Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, was admitted for treatment at a private hospital here, last night.

Rosmah, 69, was slated to attend the first day of her corruption trial in connection with the supply and installation of solar energy panels at 369 rural schools in Sarawak.

Rosmah was initially jointly charged with her former special officer, Datuk Rizal Mansor, with soliciting and receiving the bribes.

However, the prosecution has since withdrawn all charges against Rizal and he is expected to be called as a prosecution witness.


KUALA LUMPUR: Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, was admitted for treatment at a private hospital here, last night.

When contacted, her counsel, Datuk Akberdin Abdul Kader, confirmed the matter.




Rosmah did not attend the first day of her much-anticipated corruption trial yesterday as she had been given an MC (Medical Chit).

Her lead counsel, Datuk Jagjit Singh, informed High Court judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan that Rosmah’s condition could be described as ‘life threatening’.

Jagjit added that Rosmah is unfit to attend the trial for this entire week, but the defence is ready to proceed next week.

However, lead prosecutor Datuk Seri Gopal Sri Ram vigorously objected to the defence’s application, and said that Rosmah was just trying everything possible to avoid attending court.

He even called on the judge to revoke Rosmah’s bail and throw her in prison to ensure her attendance in court.

The court then adjourned the trial to tomorrow.

Rosmah, 69, was slated to attend the first day of her corruption trial in connection with the supply and installation of solar energy panels at 369 rural schools in Sarawak.

She is facing two counts of soliciting RM187.5 million and receiving RM1.8 million meant for the project.

On the first count, she was charged with dishonestly soliciting for herself a gratification of RM187.5 million – which is 15 per cent of the value of the contract – from Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd managing director Saidi Abang Samsudain.

It was allegedly an inducement to help the company secure the Hybrid Photovoltaic Solar System Integrated Project and Maintenance and Operation of Genset/Diesel for 369 rural schools in Sarawak, worth RM1.25 billion, through direct negotiation from the Education Ministry.

She was charged with committing the offence at Lygon Café at Sunway Putra Mall, Jalan Putra, Chow Kit, between March and April 2016.

On the second count, she was charged with dishonestly receiving for herself RM1.5 million from Saidi for the same purpose at No 11, Jalan Langgak Duta, Taman Duta on Sept 7, 2017.

Rosmah also faces a third count of accepting gratification of RM5 million from Saidi to secure the same project at the same place in Jalan Langgak Duta.

She is charged under Section 16 (a)(A) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Act 2009 and faces up to 20 years’ jail and a fine, if convicted.

Rosmah was initially jointly charged with her former special officer, Datuk Rizal Mansor, with soliciting and receiving the bribes.

However, the prosecution has since withdrawn all charges against Rizal and he is expected to be called as a prosecution witness.
