Radio Singapore International – MalaysiaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s de facto opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has demanded that the police drop the ongoing sodomy investigation against him.
This follows the emergence of a medical report that was done before the supposed second one which investigators have based their charge against Anwar on.
MalaysiaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Director-General of Health says the medical record that has been leaked should have been kept confidential.
And Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar is also calling for action to be taken against the person or persons who leaked the report.
Yvonne Gomez speaks to lawyer Sankara Nair, who is one of the members of AnwarÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s legal team to find out if patient confidentiality rules apply when it comes to important evidence that can be used in a legal trial.
