Malaysia's highest court on Tuesday upheld a sodomy conviction against opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, rejecting his appeal against the verdict and casting fresh doubt over his turbulent political career
Chief Justice Arifin Zakaria said the Federal Court has dismissed Anwar's appeal against the conviction handed down last March, which found him guilty of sodomising a young former male aide, Mohamad Saiful Bukhari Azlan. Last year's conviction brought a five-year jail term.
