KUALA LUMPUR: Rosmah Mansor, the wife of former prime minister Najib Razak, posted RM1 million of the RM2 million bail ordered by the Sessions Court today.

Two women, believed to be her bailors, arrived at the court at about 10.15am. They went to the bail payment counter at the ground floor of the Kuala Lumpur court complex at Jalan Duta here to sign the necessary documents before leaving at 11.15am.

Rosmah has been charged with 12 counts of money laundering involving RM7,097,750 and five counts of failing to declare her income to the Inland Revenue Board.

The Sessions Court allowed her bail of RM2 million with two sureties last Thursday after she pleaded not guilty to all 17 charges.

She was told to pay RM500,000 of the bail on the same day and the balance before Oct 11.

Rosmah was also ordered to surrender her two passports to the court and not to intimidate witnesses in the case.

The court set Nov 8 for case mention.
