The jury in the trial of a former race equality charity boss accused of fraud has retired to consider its verdict.
Naz Malik, 65, is accused of swindling around £15,000 from the All Wales Ethnic Minority Association (Awema).
He denies three charges, two concerning cheques totalling nearly £12,000 which he claims covered his expenses at the defunct Swansea-based organisation.
Mr Malik also claims that a life insurance policy for his wife was paid for by a "salary sacrifice".
