Zahid Hamidi Acquitted, But Not Off The Hook

Umno President Dato’ Sri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi was acquitted of 40 bribery charges last Friday, when the Shah Alam High Court ruled that the prosecution had failed to show a prima facie case against the politician. While his legal issues are far from over, the victory no doubt gives his supporters a morale boost and gives him a lifeline ahead of GE15. We discuss the prospects for Zahid Hamidi and implications of his acquittal for Umno with Dr Bridget Welsh of the University of Nottingham-Asia Research Institute Malaysia.
