AP Interview: Malaysian in sodomy trial slams law
AP Interview: Malaysia opposition leader says sodomy law he's charged with breaking is archaic
By The Associated Press

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) ' Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim says anti-sodomy laws enforced by authorities to put him on trial are archaic and can breed intolerance.

Anwar told The Associated Press on Thursday that he is bracing for the possibility of a long prison sentence next week when the Kuala Lumpur High Court delivers a decision on charges that he sodomized a young male former aide.

Anwar denies the accusation. Sodomy in this Muslim-majority country is punishable by 20 years in prison and whipping with a rattan cane.
