No evidence of Saiful’s claims says doctor report

Malaysiakini expands on RPK’s initial article regarding the doctor report that states no evidence of Mohd Saiful’s claims were found.

Malaysiakini went to the government-linked hospital (Pusrawi) to get more feedback, but the person they met took the copy of the medical report. The hospital will be investigating how the report was leaked out since it concern’s a individual’s privacy. Just imagine if the reports says Saiful is HIV positive, for example. It would damage the man’s life forever. Already a suspected rape victim, and now possibly branded a liar.

By the way, the doctor who examined him was a Burmese. Wonder if that has any implications. Oh ya, he’s missing as well. Not sure if he will be found in a foreign country or will be resting in pieces.

Saiful then went to a government hospital as per the first doctor’s report. No report of that is available at this time. However, RPK says that the government hospital report also matches Pusrawi’s report. No evidence found. But let us wait the report comes out.

The report indicates it is a Emergency and Accident Unit visit, since 28th June Saturday afternoon 2pm will be after office hours.

Here’s MK’s article:

There is no evidence that Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan was sodomised, according to the doctor who examined him four hours before he lodged a police report alleging he was sexually assaulted by PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim.

It is believed that Anwar’s former aide Saiful (left) went to two different hospitals on June 28 – the day he lodged the police report claiming that he was sodomised by his ex-boss.

He first went to Hospital Pusrawi (Pusat Rawatan Islam) in Jalan Tun Razak – a government-linked Islamic medical institution – at about 2pm.

According to a copy of the two-page medical report obtained by malaysiakini yesterday, Saiful went to the hospital complaining of ‘tenesmus’ – a medical term for difficulty and pain in passing motion.

He was examined by Dr Mohamed Osman Abdul Hamid, the medical officer on duty.

The doctor said that the patient had alleged he was assaulted by the intrusion of a piece of “plastic” in the anus.

Mohamed Osman, according to his medical report which was recorded at 2.14pm, found “zero active bleeding”, “zero ulcer or pus”, “zero tear and scar” in Saiful’s anus.

He also stated that Saiful appeared “alert”, “comfortable”, “not pale” and did not show any fever symptoms.

A senior Pusrawi official told malaysiakini this morning that the hospital had launched an internal investigation on how Saiful’s medical report was leaked, which is widely considered as a major infringement of patient privacy. When malaysiakini showed him a copy of the report, he refused to return it saying, “It’s our document.”

A check at the emergency unit where Mohamed Osman is attached revealed that he has taken leave since last week.

Meanwhile, Pusrawi general manager Wan Mahmood Wan Yaacob refused to comment on the matter.

Mohamed Osman, in his report’s concluding remarks, advised Saiful to go to a government hospital so as “to rule out” assault and sodomy. At 6pm on that day, Saiful went to Hospital Kuala Lumpur for his second medical examination. He subsequently lodged a report against Anwar at the police beat at the hospital.

According to an expert who has dealt with rape and sodomy cases, the victim must provide a second medical examination in a government hospital.

She said the court will only accept evidence from a government hospital but the first medical examination must collaborate with the second report, otherwise this could be challenged during the trial.

“From the report, the doctor had failed to find any evidence to support the patient’s complaint. That was why he asked the patient to go to a government hospital to conclusively rule out assault or sodomy,” said the expert who requested anonymity.

It is learnt that the police have recorded statements from Mohamed Osman after Saiful lodged the report against Anwar.

The doctor was said to be under tremendous stress as a result of the police interrogation and was advised by the hospital to take leave.

Mohamed Osman, a Burmese Muslim, has 20 years of experience as a doctor. He previously worked in government hospitals before joining Pusrawi about a year ago.

Efforts by malaysiakini to contact Saiful has not been successful.

    Are u nuts ???

    Coming back to this idiotic story about the doctor, Mkini is being irresponsible in their reporting. I am puzzled with Mkini why they have to do way with basic journalistic ethics in this case.

    First of all, there is no evidence other than what was published by RPK. Mkini has to verify the authocity of the document even before they can talk to the hospital. If they cannot verify it then they should publish the story as something that being claimed by RPK rather than reporting it as though they got the confirmation from the doctor.

    From what I heard is there is no such doctor with the hospital and that the hospital suspect the medical report have been forged / faked. So this is under investigation.

    However Mkini somehow deemed to report the matter as though the statement was made by the doctor. This is an irresponsible and unethical piece of reportage. I am not saying that mkini should report but present the story as an accusation by RPK. By reporting the story in such way, the are gonna get sued by the hospital.

    If you read some of the blogs, many people already started to question the details of the report.

    I believe what MK reported on Saiful not being sodomised. U know why?
    Non of the local MSM reported can be trusted because the country is now being runned by a bunch of clowns who cannot be trusted in the very first place. These clowns control all the MSMs.

    1. Anwar commit Sodomy? He can’t because you have to ask the wife.

    2. Najib really did not know Altantuya cos he is also not a sodomizer. He likes it straight. Ask his sleeping partner.

    3. It’s the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so said by every accused in any court of any land. Do you not believe in men when they swear in the name of God, Allah, Yahweh etc?

    Ask all malay (edited) go back to Indonesia.The malay (edited) make Malaysia become rubbish country. Without malay (edited) in Malaysia – Malaysia country will become same as Singapore or Taiwan.Where malay (edited) came from? Indonesia? Arab? Africa? What happened to our Orang Asli? They are the original settlers here, they should be the true real bumiputras. Not the (edited)putras we have here.What is wrong with the (edited)putras? Highest crime rates, highest divorce rates, highest number of criminals, highest number of drug users, highest number of rapists. A genetically flawed race ((edited)putras) cannot be fixed by politically. What have we got now? Brain drain, economic disparity getting wider, poor education system, racial segregation, widespread corruption, inefficiency and uncompetitive on the government departments and others.Sad. Sad. Sad. The question asked by many of my fellow Chinese is this – Why can’t you just tell the malay (edited) to adopt Chinese culture which is superior?It makes no difference whether I am a Chinese, Indian or for that matter, anyone else, even a Mat Salleh. I am speaking as a human being to a malay (edited) like you.If you malay (edited) don’t like the non-malays here, then go back to Sumatra, Jawa, or wherever your ancestors came from, and give this land back to its rightful master, the Orang Asli.If Malaysia is to divide into two countries with malay (edited) taking the east, and the west to the Chinese and the Indians – watch that the malay (edited) starting to migrate to the west illegally for a better future. It is no wonder Singapore is a country which is 50 years ahead of Malaysia. You know something – once outside the perimeters of Malaysia, these malay (edited) are so small in value even a dog has more value than them!Everything in Malaysia is a joke when it comes to the malay (edited). They are laughed at by everyone in this world for being incompetent, lazy, useless morons. From research, this peninsular was part of the Siamese empire way before these malay (edited) from Indonesia invaded it.Still so thick skin, don’t want to go back to Indonesia.
