Malaysia awaits opposition Anwar's sodomy judgment

Malaysia awaits opposition Anwar's sodomy judgment

Hundreds of Malaysians have gathered outside a court building to await a verdict in opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim's sodomy trial.
Anwar says it will be "a day of infamy" if he is convicted Monday of sodomizing a male former aide.
The Kuala Lumpur High Court could sentence him to a maximum of 20 years in prison.
Anwar insists he is innocent and has toured the nation over the past week for political rallies to reiterate his claim that Prime Minister Najib Razak's administration concocted the charge to damage the opposition.
Najib is expected to call for national elections this year. He denies plotting against Anwar.
Anwar says in a statement that authorities can never imprison his soul or his spirit.
