Today, she kept the court waiting for three hours.
Then her counsel scrambled around to find an MC for her.
Unfit to attend court
Her counsel Akberdin Abdul Kader submitted a Certificate of Unfitness to Attend Court to the High Court and applied for a postponement.
Under the new regulation 24A of the Medical (Amendment) Regulations 1977, Rosmah had to submit a medical certificate along with the Certificate of Unfitness to Attend Court.
The proceedings adjourned for more than three hours in order for her lawyers to obtain the medical certificate.

On 15 November last year, Rosmah had pleaded not guilty in the Sessions Court to two counts of receiving bribes, totalling RM1.5 million, in the implementation of the project to supply and install solar energy at 369 rural schools in Sarawak two years ago.
She was charged under Section 16(a)(A) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act.
She faces imprisonment for up to 20 years and fine of not less than five times the amount of the gratification of RM10,000, whichever is higher, upon conviction.
- Isn’t making the court wait for you to turn up (three hours), a contempt of court?
- Why didn’t she get her MC the day before?
- Who is the doctor who gave her the MC?
- Is she genuinely ill or just afraid to face the music?She should NOT prolong her anguish and just go to court. She might get more ill with tension, panic attacks, high blood and depression, just by avoiding the inevitable, of going to court.
