Anwar Ibrahim’s pardon in 2018 is being challenged by lawyer Mohd Khairul Azam Abdul Aziz, who says it is not in accordance with the law.

KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here today dismissed applications by the government and Anwar Ibrahim to strike out a lawsuit filed against them by lawyer Mohd Khairul Azam Abdul Aziz over Anwar’s pardon in 2018.

In his lawsuit, Khairul is seeking a declaration that the pardon given to Anwar is not in accordance with the law, as the Federal Territories Pardons Board was not formed in accordance with provisions in the Federal Constitution.

Judge Akhtar Tahir ruled that this is not a clear cut case to be summarily dismissed through striking out the applications under the Rules of Court.
