Judge Akhtar Tahir made the ruling on the bid by the PKR president during open court proceedings this morning.

On February 26, lawyer Mohd Khairul Azam Abdul Aziz filed the suit to overturn the royal pardon granted to Anwar over his sodomy case.

On June 2, Anwar filed the striking-out application.
