KUALA LUMPUR – High Court Judge Collin Lawrence Sequerah had recalled Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to resume his Yayasan Akalbudi foundation corruption trial today.

Earlier this morning, the judge had allowed trial involving Zahid to be postponed after the accused made an application to postpone the case. According to Zahid’s lawyer, the President of UMNO needed to attend a meeting with the Prime Minister to discuss about the formation of the Cabinet with the new Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

However, the Prime Minister’s Office had denied the meeting in a statement. It said that the Prime Minister did not schedule any meeting with politicians today.

Following that statement, Collin had decided to carry on with the trial at 4.30 pm today. -MalaysiaGazette
