Ex-PM Najib Razak’s lawyer was today stopped by the judge when they asked a former top executive to recognise a set of signatures. The judge in Najib Razak’s 1MDB trial stepped in to stop the defence team from raising a point on purported “forged” signatures in several bank documents belonging to a subsidiary company.
Judge Collin Lawrence Sequerah told the lawyer that ex-1MDB official Mohd Hazem Abdul Rahman was not a handwriting expert.
Lawyer Wan Aizuddin had asked the witness to identify the signatures on a set of letters.
The trial will continue tomorrow.
