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.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
