The Kuala Lumpur High Court has fixed July 7 to deliver its verdict in Rosmah Mansor’s corruption case involving a hybrid solar project for rural schools in Sarawak.

High Court judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan fixed the date after case mention today.

“We have reached the end of the road with this case and it is time to end the journey. I propose to take two months from today and propose to have my full written judgment on July 7 when I deliver my decision.

“I will deliver my decision at 9am,” he was quoted as saying by Bernama.

Rosmah, 70, was ordered to enter her defence for three charges on Feb 18 last year, after the prosecution succeeded in proving a prima facie case against her.

She faced one charge of soliciting RM187.5 million and two counts of receiving bribes totalling RM6.5 million from Jepak Holdings Sdn managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin.

The bribes were allegedly received through her former aide Rizal Mansor, as a reward for helping Jepak Holdings secure the hybrid photovoltaic solar system integrated project as well as the maintenance and operation of diesel generator sets for 369 Sarawak rural schools worth RM1.25 billion from the education ministry through direct negotiation.
