A witness told the High Court in Kuala Lumpur that his construction company issued three cheques totalling RM1,011,520 under the name of Lewis & Co, a trustee of Yayasan Akalbudi belonging to Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Cergas Murni Sdn Bhd director Paul Latimer, 78, said part of the sum was "protection money” for gangsters while the remainder was for his firm's operations which included payment to sub-contractors and suppliers during the construction of a third bridge in Klang from 2014 to 2017.
