Anwar court case to be mentioned this morning (31.10.2008)
The sodomy charge against Anwar Ibrahim will be mentioned at Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court, Jalan Duta today (31st Oct) at 9:30am.
Sessions Court judge SM Komathy Suppiah will deliver her decision tomorrow on whether the matter can be moved up to the High Court as applied by the prosecution.
Komathy had allowed Anwar to be released on a personal bond set at RM20,000 without surety after his defence lawyers pleaded for him to be released on personal bond under Section 388 (ii) of the Criminal Procedure Code while the prosecution argued for bail to be set at RM20,000 on 7th August this year.
Earlier this month, Komathy dismissed a preliminary objection raised by the prosecution that she had no choice but to transfer the case to a higher court. Komathy then ruled to hear the merits of an objection raised by Anwar’s legal team against the transfer notice.
