PKR lends Rosmah’s lawyers a hand, lists ‘must sue’ targets

PKR has listed out four Twitter accounts and three international news organisations which have implicated Rosmah Mansor in the 1MDB affair, in hope that this would be of help to her legal team.

In a statement today, PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil said his party was responding to Rosmah’s threat to take legal action against those who slander her online.

This followed the US Depart of Justice’s (DOJ) third court filing to seize assets which were allegedly misappropriated from 1MDB as part of anti-money laundering efforts.

Fahmi’s list includes a Twitter account by Al Jazeera Network’s sister site AJ+, the Twitter account of the Wall Street Journal economics editor Tom Wright, the Twitter account of WSJ financial reporter Bradley Hope and the Twitter account belonging to Reuters.

He also listed articles by The New York Times, The Guardian and The Straits Times.

“To expedite the process for the legal team, I have identified (these tweets and articles) which clearly tried to link the prime minister’s wife with the 1MDB affair, although the DOJ did not mention who was ‘wife of Malaysian Official 1’.

“If what was written on Twitter or those websites were defamatory, I urge Rosmah’s lawyer to contact the Twitter account or website owners to demand a correction,” said Fahmi.

He said it was important to take action on these Twitter accounts and news websites because they were “influencers” with a global following because of their credibility.

“People who read their articles are likely to believe that they were reporting facts. Denials alone would not suffice,” said Fahmi.

Jika berani, samanlah, Dr Mahathir beritahu Rosmah
.

PETALING JAYA: Dua hari selepas peguam Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor memberi amaran sedang memantau media sosial yang membuat tuduhan fitnah, bekas perdana menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad mengulangi sebuah tuduhan terhadap isteri perdana menteri itu dan mencabar menyamannya.

“Rosmah kata dia nak buru pemfitnah, dan saya tidak takut sebab ini bukan fitnah. Berani kerana benar,” kata pengerusi PPBM itu dalam kiriman klip video di Facebook hari ini.

Beliau turut memetik laporan Jabatan Kehakiman Amerika Syarikat (DoJ) minggu lalu mengenai pembelian barang kemas bernilai AS$1.3 juta (RM5.5 juta) kepada seorang yang tidak dinamakan dengan menggunakan wang yang didakwa dilarikan daripada 1MDB.

“Jika berani, samanlah kami. Saya bersedia,” kata Dr Mahathir.

Just sue DOJ, Dr Mahathir tells Rosmah

19 June 2017
.

Prime Minister’s wife Rosmah Mansor should take legal action against the United States Department of Justice if she feels she has been slandered, said former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia chairperson said this after Rosmah’s lawyer issued a statement warning publications and social media users of the risk of legal action if Rosmah is slandered.

“I heard Rosmah will sue whoever who accuses her in relation to the jewellery mentioned in the filing by the United States Department of Justice.

“Why didn’t she pose the same challenge to the DOJ?” Mahathir asked via video recording uploaded onto his Facebook page.
.

“Rosmah says she wants to hunt down slanderers so I am not afraid because this is not slander. I am brave because I speak the truth…

“Sue us if she dares. I am ready,” Mahathir said in the caption of the video.

Rosmah sets lawyers upon social media to hunt down ‘slanderers’
.

Prime Minister Najib Razak’s wife Rosmah Mansor has instructed her lawyers to closely monitor the social media for “attacks and false allegations” against her.

According to her law firm, NoorHajran Mohd Noor said their lawyers are “closely monitoring all postings appearing on any social media platforms and other forms of publications in relation to false and malicious attacks” against its client.

“Recently more malicious and baseless attacks have surfaced and made against Rosmah Mansor on blogs and social medias (sic).

“These attacks are false allegations made without any proof and/or basis, done with malice with the sole intent of putting Rosmah Mansor in disrepute casting aspersions of alleged wrongdoings causing harm and injury to her reputation,” said the firm in a statement today.

NoorHajran Mohd Noor said those found to have done so would face legal action without further notice.

The statement, however, did not elaborate on the circumstances surrounding which, such alleged attacks are being made.

’s first lady linked to worth $30 mn bought with funds
.

