Babu in court to present Bond plea

The move by Babu come in a day after Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji said he will revisit the ruling that granted the lawmaker bail.

DDP Haji expressed his displeasure on how the legislator’s ruling was made. He says they have written to the Judicial Service Commission to complain.

“We are going for a revision, we have agreed as DPP, and we have also written to the JSC to complain, because of that ruling. I mean, I cannot fathom it,” said DDP Haji.

“I have never heard, first of all, of bail terms that you are asked to pay in instalments, and then secondly, my understanding is that once you pay bail, it goes to the ex-checker. So how will we be able to access the money to go and pay for the injured party,” he added.
