Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi was slapped with another charge at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court on Wednesday for criminal breach of trust.

The Umno president was accused of using RM260,000 of Yayasan Akal Budi funds to make a payment to TS Consultancy and Resources on Dec 23, 2016.
Dr Ahmad Zahid, who is the chairman of the foundation, was charged with committing breach of trust (CBT) under Section 409 of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum of 20 years' jail, whipping and a fine, if convicted.

The former deputy prime minister pleaded not guilty to the charge.
