UN Rights Office Expresses Dismay Over Anwar Ruling



GENEVA, Feb 10 – The UN Human Rights office said today it was “disappointed” by the Malaysian Federal Court ruling upholding the conviction on sodomy charges of opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. “The bottom line for us is the charge in this case should not be a criminal offence,” UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a news briefing in Geneva. Malaysia’s highest court rejected today an appeal by Anwar against a 2014 sodomy conviction, sending the politician who poses the greatest threat to the long-ruling party back to prison for five years.
