    PETALING JAYA: Imprisoned former opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was admitted today to Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) to undergo a series of scheduled tests to address his underlying medical condition.
    The hospital’s director in a statement today said during Anwar’s stay in the hospital there would be “relevant specialists” who will review him and carry out the necessary investigations on his health.
    He added that Anwar’s condition is currently stable.
    On the same note, PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil said Anwar’s legal team had been informed that he was transferred from Sungai Buloh prison to HKL for medical treatment and has been placed in Ward 28.
    Earlier today, several journalists and cameramen were spotted at HKL trying to get a glimpse of Anwar who was driven in a black van and escorted by several prison department officers.
    They were not allowed to meet Anwar.
    Anwar's daughter, Nurul Nuha, had recently issued a statement claiming that her father had lost up to 6kg with a “presence of blood regularly in his stools” and needed an MRI for a pre-existing shoulder injury that was causing him pain.
    Anwar is currently serving a five-year sentence for a sodomy conviction.
