Anwar Ibrahim, the Malaysian opposition leader, is facing trial for a second time accused of sodomising a male aide.
The start of the trial was delayed by a day amid legal wrangling over Anwar's defence team's access to prosecution evidence.
Anwar has accused Malaysia's prime minister, Najib Razak, of trying to frame him to kill off his political career – allegations Najib has denied.
