Vigil for Anwar: Lighting candles in the dark


Even as 1MDB struggles to repay its debts, a vigil is taking place at Sungai Buloh Prison to express solidarity with Anwar Ibrahim. At this rate, he could turn into a Mandela-like figure in no time. He has already been in jail/detention for eight years: two years in the 1970s and six years since 1998. Now, another five years.

1MDB must disclose the full terms of the amount borrowed from tycoon Ananda Krishnan, following the announcement that the company had settled the RM2 billion loan with banks.
