Kuala Lumpur, May 12 — The Kuala Lumpur High Court has fixed July 7 to deliver its verdict in Rosmah Mansor’s corruption case involving an RM1.25 billion hybrid solar project for rural schools in Sarawak.
Rosmah, 70, was ordered to enter her defense for three charges on Feb 18 last year, after the prosecution succeeded in proving a prima facie case against her.
She faced one charge of soliciting RM187.5 million and two counts of receiving bribes totaling RM6.5 million from Jepak Holdings Sdn managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin.
The bribes were allegedly received through her former aide Rizal Mansor, as a reward for helping Jepak Holdings secure the hybrid photovoltaic solar system integrated project as well as the maintenance and operation of diesel generator sets for 369 Sarawak rural schools worth RM1.25 billion from the education ministry through direct negotiation.
