Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said today that funds from welfare foundation Yayasan Akal Budi were used to clear credit card debts, but claimed that this was due to a mistake by his officer.

According to Zahid, the credit card bills were handed to his officer who "mistakenly used funds from Yayasan Akal Budi" to clear the debts – which required the former deputy prime minister to reimburse the fund using his personal money.
