CHC Trial 21, January, 2014 (Day 33-Day 7 Tranche 3): Opinion Evidence

Hmm, it was the second day of prosecutor’s turn.
The prosecutor showed Sim Guan Seng many internal documents he had not seen before.
Basically the prosecutor asked him if he had seen all these documents, what impact would have been there in the final audit.
Sim commented the documents showed some ‘unusual’ business transaction.
The defense, on the other hand, objected such questioning by the prosecutor, calling it ‘opinion evidence’.

Hmm, interesting. I checked wikipedia regarding ‘opinion evidence’

Sim may be an expert witness.
But still, wouldn’t it be better to ask those involved in this internal documents rather than Sim??
