MOHD Yusoff Rawther, the former researcher for PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim turned sexual assault accuser, today called for the Attorney General’s Chambers to clarify a statement that investigations had lacked material evidence in rejecting further action last week.

Yusoff had in December lodged a police report following his statutory declaration detailing the alleged incident that took place in Anwar’s home in Segambut in 2018.

Subsequently a probe by the Classified Criminal Investigation Unit (D5) under Section 354 of the Penal Code for use of criminal force to outrage a person’s modesty, commenced.

Police had recorded statements from Yusoff, who also undertook a polygraph test, before also questioning Anwar and followed-up with investigations at his home.

Yusoff had caused a stir when his statutory declaration was made public just days prior to the PKR annual congress in Malacca, raising accusations of another instance of gutter politics by those seeking to undermine Anwar.

Haniff Khatri Abdulla, Yusoff’s lawyer, said he had yesterday written officially to the AGC, seeking clarification on the matter and a meeting with Engku Nor Faizah.

In his opening address, however, Yusoff stated he was satisfied with the police investigations and that he took the polygraph test to strengthen his case against Anwar, who has stated he was filing a civil suit for defamation against Yusoff.

“Anwar wants to sue me? Bring it on,” said Yusoff.

His grouses seem to be only with the AGC, stating he was “terribly disappointed” with the outcome and will pursue the matter “all the way”.
