Shahrizat accepts court's decision on husband

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 26 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil today said that she accepted the High Court's decision in dismissing her husband Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Salleh Ismail's application to strike out two criminal breach of trust (CBT) charges, involving RM49.7 million, against him.

Shahrizat, who is Wanita Umno chief, said the decision, however, would not dampen their hopes and spirits to find the truth.

"My family and I accept the decision, although we are very saddened, we will leave it to Allah," she told a press conference at her home here today.

Shahrizat said her husband, who is National Feedlot Corporation Sdn Bhd (NFCorp) executive chairman, would discuss with his lawyer, Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, about the next cause of action.

High Court judge Datuk Mohd Azman Husin dismissed Mohamad Salleh's application after finding that the two charges were not defective and there were issues to be ironed out at a trial.
