Anwar: judiciary must correct injustice from the past – nation



KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (Pic) wants the judiciary to correct previous injustices of former senior judges.

"If there is any sense of justice and necessity to correct the inherent abuses, the heads of the judiciary must now take the necessary immediate action," the PKR president-elect told reporters after the launch of the book. Anwar Returns: The Final Twist here Sunday (August 26).

Anwar, a former deputy prime minister, said he was not interested in taking action against judges for their decisions in his previous sodomy processes.

Anwar said the problems would come up during his Court of Appeal hearing in September to resume his lawsuit against the government in connection with his sodomy conviction in 2014.

This follows the decision of the High Court of Kuala Lumpur to delete the case after the application from the government.

Anwar filed the original summons on June 9, 2017 and claimed that he had not received a fair trial in the appeal against his sodomy conviction.

Earlier Anwar said in his speech that even the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V noticed that he was being wronged.

"When I met the king, he told me that he gave me a complete pardon – not because he had the power and authority to do so, but because it was his duty to correct injustice," he said.

Anwar, who was forgiven by the King on May 16, reminded the current government not to allow the courts or authorities to abuse their powers for selective prosecution or to deny anyone their rights.

About working with Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, despite their checkered past, Anwar said it was because of the common goal of saving the nation.

"People ask me why I work with Dr. Mahathir.

"It is because I believe in this country and we must have compassion and forgiveness for the right cause to save Malaysia," he said.
