Former Opposition Leader and now sodomy and sexual deviant convict Anwar Ibrahim’s petition for a Royal Pardon has failed. So it is time to capitalise this opportunity and make the best of it.
The Malay Mail online story:
Anwar denied royal pardon, say lawyers

KUALA LUMPUR, April 1 — Malaysia has rejected a petition seeking a royal pardon for jailed opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who is serving a five-year prison term for sodomy, his lawyers said today.
The petition was filed by Anwar’s family in February after his sentence was upheld by Malaysia’s highest court. There was no immediate comment about the ruling from Malaysia’s government.
Anwar, who once posed the greatest threat to Malaysia’s long-ruling coalition, was found guilty of sodomising a former aide, a charge that he said was a politically motivated attempt to end his career.
He was head of a three-party opposition alliance that made stunning gains in the 2013 election, which for the first time raised the prospect of a genuine challenge to the coalition that has ruled Malaysia since independence in 1957.
Anwar was the ruling party’s rising star in the 1990s until he fell out with then prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. His family and political party have voiced concern about his health and conditions in prison since his sentence was upheld. — Reuters
Anwar’s political career will end here too.After this, the Director General of Prisons probably would write to the Speaker of the Dewan Rakyat and His Excellency would do what is provided in the Federal Constitution; declare Permatang Pauh Parliamentary seat vacant.

Anwar no longer Permatang Pauh MP, says lawyer
BY CHRISTINE CHEAH
KUALA LUMPUR: Senior federal counsel Amarjeet Singh says the petition for a royal pardon over Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy conviction by his family has been disposed, and he is no longer Permatang Pauh MP.
“Our stand is a decision has been made. The Constitution has spoken for itself,” Amarjeet said to reporters.
However, Anwar’s lawyers N. Surendran, Latheefa Koya and Dr Dheeraj Bhar said the decision by the Pardons Board was not confirmed and would only be made known in the Appellate and Special Powers Court here on Wednesday.
The decision was conveyed to Anwar’s lawyers in the form of an affidavit issued by Datuk Nursiah Arshad, the Prime Minister’s Department legal affairs director-general, who is also part of the Pardons Board secretariat.
Amarjeet said the applicants had asked for the delay in announcing the decision in order to convey it to Anwar first.
Surendran confirmed that neither Anwar nor his family was informed of the decision, which was made Thursday.
He then will inform the Election Commission Chairman and the EEC would convene to decide on the by-election for the rakyat of the said constituency to be given their right, for an MP to be elected and represent them in Parliament.
PKR is facing disintegration. Along with it, the Opposition loose coalition of (un)holy-marriage-of-(in)conveniences-between-back-stabbing-strange-bedfellows would disintegrate too.
The cracks are very clear when DAP CEC issued a statement that they no longer want to work with PAS President Dato’ Seri Hadi Awang, because of Hudud. Hadi is not an Opposition Leader without experience or contribution. He was one time the Opposition Leader in Parliament (11th Parliament Nov 1999-Apr 2004).
The best to do now is salvage whatever reminiscence of Anwar’s political tracks and make it satirical.
Probably someone could make a bit of money, as Anwar’s bizarre political legacy could be preserved so that more especially younger Malaysians could have the opportunity what he did and how he tried to burn the nation down, for his quest for power and hoodwink people for his in-despicable lust and sexual addiction.
The Prisons Department could provide one corner within any of the prisons complex and do a showcase centre about Anwar Ibrahim’s life; a fiery student leader, ISA detainee, admission into UMNO, won the 6GE and given a post as a Deputy Minister, toppling UMNO Youth Chief and eventually toppling UMNO Deputy President and taking over as Deputy Prime Minister with Minister of Finance job.
During these times, Anwar had several despicable sexual habits of buggering up men, adulteration with married women and fornication.
He was exposed by the Special Branch of the Royal Malaysian Police in 1993 but then Prime Minitser Dato’ Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad was not convinced enough until 2 September 1998 when he was summarily sack from all Cabinet posts. A day later, UMNO Supreme Council sacked him as a party member.
He riled up the people with voracious and malignant lies about Dr. Mahathir, his closes Cabinet colleagues, IGP, AG and eventually the entire Federal Government system and got too many to rise against the system in a massive mobstreet-styled demonstration, known as ‘Reformasi’.
‘Reformasi’ later became transformed as a political party, KeAdilan and PKN later combined with the Partai Sosialis Rakyat Malaysia to become Parti KeAdilan Rakyat as we know today.
The showcase centre would serve as a facility to exhibit the chronology of Anwar’s life; as an anarchist, political animal and sexual deviant. Artifacts and video footages would be displayed. Most of all, at the end of the showcase, visitors are allowed to view Anwar’s lifestyle as a sodomy convict through looking glasses.
This special program, which would we opened to public should be called as ‘Lawat, Libur, Liwat’ of the ‘3L’ program. The number of visitors admitted in day should be limited because Anwar is an old man (68 years old). Hence, the hours that visitors are allowed to have a peek at him through the glass (probably during his reading, feeding or political pantomimes) should be limited to probably 4-5 hours a day only.
It is in a way a living monument for the nation to honour Anwar as a failed politician, citizen, family head and probably someone who is supposed to embrace the teaching of God.
Most of all, Malaysians could benefit from the entire end-to-end big picture truth and watch for themselves a sick man who for a few times almost became the Prime Minister. After all, Anwar Ibrahim was an addict of attention even though how negative it was and he would enjoy meeting five thousand new faces every weekend and public holidays, if not everyday.
The mini gift shop at the end of this facility could provide jobs and activities for thousands of inmates of the Malaysian prison system, via the cottage industry program.
