Anwar Ibrahim Charged Again

Tuesday, 22nd May 2012

Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim will be charged for April "Bersih" protest. Anwar Ibrahim's meteoric rise up the ranks of the ruling party in 1990s to deputy prime minister ended with his sacking in a falling-out with his boss Mahathir Mohamad (Dr. M).

Tens of thousands of Malaysians hit the streets of the capital Kuala Lumpur for the rally organised by electoral-reform group Bersih 2.0, demanding changes to an election system they say is rigged in the ruling coalition's favour.
