マレーシアの裁判所は、元首相ナジブの妻のグラフト裁判を続行するよう命令する

木曜日のマレーシアの裁判所はロスマ・マンソールに命じた, ナジブ・ラザク前首相の妻, to enter a defense in a corruption trial linked to a multi-million-dollar project approved while the ex-premier was still in power.

Dozens of graft charges were filed against the couple after Najib lost the 2018 選挙, amid anger over alleged corruption and their opulent lifestyle after police raids revealed Rosmah owned millions of dollars worth of jewelry and luxury handbags.
The Kuala Lumpur high court ruled the prosecution had proved sufficient grounds for the case to proceed.
This is my finding that the prosecution has produced credible evidence to prove every element of the offenseI now call upon the accused to enter a defense,” judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan said in his ruling.
    Rosmah, who wore a traditional Malay dress with a shawl covering her head, told the court she would testify under oath during defense proceedings.
    Her lawyer, Jagjit Singh, said after the hearing the defense would behampered to a certain extentbecause the judge did not explain the factors behind his decision, adding that this had caused his client emotional distress.
    We had to comfort her a little bit. We just told her to go back to her house and remove all the stress that has gone through here,” Jagjit told reporters.
    Rosmah was earlier accompanied by Najib, who had to leave midway through her hearing to attend to his own court case.
    Rosmah, 69, faces three charges of soliciting and receiving bribes involving a sum of 194 million ringgit ($ 48.09 百万) to help a company, Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd, secure a solar power project.
    Of that total, prosecutors accuse Rosmah of arranging for 187 million ringgit ($ 46.22 百万) to be paid as a political donation to Najib, while also receiving two bribes of 6.5 百万 ($ 1.6 百万) ringgit.
    If found guilty, she could be jailed for up to 20 years and fined at least five times the sum specified in the charges.
    In July, Najib was found guilty of corruption and sentenced to 12 years in jail in the first of several trials linked to a multi-billion-dollar scandal at state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB). He has since filed an appeal against the decision.
      The couple deny any wrongdoing, saying the charges are politically motivated.
      Rosmah’s case resumes on June 9.
