After attending a Labour Day celebration in Putrajaya on Monday (May 1), Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim told reporters that every convicted person has a right to seek a royal pardon by filing an application with the Pardons board. But Anwar, who sits on the board, said they did not consider the application for a royal pardon for Datuk Seri Najib Razak in their last meeting with the King.
