DPM Zahid backs existence of previous Agong’s order for Najib to serve remaining sentence at home

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has now been revealed to be the “critical” witness who filed a testimony in support of Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s legal bid to compel the federal government and the Pardons Board to produce a purported “supplementary order” from the previous Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

(MMO) – In his application for leave to seek judicial review filed on April 1, Najib claimed the former King issued the order during the January 29 meeting of the board, for the former to serve the remainder of his reduced sentence under house arrest.

Ahmad Zahid said Tengku Zafrul had affirmed the order’s existence during a meeting at the former’s house in Country Heights, Kajang on January 30.

“Upon querying further, he subsequently showed me a copy of the said Addendum Order on his phone which he photographed from an original copy as shown to him by His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong XVI.

“I verily believe that for the sufficient period of time I sighted and read the Addendum Order, and I clearly saw the entire contents and that it forms part of the pardon process of the applicant which is supplementary to the Main Order both dated January 29,” Ahmad Zahid’s affidavit that was filed on April 9 read.
