PUTRAJAYA: The Federal Court has convicted Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of sodomising his former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

The court on Tuesday upheld the Court of Appeal’s Mar 7, 2014 decision against the Opposition leader.

Anwar's lead counsel Datuk Seri Gopal Sri Ram requested for a half-hour recess to receive further instructions from his client.

The court has stood down till 1pm. 

Anwar, 67, was sentenced to five years’ jail on Mar 7 last year by the Court of Appeal for sodomising his former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari, 30, at the Desa Damansara condominium in Bukit Damansara on June 26, 2008.

In its 85-page written judgment, the Court of Appeal had overturned an earlier acquittal by the High Court.

Anwar had filed 35 grounds in his petition of appeal asking the Federal Court to overturn the Court of Appeal’s ruling.
