Sessions court judge SM Komathy Suppiah allowed Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to be released on personal bond of RM20,000 with no surety.

Earlier, Anwar claimed trial to the charge of committing carnal intercourse against the order of nature. Komathy set Sept 10 for mention.

This will enable the de facto PKR leader to go on his campaign as PKR candidate for the Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat.

The four-man prosecution team, led by solicitor-general Datuk Idrus Harun, had proposed bail at RM20,000 with one surety and asked for his passport to be surrendered.

Counsel for Anwar, Sulaiman Abdullah – who leads the nine-member defence team – however asked for a personal bond.
