SHAH ALAM, 24 Mar: The Kuala Lumpur High Court set March 27 to hear Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s application regarding the judicial review to allow him to be present in Parliament.

Judge Datuk Asmabi Mohamad fixed the date in chambers in the presence of Senior Federal Council Amarjeet Singh who represented Home Minister and the Commissioner General of Prisons, and lawyer Latheefa Koya who appeared for Anwar.

On March 18, Anwar, 67, filed the application and named the Home Minister and the Commissioner General of Prisons as the first and second respondents.

Through the supporting affidavit, Anwar, who is currently in the Sungai Buloh Prison, claimed that he was still a member of the Dewan Rakyat and the Opposition Leader as the petition for a royal pardon to the Yang Di-pertuan Agong had yet to be decided.

He submitted the application for the royal pardon on Feb 24 after the Federal Court maintained his five-year jail sentence for sodomising his personal assistant Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
