Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, who accused Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim of sodomising him, has expressed his disappointment with the delay of the trial as he made a rare public appearance today reported Malaysiakini on Thursday.

Speaking to reporters, Saiful said that he would not comment further on the defamatory comments made against him in the two months that he went on a “hiatus”.

“I wish to clarify that I am physically fit and healthy as you can see and am not bedridden or ill as claimed by some parties in their blogs and I certainly do not have STD,” he told reporters.

He said this in response to claims on certain blogs and e-mail messages that he now faced a streak of bad luck after swearing on the Quran that he had been sodomised by Anwar.
