THE Kuala Lumpur High Court was told today that former Felda chairman Shahrir Abdul Samad bought a Honda Civic hybrid vehicle worth RM118,485 nine years ago and paid using just one cheque.
Sutera Auto Sdn Bhd account executive, Rozana Khalid, 43, who was involved in the process of closing the account for the purchase of the vehicle, said Shahrir made the full payment for the white car using a cheque on December 21, 2013.
Rozana said this while reading the witness statement at the trial of the former Johor Baru MP, who is charged with failing to declare the RM1 million he received from Najib Razak to the Inland Revenue Board (IRB).
The seventh prosecution witness also confirmed the copy of the cheque worth RM118,485 and the payment receipt, shown by deputy public prosecutor Rasyidah Murni Azmi.
Rozana said the probability for someone to buy a car with cash is only 1% or 2%.,
“Normally, car buyers will take out a bank loan. For example, out of 50 units of cars sold, maybe two or three people will buy in cash and the payment will be made either with cash or a credit card,” said Rohana, who has served the company for 13 years.
Earlier, the court heard testimony from the company’s administrative executive, Nurrul Hafizah Md Roslan, 40, who was the prosecution’s sixth witness, regarding the invoices prepared after the payment and vehicle registration had been completed.
Shahrir, 72, is charged with money laundering by not stating his real income in the Income Tax Return Form for Assessment Year 2013, which is a violation of Section 113(1)(a) of the Income Tax Act 1967, on the RM1 million, believed to be from unlawful activities, which he received from Najib through a cheque.
He was charged with committing the offence at IRB, Duta Branch, Government Office Complex, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Halim, Kuala Lumpur, on April 25, 2014.
The charge, framed under Section 4(1)(a) of the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001, provides a maximum fine of RM5 million, imprisonment for up to five years, or both if found guilty.
The trial before judge Muhammad Jamil Hussin continues tomorrow. – Bernama, August 8, 2022.
