PUTRAJAYA, Oct 4 2018 : The legal procedure against Datuk Seri Rosmah Mansor, the wife of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, was taken according to the law, said Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Referring to a claim by Rosmah’s daughter, Nooryana Najwa Najib, that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had gone too far in arresting her mother, Dr Mahathir said the action was taken without any idea of revenge.

“If it’s against the law, the legal process will be carried out; that is our promise and there is no idea of revenge and anything like that.

“The law says (that) if you steal money, you will be charged in court. Whether the court agrees or not, that is a different matter,” he said to reporters after launching the 6th ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Disaster Management and related meetings here today.

Nooryana Najwa, in an Instagram post yesterday, said she could accept the action taken against her father, Najib, but the arrest of her mother and the raid on her grandmother Tun Rahah Mohammad Noah’s house was excessive. – Bernama
