KUALA LUMPUR: The former deputy prime minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has used Yayasan Akalbudi Foundation`s funds to pay RM107,509.55 road tax and insurance for 20 luxury vehicles, the court told today.

Allianz General Insurance agent Ahmad Izhan Abd Rashid, 40, said the payment was received through three Affin Bank cheques belonging to the foundation from Ahmad Zahid’s personal assistant, Mazlina Mazlan, Free Malaysia Today (FMT) reported.

According to the news portal, Ahmad, the 14th prosecution witness, said a cheque dated Jan 22, 2015 was for RM24,980.55, another dated April 15 was for RM43,645, and a third dated Sept 22 was for RM38,884.
