PETALING JAYA - The eldest daughter of PKR de facto leader, Nurul Izzah Anwar seemed to ‘surrender’ with regards to her father's release.
Speaking to reporters at PKR headquarters, here, Izzah said no more pleas will be made regarding the matter.
“As for the ‘release Anwar’ campaign, I don’t need to plea or beg for his release because we have the United Nations (UN) which acknowledged the need to release Anwar,” she said after a press conference, today.
According to her, the government must do the right thing as the issue has been voiced by many quarters.
“The UN Human Rights Commissioner, Prince Zeid Ra’ad admits that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim must be released immediately.
“To me, this is proof...it includes the ‘fatwa’ of Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qardawi regarding the release,” she added.
Earlier, Nurul Izzah who is also PKR Vice President launched the sales of 'Reformasi' mooncake.
Regarding Anwar’s release, his family has repeatedly attempt to free him from imprisonment.
On February 24, Anwar’s family sent an application for a Royal Pardon following the offense of sodomising his personel aide, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
PKR Communications Director, Fahmi Fadzil said Anwar’s wife, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail and her daughter, Nurul Nuha Anwar had submitted the application to Istana Negara while Nurul Izzah sent an official letter requesting a royal pardon to Parliament.
