Hope #40: Leaders who preserve democracy

US President Barack Obama on Monday warned Malaysia must be careful that the high-profile prosecution of former opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim does not have a “chilling effect” on democracy.

Hosting a group of young leaders from Asean countries at the White House, Obama was asked about the case of former deputy prime minister Anwar, who was jailed on much-criticised sodomy charges.

“Malaysia has a history of democracy that has to be preserved,” Obama said.
