Malaysia’s opposition leader Ahmad Hamidi, was today hit with 45 charges in a 26 million dollars corruption case, a new blow to his beleaguered party which lost power in landmark elections this year.

The former deputy premier and ally of scandal-mired former-leader Najib Razak, is accused of crimes that include accepting bribes to award government contracts and money-laundering. The 65-year-old pleaded not guilty to all charges, and will stand trial.
