Defying a ban by Universiti Malaya (UM) officials, Malaysia's former deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim returned to his alma mater to address supporters before the final verdict on his sodomy case appeal. Close to 300 people reportedly forced UM gates open for Ibrahim.  

Despite university pressure, the UM Undergraduates’ Association invited Ibrahim to speak Monday evening. The university ordered the early closing of its offices, citing electrical issues. 

Below is video of the gates opening posted by Malaysian news site KLXpress.
