KUALA LUMPUR: The prosecution in the Yayasan Akalbudi’s graft case has requested for a discharge not amounting to an acquittal (DNAA) against Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

In proceedings on Monday (Sept 4), deputy public prosecutor Datuk Mohd Dusuki Mokhtar listed 11 reasons for it; these reasons include ensuring that no miscarriage of justice is committed and to make way for more comprehensive investigations by the authorities.

However, Ahmad Zahid’s counsel Datuk Hisyam Teh Poh Teik has argued for a full discharge instead.

He argued that the deputy prime minister should be granted with a discharge amounting to an acquittal (DAA).

The court is now standing down as Justice Datuk Collin Lawrence Sequerah decides on the matter.

Ahmad Zahid is facing 47 charges for criminal breach of trust, corruption and money laundering involving Yayasan Akalbudi (YAB) funds.
