Ex-lorry driver acquitted in torching m-bikes case

KUALA LUMPUR: A former lorry driver was discharged and released by the Sessions Court here of a mischief charge related to the torching of 34 motorcycles in the parking lot of the Kampung Muhibbah People’s Housing Project (PPR) in Bukit Jalil two years ago.

Judge Norina Zainol Abidin reached the verdict after concluding that the prosecution had failed to prove a prima facie case against Mohd Saiful Adey Mohd Noor, 36, at the end of the prosecution’s case.

“After hearing the testimony of prosecution witnesses and examining the arguments by the defence and prosecution, the court found that the prosecution failed to prove a prima facie case.

“Therefore, the accused is discharged and released without being called to enter a defence,” she said here yesterday, reported Bernama.

Mohd Saiful Adey, who sat in the dock handcuffed, looked happy when the verdict was announced.

Deputy public prosecutor Ngoh Jess Lynn appeared for the prosecution, while Mohd Saiful Adey was represented by lawyer M. Soosai Raj.
