Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has lost his final appeal
against a conviction and been sentenced to five years in jail for
sodomy. Malaysia's Federal Court in Kuala Lumpur upheld the charge and
sentence against Anwar over the accusations which date back to 2008.
Last year, the Court of Appeal found the 67-year-old guilty of
sodomising a former political aide Mohamad Saiful Bukhari Azlan. He has
denied the charge and claimed it was politically motivated.
