The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is not transparent and honest after all in the trial of Datuk Seri Najib Razak pertaining to SRC International Sdn Bhd funds.
A Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) officer has admitted at the Kuala Lumpur High Court today, Thursday, July 11, 2019, that MACC was selective in its submission of digital evidences so vital to the trial.
BNM’s financial intelligence and enforcement department analyst Shuzairizman Shuib submitted a bundle of digital evidences today to comply with a court order on April 17, 2019.
The evidences were transcripts of communication details of several personalities involved in Najib’s case such as Ambank’s wholesale banking department relationship manager Joana Yu and her two subordinates, Krystle Yap and Daniel Lee, former SRC International chief executive officer (CEO) Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil and businessman Jho Low.
Shuzairizman testified before Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali that the bundle that he submitted today contained less than half the digital evidences that he gathered for the trial.
The prosecution’s 46th witness admitted during cross examination that he had handed over all digital evidences and his full analytical report to the case investigating officer, one namely Rosli, after he had completed his investigation.
Shuzairizman revealed that he had also consulted with Rosli on what evidences to disclose in the court.
To a question by the defence, he admitted that Rosli had filtered the communication data extracted from a Blackberry that purportedly belonged to Joana Yu.
The communication data is believed was between Joana Yu and Jho Low.
Shuzairizman was involved in BNM raiding party that raided the Ambank branch in Jalan Raja Chulan on July 6, 2015.
Shuzairizman job was to collect digital evidences from digital devices belonging Joana Yu, Krystle Yap and Daniel Lee.
Joana Yu is a key witness to the trial as she was in-charge of all dealings with Najib’s private and SRC International accounts in Ambank.
Najib currently faces seven corruption charges pertaining to SRC International funds.
The charges were 3 each for CBT under Section 409 of the Penal Code and money laundering under Section 4 of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities (AMLA) Act 2001, and 1 for abuse of power under Section 23 of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Act (MACC) 2009.
