THE THIRD FORCE
Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor has been placed under arrest by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) today on counts of having committed offences under the Anti-Money Laundering Act, Anti-Terrorism Financing Act and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act (Amla) 2001.
The wife of former Malaysian premier Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak is due to be produced by the anti-graft agency to the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court tomorrow, the 4th of October 2018.
Her appearance will coincide with Case Management proceedings by the Kuala Lumpur High court, due also to be held tomorrow, to decide on the schedule of legal proceedings related to money laundering charges that were brought against her husband.
On the 8th of August 2018, Najib pleaded not guilty to three charges of laundering funds from SRC International, a subsidiary of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
The pleas were recorded by the Mahkhamah Tinggi Jenayah 3 (MTJ3) at the court complex in Jalan Duta, Kuala Lumpur after the charges were first read to him by a Sessions Court within the same complex.
Najib was accused of receiving a total of RM42 million from SRC in three separate tranches between December 2014 and February 2015.`
The Third Force was made to understand on the 26th of September 2018 itself (READ HERE) that Rosmah is due to face some 40 – 50 charges of money laundering and perhaps even some other charges for other related offences.
