The Penang High Court has fixed March 31 to decide on the prosecution’s appeal against Mohamad Sabu, who was acquitted of criminal defamation against several policemen and their families over a communist attack at the Bukit Kepong police station in 1950, according to news agency Bernama.

On July 8, 2015, the Butterworth Session Courts acquitted Mat Sabu of the charges after finding the prosecution did not provide a prima facie case against Mat Sabu.

According to Bernama, Penang High Court judge Lim Chong Fong fixed March 31 for decision after hearing arguments from Penang Prosecution Unit chief Razali Che Ani and defence lawyers representing Mohamad, better known as Mat Sabu.
