Yusoff has sought a court declaration that Anwar has sexually assaulted him. He has also sought general, exemplary and aggravated damages, including the cost of medical therapy sessions he is taking. Earlier, in January, 2020, the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) had refused to press charges against Anwar due to “insufficient evidence” and “contradictions” of facts. Anwar’s lawyers had said that they will file a defamation suit against Yusoff Rawther, however, they decided against the same later.
