Anwar loses final appeal

  • Anwar loses his final appeal against his sodomy conviction and will continue to serve his full 5-year sentence at Sungai Buloh prison until mid-2018 earliest.

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 14 (MySinchew) -- The Federal Court today turned down the final appeal by former opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim against his sodomy conviction.

This means Anwar will continue to serve his full 5-year sentence at Sungai Buloh prison until mid-2018 earliest.

Insisting his innocence, Anwar said the verdict today did not mean the end of the road for him.

He also said he would not consider seeking royal pardon from the King for the time being, and that his legal team would announce their next course of action very soon.
