KUALA LUMPUR: The three-year suspension meted out by the Umno disciplinary board against Kota Baru division chief Datuk Zaid Ibrahim for contempt has been halved. 

He will now only serve his sentence for 18 months. 

Deputy president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced this after the party's supreme council meeting here yesterday. 

He said the council also decided to suspend former Kota Baru committee member Mohd Nawi Mamat for three years. 

The other case was former Bandar Tun Razak division chief Datuk Amil Salleh whose appeal against his three-year suspension was rejected. 

These were among nine appeal cases brought to the council yesterday.  

The others were connected with the money politics case relating to suspended vice-president Tan Sri Mohamed Isa Abdul Samad. 

They were his political secretary Mohd Salim Shariff, former Pandan division deputy chief Jamaluddin Ropa, former Teluk Kemang division Youth chief Zubir Jamal, Raub division chief Datuk Shahiruddin Abdul Moin and Kluang division member Noor Ehsanuddin Mohd Harun Narashid.
