PUTRAJAYA, Feb 10 – Police have set up fences around the Palace of Justice since early morning ahead of the Sodomy II verdict on Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. Hordes of reporters, photographers and videographers began to converge in front of the complex since 6am. Pas information chief Datuk Mahfuz Omar and PKR’s secretary-general Rafizi Ramli were in the compound at about 7.20am.
Last night, the Opposition leader said he would not accept any decision by the Federal Court other than that of his freedom for his Sodomy II verdict. Speaking to a crowd of about 2,000 people at a gathering of his supporters at Padang Timur here, he said he was innocent and would fight against any corrupted and racist system in the country. Stay with us as we wait for the verdict.
