PETALING JAYA - Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak were not involved in Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's second sodomy case, said Tan Sri Musa Hassan.

The former Inspector-General of Police said that neither the current nor the former prime minister was involved in the case that put the de facto opposition leader behind bars.

"Mahathir had nothing to do with it. He was not even called by the police," he said at a press conference in Shah Village hotel here Wednesday.

He added that Najib, who was deputy prime minister when Anwar was charged in 2008, also had nothing to do with the case.

Musa was denying claims by Raja Petra Kamarudin in his blog post that he and then Attorney-General Tan Sri Gani Patail had helped him "fix up" Anwar on trumped up sodomy charges.

"This is slander and there has never been any evidence that there was a conspiracy," he said.

Musa gave Raja Petra 14 days to retract his article and all other posts containing false allegations or he will lodge a police report against him and sue him for defamation.
