KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 9 — The money-laundering charges against former deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi have not yet been proven to have come from illegal activities, and therefore Zahid should be cleared up from this, his lawyer argued in court today.

Ahmad Zahid’s lead defence lawyer Hisyam Teh Poh Teik argued 25 of the 27 money laundering charges against his client must be dismissed as the money come from donations , not from unlawful means, and also because the prosecution could not prove otherwise.

Hisyam also argued that the prosecution had failed to show evidence that the funds involved were from unlawful activities.
