Rosmah’s corruption trial pushed to Nov 16


KUALA LUMPUR: The corruption trial of Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, initially scheduled for four days at the High Court here, has been postponed due to the extension of the conditional movement control order from Oct 27 to Nov 9.

Deputy public prosecutor Ahmad Akram Gharib said the court had set Nov 16 to continue with the trial.

Former education minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid, who is the fifth prosecution witness, is set to be recalled for cross-examination by the defence when the trial recommences before Justice Mohamed Zaini Mazlan.

The court will also hear the prosecution’s application to include an audio recording of the alleged conversation involving Rosmah and her husband, former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, as evidence in court.

Rosmah, 69, is on trial on one charge of soliciting RM187.5mil and two counts of receiving bribes totalling RM6.5mil from Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd’s former managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin as a reward for helping the company to secure the Hybrid Photovoltaic Solar System Integrated Project, as well as the maintenance and operation of diesel gen-sets for 369 Sarawak rural schools worth RM1.25bil from the Education Ministry through direct negotiation. — Bernama
