Nurul Izzah's wedding: Prison yes to Anwar, now up to cops

The prisons department has agreed to allow jailed politician Anwar Ibrahim to conduct his daughter's akad nikah (wedding vow) ceremony at his Damansara home in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow, o­n the condition there are no objections from the police.

Anwar's lawyer Sankara Nair told malaysiakini today that a prison official informed him this morning that the department has no problem in sending the jailed ex-deputy premier to attend the wedding of his eldest daughter Nurul Izzah and engineer Raja Ahmad Sharir Iskandar Raja Salim tomorrow.

Anwar is serving 15-years jail sentence for sodomy and corruption.
