Malaysian prosecutors appeal Anwar sodomy acquittal

Malaysian prosecutors on Friday filed a notice of appeal against the acquittal of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim (above) on sodomy charges. -- PHOTO: THE STAR KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - Malaysian prosecutors on Friday filed a notice of appeal against the acquittal of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim on sodomy charges. Mr Anwar was cleared earlier this month of charges he had sex with a young male former aide, ending a long-running trial that shook the conservative Muslim-majority country. He had slammed the allegations as politically motivated, concocted by Prime Minister Najib Razak's government to stifle his resurgent opposition. Mr Anwar's lawyer Sankara Nair said he had not yet received the notice of appeal. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
