“A man's sex drive is associated with masculine culture, like paternal superiority, money and social network.”
