Malaysia: In Zahid’s trial, prosecution draws parallels with Najib’s RM42m SRC case over failure to check if millions received were illegal funds
06 Oct 2021

Former deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s alleged failure to check if the millions of ringgit of purported “donations” received were from lawful or illegal sources is quite similar to the situation in former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s criminal case, the High Court heard today.

The prosecution had highlighted the similarities between the two court cases in order to show the High Court why Ahmad Zahid should continue to be prosecuted and should enter his defence against money-laundering charges.
