KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Suboh Md Yassin told the High Court that he had signed two directors’ resolutions to appoint Ihsan Perdana Sdn Bhd as SRC's corporate social responsibility (CSR) partner, while he was “on the run” in Bangkok.
The former SRC International Sdn Bhd director said he did so, after he was instructed by SRC CEO Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil.
“Nik Faisal contacted me and informed me that there was unfinished business regarding corporate social responsibility,” he said here on Monday (July 1).
According to the witness, a Thai man named "Kun" was sent to him to hand over the documents.
“During the handover, Nik Faisal’s signature was already on the papers, but they were undated.
“After I put down my signature, I handed it back to Kun for him to deliver it using DHL service,” he said.
Suboh also testified that he signed a remittance order between SRC and its two subsidiaries - Gandingan Mentari Sdn Bhd and Ihsan Perdana - based on Nik Faisal’s orders.
The banking transaction involved three transactions between SRC, Gandingan Mentari and Ihsan Perdana between Dec 24, 2014, and Feb 6, 2015, totalling RM50mil.
“I was asked by Nik Faisal to sign the document. I followed it because he is the CEO and he is responsible in financial and administration matters.
“The transaction between Gandingan Mentari and Ihsan Perdana was supposedly for CSR,” he added.
Last month, Suboh told the court that he ran to Bangkok during the height of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) investigations into SRC.
He also testified that he stayed in Abu Dhabi for a week before returning to Bangkok. He returned to Malaysia after the May 2018 General Election.
The witness was testifying in the corruption trial of Datuk Seri Najib Razak involving misappropriation of RM42mil in SRC funds.
The hearing continues Monday afternoon before Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali.
