Deputy Housing and Local Government Minister Hamzah Zainuddin accused Anwar of making a move on his wife.
I wonder if Hamzah would also go to the Federal territory Imam to swear.
Hamzah had been quoted in the Kwong Wah Jit Poh newspaper as saying that Anwar had in 1998 tried to take advantage of his wife even though they were best of friends then.
He told the newspaper that Anwar had "kacau" his wife.
In view of this, the deputy minister told the daily that the people of Permatang Pauh should not vote for the opposition leader.
According to Anwar's lawyer, Hamzah's words have "(1) directly and/or indirectly and/or by innuendo, given an impression and the perception that Anwar is engaged in illicit sexual activities and/or habitually engages in similar activities, (2) is a man of low morals; (3) is a man of no Islamic values and (4) is of bad character."
Anwar has demanded an apology from Hamzah or face a RM10 million lawsuit.
Hamzah, who is former state agency Felcra chief, was embroiled in a sensational divorce settlement in 2004 where he was ordered by the Perak Syariah Court to pay his ex-wife, Nooraini Abdul Rashid, a whopping RM11.2 million in cash and assets.
The judge also ordered Hamzah to transfer one-third of his 63 million shares to Nooraini or pay her RM10 million.
Nooraini brought the suit after Hamzah divorced her in 1996. Hamzah has since re-married and it was his new wife who was allegedly harrassed by Anwar.
