Malaysian court rejects Anwar Ibrahim's final bid to review sodomy conviction


KUALA LUMPUR Malaysia’s federal court rejected on Wednesday jailed opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s final bid to set aside his sodomy conviction and five-year jail term.

A panel of judges ruled there was no merit in Anwar’s application for a review of his conviction, his final legal option for an acquittal. He will now have to serve out the remaining 16 months of his prison term.
