KUALA LUMPUR, April 7 – The Prisons Department yesterday denied that de facto PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who was serving a prison sentence in Sungai Buloh, had given religious lectures and counselling sessions to inmates. In a statement, the department said it had special officers or would invite qualified people to such programmes.
“It is not true at all because for security and health reasons Anwar has been placed in an individual cell since he was imprisoned on February 10, 2015,” it said. On Anwar being supplied milk three times a week, the department said milk, supplements or special diets were recommended for prisoners who were sick or had health problems. “Milk is supplied not because of Anwar or only given after he is here to serve his prison sentence,” it said in response to statements made by several MPs and lawyers which were inaccurate. – Bernama
