The family of Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said Wednesday they had sought a royal pardon for his conviction on sodomy charges to reverse a "gross miscarriage of justice".
Malaysia's highest court on Tuesday upheld a sodomy conviction and five-year jail term for Anwar Ibrahim, throwing the opposition leader's political future into peril with a decision that he angrily denounced as a conspiracy.
When the five-member Federal Court bench delivers its verdict on the Sodomy II case tomorrow, it will be deciding on more than one man's freedom.
