Lawyer claims Anwar to be charged over April protest

KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim will be charged over an April protest demanding fair elections, his lawyer said Monday, accusing the government of a fresh bid to remove Anwar from politics.

The move comes just four months after Anwar was acquitted of sodomy in a long-running trial that the charismatic leader has said was engineered by the government.

Anwar will be charged in a Kuala Lumpur court on Tuesday with violating a contentious new law on public assemblies and a court order restricting the April 28 rally, his lawyer Sivarasa Rasiah told AFP.
