Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil may have scanned and forged the signature

(nthqibord) – Datuk Suboh Yassin has testified at Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s trial that he never knew about SRC International Sdn Bhd’s subsidiary Gandingan Mentari Sdn Bhd’s purported investment venture in South America in 2014.

The prosecution’s 42nd witness appeared to be in a shock when he was shown by the defence a turnkey agreement dated July 25, 2014 between Gandingan Mentari and Putra Perdana Construction Sdn Bhd.

The agreement, purportedly to invest into a business venture in Brazil, was signed by Suboh as the director of Gandingan Mentari.

Putra Perdana Construction was headed by one, Datuk Rosman Abdullah.

“I have never seen this document before,” testified Suboh before Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali today, Tuesday, July 2, 2019.

Suboh testimony raises suspicion that former SRC International chief executive officer (CEO) and director Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil may have scanned and forged his signature on the agreement.

On Monday, June 17, 2019, former SRC International chairman-director, Tan Sri Ismee Ismail testified that SRC formed Gandingan Mentari as a special purpose vehicle (SPV) with a sole purpose to deal with a land in Bukit Jalil.

He said Gandingan Mentari was not supposed to do any other business.

Another point to note is that on the same date when the agreement was signed, Suboh had allegedly ordered a sum of RM170 million from Gandingan Mentari to be remitted to Putra Perdana Construction for the investment purpose.

Najib’s defence team could drill Suboh on the money tomorrow.

Yesterday, Monday July 1, 2019, Suboh testified that Nik Faisal had scanned and forged his signatures on 17 letters of transfer instruction (LTIs) pertaining to transactions of money involving SRC International and several other companies.

Today when asked by the defence on whether the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had interrogated him on the forgery, he replied: “I can’t remember.”
