Malaysia: Prosecution closes case in Rosmah’s corruption trial

The prosecution in Rosmah Mansor’s corruption trial wrapped up its case against the former prime minister’s wife today.

Ad hoc prosecutor Gopal Sri Ram told High Court judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan the prosecution had called its witnesses to testify. Twenty-three witnesses had given their evidence since Rosmah’s trial started on Feb 5.

“We are offering 10 witnesses to the defence. And we are also ready to put in our submissions for the end of the prosecution’s case within five days,” he said.

Among the witnesses offered to the defence is Najib Razak.

Rosmah was slapped with three counts of corruption for allegedly soliciting RM187.5 million from Saidi Abang Samsudin, managing director of Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd, as an inducement to help the company secure a solar project for 369 rural schools in Sarawak, costing RM1.25 billion, through direct negotiation with the education ministry.
