Court hearing for Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy trial has been put off after the prosecution applied for a stay of proceeding pending an appeal for the case to be transferred to High Court.


anwar sodomy trial 141108 01The Sessions Court this morning was to have fixed a date for the trial to be heard before Sessions judge SM Komathy Suppiah.

Last Friday, Komathy had dismissed an application by the prosecution to have the case transferred to the High Court.

Her ruling was based on her finding that the transfer order signed by Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail was invalid.

“This case raises a unique situation where it is evident that any involvement by the AG in this case would seriously undermine public confidence in the administration of criminal justice,” she had said.

However, the prosecution had filed an appeal against the decision on Nov 11. The appeal will be heard at the High Court on Nov 20 and 21.

Anwar objects stay application

This morning the prosecution applied to Komathy not to fix a date pending their appeal against her decision.

Anwar’s lawyers have objected the stay application. They have also complained that they have not received several documents from the prosecution as promised last week.

Lead prosecutor Yusof Zainal Abiden however gave his undertakings that the documents would be given soon.
