A company director of a visa processing center (OSC) and work permits told the High Court yesterday he had paid a RM2 million bribe to the former deputy prime minister and home minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to operate OSCs in Nepal and Pakistan.
Director Azlan Shah Jaffril, 48, said this when responding to a question from lawyer Datuk R. S. Sodhi during cross-examination in a civil suit brought by former director of PRSB, Nor Rosnani Ibrahim as plaintiff, against Azlan Shah and his company PRSB, as defendants, before High Court Judicial Commissioner Ong Chee Kwan, the Malaymail reported.
Sodhi: I put it to you that the three offences Ahmad Zahid was charged with were in respect of receiving RM2 million in bribes from you?
Azlan Shah: Yes, that was what he (Ahmad Zahid) has been charged (with).
Azlan Shah also told the court that he will be a prosecution witness in Ahmad Zahid’s ongoing trial for bribery.
