Vehicle insurance policies and road tax of former deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi totalling RM107, 509.55 was paid using money from charity foundation Yayasan Akalbudi, the High Court heard.

Ahmad Izhan Abd Rashid, who handled Zahid’s vehicle insurance and road tax-related matters, said between Jan 2015 and Sept 2015, he received three Affin Bank cheques from the latter’s former personal assistant Major Mazlina.

He said Zahid took 39 insurance policies with him for 20 vehicles, including 18 luxury brand cars and high-powered motorcycles, among others, a BMW X5, a Mini Cooper S, an Audi Q7, a Toyota Land Cruiser and a BMW R1200 GS motorcycle.

He said each time after renewing the vehicle insurance policies and road tax, he would go to Zahid’s house in Country Heights, Kajang, to hand over the renewed policies and related documents to Zahid through either his worker or maid.


KUALA LUMPUR: Vehicle insurance policies and road tax of former deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi totalling RM107, 509.55 was paid using money from charity foundation Yayasan Akalbudi, the High Court heard.

This was revealed by Allianz General Insurance agent Ahmad Izhan Abd Rashid during Zahid’s trial involving 47 criminal breach of trust (CBT), corruption and money laundering charges involving millions of ringgit of Yayasan Akalbudi funds.




Izhan, 40, who handled Zahid’s vehicle insurance and road tax-related matters, said between Jan 2015 and Sept 2015, he received three Affin Bank cheques from the latter’s former personal assistant Major Mazlina.

He said the cheques dated Jan 22, April 15 and Sept 22, 2015, which were made under his name, belonged to Yayasan Akalbudi.

The amount of the cheques were RM24,980.55, RM43,654 and RM38,884 respectively.

Izhan who was the 14th prosecution witness said Major Mazlina told him that Zahid had agreed to the amount he fixed for the renewal of the policies and road tax.

“The cheques were under my name because after I deposit the cheques, I would withdraw a sum of money to pay for the vehicle’s road tax to the Road Transport Department (RTD) and a sum of money would be transferred into the account of Maya Consultant Services company for insurance premium payment for the vehicles.

“I am the sole owner of the company,” he said.

The witness said in 2014, he was introduced to Zahid by a friend named Ali and they met at Zahid’s house.

He said he introduced himself as an insurance agent from Allianz to Zahid and was appointed to handle matters regarding the policies taken up by the Bagan Datoh member of parliament since then.

He said Zahid took 39 insurance policies with him for 20 vehicles, including 18 luxury brand cars and high-powered motorcycles, among others, a BMW X5, a Mini Cooper S, an Audi Q7, a Toyota Land Cruiser and a BMW R1200 GS motorcycle.

He said each time after renewing the vehicle insurance policies and road tax, he would go to Zahid’s house in Country Heights, Kajang, to hand over the renewed policies and related documents to Zahid through either his worker or maid.

Izhan also testified that the value of the insurance premium payable in the insurance policy was different from the value in the Allianz official receipt because there was a deduction of commission for payments made by him as an agent to Allianz.

“I would receive 10 per cent commission from the premium amount of insurance paid by customers,” he said.

Previously, Allianz branch manager Fang Suat Lim testified that Zahid took four types of policies namely private car policy, motorcycle policy, enhanced road warrior policy and bike warrior policy.

The policies were registered under Zahid’s name, that of his wife Datin Seri Hamidah Khamis and their children Nurulizwani, Datuk Nurulhidayah and Ahmad Shafiq Hazieq, the witness said.

Hearing continues before judge Collin Lawrence Sequerah.
