KUALA LUMPUR – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is investigating the doctor who issued medical certificate (MC) to Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
Rosmah’s lawyer, Datuk Jagjit Singh described the action of MACC as an attempt to threaten the doctor and it was unacceptable.
“The doctor who issued the MC is now being investigated by the MACC. This is intimidation,” he said as reported in NST.
Jagjit also questioned on the person issuing the order on the investigation as it could not be from the court.
Therefore, he requested the person who issued the order to apologise.
However, Public Prosecutor, Datuk Seri Gopal Sri Ram dismissed Jagjit’s argument and said that the MACC was merely doing their job.
“If the doctor felt that he was being threatened, he should lodge a report,” he said.
However, Jagjit emphasized that the court needs to make a decision on the matter. Justice Mohamed Zaini Mazlan then decided that the court would not interfere and agreed with Gopal Sri Ram that the doctor needs to lodge a report if he felt intimidated by what had happened.
The solar hybrid project graft trial involving Rosmah should have started on Monday. However, it was postponed after she failed to appear in court.
Jagjit informed Judge Mohamed Zaini that Rosmah was unwell and the doctor had issued an MC to her on 2 February.
Rosmah claimed to suffer from acute neck and joint pains, a condition she has reportedly been suffering from over the last five years.
The lawyer also presented Rosmah’s medical report to the court and said that she was being treated at a private hospital.
The court was then adjourned to today.
Rosmah attended the court at around 10.00am this morning, accompanied by an ambulance.
Rosmah is currently facing three charges of seeking RM187.5 million in gratifications and receiving RM6.5 million from the Managing Director of Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd, Saidi Abang Samsudin for the RM1.25 billion solar energy project involving 369 rural schools in Sarawak. -MalaysiaGazette
