Datasonic exec: RM6m for Zahid wouldn't have happened if not DPM

An executive of the Datasonic Group Berhad, the company which supplies microchips for Malaysian passports, said he had recommended a RM6 million contribution to Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in April 2017 due to "long-term" considerations and would not have done so if the latter was not the deputy prime minister and home minister at the time.

Testifying as the prosecution's 34th witness in Zahid's corruption trial at the Kuala LumpurHigh Court today, Datasonic deputy managing director Chew Ben Ben said he had proposed the donation after being invited to Zahid's official residence in Putrajaya in the middle of April 2017.
