Cops grill Rosmah again, as graft-busters question Najib over Sarawak solar-panel project

KUALA LUMPUR — Rosmah Mansor, the wife of former Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak, was questioned by the Malaysian police again on Monday (Nov 19). Rosmah, who had been charged twice this month with corruption, arrived at the headquarters of the Anti-Money Laundering unit about 9.30am. A police source told The Malaysian Insight that Rosmah was summoned to have her statement recorded but did not divulge further details, including the reasons for calling her again. At the same time, Najib was seen arriving at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office in Putrajaya at 9.22am. According to The Star Online news portal, he is believed to have been called in for further questioning over a solar energy project in Sarawak, for which Rosmah was charged along with a former aide last week. Najib and his wife, who has faced criticism for her extravagant lifestyle, are at the centre of a wide-ranging graft investigation launched by Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, who was returned to power by a stunning election victory in May. Rosmah and ex-aide Rizal Mansor were hit with corruption charges on Nov 15 for allegedly soliciting hundreds of millions in bribes to ensure one Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd received the solar power project directly from the Education Ministry without going through open tender. The charges are the latest against her, adding to her existing 17 counts of money laundering. Najib is also facing 38 charges of corruption, money laundering and criminal breach of trust mostly over a multi-billion-dollar corruption scandal at state fund 1Malaysian Development Berhad. Najib and Rosmah have pleaded not guilty to all charges. AGENCIES