Nearly $30 million of funds stolen from scandal-hit 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) was used to buy jewellery for the prime minister’s wife, including a rare 22-carat pink diamond set in a necklace, according to the latest filings by the US justice department in a civil lawsuit.

The filings lodged at the US district court in Los Angeles on Thursday did not identify Prime Minister Najib Razak or his wife Rosmah Mansor by name, but said the jewellery purchases were for the wife of “Malaysian Official 1”.

Malaysian and US government sources have previously confirmed that “Malaysian Official 1“ refers to Najib.

The diamond necklace set alone cost $27.3 million, according to latest filings in the lawsuit that was launched in July last year.
.
A total of $4.5 billion have been misappropriated from 1MDB, the justice department said on Thursday. The fund was set up by Najib in 2009 to promote economic development.

The department is seeking to seize a total of about $1.7 billion in assets that were bought with misappropriated funds, including a Picasso painting given to actor Leonardo DiCaprio and the rights to two Hollywood films.

“This money financed the lavish lifestyles of the alleged co-conspirators at the expense and detriment of the Malaysian people,” acting US assistant attorney general Kenneth Blanco said in a statement.

The jewelry purchases were arranged by Malaysian financier Low Taek Jho, or Jho Low, who was accused of gifting DiCaprio a $3.2 million Picasso.
.
The lawsuits show the jewellery for Rosmah was bought with funds that passed through Najib’s account. The jewellery, like the Picasso painting, was purchased with funds traceable to diverted proceeds from a 2013 bond offering by 1MDB, according to the filings.

The diamond necklace was bought in 2013, just months after $680 million was transferred to the private bank account of Najib in Kuala Lumpur, the filings show. The Malaysian government says that money came from a member of the Saudi royal family.

The necklace was purchased from New York jeweller Lorraine Schwartz, who has designed for Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Lopez and other stars of the entertainment world.

“Need a 18 carrot (carat) pink heart diamond vivid or slightly short of vivid. On diamond necklace urgent,” Low said in a text message to Schwartz in June 2013, the filings said.

A month later Schwartz showed the necklace in Monaco to a group of people, including Rosmah, on board Topaz, one of the largest private yachts in the world. Low had chartered the 147-metre yacht for seven days in early July 2013, according to the filings.

Aide thanks minister for exposing opposition’s plan to run down Rosmah
.

Rizal Mansor has thanked Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak for exposing the opposition’s alleged plan to relaunch a campaign to run down Rosmah Mansor.

“As someone who knows Rosmah, I am saddened by this development,” said the aide to the prime minister’s wife.

Rizal said despite Malaysia having achieved its independence almost six decades ago, and when her people are mature in politics, the opposition is still using personal attacks to gain political traction.

“In light of this sacred month of Ramadan, I humbly request the opposition to discard such politics.

“Touting themselves as an alternative to BN, they should be debating national policies in a rational manner and put aside bad practices as well as cheap politics for the interest of the people,” he added.

Minister claims opposition recycling Rosmah stories to divert attention

Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak has hit out at the opposition for relaunching its campaign against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s wife, Rosmah Mansor.

According to him, this is being done to divert attention from the issues plaguing the opposition.

“The opposition is circulating fabricated stories not supported by any evidence alleging all sorts of things regarding Rosmah.

“In fact, many of these stories have already been proven false when they first came out years ago. So, again, Malaysia is being feasted with an orgy of lies,” he said in a blog posting today.

It is unclear, however, whom in particular the minister was referring to.

Spending public funds for a private jet?

Stephen Ng

COMMENT When former prime minister’s wife Endon Mahmood was fighting against cancer, she travelled to the United Kingdom for her chemotherapy treatment. As far as I remember, she took a public flight.

I am told that whenever she stayed in a particular hotel, she had a spot in the breakfast lounge where she would have her meal. She did not expect VIP treatment, but the waiters and waitresses at the restaurant automatically respected her and reserved the place for her.

Such was Endon, a woman of great honour and well-loved by Malaysians at large. She knew how to be chaste and remain humble.

So did the wives of other prime ministers, including former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s wife, Dr Siti Hasmah Mohamad Ali, who have contributed to the nation for many decades in so many areas that I think she deserves the Tunship that she was conferred.

