Rosmah leaves after 5 hours at MACC

PUTRAJAYA: Rosmah Mansor, the wife of former prime minister Najib Razak, left the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters after five hours of questioning over a corruption probe related to 1MDB.

Rosmah, who arrived at 10.45am today, did not speak to reporters as she left the building.

However, her lawyers said she had given her full cooperation throughout the session and had been treated well by investigating officers.

They declined to answer further questions from the press.

The couple are being questioned as part of investigations into the former 1MDB subsidiary SRC International and the RM42 million channelled into Najib’s personal bank account.

Najib was questioned by MACC on May 22 and 24. The former finance minister and chairman of 1MDB’s advisory board has denied any wrongdoing in relation to the investment company and was cleared by former attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali in 2016.
