Is Singapore providing Anwar intel?
I am guessing here that it's Singapore. I mean, it could be Brunei for all you know.
Do read YB Zulkifi Noodin's posting here and tell me just what am I supposed to think. Because I think the YB, DSAI and PKR should tell us everything.The PKR MP went on to list down FIVE attempts at DSAI's life since the 1990s. "... sebab itulah kami membuat keputusan menasihatkan DSAI menerima tawaran Kedutaan Turki untuk melindungi DSAI". (... that's why we made the decision to advise DSAI to accept the Turkish Embassy's offer to provide him refuge)."Kami menerima maklumat daripada beberapa sumber termasuk dari Unit Perisikan sebuah negara jiran yang memaklumkan kepada kami ada cubaan untuk membunuh DSAI di mana beberapa orang pembunuh upahan (hired killer) telah dibawa masuk baru-baru ini." - Zulkifili Nordin, 30/6/2008
(We received information from a number of sources, including from the Intelligence Unit from a neighboring country informing us that there is an attempt to assassinate DSAI and that several hired killers have been brought into the country recently).
The Turkish Embassy, however, has said there was no such offer made to Anwar.

Anwar Was Not Invited But Sought Refuge Citing Personal Security Concerns, Says Turkish Embassy
KUALA LUMPUR, June 30 (Bernama) -- The Turkish Embassy clarified Monday Parti Keadilan Rakyat de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was allowed into the ambassador's residence on humanitarian grounds.
It said the former deputy prime minister cited personal security concerns to seek refuge at the envoy's residence on Sunday for a temporary period until certain issues regarding his personal safety were addressed.
"Anwar's wish was granted on humanitarian grounds," it said in a statement.
The statement also said that at no time and under no circumstances Anwar was invited to seek protection at the embassy.
It said Anwar left the ambassador's residence at 6.45pm after been given the guarantee for his personal safety by Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim and Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar. Anwar claimed yesterday he was invited by Turkish ambassador to Malaysia Barlas Ozener to take refuge at the embassy.
Anwar took refuge at the Turkish Embassy here yesterday after a 23-year-old aide lodged a police report on Saturday alleging that Anwar had sodomised him on Thursday.
The PKR adviser claimed he had information from government sources and military intelligence that BN agents planned to harm or probably kill him and harm his family members and supporters.
