“In that regard nothing stopped a body corporate as the respondent to get the functions carried, out by a legal firm acting on its behalf which firm would in turn utilise whatever human agent it so wished.

It is not necessary that it is only that person who carried out the function on behalf of the company that must testify. Not at all, as any official of the company well equipped with the transaction and or related documents would suffice to testify. See Anyaebsi v RT Briscore Nia.
