ANWAR ON TRIAL: In the Face of Injustice

cover Anwar

The Anwar Ibrahim trials during the late nineties left the landscape of Malaysia’s judiciary forever changed. Convicted to a six-year prison term on charges that many believe to have been trumped-up, Anwar has become the symbol of a new generation of Malaysians determined to seek truth and justice.

ANWAR ON TRIAL: In the Face of Injustice gives readers a cogent look into the detailed workings of the 1998/1999 corruption trial of Anwar Ibrahim. Captured through the lens of a lawyer who was present throughout the proceedings, the book presents a first-hand account of the goings-on in court and outside it.

Pawancheek Marican examines the way that the Malaysian judiciary was systematically emasculated and turned into a pawn of the executive, the consequences of which will linger for many decades to come. From the trial judge who forbade Anwar to argue his defence of conspiracy to the questionable role of the Attorney-General’s Chambers, the book lays bare the political machinations taking place behind the scenes by those in power to remain in power. The information contained within this book comes at an opportune moment as Anwar Ibrahim faces yet another sodomy trial in 2009 – this time, however, from the freedom of his own home and as the Opposition Leader and Member of Parliament for Permatang Pauh in Penang.


Pawancheek Marican is an Advocate and Solicitor of the High Court of Malaya. He has been an Adjunct Professor of Law at the International Islamic University (Malaysia) since 2006.
