About This Book

In the 2013 General Election Anwar Ibrahim led Malaysia's opposition coalition, Pakatan Rakyat, to win, for the first time, the majority of the popular vote, though not the majority of the parliamentary seats. Less than two years later, Anwar Ibrahim was incarcerated in Sungai Buloh prison on the charge of sodomy, the second time that he was convicted and imprisoned for such a similar offence since his sacking as Deputy Prime Minister in 1998. However, that first conviction was dismissed by the Federal Court in 2004. Lawyer and long-time commentator on Anwar's legal battles, Pawancheek Marican, explains the various appeals and applications for review to the country's highest courts made by Anwar against his latest conviction which saw him go from a free man to a prisoner of the Malaysian state. Based upon court transcripts and interviews with key figures of Anwar's legal team, Reversal of Verdict exposes the failures of due process and of legal thinking endemic in the trial, as well as critically assesses Malaysia's judicial system in an era of political conflict.
