Prosecution closes its case in Zahid’s foreign visa system graft trial


SHAH ALAM (Aug 11): The prosecution in former home minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s trial involving 40 charges for receiving bribes in the foreign visa system (VLN) matter has closed its case after calling 18 witnesses. Once the submissions on both sides are done, Yazid will determine whether a prima facie case has been put forth by the prosecution against Zahid. Among the list of witnesses are former immigration director general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali, who is also the current head of the National Financial Crime Centre (NFCC). In this trial, Zahid, 69, is facing 33 charges of receiving the S$13.56 million (about RM42 million) bribes from Ultra Kirana Sdn Bhd (UKSB) as an inducement. Parti Warisan president and Semporna MP Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal declined to comment when questioned by a Malay language portal.
