SHAH ALAM, Sept 28 (Bernama) -- The High Court was told here Friday that there was no way of knowing whether Cpl Sirul Azhar Umar used a Touch 'n Go card registered under his name at two toll plazas on the day Altantuya Shaariibuu was allegedly murdered.
An operations executive of Rangkaian Segar - the issuer of Touch 'n Go cards - Wan Abdullah Wan Ali,(ABOVE) 30, said it was possible for an individual to buy many cards and register them under his name and then give the cards away to other people.
He was replying to a question by Sirul's lawyer Kamarul Hisham Kamaruddin (ABOVE).

Sirul (ABOVE), 36, and C/Insp Azilah Hadri, 31, are alleged to have murdered Mongolian woman Altantuya, 28, in Mukim Bukit Raja here in October last year. Political analyst Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda, 47, is charged with abetting them. Abdullah, who is the 34th prosecution witness, said he was not sure how many cards an individual could ask for when making an application for the first time but at other times, he could apply for more than one.
Kamarul: "When an individual wants to make an application for Touch'n Go cards, does he need to fill a form?"
Abdullah: "No necessarily because they can apply on-line besides filling up a form and also through promotions carried out at toll plazas."
Kamarul: "In the case of Sirul, do you know how the application was made?"
Abdullah: "I am not sure." He said that a Touch'n Go card applicant, either by filling a form or on-line, did not need to give the registration number of vehicle that would be using the card.
During re-examination by Deputy Public Prosecutor Tun Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah (ABOVE) , he said he did not know whether Sirul had more than one card when he was asked to provide a copy of transaction record to the police because he was given the serial number of only one card. Abdullah also said that his company did not keep the original document of each transaction record in a file and would only give the copy to anyone requesting it because each data was kept in the computer.
Rangkaian Segar deputy senior operations manager Azman Md Ali, 40, said he could not find data on Azilah or his identity card number after the police asked him to find information about the first accused and Rohaniza Roslan on November 6 last year. When Majid asked whether it was possible to know the user of a Touch 'n Go or Smart Tag, he said: "Yes, but it may not be accurate." He also said that based on the transaction record, the card registered under Sirul's name, had been used with a Smart Tag in five occasions. The hearing before Justice Datuk Mohd Zaki Md Yasin resumes on Monday.

Witness: Not sure if Sirul actually used Touch 'n Go card
Maria J. Dass, theSUN
SHAH ALAM (Sept 28, 2007): Rangakaian Segar Sdn Bhd operations executive Wan Abdullah Wan Ali (ABOVE) told the High Court that he could not know for sure if it was second accused Cpl Sirul Azhar Umar who had used a Touch 'n Go card although it was registered to his name. There was no restriction to the number of cards which could be bought by one person, and of the transfer of the card to another person, he said.
Wan Abdullah was testifying in the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder trial where the prosecution was trying to build a case around the movements of second accused Sirul Azhar based on his Touch 'n Go card transactions and pictures provided by highway operator PLUS. Questioned by second accused Sirul Azhar’s lawyer Kamarul Hisham Kamaruddin, Wan Abdullah said he did not know if Sirul was the one who used the Touch 'n Go card for all the transactions in the records. Kamarul: (Referring to the transaction records of a Touch n Go card belonging to Sirul ) There is no way to know if Sirul was the one who used the card for all the transactions.
Wan Abdullah: I don’t know.
Former deputy senior operations manager for Rangkaian Segar Azman Md Ali told the court that the difference in two printouts of Touch 'n Go transactions handed over to the police was because one was printed using the general system for all workers (P29), while the other (ID120) was printed using a system which is only accessible to the fraud monitoring team in Rangkaian Segar.
The system used by the fraud monitoring team has information on the toll lanes, location and smart tag number which is also known as an OBU (On Board Unit) number. Asked about the time differences recorded by PLUS highway CCTVs and the Touch 'n Go transaction records Azman said: "From my experience the times are usually different as PLUS does not have a time syncronisation server. Questioned by DPP Tun Abdul Majid Tun Hamzah if there was a fault with the system as there were discrepancies in the times between the date provided by PLUS and Rangkaian Segar, Azman said: "There is no glitch but the data came late, or never reached Rangkaian Segar." "Based on the record, there is no fault (to the system)," he said. Hearing continues on Monday (Oct 1).
