Malaysian opposition leader found guilty of sodomy

MALAYSIAN opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has lost his final appeal against a conviction for sodomy and could be sentenced to at least five years in jail.  

Malaysia's Federal Court in Kuala Lumpur upheld the charge against Anwar over the accusations which date back to 2008.

Last year, the Court of Appeal found the 67-year-old guilty of sodomising a former political aide Mohamad Saiful Bukhari Azlan.   

Anwar, the leader of a three-party opposition alliance, is expected to be sentenced after Tuesday's ruling.  

He has denied the charge and claimed it was politically motivated.
