Yazid, in acquitting the Umno president
of graft charges today, said this was unlike how prosecutors had, in
vivid detail, explained how the money was delivered to the wife of
former premier Najib Abdul Razak, Rosmah Mansor, in an unrelated trial.
said all three key witnesses who testified against Zahid claimed that
they paid bribes to the Bagan Datuk MP in cash and that the money was
delivered inside a brown envelope.
"Initially, the monthly amount
was SG$200,000 (RM650,000) but was subsequently increased to SG$300,000
and finally SG$520,000. For months of default, the amount would then be
doubled up for the following months.
"For instance, if they did not pay in January, the amount will be
paid together in February. Again, they were all placed in an envelope.
comparison to Rosmah's case, the first delivery of RM5 million in cash
on Dec 20, 2016, was split into two bags of RM2.5 million each. For the
second delivery of RM1.5 million, the monies were put into two
"In Zahid's case, the prosecution did not produce any sample envelope. No evidence led to show the size of the envelope used.
simply cannot imagine what envelope (and) in what size could fit the
SG$600,000 in cash which was equivalent to around RM1.6 million at the
material time," he said.
BrownCheetah9736 : If the basis is the size of the envelope to fit in SGD$600,000, then the judge is sadly mistaken. Singapore has $1,000 bills which is only 600 pieces of note.
The prosecution, who hasn’t done a very good job, has to and MUST appeal the verdict.
BrownKijang8300 : Exactly. 6 bundles of 100 notes. Easy.
PW Cheng : So end of the day , its the prosecutor that had failed the rakyat. TT is abosolutely correct when he commented on the quality of the prosecutors from AGC stable. Zakir naik and Hadi is having all their wishes comming true.
