'I accept court's decision, will work with legal team on defence', says Zahid

KUALA LUMPUR: We will accept the judge's decision and will continue to do so when I enter my defence, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Speaking to the media outside the courtroom on Monday (Jan 24), the Umno president said that he and his legal team have accepted High Court judge Justice Collin Lawrence Sequerah's decision for Ahmad Zahid to enter his defence on all 47 corruption charges involving millions of ringgit from charitable foundation Yayasan Akalbudi (YAB).

“This is the ultimate decision of the judge and our compliance will not cease. I and my lawyers will do what is required under the procedures set by the court,” he said in a short statement outside the court complex here before leaving around 10.40am.

Earlier on Monday (Jan 24), Justice Collin Lawrence Sequerah ordered Ahmad Zahid to enter his defence on all 47 charges involving millions of ringgit from his charity foundation Yayasan Akalbudi (YAB).
