KUALA LUMPUR: The prosecution in the case of Rosmah Mansor, who is facing two corruption charges involving solar energy projects in rural schools in Sarawak, has submitted all relevant documents to the defence, the Sessions Court was told.
Deputy public prosecutor Mohd Dusuki Mokhtar told the Sessions Court judge Azman Ahmad that the status of the application to transfer the case to the High Court is yet to be known and applied for a new mention date.
“The application has been filed but there is no decision yet as there are some issues raised regarding the application by the defence. I am requesting a new mention date,” said Dusuki.
The court fixed Feb 15 for mention.
Dusuki told reporters later that among the documents handed over were tenders and letters related to the solar project.
Meanwhile, Akberdin said the defence had received 300 pages of documents from the prosecution.
On Nov 15 last year, Rosmah, the wife of former prime minister Najib Razak, pleaded not guilty to a charge of soliciting RM187.5 million and receiving RM1.5 million for the project to provide electricity to schools in 369 rural schools in Sarawak, two years ago.
She was charged under Section 16(a) (A) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act (MACC), and faces imprisonment for up to 20 years and a fine of not less than five times the amount of the gratification of RM10,000, whichever is higher, upon conviction.
Rosmah, who was accompanied by her husband Najib and son Mohd Ashman, is also represented by lawyer Jagjit Singh
