Celebrity Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor and husband Muhammad Haris Mohd Ismail have been discharged not amounting to an acquittal (DNAA) on three charges of breaching standard operating procedures of the conditional movement control order.

Deputy public prosecutor Nor Azizah Aling told the court that the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) has considered the representation submitted by the accused regarding the case, following which magistrate Mohd Firdaus Saleh made the ruling.

Nor Azizah requested that the case be given a DNAA to enable other actions to be taken against the duo.

Lawyer Muhammad Shafie Abdullah, who represented the couple, said the prosecution has withdrawn all charges against Noor Neelofa and her husband.

“A compound process will take place either today or tomorrow. We will be back on December 21, so the DNAA can be converted to DNA (discharged and acquitted).

“We are quite happy. Although these charges can be fought (in court), but they will drag on. Noor Neelofa is pregnant, and it is not suitable for us to run this case.”

Lawyers Haresh Mahadevan and Ramzani Idris also represented the couple, who sent a representation to the AGC on October 21, seeking for the charges against them to be withdrawn.

On May 20, they pleaded not guilty to violating a regulation under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures Within Infected Local Area) (Conditional Movement Control) (No.4) (Amendment) (No.12) Regulations 2021, which carries an imprisonment of up to six months or maximum fine of RM50,000, or both, if found guilty.
