KUALA LUMPUR: Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman has been ordered by the High Court here to enter his defence on charges of abetting in criminal breach of trust (CBT), misappropriation of assets and money laundering.

Justice Azhar Abdul Hamid said the prosecution had established a prima facie case against the Muda president and former youth and sports minister.

Syed Saddiq, 29, is charged with abetting the Bersatu youth wing’s former assistant treasurer, Rafiq Hakim, in the commission of CBT of RM1 million at CIMB Bank Bhd on Jalan Stesen Sentral 2 here on March 6, 2020.

As the then Bersatu Youth chief, Syed Saddiq was entrusted with control of its funds.
