After nearly 13 hours, Rosmah finally leaves MACC

Rosmah Mansor was questioned by MACC since this morning.

PUTRAJAYA: Former prime minister Najib Razak’s wife, Rosmah Mansor, was released by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) after being questioned for almost 13 hours over her alleged role in the 1MDB scandal.

She came out of the MACC headquarters at 10.42pm, with her lawyers, K Kumaraendran and Geethan Ram Vincent.

“I am okay, Alhamdulillah,” she said as she stepped into her car.

Her lawyer Kumaraendran said Rosmah had completed giving her statement.

“I have nothing to answer now, please understand,” he added.

Geethan Ram said there was no notice for Rosmah to return for more questioning tomorrow.

Rosmah was not served any court summons to appear in court.

Earlier news reports claimed she might face 20 money laundering charges.

Rosmah had entered the building at 9.50am without talking to members of the media.

MACC summoned Rosmah on June 5 to have her statement recorded. That session lasted five hours.

MACC chief commissioner Shukri Abdull said earlier this week that they had completed investigations into Rosmah.

Her husband, Najib, is currently facing a total of 32 charges for alleged criminal breach of trust, abuse of power and money laundering-related offences linked to SRC International and 1MDB.
