Yusoff takes polygraph test at Bukit Aman

KUALA LUMPUR: Muhammed Yusoff Rawther emerged from Bukit Aman about five hours after he took a polygraph test in the police investigations into his claim of being sexually assaulted by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The former research assistant to the PKR president arrived with his lawyer Datuk Mohamed Haniff Khatri Abdulla at about 3pm yesterday before finally leaving around 8.40pm.

“The test began at 4.30pm and ended around 8.30pm.

“Only Yusoff and the three experts were in the room at the time while myself and the investigating officer waited outside.

“As of now, there is no notice of a second test.

“All the required test was done today,” said Haniff when met outside Bukit Aman.He said his client was “satisfied” with the polygraph test, adding that he did not know when the report would be completed. Haniff had previously said his client was willing to take the test to assist the police in carrying out a fair and thorough investigation.

On whether Anwar would be required to undergo a similar test, the lawyer said it was up to “both the investigation side and the individual himself”.

Police had earlier recorded Yusoff’s statement on Dec 9 and 10, while Anwar had been called in for questioning on Dec 12.Investigators also went to Anwar’s house in Bukit Segambut, where the crime allegedly happened to complete investigations.On Monday, Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed said police had taken statements from eight witnesses so far.

Yusoff had alleged that Anwar outraged his modesty on Oct 2 last year.

He filed a Statutory Declaration (SD) in November this year and subsequently lodged a police report on Dec 7.

The allegation has been denied by Anwar, who claimed he was campaigning in the Port Dickson by-election that day.
