STATEMENT
 

ANWAR IBRAHIM

TUESDAY, 10 FEBRUARY 2015 

Labor expresses our grave concern that Malaysian Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim has lost his final appeal against a conviction on the charge of sodomy.

It is understood Mr Anwar was sentenced to five years jail, which Labor believes is particularly harsh.

Malaysia is a good friend of Australia.  On that basis we respectfully request that consideration be given to the human rights implications of cases like Mr Anwar's.
