Jan 20 case management date for Rosmah's appeal against dismissal of application to obtain Sri Ram's senior DPP appointment letter

PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor's appeal against the High Court's dismissal of her application to obtain Datuk Seri Gopal Sri Ram's appointment letter as senior deputy public prosecutor (DPP) in her corruption case has been fixed for further case management on Jan 20 next year.

Her lawyer, Datuk Akberdin Abdul Kader, when contacted by Bernama, confirmed the date after the case came up for case management before deputy registrar Darmafikri Abu Adam Monday (Nov 23).

On Aug 19 this year, Kuala Lumpur High Court judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan held that Rosmah, the wife of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, did not give any justification for the production of Sri Ram's letter of appointment.

Rosmah, 68, applied to the High Court to obtain Sri Ram's letter of appointment as senior DPP in her corruption case in connection with the supply and installation of solar energy to 369 rural schools in Sarawak.

She is facing one count of soliciting RM187.5mil and two counts of receiving RM6.5mil in bribes from Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin in connection with the solar energy project.

The bribes were allegedly received through her former assistant Datuk Rizal Mansor, as a reward for helping Jepak Holdings secure the Hybrid Photovoltaic Solar System Integrated Project as well as the maintenance and operation of diesel generator sets for 369 Sarawak rural schools worth RM1.25bil from the Education Ministry through direct negotiation.

The acts were allegedly committed at Lygon Cafe, Sunway Putra Mall, Jalan Putra here; Rosmah’s residence at Jalan Langgak Duta, Taman Duta and at Seri Perdana, Persiaran Seri Perdana, Precinct 10, Putrajaya between January 2016 and Sept 2017.

The High Court has fixed Dec 11 for her trial to resume. - Bernama
