KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 26): Former premier Datuk Seri Najib Razak's SRC International Sdn Bhd trial continues its 84th day with Putra Perdana Construction Sdn Bhd representative Datuk Rosman Abdullah (pictured) expected to take the witness stand, following yesterday's postponement.

Rosman, who is also Putra Perdana Bhd chairperson, is the fifth defence witness and is expected to testify on the purported transfer of funds from SRC into its accounts and then into the premier's accounts based on the testimonies so far.

Najib, who is also Pekan Member of Parliament, is facing charges of criminal breach of trust, money laundering and abuse of power in relation to the RM42 million SRC funds.

Yesterday, the defence confirmed that it will be calling former attorney general Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali, former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad and present MACC chief Latheefa Koya.

The defence had also indicated that it will be calling Mohd Nasharudin Amir, the MACC investigating officer for the 1Malaysia Development Bhd probe, despite judge Mohd Nazlan Ghazali's ruling that the witness cannot be compelled by the court to give a pre-testimony interview.

It remains uncertain as to how many more defence witnesses are slated.
