KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's Attorney General's Chambers on Monday filed a notice of appeal in the graft case involving Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who was acquitted of 40 corruption charges last week.

Among the main reasons why the prosecution's case against Ahmad Zahid failed was because the three main witnesses lacked credibility, the judge said. The court also doubted the credibility of a ledger - which was tendered as evidence - as there was some missing data regarding the inflow and outflow of funds allegedly delivered to Ahmad Zahid.
