Anwar Once Demanded Gambling Licence In Sabah, Says Najib

BUKIT MERTAJAM, Aug 20 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, when he was Deputy Prime Minister once slammed the table and threw files to demand the Sabah government approve a licence for a four-digit lottery to a company he had an interest in, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The Deputy Prime Minister said the incident happened when Datuk Yong Teck Lee was Chief Minister of Sabah.
"He (Anwar) wanted the licence because his elder brother was the chairman of the company concerned," Najib said when campaigning for the Barisan Nasional in the run up to the Permatang Pauh by-election in Simpang Empat, Seberang Jaya here Wednesday night.
Yong Teck Lee was appointed Chief Minister of Sabah from 1996 to May 1998 while Anwar was deputy prime minister from 1993 until he was sacked from Umno in September 1998.
Najib said he was proud of the action of the Sabah government in upholding its principles to deny the unprincipled Anwar the licence.
"Now he is talking about forming a society of high moral values but before, demanded for a gambling licence to be approved," he said.
Earlier, at another function in Seberang Perai Tengah, Najib announced special allocations amounting to RM100,000 for each mosque and RM30,000 for each surau in the parliamentary constituency.
He also urged Muslims to remind united so that the community continued to remain strong.
The by-election on Aug 26 will see a three cornered fight between Anwar, who is now advisor of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), the BN's Arif Shah Omar Shad and Hanafi Mamat of Angkatan Keadilan Islam Malaysia (Akim).

I'm not suprised if Anwar challenge Najib to provide evidence on his allegation.I am not suprise as well if Anwar make no comment about this or justify his action regarding the gambling licence.

Illegal gambling dens should be discriminated and should not be given a license to operate.

Did you notice (over the box) when somebody was on a walk-about via the 'komuter' & 'LRT' today, those he talked to were 'SYT'...hmmmmmmm

Hope he was not distracted from the original objective BUT it will definately keep him awake :)

Well this is a typical Anwar stunt.
Never before he has one stand which he keeps same as what he 'preached' 7 years..or maybe even 2 days ago.
A true 'lalang' by nature.

ANWAR, a muslim himself demanded a gambling licence in Sabah? Even put his brother as a director in the gambling company? So they receive HARAM money? No wonder he dare not to swear like Saiful did.

there must be something wrong with logic and politics they do not really carry weight. the more they condemn anwar, the more support he gets. the less they talk about anwar, also the more he gets the support. i was in permatang pauh again yesterday. BN just could not convince the electorate with all their strategies. out of 10 i asked, almost 9 gave their thumbs down to BN's rhetoric. khairy has made it worse. umno should pull him out of this arena. but again, the others in umno and BN are also not doing good. in politics, perception matters the most. that's the whole problem.

According to Nalla,a friend of anwar for 30 years, and went for jail for anwar said something very interesting;

How come we Malaysians are so blind and mesmerised by Anwar's words even though he is an hypocrite..
