Former Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak and his wife were questioned separately on October 3 by investigators over a multi-billion-dollar scandal that brought down his government.

"Rosmah will face several charges", the agency said in a statement on Wednesday, adding that the charges covered infringements of a law against money laundering and other unlawful activities.

The agency says Rosmah Mansor was detained at its headquarters in the Putrajaya government administrative center about four hours after she arrived for a third round of questioning over alleged theft and money laundering at the 1MDB state investment fund.

Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor has been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

"Rosmah will be taken to the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court on Oct 4, 2018 at 8am to be charged", the statement read.

She was summoned regarding beleaguered sovereign wealth fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad's (1MDB) subsidiary SRC International Sdn Bhd and the anti-graft body's investigation into money laundering.

The agency did not say if the charges against her related to 1MDB.

Clad in a light green baju kurung and matching headscarf, Rosmah looked calm as she walked past the gathered media.

Rosmah has always been in the public eye over her penchant for handbags, jewelry and shopping sprees. She is expected to face more than 20 charges, mostly for money laundering.

Nooryana also said that no matter the circumstances, she would stand by the woman who gave birth to her, cared for her when she was sick and taught her to be independent.

The source said that among the issues that will be raised during the interrogation is the purchase of over RM1 million (S$332,000) worth of hormone-based anti-ageing products from the United States.
