The prosecution in Rosmah Mansor’s money laundering cases yesterday said they had served over 600 pages of documents related to the trial to her lawyers.
Fiat prosecutor Gopal Sri Ram told the Sessions Court during Rosmah’s case mention that they had given the trial-related documents to Rosmah’s legal team.
“We delivered most of the trial documents to the defence on Oct 30, as required under Section 51 A of the Criminal Procedure Code,” he said, adding however that they were still waiting for the bank to give them the account statements.
Rosmah’s lawyer K Kumaraendran confirmed receipt of the documents last week and said they would make the necessary applications to transfer her case to the High Court.
Judge Azura Alwi set Dec 6 for further case mention and for Kumaraendran to update the court on Rosmah’s transfer status.
Sri Ram reiterated that the prosecution would not object to Rosmah’s bid for transfer.
“My instructions from the attorney-general are to get the case to trial as soon as possible,” he said.
Several of Rosmah’s supporters were present in court yesterday and were seen shaking hands with her before she left.
Rosmah’s husband, former prime minister Najib Razak, also faces charges related to money laundering, as well as criminal breach of trust, corruption and abuse of power over government and 1MDB-related funds. – FMT
