Malaysia's "kangaroo court" acquits Anwar Ibrahim
Kangaroo, huh!? So, the High Court Judge whom Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim accused, together with PM Najib Razak, "of using a 'show trial' to destroy his political career and extinguish any threat to the mostly Muslim nation’s ruling party"[Anwar assails Msian judge, court - WSJ, Aug 23 2011] acquits Anwar this morning.
Hightlights from a Bernama report today:
So, what now? Saiful Bukhari Azlan has said he will accept the outcome of today's Court decision and Anwar has offered his thanks to Allah right after Yang Ariff Mohamad Zabidin Mohd Diah had found him not guilty. Whatever really happened between Anwar and his ex-aide Saiful, only they and God know.
What I know is Anwar owes the Judge and our courts an apology.
