KUALA LUMPUR - Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor is expected to be called in to have her statement recorded by the police tomorrow.

The wife of former premier Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak was initially required to show up at Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department's headquarters at Menara KPJ in Jalan Tun Razak today, but the meeting was postponed to 10am tomorrow.

It is learnt that Rosmah was supposed to meet Bukit Aman Anti-money Laundering and Anti-terrorism Financing Prevention (Amlatfa) division's investigators in its probe into matters relating to sovereign fund 1Malaysia Develop-ment Bhd.

"Investigators will question her further on various issues relating to 1MDB, including on the items seized from premises linked to her husband.

"It is part of the division's investigation on various aspects linked to the sovereign fund," a source said.

It is learnt also that Rosmah's sons Norashman Najib and Riza Aziz would also be called in on the same day.

Several premises linked to Najib have been raided by police since late May, where police seized cash, jewellery and other luxury items as well as documents.

In one of the raids, a premises in Precinct 10, Putrajaya, owned by the Property Management Division of the Prime Minister's Department, was combed by the Amlatfa division.
