The court convened at 9.24 am with Judge Datuk Mohd Yazid Mustafa on the bench.
Ahmad Zahid, 69, had arrived at the court at 8.50 am, accompanied by about 100 of his supporters attired in black and white from the main entrance of the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Courts complex to the lobby of the building.
The UMNO president was also accompanied by UMNO deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan and Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Dr Shamsul Anuar Nasarah.
The prosecution team and Ahmad Zahid's defence team had begun arriving at the court complex from 8.15 am.
If the court finds that the prosecution had established a prima facie case, Ahmad Zahid will be ordered to enter his defence. Otherwise, the Bagan Datuk Member of Parliament will be acquitted.
The prosecution is represented by deputy public prosecutors Datuk Raja Rozela Raja Toran, Datuk Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin, Abdul Malik Ayob, Zander Lim Wai Keong and B. Thavani while lawyers Datuk Hisyam Teh Poh Teik, Datuk Ahmad Zaidi Zainal and Hamidi Mohd Noh represent Ahmad Zahid.
About 100 local and foreign journalists arrived at the court complex as early as 7 am, while Ahmad Zahid's supporters gathered at the main gate at around 8 am, holding up a banner with the slogan 'Solidariti 4 AZH'. - BERNAMA
