MACC seeks more info from Rosmah over solar project


PUTRAJAYA: Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, who was charged with graft over the solar project for rural schools in Sarawak, will be interviewed again by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Monday (March 18).

The wife of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak was supposed to meet investigators on Thursday (March 14), but had requested for the interview to be done on Monday.

Sources said Rosmah will be asked for her statement to be recorded on the same case, as the MACC is seeking more information from "new issues" which have arisen.

"We wanted to see her yesterday, but she asked to meet on Monday instead," said a source, without revealing Rosmah's request for a postponement.

In November 2018, Rosmah claimed trial to two counts of graft involving RM187.5mil relating to projects to provide electricity to rural schools in Sarawak.

In the first charge, she was accused of soliciting for herself a RM187.5mil bribe from Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin through her aide Datuk Rizal Mansor.

She was also accused of receiving RM1.5mil from Saidi as a reward for assisting Jepak Holdings in obtaining the same project, involving 369 rural schools in Sarawak.
