The High Court in Kuala Lumpur has acquitted opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim. We welcome the closure of this long-running case, which we have followed closely. The ruling reflects favorably on the independence of Malaysia's judiciary and presents an opportunity for all Malaysians to focus on the future.
