Tan Sri Mazidah Abdul Majid, 70, was testifying in the trial of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who is facing seven charges of criminal breach of trust, power abuse and money laundering.
When cross-examined by Najib’s lead counsel Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah on whether she still kept a copy of the ethics document, she replied she did not have it with her and agreed that the document was not official secret.
Muhammad Shafee: Possible to bring a copy of the Code of Ethics
Muhammad Shafee: You have quoted in your witness statement in relation to Khairy Jamaludin..he left (meeting) after declaring interest. Can you remember why
Mazidah: I think one of his relatives was in the company mentioned in the meeting.
Muhammad Shafee: I suspect it was about ECM Libra (company)
Mazidah: I can’t remember
To the lawyer's request for her to produce the minutes of cabinet meeting in which Najib did not declare conflict of interest, the witness said she did not have the document, which was classified under Official Secrets Act.
Deputy public prosecutor Muhammad Izzat Fauzan said the prosecution would deliberate on whether the minutes could be produced tomorrow.
Mazidah added, if she knew that Najib was advisor emeritus of SRC, she would have raised concern about the potential conflict of interest with the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC).
“As far as I am concerned on that occasion we did not know that Datuk Seri Najib was the advisor emeritus of SRC,” she said.
Hearing continues tomorrow before High Court judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali.
