Vicisitudes en la vida de Anwar Ibrahim

Graphic News

May 16, 2018 -- El ícono reformista de Malasia Anwar Ibrahim fue puesto en libertad tras recibir un perdón real, transformándose de preso político en un primer ministro en espera después de la excepcional victoria electoral del primer ministro Mahathir Mohamad.

Anwar spent nine of the past 20 years in prison on charges he insists were politically motivated, having been jailed on two occasions, the first time by Mahathir in 1998.

His sentence was set to end June 8 but last week’s unexpected election win, which ended the National Front’s 60-year rule, led to his swift release.

Ensuring the full royal pardon of Anwar was a key part of the agreement between Mahathir and the opposition when it was decided in January he would swap sides and run as their leader in the election, united by a joint desire to oust embattled Prime Minister Najib Razak.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
