KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters), SEPTEMBER 26, 2018 - Rosmah Mansor, the wife of former Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak, arrived on Wednesday at the country’s anti-graft agency for a second round of questioning over a corruption probe at state fund 1MDB.
Her questioning comes amid indications that more charges could be filed in the investigation into how billions of dollars went missing from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
Najib, who was ousted in a general election in May, has already been charged with money laundering, abuse of power and criminal breach of trust. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and has consistently denied wrongdoing. Rosmah arrived at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters flanked by her lawyers and looking solemn. Her first round of questioning in June lasted three hours. Last week, an MACC official said more charges could be brought against individuals over 1MDB.
When asked if Rosmah could face charges, the official said: “I’m not denying that”.
