Malaysia: Court sets April 12 next year for hearing of Zahid’s corruption case on foreign visa system

The hearing of  the corruption case involving former Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is facing 40 charges of allegedly receiving gratification in the implementation of Malaysia’s foreign visa system (VLN), will begin on April 12 next year at the High Court here.

Deputy public prosecutor Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin said said the hearing was earlier fixed last October 12, but postponed due to the implementation of the conditional movement control order (CMCO) to curb the spread of Covid-19.

“An email was received from the court to inform that, as ordered by High Court judge Datuk Noorin Badaruddin, the hearing dates for the case have been set for April 2021, from 12 to 15, 19, 20 to 22 and 26 to 28.

“The court will also continue to hear the case in May on May 3 to 6, 24, 25, 27 and 31 and on June 1 to 3, 2021,” he said through Whatsapp.
