The big story in Malaysia and Singapore is the sodomy charge against Anwar, the leader of the Opposition. What amuses me is how a 60 -year-old man with a bad back is able to commit the crime (under Malaysian law punishable up to 20 years in jail) when the other party is a strapping twentysomething man.

Ten years ago he was also accused of sodomy against his driver and brother-in-law but the sentence was subsequently overruled by the Supreme Court.

Malaysian politics is rotten and unless there are reforms, it’ll become more rotten.
