KUALA LUMPUR: Activist Irene Fernandez's appeal has been further delayed when one of the computers used to type notes of evidence was corrupted by virus.
High Court judge Justice Mohamed Apandi Ali said he does not know why there were many unfortunate incidents for the case concerning the Tenaganita Sdn Bhd director.
Fernandez was convicted for maliciously publishing false news in 1995 and sentenced to 12 months' jail. She is appealing the conviction.
Justice Mohamed said the lower court registry (criminal division) has been working hard to type the notes for the appeal.
He said he had received a letter dated Aug 4 from its registrar Norhayati Abd Jabar stating the predicament faced by typists who were in charge to compile the notes.
Three typists had been assigned to type the notes of evidence. Unfortunately, one of the computers used by a typist was corrupted with virus and she had to retype, he said.
Justice Mohamed said the registrar has requested for a month to finish the job, and set Sept 10 for mention.
