KUALA LUMPUR: The high court here was told today that Jepak Holdings managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin had handed over RM5 million in cash to the former prime minister’s wife for her help in getting approval letter from the Ministry of Education (MOE) for a solar hybrid project in Sarawak.
In the High Court hearing of Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor’s corruption trial Saidi’s business partner, Rayyan Radzwill Abdullah, 41, said Saidi informed him of the matter in December 2016.
” (Saidi) told me that he had handed over RM5 million in cash to Datin Seri Rosmah through (her former assistant) Datuk Rizal Mansor
“On the same day at about 10pm, Saidi invited me to go to Datuk Rizal Mansor’s house at Vista Kirana, Segambut, because Saidi wanted to give him a gift.
“Saidi handed over a paper bag that I believe contained cash to Datuk Rizal Mansor at his house.
” And after we left Datuk Rizal Mansor’s house, Saidi told me that the cash to Datuk Rizal Mansor was a reward for her helping Jepak get the solar hybrid project from the MOE,“ he said during the examination-in-chief by DPP Mohamad Mustaffa P. Kunyalam.
