Please elaborate on the nature of the agreement. What does it relate to and what is the covenant?
Sorry, is it possible for you to send a copy of the document in question? A photo or a scan should suffice. I just need to make sure I'm clear what document you are talking about. You have described the document in question as "a share transfer document" but also as a "business agreement" but these are different things.
Sorry, but what do you mean you aren't allowed to show a copy of the document. If you are contemplating signing a document in any capacity (which I am assuming given you are asking for advice on this) you should be free to seek advice on the document. Who is preventing you from supplying a copy for the purposes of obtaining advice, and why?
If you are satisfied that you are only being required to witness a signature on the document then it is really the parties to the document who need to ensure you are a suitable witness, so you can sign and if it later turns out the document requires a specially qualified witness that will be there problem.
Just make sure that you are not signing something whereby you warrant that you have some special qualification that you do not.
I trust the above assists.
