Tian Chua implicates Rosmah in illegal money transaction

(Free Malaysia Today) – Prime Minister’s wife  Rosmah Mansor and  two Umno-linked corporate figures– Abu Sahid Mohamed and Syed Mohammed Syed Nusrin–are in the spotlight over allegations of illegal money transactions.

Parti Keadilan Rakyat Strategy Director Tian Chua claimed an individual sent  RM600,000 to Rosmah through a money changer while she was in Dubai in August last year.

However, he said he was not sure what Rosmah did with the money, but he remarked that she could have used it for shopping as she was “famous  for it.”

He told a press conference here that he had a certified letter from Bank Negara to prove that an unidentified individual had illegally transferred the RM600,000 into Rosmah’s bank account.

He claimed that the money transaction  by Sahid, the executive chairman of Perwaja Steel, involved RM22.2 million sent  to United Kingdom between June and August 2008 through money changer Salamath Ali.

Tian said the money was for the purchase of properties.

Sahid  is also the chairman of both Kinsteel Bhd and the Maju Group of companies as well as the managing director of Maju Expressway Sdn Bhd.

Tian also said businessman Syed Mohammed Syed Nursin wired RM1.19 million to Britain through Salamath Ali, also for buying properties.

Syed Mohammed is the younger brother of new sugar tycoon Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary.
