Will he be cleared of all charges?

Malaysiakini - Dr M's political secretary implicated in Isa's corruption charges:

Zahid Md Arip, the political secretary of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been implicated in corruption charges against former Felda chairperson Isa Abdul Samad.

Zahid, who was Isa's former special officer, is mentioned in nine of the 10 charges against the latter for receiving RM3 million in kickbacks from Felda's purchase of a hotel in Kuching.

According to the charges, Zahid is said to have been the intermediary between Ikhawn Zaidel, a director in Gagasan Abadi Properties Sdn Bhd, and Isa.

The bribes were meant to facilitate Felda's purchase of the Merdeka Hotel & Suites in Kuching when Isa was the agency's chairperson.

The bribes were allegedly given between July 21, 2014 and Dec 11, 2015.

Zahid had previously been arrested by the MACC in August 2017 over the hotel deal and was remanded for eight days.

He declined to comment when contacted by Malaysiakini.

"I have no comments (to make). I feel that it is inappropriate for me to comment while the case is still in the courts," he said.

Zahid is a supreme council member in Mahathir's Bersatu Pribumi.

  1. Wakakakaka……

    How about looking at this issue just like the last Oct meeting of the members of the majlis tertinggi umno with mamak.

    After that meeting that tengku palsu IS still been charged for multiple undertable corruptions.

    This moron WOULD be history in this implicated corruption charges.

    & yet u want to play up this issue as if mamak would shield him just bcoz he is is a supreme council member in Mahathir's Bersatu Pribumi!

    Why not JUST saying he was the middle man of the middle man aka mamak, since he is the the political secretary of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad!

  2. So eager to snipe at the Pakatan Government....what a Dedak eater.
