Statement on the pardon and release of Anwar Ibrahim

17 May 2018


The pardon and release of Mr Anwar Ibrahim, leader of the People’s Justice Party in Malaysia, is welcome, long-overdue and has been consistently advocated by the European Union. 

Mr Anwar made a great personal sacrifice for his country’s democracy and he is now free to participate fully in Malaysian politics.
