Anwar walks out a free man

May 16, 2018

Welcome ‘home’ DSAI and God bless you

* Anwar is free!
Anwar is free! Palace grants full pardon
* Nurul Izzah: My father’s freedom will be the ‘sweetest gift’ for Ramadan
* Anwar: Working with Dr M was crucial to topple BN
* Malaysia’s Man of the Hour
* 50 years in the life of Anwar Ibrahim  

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim

Remember, without Tun Dr Mahathir leading Pakatan Harapan to victory, this day would not have happened for DSAI


KUALA LUMPUR: Anwar Ibrahim has walked out a free man, exactly 1,557 days since he was sentenced to jail on a charge of sodomy.

But unlike his previous release from prison in 2003, Anwar today walks out amid intense attention from the mainstream media, just days after the historic win in the May 9 polls by Pakatan Harapan, an alliance between his partners in the former opposition and his mentor-turned-nemesis-turned-ally, Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Anwar, dressed in full suit with a maroon tie, was greeted by a large crowd who include reporters who had waited outside the Cheras Rehabilitation Hospital, where he had been undergoing treatment.

He will now be joined by his wife, Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali, to have an audience with Agong at the Istana Negara in Jalan Duta.

Also awaiting him at the palace is Mahathir.
