Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was released on police bail Thursday morning after having his statement recorded the night before, the Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said.
He was safely back at his home in Bukit Segambut in Kuala Lumpur by 10.05am.
Anwar's statement was taken down to facilitate police investigations into the report lodged on June 28 by his 23-year-old former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan alleging he had been sodomised by the PKR de facto leader.
Kudos to the authorities for finally getting their act together despite having started the whole affair on the wrong footing, balaclavas et al. Now let the law takes its course.
