Rosmah's solar hybrid appeal fixed for hearing in October


KUALA LUMPUR: The Court of Appeal has fixed two days in October to hear the appeal by Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor to quash her conviction and sentence in the RM1.25bil solar hybrid graft case.

The hearing dates of Oct 23 and Oct 24 were fixed during a case management before a registrar here on Tuesday.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Poh Yih Tinn confirmed the dates when contacted by the media.

On Sept 1, 2022, Justice Mohamed Zaini Mazlan (now a Court of Appeal judge) found Rosmah, the wife of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, guilty of three charges of corruption and sentenced her to 10 years in jail for each of the charges with all three prison terms to run concurrently.

He also fined her RM970mil which, should she fail to pay, will see her liable to a total of 30 years in jail.

The High Court, however, granted her a stay of execution for the imprisonment term and fine pending her appeal to the Court of Appeal.

Rosmah was accused of one count of soliciting RM187.5mil and two counts of receiving bribes totalling RM6.5mil from Jepak Holdings former managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin.

She filed the appeal petition on Oct 13, 2022, claiming that the decision of the High Court judge was biased and not based on proper consideration.

She cited 127 grounds on why the High Court erred in the judgment.

Rosmah is currently out on bail.
