Malaysia: Rosmah trial: Defence accuses witness of contradictory testimony, seeks MACC statements

Lawyers for Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor accused a key witness in her corruption trial today of providing testimony conflicting with previous statements.

Defence counsel Datuk Akberdin Abdull Kader expressed suspicion that Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd former managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin’s court testimony contradicted the statement he gave to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) about the case involving an RM1.25 billion solar power project in Sarawak.

Akberdin said the defence’s suspicion was aroused when they produced a bank statement showing he withdrew RM1.25 million from his bank account as well as several other transactions ranging from RM150,000 to RM300,000.

The lawyer suggested that Saidi had withdrawn the RM1.25 million to pay for the transactions, which included house and land payments among others, which he then forgot.
