KUALA LUMPUR: The Sessions Court has been told that Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor's money laundering case involving about RM7mil has been transferred to the High Court.

Lead Prosecutor Datuk Seri Gopal Sri Ram informed Sessions Court judge Azura Alwi on Thursday (Dec 6) that the matter has been transferred to the High Court.

Sri Ram said the High Court had made an order on Nov 29.

The next date for parties to appear at the High Court will be fixed by the High Court deputy registrar.

Rosmah's husband, former premier Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, was also present during the proceedings.

On Nov 29, High Court judge Justice Nazlan Mohd Ghazali allowed the transfer to the High Court from the Sessions Court.

Rosmah, 66, was charged on Oct 4 with 12 counts of engaging directly in transactions involving proceeds of unlawful activity.

This was related to RM7,097,750 which had been deposited into her own bank account.

She allegedly committed the offence at the Affin Bank Bhd branch of Bangunan Getah Asli, 148, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, between Dec 4, 2013, and June 8, 2017.

The five remaining charges read that she allegedly engaged in money laundering.

This was because she had failed to furnish a tax return on the RM7,097,750 income deposited into her bank account, which she was required to do under the Income Tax Act 1967.

The offences were allegedly committed at the Inland Revenue Board, Kompleks Bangunan Kerajaan, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Halim here on May 1 of each year between 2014 and this year.
