Anwar Ibrahim Goes to Court?

Asiaone had this report "I took loan because Anwar was involved, says businessman". It reported,
"When asked by his lawyer, D. Paramalingam, how the companies and individuals were related, Low said: "From what I know, they are all cronies of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim."
The report ended in a post script,
(At an earlier hearing, judicial commissioner Hadhariah Syed Ismail rejected a bid by Low to amend his statement of defence to include the involvement of Anwar as the person behind the RM445 million deal to acquire AMCB, which in turn owned Kewangan Bersatu Bhd (KBB), a financial institution at that time.)
The Star reports today "Court allows businessman’s appeal to include Anwar in suit",
The Court of Appeal here on Wednesday allowed an appeal brought by a businessman to amend his statement of defence to include the involvement of opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the person behind the RM445mil deal to acquire Arus Murni Corporation Bhd (AMCB), which was owned Kewangan Bersatu Bhd (KBB).

Justice Mohamed Apandi also ordered that a fresh trial be held before another judge. The panel also awarded Low, 55, RM10,000 in legal costs.
and
Low sought to include Anwar, who was the then finance minister and now opposition leader as he was the person behind the RM445mil deal to acquire Arus Murni Corporation Bhd, which in turn was owned Kewangan Bersatu Bhd, a financial institution at that time.
There is a Chinese saying "may you live in interesting times".

See you in court Anwar Ibrahim?
