My right hon. and noble Friend the former Minister of State, Baroness Warsi, raised Anwar Ibrahim’s case with senior members of the Malaysian government during her visit to Malaysia in April this year. Our High Commission in Malaysia has also discussed the matter with Malaysian ministers and officials on a number of occasions in recent months and is closely monitoring Anwar’s appeal against his conviction, including by attending court hearings alongside other diplomatic missions.
