Malaysia’s Anwar dismisses offers of exile abroad


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has rejected offers of asylum abroad ahead of a final appeal in October on a sodomy conviction that could see him jailed, a political aide said on Monday. Anwar was convicted and sentenced to five years in prison in March on charges he sodomized a young former male aide, but is free pending a final appeal set for October 28-29. Anwar, 67, has dismissed the case as fabricated by the government to ruin his political career.
