RM13mil contribution for mosque, tahfiz school not bribe, says Zahid

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi told the High Court on Wednesday (May 25) that a RM13 million contribution given by a businessman to Yayasan Akalbudi (YAB) was not a bribe but was for building a mosque and tahfiz school in Bagan Datuk, Perak.

Ahmad Zahid, 69, said he had never promised any MyEG projects to the businessman, textile wholesaler Junaith Asharab Md Shariff, as an inducement for the contribution because MyEG did not come under the Home Ministry but was under the Finance Ministry.
