这宗案件，受到了国际媒体的关注，如CNN, BBC 及 Al Jazeera, 都作出头条新闻及广泛的报导。
A surprising verdict !
Anwar Ibrahim was acquitted this morning by Kuala Lumpur High Court judge of sodomising his former young political aide.
It gained global attention ... it was reported widely as headline news by international cable news such as CNN, BBC and Al Jazeera.
Prime Minister Najib, a few of his cabinet ministers, ruling coalition leaders, as expected, trumpeted the verdict as a show of transparency and independence of the Malaysian Judiciary.
Only UMNO members and its ruling coalition cohorts believed in such rhetoric.
Apparently, Najib has brought himself into a tight corner that an acquittal is the only viable choice in view of the current situation ....
The charge should not have been brought against Anwar, for the second time, in the first place.
Being vindicated of his sodomy case, Anwar did not achieve martyr status ......
A new political game is starting on a more level field ....
