Anwar Ibrahim to concentrate on politics

Malaysia's opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim says his acquittal yesterday on sodomy charges will allow him to now focus on his demand for democratic reforms and anti-corruption efforts.

The 64-year-old was charged in 2008 with sodomising a former aide in a case he said was politically motivated.

The High Court in Kuala Lumpur ruled DNA evidence in the case was unreliable.

It's the second time Dr Anwar's been charged with sodomy and found innocent.

Presenter: Auskar Surbakti
