Anwar and family withdraw application to review Pardons Board’s decision

KUALA LUMPUR: PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (pic), his wife and two daughters have withdrawn their appeal against their judicial review application, challenging the Pardons Board’s decision which denied their petition for a pardon over his sodomy conviction.

Latheefa said her clients had filed a notice of discontinuance at the Federal Court and High Court on June 26 and July 4 respectively.

Anwar was convicted for sodomy on Feb 10, 2015 and was sentenced to a five-year jail term.
