[INTERVIEW] ‘Remind People that I Won’t Be Free for Long’

[INTERVIEW] ‘Remind People that I Won’t Be Free for Long’

Ibrahim was Malaysia’s deputy prime minister and finance minister until he ran afoul of the long-serving former prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad. The political conflict led to a 1998 conviction on sodomy and corruption charges, followed by 6 years in solitary confinement. In 2008, Ibrahim put together an opposition coalition that he claims would have won the 2013 government election, had the elections been fair — which the ruling government, helmed by current Prime Minister Najib Razak disputes. Convicted again of sodomy in March — an almost certainly politically motivated overturning of an earlier acquittal — Anwar may face another long spell in prison. “Remind people that I won’t be free for long,” he told FP. (The interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.)
