Bill's Media Releases

ANWAR IBRAHIM

 

 

Labor expresses our grave concern that Malaysian Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim has lost his final appeal against a conviction on the charge of sodomy.

It is understood Mr Ibrahim was sentenced to five years jail, which Labor believes is particularly harsh.

 

Malaysia is a good friend of Australia.  On that basis we respectfully request that consideration be given to the human rights implications of cases like Mr Ibrahim's.
