Sodomy II updates


A couple of interesting updates this afternoon from the Sodomy II trial.

Courtesy of Malaysian Insider:

… Dr David Wells reads out excerpt of report.

Wells says in his experience he has never heard of semen being extracted 56 hours later from a victim’s body…

Sankara: If semen in rectum 56 hours before extracted, can DNA be retrieved?

Wells: If more than 24-36 hours before extracted, would be difficult to get any results. I’d be surprised.

Wells: I must admit aspects of proforma etc does not leave me with a lot of confidence those involved knew what they were doing.

I wonder who this moron of a DPP is calling unqualified.

Apologies galore. Wong must be sleeping whilst on the beat. It’s the second time the Star has had to apologize in a week: Note how this has been pointed out: On Monday, Anwar, who was ordered by the court to enter his defence, gave his unsworn statement from the dock – meaning the prosecution would not be able to cross-examine him. Furthermore: He took more than an hour to read out his 32-page statement that day. Guess that was a wasted effort, especially when Anwar explained why he was taking this course of action.
