KUALA LUMPUR— PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will be released from prison on June 8, two days ahead of schedule, said the Prisons Department today.
Its director-general, Datuk Sri Zulkifli Omar, said the accelerated release date was confirmed barring any intervention from higher authorities.
“The 2000 Prison Regulations (No. 28) states that if a prisoner’s release date falls on a weekend or public holiday, they have to be released the day before,” he said.
“Because June 10 is a Sunday and June 9 is a Saturday, he (Anwar) will be released on Friday, June 8.”
