KUALA LUMPUR: The prosecution filed a notice of appeal yesterday against the High Court's decision to acquit Shah Alam City Council engineer Hanif Basree Abdul Rahman of murdering Noritta Samsudin. 

The notice was filed at the High Court registry at 11am. 

On Thursday, Justice Abdull Hamid Embong acquitted Hanif after ruling that the prosecution had not made a prima facie case against the 37-year-old engineer. 

On Dec 22, Hanif was charged with murdering Noritta, a business development executive and part-time guest relations officer, at D-7-1, Puncak Prima Galleria Condominium, Jalan 17, Sri Hartamas, between 1.30am and 4am on Dec 5. 

In Shah Alam, the city council said Hanif submitted his application to go on annual leave yesterday. 

Hanif, 37, went to the office at about 8am to report for duty after going on leave on half-month salary since Dec 8. 

He met some of his colleagues after submitting his leave form and left. 

Council secretary Nordin Sulaiman said Hanif should be back at work on July 12. 

“He submitted the leave application form and is on leave from today (yesterday),” he said. 

Nordin said Hanif was to report to work within a week after the court acquitted him of the charges.
