Sodomy II: Proceedings Adjourned To A Later Date
PUTRAJAYA, Nov 7 – The proceedings of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s final sodomy appeal at the Federal Court today will see the continuation of submissions by the defence team. Former Federal Court judge Datuk Seri Gopal Sri Ram, who is also leading a team of 14 lawyers representing Anwar, will present his submissions today and he is expected to stress on important issues relating to the case.
Yesterday, Chief Justice Tun Arifin Zakaria had given Gopal an extra 15 minutes for his submissions today, which will be followed by submissions from lead prosecutor, Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah. The proceeding yesterday began at 9.30am and ended at 7pm, making it the longest session since proceedings began on Monday, October 28.
Following new issues brought forward during the proceedings at the Court of Appeal this time around, many expect the five-member panel judge will be able to reach a verdict on the case by today. However, many are also prepared for any surprises that many crop up.
