Anwar’s statements from prison, if unauthorised, could add jail time, says Nur Jazlan
Deputy Home Minister Nur Jazlan Mohame says it is an offence for inmates to issue statements from jail without the Prison Department's approval. â€" The Malaysian Insight file pic, January 12, 2018.

ANWAR Ibrahim’s jail time could be extended if the de facto opposition leader’s recent statements had been issued from behind bars without the approval of the director-general of Prisons Department, said Deputy Home Minister Nur Jazlan Mohamed.

"Lately, several statements have been issued by Anwar. I wonder whether he really made the statements,” he said at the anniversary celebration of Anak Minangkabau Johor Welfare Association at Kompleks Tan Sri Mohamed Rahmat in Johor Baru today.

Nur Jazlan said the statements included Anwar’s "blessing" for Pakatan Harapan (PH) to name former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the opposition prime minister.

"If Anwar’s statements were relayed through third parties and were not approved by the Prisons Department, then it is an offence that can affect the jail period."

He said action could be taken against the third parties who had relayed Anwar’s sta tements, such as by barring further visits to Anwar.

Dr Mahathir is reported to have agreed to make way for Anwar to become prime minister as soon as a royal pardon was obtained for the jailed PKR leader, which would allow him to return to Parliament once more. â€" Bernama, January 12, 2018.
