Anwar called up to Bukit Aman over viral audio clip

KUALA LUMPUR: Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been called up to have his statement recorded by Bukit Aman.

Lawyer Datuk Sankara N. Nair confirmed that he would be accompanying his client on Tuesday (April 27) morning.

"We are expected to be there by 10am," he said when contacted.

When asked, Sankara said he presumed Anwar was being called up due to the ongoing investigation into a viral audio clip allegedly of a telephone call between Anwar and Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

It was reported that police would record the statements of Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in connection

with a leaked audio clip that purportedly contains a conversation between them.

On Apr 7, an audio clip of a conversation between two voices sounding like Ahmad Zahid and Anwar went viral, discussing the performance of the former at the recent Umno annual general meeting.

It was also mentioned in the conversation that there is a need to hold an extraordinary Umno supreme council meeting to give the president the mandate to make the decision to leave the Perikatan Nasional government.
