Anwar Ibrahim Speaks – level 2

24-05-2018 07:00

Anwar Ibrahim left jail after the prime minister asked for a royal pardon.

During a press conference, the reformist icon said thank you and said that all Malaysian people support democracy and freedom. He said that the most important lesson that he learned in jail was the ‘value of freedom’, and he added that the problems in Malaysia must end so that the people can be free.

The prime minister said that he will quit in two years so Ibrahim can take his position.

Difficult words: royal pardon (when a king or queen says that someone is no longer in trouble), reformist (a person who wants to make changes), icon (a person, a symbol, or an idea of something else).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
