Sivarasa berkata kemalangan itu berlaku sewaktu Anwar dipindahkan dari Hospital Kuala Lumpur ke Penjara Sungai Buloh selepas menjalani rawatan selama empat hari.
Bagaimanapun ketua umum PKR itu tidak mengalami sebarang kecederaan serius akibat kemalangan itu, kata Sivarasa.
Menurutnya, kemalangan tersebut berlaku pada jam 12.30 tengah hari di persimpangan trafik berdekatan Saujana Utama, Sungai Buloh apabila pegawai penjara yang memandu kenderaan dinaiki Anwar menekan brek mengejut bagi mengelak kenderaan dari arah bertentangan.
"Kereta pengiring telah melanggar kereta di hadapan dan kereta yang membawa Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim telah mengalami kerosakan di bahagian belakang kereta," katanya dalam satu kenyataan media.
Sivarasa berkata, Anwar agak terkejut dengan kejadian berkenaan dan diberi ubat tahan sakit ketika dirawat doktor di Penjara Sungai Buloh.
Selasa lalu, Anwar dikejarkan ke HKL akibat masalah tekanan darah kurang stabil.
Beliau diletakkan dalam pemantauan doktor dan turut menjalani rawatan fisioterapi intensif akibat kecederaan lama di bahu.
Sementara itu, Sivarasa berkata, Timbalan Pengarah Kementerian Kesihatan, Datuk Dr Jeyaindran Tan Sri Sinnathurai dijadual bertemu Anwar pada jam 5 petang ini.
Ia katanya, bagi menetapkan sama ada Anwar memerlukan sebarang rawatan lanjut di hospital.
Anwar 'shaken up' in accident...
PKR de facto leader was left "shaken up" following an accident when a prison's department vehicle convoy was involved in an accident.
According to his lawyer R Sivarasa, the accident took place at 12.30pm near Saujana Utama, Sungai Buloh en route to the Sungai Buloh prison from the Kuala Lumpur general hospital.
The vehicle which Anwar was travelling in was struck from behind by an escort vehicle.
"The prison officer driving the car carrying Anwar had to brake sharply to avoid an oncoming vehicle (resulting in a collision with) the escort car (trailing) behind," said Sivarasa in a statement today.
He said Anwar did not suffer any serious physical injuries but was administered painkillers after being examined by prison medical staff.
The lawyer added that Health Ministry deputy director-general Dr S Jeyaindran was scheduled to visit Anwar this evening to assess if further treatment was required.
Anwar was admitted on Sept 19 due to unstable blood pressure. - mk
Banning Dr.M from entering Sarawak,
will be joke of the year...
“There is absolutely no reason for the state Barisan Nasional to ban Dr Mahathir, Kit Siang and Dr Hatta from entering Sarawak,” said state PH chief Chong Chieng Jen.
Dr Mahathir, the country's longest serving prime minister and now an arch-enemy of Prime Minister Najib Razak, is PH chairman, while DAP supremo Lim is deputy president.
There has yet to be any indication that the PH leaders would be barred from entering the state for Sunday's cermah.
Chong, however, appealed to the Sarawak government not to abuse its immigration powers by banning Dr Mahathir.
“If Dr Mahathir is banned from entering Sarawak, it would be the ultimate joke of the year in the state, equal to Najib’s 'Malaysia is strengthening the US economy' remark.
“I urge (Chief Minister) Abang Johari Openg (pix,below) not to emulate Najib in bringing shame to Sarawakians.”
The Bandar Kuching MP and state DAP chairman said an individual could be selectively banned from entering Sarawak “merely because he has quit BN and now subscribes to a different political belief, which is legitimate in Malaysia and Sarawak”.
“The basic principle of democracy dictates that the people have a say in choosing the government.
“That is the whole purpose of having regular elections, for the people to make their choice.
“For the people to make wise and considered choices, political parties must be allowed to freely propagate their ideas and policies.”
He said to bar leaders of legitimate parties from entering Sarawak because they were not from BN was not only an abuse of power by the government, but also a clear travesty of democracy.
Though Sarawak, in the past, had routinely denied entry to opposition leaders from the peninsula, the current administration under Abang Johari had, as recently as last month, permitted PKR's top two women leaders, Nurul Izzah Anwar and Zuraida Kamaruddin, who had been “blacklisted”, into the state to attend the party's open house in Petra Jaya.
PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah had been barred from entering the state as recently as December 2015, while Zuraida, the PKR women's wing chief, was barred entry on January 30 last year.
Sarawak has autonomy over immigration matters under the Malaysia Agreement 1963. Abang Johari's predecessor, the late Adenan Satem, had frequently used this to bar entry to people he deemed to be “religious bigots, racists and troublemakers”.
Adenan had a strong aversion to politicians from the peninsula who stoked racial or religious tensions.
Among those who had been barred from entering the state are PKR MPs Tian Chua and Rafizi Ramli, former MP and PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, and Subang MP R. Sivarasa.
Civil society activists who had been barred include former Bersih 2.0 chairman S. Ambiga, Steven Ng, Cynthia Gabriel, Wong Chin Huat and Johan Tan.
Political firebrands like Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Md Yunos and a man Adenan considered to be a religious bigot, Perkasa's Ibrahim Ali, too, were considered persona non grata.
Adenan had defended his immigration ban, saying he was safeguarding state harmony. – themalaysianinsight
