Rosmah's solar project graft trial adjourned as she had close contact with Covid-19 case

KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here on Wednesday (Dec 8) postponed Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor's (pic) corruption trial in connection with the solar energy project for 369 rural schools in Sarawak as her MySejahtera status showed that she had close contact with a Covid-19 case.

Justice Mohamed Zaini Mazlan also vacated tomorrow's hearing after Rosmah's counsel Datuk Jagjit Singh told the court that her MySejahtera status is orange.

"My client is present today and we told her to stay in the car waiting for your lordship's decision whether to continue the proceedings or to vacate. Her husband's (former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak) MySejahtera status is red,” the lawyer said.

Asked by Justice Mohamed Zaini whether Najib is positive for Covid-19, Jagjit replied: "I am not sure, but I was informed his status (MySejahtera) is red.

Justice Mohamed Zaini said red means the person is positive for Covid-19 to which the lawyer replied that he was not sure. - Bernama
