Rosmah Mansor’s representation set for March 1 by High Court


KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here has fixed March 1 to know the outcome of a representation by Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor who is seeking to strike out her 12 money laundering charges involving RM7,097,750, and five charges for failing to declare her income to the Inland Revenue Board.

Justice K. Muniandy set the date after Deputy Public Prosecutor Ahmad Akram Gharib informed the court that Rosmah's representation, sent to the Attorney General's Chambers (AGC) last December, was still being studied by the AGC.

"We still need to obtain statements from several individuals to complete the investigation before we decide on the representation," the DPP said here on Tuesday (Jan 16).

Earlier, lawyer Datuk Firoz Hussein Ahmad Jamaluddin informed the court that Rosmah was absent from the proceedings as she was unwell.

He asked for the proceedings to be postponed.

DPP Ahmad Akram did not object.

Today was initially fixed for submissions to resume in Rosmah's application to set aside her criminal charges.

Filed on Dec 12, 2023, this is Rosmah's third representation to the AGC.

Her first and second representations, sent on May 3 and Aug 18, last year, were still undecided by the AGC.

Rosmah was accused of committing the offences at Affin Bank Berhad, Natural Rubber Building Branch, Jalan Ampang in Kuala Lumpur between Dec 4, 2013, and June 8, 2017, and at LHDN, Government Complex, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Halim, here, from May 1, 2014, to May 1, 2018.

The trial of the case started on Aug 24, 2023, and two witnesses had testified.
