SHAH ALAM: The disciplinary board of the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) will decide whether disciplinary action can be taken against engineer Hanif Basree Abdul Rahman who has been acquitted of a murder charge by the High Court.
Shah Alam Datuk Bandar Ramli Mahmud said the board would meet once Hanif Basree reported for work on July 12.
The board has to know whether there is a case or not to take disciplinary action against him, he said here yesterday.
Ramli is head of the three-member disciplinary board, the other two being the MBSA secretary and the legal adviser.
He said action could be taken against a civil servant for smearing the good name of his organisation but this must be looked into thoroughly because it is subjective.
Hanif Basree, 36, was freed on Thursday after the High Court found no reason to ask him to enter his defence to the charge of murdering business development executive Noritta Samsudin, 22, on Dec 5. Bernama
