• Malaysia’s Anwar back in court


    PUTRAJAYA: Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim returned to court on Thursday for a government appeal against his sodomy acquittal, putting at risk his bid to contest an important state by-election. The 66-year-old veteran politician, who was cleared in 2012 of having sex with a young male former aide, slammed the appeal, saying it was a political ploy to tarnish his image in the conservative Muslim-majority nation. Anwar plans to contest a seat in the central state of Selangor surrounding the capital on March 23.
