KUALA LUMPUR: Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor has been found guilty of all three corruption charges involving the RM1.25 billion project to supply solar hybrid energy to rural schools in Sarawak.

High Court Judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan ruled that the prosecution had proven its case against the wife of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

The guilty verdict comes nine days after her husband was sent to prison to serve his own 12-year jail sentence after being convicted in the SRC International case.

Rosmah’s lawyer Datuk Jagjit Singh is now submitting her plea for a lesser sentence.

He said Rosmah had an unblemished character and had done service to the nation as the wife of a prime minister, especially in helping young children who were not given education.

Jagjit said Rosmah also had health issues which the court should consider.
