PETALING JAYA – Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was found to be suffering from fluctuating blood pressure after he was rushed to the hospital from Sungei Buloh prison on Monday night.
PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil said the former Opposition leader’s condition “warrants further medical investigation.”
â€œWe’re worried about the fluctuating blood pressure,” Fahmi said.
On Monday, lawyer Sivarasa Rasiah said that Anwar, the de facto PKR leader, was taken to Kuala Lumpur Hospital after his blood pressure became unstable.
Anwar had raised concerns in July 2015 about his health, with his lawyer asking for him to be placed under house arrest as his health was deteriorating rapidly, adding that Anwar was not being given proper access to treatment in prison.
However, a panel of 11 senior consultants from Kuala Lumpur Hospital overseeing Anwar’s health had found that none of his concerns were acute conditions.
Anwar was sentenced to five years in jail by the Federal Court in 2014 which found him guilty of sodomising his former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan. – The Star
