Anwar discharged from Hospital Kuala Lumpur

PETALING JAYA - Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been discharged from Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) and will be continuing treatment at Sungai Buloh Prison.

"Praise God, the doctor has allowed me to leave. I will continue my treatment at Sungai Buloh Prison while waiting on the results of the medical test," tweeted Anwar on Friday.

Anwar was admitted to HKL on Tuesday for a series of scheduled tests.

According to his wife Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Anwar had to undergo an investigative scope to determine the source of his bloody stool.

After visiting her husband on Tuesday, she told reporters that Anwar has lost weight and looked "skinny and gaunt".

The former opposition leader is also said to be suffering from high blood pressure and chronic shoulder pain.

Anwar was jailed in February for five years on charges that he sodomized a former male aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan in 2008, a case he claims was fabricated by the government.
