Rosmah's hearing to remove Sri Ram deferred until July 12

KUALA LUMPUR (June 16): The hearing of Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor's (pictured) applications to remove senior Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Datuk Seri Gopal Sri Ram from continuing in prosecuting her and to declare her ongoing graft trial as null and void, previously scheduled for tomorrow, has now been deferred until July 12 due to the lockdown.

The High Court fixed the date today following case management via the Zoom application.

DPP Poh Yin Tinn when contacted by confirmed the postponement.

"A zoom meeting was held by the High Court just now and the court now fixed July 12 to hear the applications," Poh said.

Poh added that should her application to nullify the trial be dismissed, her defence would resume on July 15.

Initially, the hearing of the applications was scheduled to be heard on June 3 but had to be deferred until tomorrow due to the implementation of the full lockdown effective June 1.

The lockdown has now been extended until June 28.

Rosmah last month filed the applications to declare her ongoing corruption proceedings involving the RM1.25 billion solar-hybrid project for 369 rural schools in Sarawak as null and void, and also to remove Sri Ram from the prosecution in the case.

Sri Ram, meanwhile, said he would himself appear to oppose the applications.
