SEREMBAN: The Attorney-General should apply for a judicial review of the Court of Appeal's decision to free a 21-year-old national bowler from jail for committing statutory rape.

National Council of Justices of the Peace secretary-general Datuk M. Ramalingam said the Court of Appeal could also on its own review its findings for setting aside the Malacca High Court's order to sentence tenpin bowling ace Noor Afizal Azizan to five years in jail for raping a 13-year-old girl in 2009.
