Sodomy 2: Seems that the identity of male Y has been revealed

Based on local news report and despite the interesting method adopted by the Police and the Prosecution team to obtain the source of the DNA of male Y, I think we can safely envisage that the DNA of Male Y is the same as the DNA of samples taken from the lock up cell occupied by Anwar Ibrahim.

Sodomy II: Focus on admissibility of items with 'Male Y' DNA (Updated)

The four exhibits are crucial to the trial as they contained the DNA of 'Male Y', an unknown person whose semen was found inside the anus of complainant Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
Justice Datuk Mohd Zabidin Mohd Diah set the date to allow the prosecution and defence to make their respective submissions.
Mohd Zabidin postponed the trial Tuesday after defence counsel Karpal Singh objected to deputy public prosecutor Nordin Hassan's application to mark the four exhibits - a towel, toothbrush, mineral bottle and strand of hair.
Karpal said the defence was objecting to the application on the ground that the samples were obtained by police through unfair method.
"Police had obtained the samples by unfair method and we are asking this court to exercise its discretionary power to exclude such exhibits and expunge the entire evidence of these exhibits," said Karpal.
Solicitor-General II Datuk Mohamed Yusof Zainal Abiden objected to the application and asked the defence to explain what they meant by "unfair method".
"They (defence) have to show what unfair method was used. I will rule on this (trial-within-a-trial) matter after hearing their argument," said Mohamed Zabidin.
The issue was raised following the testimony by former head of Cheras police forensic lab Supt Hamidon Adnan that he removed the four exhibits (hair, bottle, towel and toothbrush) from the cell on July 17, 2008 on the request of the investigation officer DSP Judy Blacious Pereira. - Bernama
LISA GOH reported earlier Tuesday that the court was told a white toothbrush, Good Morning towel and Cactus mineral water bottle were taken from the lock-up cell at the police headquarters here, where Anwar in July 2008.
The court was also told that those items were later handed over to the Chemistry Department for DNA profiling.
Last week, chemist Nor Aidora Saedon had told the court that her analysis of those items found a DNA profile which matched that of Male Y, an unknownperson whose semen was found inside the anus of complainant Mohd Saiful.
On Tuesday, Kuala Lumpur Serious Crime Unit (D9) officer DSP Yahya Abdul Rahman testified that a towel, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a bar of soap had been handed over to Anwar on July 16, 2008, as it was the government standard issue for persons held in a lock-up.
During his examination-in-chief by deputy public prosecutor Datuk Nordin Hassan, DSP Yahya also told the court that he and investigating officer DSP Jude Blacious Pereira had escorted Anwar to the lock-up from a meeting room at the D9 unit.
DSP Yahya also said he did not give Anwar the mineral water bottle, but he had allowed Anwar to bring it into his cell.
When asked if there was anyone else who was also arrested in the lock-up cell while Anwar was there between July 16 and 17, 2008, he replied: "No."
Another witness, L/Kpl Mohd Azry Mohd Toyab, who was the lock-up's sentry guard, testified that on the morning of July 17, 2008, he had heard a sound which sounded like Anwar brushing his teeth in the cell.
He said Anwar was then brought out of his cell at 8.10am, and he received an order to "not touch the things belonging to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim".
Anwar, 63, is charged with performing carnal intercourse against the order of nature on Mohd Saiful at a condominium unit in Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, between 3.15pm and 4pm on June 26, 2008.

I must say that the method employed by the Police on the unsuspecting Anwar Ibrahim is simply brilliant.
