KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 14 – Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor is expected to be questioned by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today.
According to a MACC source, besides Rosmah, also called to the commission’s headquarters in Putrajaya is her former special officer, Datuk Rizal Mansor.
“They have been ordered to be at the MACC’s office at 9.30am tomorrow (Wednesday) to assist investigation into a solar energy project for schools in Sarawak,” he said when contacted by Bernama here last night.
In early June this year, an online portal reported the possibility of misappropriation in the award of contract for a solar hybrid project in Sarawak worth RM2.5billion, which was allegedly awarded directly under the directive of a former Malaysian leader.
The leader had also allegedly instructed the Education Ministry in January last year to appoint a car rental company in Bintulu to undertake the project in installing solar panels at 369 rural schools in Sarawak.
According to the source, MACC would also record former Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor’s statement on the 97 dubious transactions involving the sale of land belonging to the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), covering more than 273 hectare and worth RM5.63 billion.
Tengku Adnan is required to be at the MACC headquarters here at 2pm, he added.
MACC deputy chief commissioner (Operations) Datuk Seri Azam Baki, when contacted confirmed the matter, but declined to elaborate. — BERNAMA
