Syed Saddiq acted in best interests of Armada, says defence

THE High Court today was told that former Angkatan Bersatu Anak Muda (Armada) chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman and former assistant treasurer Rafiq Hakim Razali had at all times acted in the best interests of Armada and in accordance with their responsibilities under Bersatu’s constitution. 

Syed Saddiq’s counsel Gobind Singh Deo said it was not in dispute that Rafiq had withdrawn RM1 million from Armada’s CIMB account for the purpose of distributing aid during the Covid-19 pandemic, Ramadan and Hari Raya, and for the welfare of people impacted during the movement control order in 2020.
