The roadshow is in response to recent joint demonstrations by Umno friendly Malay-right NGOs Perkasa and Gerakan Anti-Penyelewengan Selangor (Gaps) demanding that Anwar surrender a DNA sample to the prosecution in the ongoing sodomy trial.
"It will be called D.N.A. (roadshow), as in Datuk Najib Altantuya," party secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution (left) told a press conference after the weekly Pakatan Rakyat Leadership Council in Parliament today.
"There will be ceramah, distribution of leaflets and explanations to the public to familiarise them with the case. We have all the documents."
Umno's 'evil machinations'
Asked about the NGOs' protest held in front of the PKR headquarters yesterday, Anwar attributed it to Umno's attempt to neutralise him.
He insisted that he is not afraid to submit a DNA sample, but is concerned with the reliability of the methodology being used by the prosecution and police investigations.
"They claim that I am scared to give my DNA. This is (all to do with) their evil political machinations, that they have to hinge upon someone's anus to defend their political power." argued Anwar.
"My investigation officer Tuan Judi told me that the samples were kept in a cabinet, not in a freezer. Now tell me which expert is going to accept such results?"
He cited differences in the dates when the samples were allegedly acquired, which has also gone unexplained by the prosecution.
Anwar then challenged the Umno-linked NGOs, if they are truly sincere, to insist on Najib's DNA sample being submitted in the Altantuya murder investigations.
He also suggested that Information, Communication and Culture Minister Rais Yatim should provide a DNA sample, in relation to allegations that the minister had raped his housemaid.
Both ministers have denied any involvement in these matters.
