KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court has ordered Rosmah Mansor to enter her defence on all three counts of corruption to help a company secure the RM1.25 billion solar project for 369 rural schools in Sarawak.
“On the maximum evaluation of the evidence, I find the prosecution has established a prima facie case on all the charges,” trial Judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan said.
Rosmah, 69, is accused of soliciting RM187.5 million from former Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin, through her then aide Rizal Mansor as an inducement to help the company secure the solar project through direct negotiation with the education ministry.
She is also accused of two counts of receiving bribes amounting to RM6.5 million from Saidi between 2016 and 2017.