Dr Siti Hasmah was the first Malay lady doctor in the country, an achievement that we should all be proud of.

Yet, none of these wives of the country’s former prime ministers is known to have hired private jets for their oversea trips, whatever the occasion.

At least, there was no such allegation hurled against them, even during Dr Mahathir’s era in the manner that Rafizi Ramli could pinpoint of Rosmah Mansor. Rosmah is the only wife of a Malaysian prime minister who has been known to jet-set around in private jets.

With the country currently going through a bad economic patch, such extravagance by someone who is not even recognised as a government leader should have been avoided.

Hearing the explanation given by her aide Rizal Mansor, I doubt if there is any good reason for her to go on a private jet.

She would have to choose between attending the Girl Guides event and the 3G Children Welfare Award at the Global Good Governance Award 2016 in Istanbul.

If even prime ministers and ministers have been known to miss certain events, there is no reason for Rosmah to spend public funds for a private jet.

What Rafizi has discovered has been confirmed by Rizal himself. Unless Rizal is telling us that Rosmah had paid for the private jet, in my opinion, Rosmah has no business in hiring the Airbus A-319 private jet owned by Emirates Airlines for her private trip to Istanbul.

Aide: Rosmah helped thousands of children but what has done?

The aide to prime minister’s wife Rosmah Mansor has fired salvoes at PKR secretary-gneral Rafizi Ramli for revealing her boss’ use of a private jet.

Rizal Mansor said the revelation was intended to create a negative perception against Rosmah amid the Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar by-elections.

“He should be using the campaign period to tell the rakyat what his party has contributed to the rakyat and not raise questions that are unrelated to the by-elections.

“At least, Rosmah inspired a programme that has benefited thousands of children and this programme even received international recognition.

“What kind of programme has YB (Rafizi) done?” he said in a statement to Malaysiakini.

For Rosmah, Rafizi embarks on hairy campaign

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s wife has found an unlikely white knight in the form of opposition lawmaker Rafizi Ramli.

He has responded to Rosmah Mansor’s lament about her hairdo costing RM1,200.

Feeling her pain, the Pandan MP announced on twitter a spin off of his earlier popular #TurunHargaKereta campaign which forced BN to counter with its own pledge to slash car prices during the 13th general election.

Rafizi dubbed the new campaign #turunhargadandanrambut, or reduce hairdo prices, and with a similar black and yellow banner from his previous campaign, except this time it is replaced with what appears to be an outcrop of Rosmah’s unique hairstyle.

The PKR secretary-general posted the banner on Twitter, declaring: “Support #turunhargadandanrambut to lessen Rosmah’s hairstyling burden. Easier still, she should just cover aurat”.

Rosmah’s hair makes waves on global news

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s wife Rosmah Mansor has again found herself caught in the international limelight for the wrong reasons.

This time, news of her RM1,200 hairdo has been picked up  by international news portals.

An Agence France-Presse (AFP) report was republished by British tabloid The Daily Mail, Singapore-based The Straits Times and Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post.

The article said Rosmah – who is “widely mocked over reports of her taste for luxury” – had handed her critics new fuel with her laments made on Monday, quoting the social media comments of several Malaysians.

Asian Correspondent and Singapore’s Today Online also reported on how her remarks have landed her in hot water.

Critics tear their hair over PM’s wife Rosmah Mansor

Embedded image permalink

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – The wife of Malaysia’s prime minister, who is widely mocked over reports of her taste for luxury, drew fresh scorn on Tuesday after she complained about the rising cost of house calls from hairdressers and tailors.

The wife of Prime Minister Najib Razak handed her critics new fuel with comments on Monday lamenting the RM1,200 (S$450.39) she has to spend on house calls by stylists to dye her substantial head of hair, and RM500 for tailored dresses.

“We have to make beautiful clothes to attend functions, but the prices are way too high. For those who can afford, it’s all right. But what about housewives like us, with no income?” she was quoted as saying by the Malaysian Insider news portal.

Malaysia’s minimum wage is RM900 per month, though critics say it is seldom enforced.

Rosmah made the comments at a public event to discuss the introduction of a new consumer tax in April.

“Is this woman for real? Some families have to live on what she pays to have her hair dyed,” said one Facebook user, among a flood of social media postings poking fun at her on Tuesday.

