A five-bench judge ruled that the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji had no legal basis to indict her.
The judges further ruled that the manner in which the Directorate of Criminal investigations (DCI) obtained details of her bank account was illegal.
The DPP now says that he will appeal the ruling.
In the case, the Prosecution were accusing the DCJ of abuse of office, bribery and failure to pay taxes in relation to the collapsed Imperial Bank while the DCJ opposed the prosecution pointing to witch-hunt and stating that any complains on her should go through the Judicial Service Commission (JSC).
