Royal pardon sought
An appeal for a royal pardon has been submitted. The courts may have pronounced a guilty verdict but our father, and we as a family contine to state that he is innocent. By virtue of Article 42 of the federal constitution, we hope that the royal institution would in the name of justice based on all the facts grant an appeal. We also would pursue and exhaust all available recourse provided for a citizen in this country.

As the petition by Anwar's family for a royal pardon has been filed in accordance with the Federal Constitution, his status as MP can only be settled after His Majesty makes his decision (on the pardon application).

Abdul Razak’s legacy
We are extremely concerned that some recent news articles and postings have given rise to speculation as to the nature and extent of the inheritance that our late father, Abdul Razak, had left behind. We wish to put on record that Abdul Razak was a highly-principled man, well known to all who knew him for his frugality and utmost integrity and any statement or inference to the contrary would be totally false and misleading to his memory and to his service and sacrifices for the nation. We take issue with anyone who taints his memory, whatever the motive. We would also like to add that our whole family is united on this issue.

Offer to Anwar
I do not know about the issue, I only read about it in the newspapers. However, there are more important issues to be handled than the battling for positions.
