Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor has been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
In a statement, the MACC said she will be taken to the KL Sessions Court tomorrow to face charges under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 over money laundering offences.
She is charged under the same law used against her husband Datuk Seri Najib Razak who is facing 32 charges related to funds transferred into his bank accounts.
The MACC said the arrest was made at 3.20pm today at the MACC HQ.
“Rosmah will be brought to the KL Sessions Court on October 4, 2018 at 8am to be charged.”
Rosmah had arrived at the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya at 10.42am on Wednesday (Oct 3).
Clad in a light green baju kurung and matching headscarf, Rosmah looked calm as she walked past the gathered media.
She was accompanied by her lawyers Datuk K Kumaraendran and Datuk Geethan Ram Vincent.
This is her third appointment with the MACC officials.
On June 5, she was questioned for about five hours by MACC investigators over a probe into SRC International, a former 1MDB subsidiary.
On Sept 26, Rosmah was called in for a second round of questioning – this time on 1MDB – which lasted almost 13 hours.
It was earlier reported that she may face over 20 criminal charges, mostly involving money laundering under the Anti-Money Laundering Act.
