Sodomy II: Appeal proceedings extended to Thursday

Proceedings in Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s appeal against conviction will be extended a day, with the prosecution expected to only begin submitting on Wednesday.

Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah confirmed the prosecution’s submissions would be either “tomorrow afternoon, or the day after tomorrow”.

Despite starting his submission at 9.30am, Anwar’s lead counsel Gopal Sri Ram had asked for two extra hours to finish his submissions when the court took a break for lunch at 1pm.

Asked his opinion about the defence’s submission, Shafee said it was an argument they expected to hear, and that the prosecution had “all the answers”
