KUALA LUMPUR: A key witness in the corruption trial of Datuk Seri Najib Razak agreed that there was possibility former SRC International Sdn Bhd CEO Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil may have forged his signatures on bank documents, the High Court heard.

The forgery was allegedly to facilitate bank transfers involving millions of ringgit from SRC's account to its two subsidiaries - Gandingan Mentari Sdn Bhd and Ihsan Perdana Sdn Bhd.

Datuk Suboh Md Yassin, 68, who was under cross-examination, agreed with lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah’s suggestion that he could not have consented to the transfer of funds.

The witness was earlier shown copies of his own signatures on bank documents where the defence had used a projector machine to demonstrate its point using the superimposition technique.

Several hardcopies and scanned documents were compared.

Shafee then suggested that the hardcopies had fake signatures that were signed by someone else and not Suboh.

Shafee: I say that Nik Faisal forged your signature, and gave it to the bank?

Suboh: Maybe.

The cross-examination continues before Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali on Tuesday (July 2).
