Malaysian ex-PM’s wife faces graft charges over rural solar project

32 8 19

THE wife of deposed former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak is expected to be dragged to court on Thursday over graft allegations relating to an RM1.25 billion (US$312 million) energy project for rural schools.

Rosmah Mansor, along with her former aide Rizal Mansor, would face six charges related to a solar hybrid project for rural schools in Sarawak, the largest Malaysian state situated northwest of Borneo.

Sources close with the matter told The Star that the six graft charges involved a total amount of RM6.5 million (US$1.62 million) allegedly syphoned from the project.

The fresh charges come a month after Rosmah claimed trial to another 17 counts of money laundering involving RM7 million (US$1.75 million).
