MACC: Not even Rosmah spared from probe

Abu Kassim

(The Star) – Not even the Prime Minister’s wife is exempted from investigations, says the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC).

According to its chief commissioner Tan Sri Abu Kassim (pic), it was found that the RM2.4mil ring, allegedly bought by Rosmah Mansor, entered Malaysia through Singapore.

The customs department confirmed that it was later sent back to a jewelry company in New York, reported Sin Chew Daily.

Abu revealed that investigations commenced one hour after he received a complaint at 2pm, followed by a phone call to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak himself.

“What I want to say is: we have even probed the Prime Minister’s wife. Do you think we still have anything to be afraid of?” he said during a signing of a Memorandum of Understanding pledging to fight graft alongside Sabah state assemblymen.

Abu added that this was the first time he publicly admitted to the investigations on Rosmah Mansor.
