Acquitted Zahid Hamidi says grateful justice served in court after public opinion punishment
Zahid is still standing trial for another corruption case where he is accused of 47 criminal breach of trust, corruption and money laundering charges involving tens of millions of ringgit belonging to Yayasan Akalbudi, the charity organisation he founded.
(MMO) – Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi praised the High Court for acquitting him of 40 bribery charges in his foreign visa system trial today.
Walking out of the courtroom, the former minister said justice has been served even though he had already been punished beforehand in the court of public opinion.
“I have been humiliated, disgraced, called all sorts of names and even punished beforehand by the court of public opinion, but alhamdullilah, today we have witnessed that the law has been upheld for the sake of justice and I am grateful,” the Bagan Datuk MP told reporters after his acquittal.
