Former Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) senior deputy director Sabudin Mohd Salleh was freed by the Sessions Court here today on a charge with accepting bribes, amounting to RM150,000, without calling for his defence.

Judge Suzana Hussin acquitted and discharged Sabudin, 59, of the charge after finding that the prosecution had failed to prove a prima facie case against him at the end of the prosecution case.

“After hearing the testimony by all the prosecution witnesses and examining the submissions from both parties, the court found that the prosecution failed to prove a prima facie case against the accused.

“Therefore, the accused is acquitted and discharged,” she said.

A total of 10 prosecution witnesses testified at the trial.
