At his first media conference at his home in Bukit Segambut here after being released from prison today, following a full pardon from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Anwar calmly faced the media and even joked when allowing the first question in the press conference to be made by a journalist from a television station which was "unfriendly" to him following his sacking from UMNO and the government.
