The notice of appeal, dated Dec 6, 2017, was signed by deputy public prosecutor Nurakmal Farhan Aziz, while a letter dated Dec 8 from High Court deputy registrar Zanariah A Bakar was sent to Bilqis, informed her of the appeal.

Lawyer Latheefa Koya told Malaysiakini that Bilqis informed them of the notice of appeal today.
