Justice Elizabeth Evatt AC, the first female judge to be appointed to an Australian Federal Court, a former member of the United Nations Human Rights Committee, and a commissioner of the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), will be observing the hearing of the appeal of Anwar Ibrahim’s case from 17 to 18 September 2013 at the Court of Appeal in Putrajaya.
The ICJ, a global organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, is
composed of judges and lawyers who aim to promote and protect human
rights through the rule of law, by using its unique legal expertise to
develop and strengthen national and international justice systems.
Anwar Ibrahim is a Malaysian politician and is currently the leader
of the opposition party, Parti Keadilan Rakyat, and the opposition
alliance known as Pakatan Rakyat.
The appeal hearing that Justice Elizabeth Evatt will be observing
emerged from the 2008 charges filed against Anwar Ibrahim immediately
after the general elections held that year. He was charged for allegedly
committing sodomy, which is a crime under Section 377B of the Penal
Code and carries the penalty of up to 20 years of imprisonment and
whipping. The High Court acquitted Anwar Ibrahim on 9 January 2012.
Suppressing political dissent
This is the second time that Anwar Ibrahim is facing sodomy charges after his dismissal from the Malaysian Cabinet in 1998.
In 2004, The ICJ also sent a representative to observe the sodomy
trial of Anwar Ibrahim, where the Federal Court overturned the High
Court decision to convict him. The ICJ called the Federal Court’s ruling
“a step in the right direction in upholding the rule of law”.
