-A +A

KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 24): The High Court will hear submissions in the SRC International Sdn Bhd trial today, to compel a Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer to be interviewed before he takes the witness stand to testify in court.

MACC assistant commissioner Mohd Nasharudin Amir, who was the investigation officer in former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak's 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) case, was slated to be the seventh witness for the defence in the trial.

However, Najib's lawyers told the court that the witness was uncooperative and had declined to be interviewed by the defence prior to taking the stand.

Lead counsel Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah told Justice Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali that the officer had called off a meeting scheduled for Feb 15.

Meanwhile, an update on the document expert appointed by the defence is expected today.

The court was told that the report by the expert will be completed latest by Feb 26, after which the defence will decide on whether the expert will be called in as a witness.
