Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor was taken into custody today while she was giving her statement at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters, here, today.

Speculation has been rife that Rosmah would be charged soon, and that she could face up to 20 criminal charges related to money laundering.

Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription. The former prime minister's wife was arrested at 3.20pm on Wednesday after being questioned for the third time by anti-graft investigators over 1MDB.

Meanwhile, her husband Najib faces more than 30 charges in connection with 1MDB and SRC International, involving hundreds of millions of US dollars deposited into his personal account.

The media today had earlier speculated that Rosmah would be charged on Thursday.

Najib, whose coalition suffered a stunning election defeat in May, faces 32 charges ranging from money laundering to abuse of power and criminal breach of trust in the effort to uncover how billions of dollars went missing from 1MDB.

At the same time, her husband was also being questioned by police in a separate location in relation to the scandal.

She is expected to spend the night at the MACC headquarters located in the administrative capital Putrajaya outside Kuala Lumpur.

Rosmah Mansor smiled at reporters but didn't speak as she was escorted into the agency's building. She was then called in again to have her statement recorded by the MACC on Sept 26.

On Sept 26, Rosmah was called in for a second round of questioning - this time on 1MDB - which lasted nearly 13 hours.

After the election loss, a stash of cash, jewelry and hundreds of designer handbags worth as much as $273 million was seized from properties linked to the couple in raids around Kuala Lumpur.
