Anwar: Najib should be given 'decent' treatment in prison

KUALA LUMPUR: PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim believes former prime minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak who is now in prison should be treated "decently".

Speaking to newsmen during the Sembang Kencang programme here, he claimed he was forced to sleep on the cement floor during his time in prison.

"During Mahathir's time, (former Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad), I had to sleep on the cement floor after being beaten (in prison)," he alleged.

"But, if you ask me if I agree that Najib should be treated in the same manner, I don't.

"There is no need for special treatment, but treat him decently and give him a bed ... but not his bed from his house," he said yesterday.

As a politician, he said he will continue to ask the people to support him (Anwar) to make changes for the betterment of the country.

"I don't hold any grudges against those who were cruel to me during my hard times.

"I also do not hold anything against Mahathir who was against me at the time. However, I do not believe he has repented," said Anwar.

The Sembang Kencang programme was a special question and answer session with the media from Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
