KUALA LUMPUR: The Attorney-General’s Chambers has filed an appeal against the High Court decision to release lawyer P. Uthayakumar for an alleged criminal intimidation act on a policeman at a magistrate’s court last year. 

The notice, which was signed by Attorney-General Datuk Abdul Gani Patail, was filed at the Shah Alam High Court registry on May 12. 

On May 5, Justice Suriyadi Halim Omar granted Uthayakumar, 41, a discharge not amounting to an acquittal after hearing a revision of the criminal intimidation charge.  

Uthayakumar had applied to the High Court for a revision of the charge on April 8. 

He was charged on Jan 21 at the Sepang magistrate’s court with criminally intimidating Chief Insp Ponnaya Ganasen with the words “You watch out, I will fix you, we fix you” after an inquest on Sept 3last year. 

The inquest was into the death of police detainee S. Tharma Rajen, who died at the Putrajaya Hospital last June 21.
