Rosmah quizzed for more than 3 hours by MACC

PUTRAJAYA: The wife of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, has left the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters at 3.43pm.

Rosmah was called in by the commission to have her statement on SRC International recorded.

Speaking to reporters on behalf of their client, Datuk K Kumaraendran and Datuk Geethan Ram Vincent said MACC officers have completed recording Rosmah’s statement.

“Datin Seri Rosmah gave her utmost cooperation during the process and was treated well by MACC officers,” they said adding that the process took more than three hours.

“The process, which took more than three hours, went well. Our client will extend further cooperation if sought by the agency,” they told a brief press conference before leaving the building.

Kumaranendran and Geethan however did not take any questions from members of media.

Rosmah merely offered reporters a smile when members of the press asked if she was fine.

Dressed in blue baju kurung with a red headscarf, Rosmah arrived at MACC headquarters in a silver Mercedes-Benz at 10.43am.

She looked calm and was accompanied by her daughter, Nooryana Najwa and Nooryana’s husband Daniyar Kessibayev apart from her counsel team.

However, Nooryana and Daniyar left the building at 11.40am before re-entering the anti-graft office at 2.45pm.

MACC had issued a notice to Rosmah last Friday, which required her to turn up at the anti-graft agency headquarters, here, to assist its probe into SRC International.

The notice was handed over by an MACC officer to Rosmah at her residence in Jalan Langgak Duta.

Her husband, Najib, has been questioned twice by MACC on May 22 and 24 over the same issue.

Over 100 members of the media started to gather at the MACC lobby as early as 8am to follow development of the case.

SRC was set in 2011 by the previous government and was a unit of state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad before it was placed under the Finance Ministry in 2012.

The SRC case involves alleged transfer of RM42 million of the company’s funds into Najib’s personal account.
