The prosecution has failed to prove a prima facie case in all 12 charges of criminal breach of trust (CBT) against Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi involving Yayasan Akalbudi funds, the Kuala Lumpur High Court was told on Tuesday (Sept 7).

Defence counsel Hamidi Mohd Noh said the accused's former aide had control and custody over the cheque books belonging to the foundation and the former deputy prime minister.
