Malaysia's Anwar says Najib likely headed to jail

Mahathir, who has returned as prime minister after his retirement in 2003 following a 22-year rule, has promised to reopen investigations into the 1MDB fiasco, described by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions as "kleptocracy at its worst".

Anwar also said he harboured no malice against Dr Mahathir, despite the latter sacking him in 1998, prior to his conviction for sodomy and corruption.

"They want to end Anwar's political career, but they underestimated the wrath of the people", Anwar said at the time.

Dressed in a suit, Anwar waved to reporters as he was whisked from a hospital, where he was recovering from shoulder surgery, to an audience with Malaysia's king.

Smiling and waving to supporters on Wednesday, Mr Anwar, 70, was surrounded by his family, lawyers and prison guards before getting into a auto and driving to the palace for an audience with the king.

PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim will be released from the Cheras Rehabilitation Hospital upon the finalisation of a full pardon granted by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong tomorrow, said the party's vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar. He was Mahathir's deputy in the 1990s but fell out with his mentor during the Asian financial crisis.

Yet rather than give up, Anwar worked from his prison cell to forge a new opposition alliance by ending the two-decade feud with Mahathir - a gamble that paid off when the alliance won the 9 May polls.

Mahathir, who earlier slammed Apandi's credibility, said the solicitor general will take over Apandi's job while he goes on leave. Without the pardon, Anwar would have been banned from politics for five years due to having a criminal record.

Cam Smith calls time on rep career
Smith also led Australia to wins in the 2013 and 2017 Rugby League World Cups, having played 56 Tests for the Kangaroos. In that period he has missed just one game - the series opener in 2010 due to injury - and won a record 26 matches.

Mahathir has said he expects to run the government for up to two years but has signalled the reins would be turned over to the Anwar eventually. "Now we need to see him become prime minister".

Mahathir said that whether Najib would serve time in prison would depend on the results of an investigation.

Anwar is seeking a royal pardon on the grounds of "miscarriage of justice", which would reverse his conviction and make him eligible to actively participate in politics. Anwar's wife, Wan Azizah, was appointed Malaysia's new deputy prime minister by Mahathir on Saturday.

Anwar was freed in 2004 and cleared of the sodomy charges after Mahathir retired. It regrouped as the Alliance of Hope, but it was Mahathir's political comeback and his embrace by Anwar's party that helped seal the opposition's victory.

Senior officials at scandal-plagued state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) withheld information from its board and took some decisions without the board's approval, according to a Malaysian government audit of the fund that was declassified on Tuesday.

Asked about other possible crimes, Mahathir said: "We can not do everything at the same time at one go".

Mahathir blocked Najib from leaving the country at the weekend.
