Our sources have confirmed that a former lorry driver, Mohd Saiful Adey Mohd Noor, aged 36, from Kuala Lumpur, was exonerated from the charges of committing arson on multiple motorcycles in a local housing project.

Arson at Kampung Muhibbah People’s Housing Project (PPR)

Mohd Noor was previously accused of setting fire to 34 motorcycles in the parking lot at the Kampung Muhibbah People’s Housing Project (PPR) situated in Bukit Jalil. The allegation dates back to an unfortunate incident that occurred two years ago, which led to the subsequent legal proceedings against him.

Insufficient Evidence Leads to Acquittal

On hearing the prosecution’s case against Mohd Noor, Sessions Court Judge Norina Zainol Abidin ultimately ruled that the prosecution had failed to provide compelling and substantial evidence. The evidence presented was termed insufficient to establish a prima facie case against the ex-lorry driver. Therefore, the court decided that Mohd Noor was not guilty of the charge and thereby acquitted him.

Decision Sparks Discussion

The decision has sparked discussions within legal circles, highlighting the high benchmark necessary for the prosecution to make a successful conviction. It is a reminder that every individual has the right to a fair trial and in our criminal justice system, any doubt about the guilt of the accused must be resolved in their favor.

What comes next?

Reflecting on the recent court ruling, it remains uncertain what lies ahead for Mohd Saiful Adey Mohd Noor. Having been acquitted, the next chapter of his life is a personal matter. As for the victims of the 34 motorcycle arson incident, this court decision will likely reopen old wounds and raise questions about their quest for justice.
