PUTRAJAYA: Former Federal Territories minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor has left for the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court to face corruption charges.
He was seen leaving the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters in a black Toyota Alphard at 1.25pm on Thursday (Nov 15).
The Putrajaya MP will be charged with businessman Datuk Tan Eng Boon over the Kuala Lumpur City Hall land deals.
The former Umno secretary-general, who had been questioned 12 times by investigators over the land deals, was arrested Wednesday (Nov 14) when he arrived at the MACC headquarters to have his statement recorded.
Today will also witness Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor making another appearance in court where she is expected to be charged with corruption in the RM1.25bil solar hybrid project for rural schools in Sarawak.
The project became controversial when Sarawak Report alleged in June that the contract was awarded to Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd supposedly on “direct” order from her husband former premier Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Rosmah’s former aide, Datuk Rizal Mansor, 44, will be jointly charged with her.
MACC sources said the two would be hit with at least six charges involving an amount of RM6.5mil.
In preparation for the case, investigators on Wednesday called in Rosmah. She spent close to four hours giving her statement. The two will also be charged at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court.
On Oct 4, Rosmah was charged with 17 counts of money laundering involving RM7mil.
