Book Launch – Mark Trowell, The Prosecution of Anwar Ibrahim: The Final Play
The Prosecution of Anwar Ibrahim: The Final Play (Marshall Cavendish) records the events surrounding opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s acquittal after trial on a charge of sodomy and the appeals that ultimately resulted in his conviction and imprisonment. The book records significant events in the life of Malaysia. Was the prosecution of Anwar about upholding moral values or was the law used simply as a weapon against a political adversary? The book raises further questions about the human condition. It is about how we treat each other; how laws impose upon a community certain values, cultural prejudices and even decrees how a community must act. Should citizens be ruled by law, or the rule of law?
Featuring special guest Azmi Sharom.
