KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 17 (Bernama) — Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has appointed foreign DNA and forensic experts for the defence team to debunk the prosecution’s claim of DNA analysis in his sodomy trial.

His lawyer Sankara Nair said the PKR leader had engaged the services of DNA expert Dr Brian Leslie McDonald from Sydney, Australia, and two forensic experts Prof Dr C. Damodaran from Chennai, India and Associate Professor David Lawrence Noel Wells from Melbourne, Australia.

In a statement e-mailed to the media Wednesday, Nair said he would be bringing the experts to the Kuala Lumpur High Court at 9am, Thursday.

On Thursday, High Court Judge Datuk Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah is scheduled to deliver his decision on Anwar’s application for the judge to recuse himself from hearing the case.

Last week, Anwar applied to recuse Justice Mohamad Zabidin on the grounds that his two rulings concerning news reports of the case had raised an element of bias.

Attached together in the statement were their curriculum vitae.
