The Court of Appeal upheld the death sentence of six men convicted of murdering Deputy Public Prosecutor Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais nine years ago.

A three-bench panel consisting of Judges Hadhariah Syed Ismail, Ahmad Zaidi Ibrahim and Azmi Ariffin unanimously dismissed the appeal filed by the six men to set aside the decision of the High Court on July 10, 2020, which convicted and sentenced them to death for the murder.

In the court's decision on Thursday (March 14), Judge Hadhariah said after examining all the grounds of judgment by the High Court judge and the evidence presented in court, the Court of Appeal found that the High Court judge did not err in terms of law and facts.
