Syed Saddiq says prepared to clear name, will discuss with Muda over GE15 candidacy
Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman said today he accepts the High Court’s decision today and is ready to enter his defence over the four charges of criminal breach of trust (CBT), misappropriation of funds and money laundering.
(MMO) – The former youth and sports minister vowed to clear his name, insisting that his spirits have not been dampened in the run-up to the 15th general election (GE15).
“This is my opportunity to prove my innocence by giving my sworn testimony in court. I joined politics to clean the scene and fight for the people’s rights so despite all that’s happened my spirits and principles are still strong,” the incumbent Muar MP told members of the media after his hearing.
“I will be calling sworn witnesses for my defence to tell my side of the story so that justice can win and justice is fair.”
“I’d like to bring this out to my party because I am a party man and principals come first in politics.”
