Anwar expected to be discharged by Friday

nurul-izzah_anwar_600PETALING JAYA: Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who was admitted to Hospital Kuala Lumpur yesterday, is expected to be discharged by Friday.

His daughter, Nurul Izzah Anwar, confirmed this with FMT, adding that her father was looking much better.

“(I’m) grateful. Even yesterday he looked better. We will visit him again later today.

“(But) we haven’t received his complete medical report,” she said in a text message to FMT.

The PKR vice-president yesterday said that Anwar was rushed to the hospital at 2pm, where they found that his blood pressure was “erratic”.

She added that Anwar needed to undergo intensive physiotherapy for an old shoulder injury.

This wasn’t the first time Anwar has been hospitalised due to his blood pressure.

The former deputy prime minister was hospitalised for the same reason in May last year.

In June 2016, he was also hospitalised for severe back pain.

Anwar is currently serving a five-year jail sentence for sodomising his former aide.
