KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here today found Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor guilty on all three corruption charges involving a RM1.25 billion hybrid solar project for 369 rural schools in Sarawak.
Judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan ruled that the prosecution succeeded in proving the case beyond reasonable doubt.
The court sentenced Rosmah to a total of 30 years’ jail and RM970 million fine, in default 10 years’ jail.
She was sentenced to ten years’ jail on each count of the charges.
However, Rosmah will only have to serve ten years in jail as Judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan ordered for all the jail sentences to run concurrently.
Rosmah was charged with one count of soliciting RM187.5 million and two counts of receiving bribes totalling RM6.5 million from Jepak Holdings former managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin.
On Feb 18 last year, the wife of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak was ordered to enter her defense on the three charges after the prosecution succeeded in proving a prima facie case against her.
