PETALING JAYA: The Attorney General’s Chambers will study the High Court’s grounds for acquitting Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi of corruption charges before making a decision on whether to appeal, says Attorney General Tan Sri Idrus Harun (pic).

“I will discuss (this) with my prosecution team and study the grounds for the acquittal before l can decide whether to appeal against the court’s decision,” he said yesterday.

The former deputy prime minister was acquitted of all 40 graft charges in the Foreign Visa System (VLN) case.

High Court judge Justice Mohd Yazid Mustafa held that the prosecution had failed to prove a prima facie case.
