MACC officer unaware of broken car window
MACC assistant enforcement officer Faizal Ismail told the Sessions Court that he did not know when asked by defence counsel Afifuddin Hafifi, if he was aware that a window on one of three cars seized was broken. He also said he was unaware if MACC had investigated the broken window incident.
Faizal said on Dec 25, 2011, he was assigned to take pictures of the three cars — a Mitsubishi Grandis, Mitsubishi ASX and Mitsubishi Triton — at Shamsubahrin’s house in Bukit Jelutong, and that other MACC officers had taken the cars back to the MACC office.
He also said he did not know if MACC officers had confiscated Shamsubahrin’s handphone.
Faizal was testifying in the trial of Shamsubahrin, who is charged with cheating NFCorp director Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Salleh Ismail of RM1.75 million.
He is also facing 17 counts of money laundering, involving the same amount.
Another witness from MACC, enforcement officer S. Faridah Selamat, said she had no knowledge if MACC had prepared a list of personal items taken from Shamsubahrin.
When asked by Afifuddin who would know if there was a list prepared, she replied that the investigating officer for the case would know.
Maxis Mobile Sdn Bhd principal technician Zulkarnaen Haseri testified that the telecommunications provider did not keep contents of voice data or text messages.
“We do not keep content. We keep only records of transactions made from a telephone number,” he told the court when questioned by Afifuddin.
He said that they were able to provide records of transactions dating back five years. Asked if Maxis could keep content of text messages if need be, Zulkarnaen said he was not from the information technology department.
Afifuddin: So, the IT department personnel would be the best persons to answer questions on SMS (short message service) records?
When questioned by defence counsel K.K. Lim, Zulkarnaen agreed that there were 34 telephone numbers registered under NFCorp with Maxis.
Hearing before judge Rozilah Salleh continues today.
