The following is the first of a three-part interview with Dr Munawar A Anees where he tells malaysiakini, among others, about the days leading up to his arrest.
Malaysiakini: What is the latest status with your legal cases in Malaysia?
Munawar A Anees: What the Malaysian judiciary has up its sleeves is anybody's guess. More than eight years have elapsed since the beginning of this catastrophic cycle of events and there seems to be no end to it. After a long and agonising wait, when I traveled to Malaysia in April this year, several appeals came up for a short hearing but nothing has been heard since then.