Said a post on Twitter: “I hope to become a poor housewife of a civil servant just like you Rosmah.” Since her husband took office in 2009, Rosmah has faced periodic criticism over reports of luxury overseas shopping sprees.

Ahmad Maslan snipped over Rosmah’s hairdo

A PKR lawmaker has taken Deputy Finance Minister Ahmad Maslan to task for being more interested in Rosmah Mansor’s hairdo as opposed to more pressing concerns of the people.

This is after Ahmad Maslan vowed to look into the prime minister’s wife’s complaint that dyeing her hair through home service cost a whopping RM1,200.

“Why is Ahmad Maslan prioritising the prime minister’s wife hairdo instead of knowledge and health care for the rakyat?” asked Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar.

She pointed out that pharmaceutical groups have for several months aired concern that the implementation of the goods and services tax (GST) will cause the price of medicines to increase.

The PKR vice-president added that Ahmad’s attitude who had prioritised complaints by the wives of ministers only showed that the BN government did not place the rakyat’s interests first.

“Is action going to be taken only when the price of hairdos for the ministers’ wives increases?

“What about the plight of the lower and middle class who continue to face the rising cost of living? Where’s the ‘people first’ slogan?” Nurul Izzah queried.

Rosmah craves “sambal belacan” when on holiday

September 18, 2014

PM’s wife candidly speaks about her overseas travels at the launch of a guidebook on Malaysia.

KUALA LUMPUR: Rosmah Mansor, wife of Prime Minister Najib Razak, spoke candidly about herself and her travels overseas at a book launch today.

“I prefer tourists who are willing to spend lavishly while on holiday in Malaysia as opposed to those who are particular about sticking to a tight budget,” she said when giving a speech at the launch of the travel guidebook called “The Guide to Malaysia”.

Creating good rapport with her audience, Rosmah also talked about food cravings while overseas and said that just like many other Malaysians who packed local favourites when travelling, she and her husband packed “sambal belacan”.

She said, “Eventually the cravings for ‘sambal belacan’ start no matter how good the food is overseas.”

Rosmah shocks with ‘IF YOU DIE TOMORROW’ comments

Written by J. D. Lovrenciear

The Malaysian Insider reports (Monday, 1 September 2014), that Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor had said in her speech, “If they die tomorrow, they have to ask me for forgiveness.”

The report says that our Prime Minister’s wife was addressing an audience at the Second Picoms Convocation at Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur. Datin Seri who was speaking as the head of PERMATA Negara Project is reported to have taken serious issue with certain quarters who have been seemingly being nasty critics of her pet project.

As a spouse of the nation’s number one leader, indeed it is cringing to hear Rosmah say such words – if what is reported is true. What kind of speech is that? Who was the speech writer if any? Did she not vett before spilling the words as they were?

Nobody says such things in a formal function. Worst still on stage and before rolling cameras mind you.

We do not say things like this do we? It is not an Asian culture; neither is it a western culture to talk like that. Forget about the asking for forgiveness part for now and let learned religious leaders deal with it; but you certainly do not tell your critics in public, “if you die tomorrow”.

The report further quotes Rosmah having said that the audience should not “believe what (they) hear”.

“Never mind the criticism. I am strong. I am sincere.” said Rosmah according to Malaysian Insider.

Again, even a novice speech writer would have advised that these are wrong words to use when addressing an audience. You do not parade your strength with “I am strong” in public and especially if you are the spouse of the premier.

On the contrary, humility, grace and dignity must be the threads that weave a public speech for a person in position like Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor who in many ways must mirror her husband’s portfolio.

How do we deal with this then? Must we live and let live? Or should ‘forgiveness’ be the standard name of the game?

But if Malaysian Insider has mistakenly reported and if these were not the words and content of Rosmah’s speech then decisive action must be taken likewise.  – MAILBAG

Now, Rosmah sings a peace tune

July 11, 2014
By Ravinder Singh

What is Rosmah talking about telling non-Malays to join the “peace” wagon when a few Malays have been given the “democratic freedom” to condemn the others.

Rosmah needs to educate the non-Malays on the peacekeeping initiatives of a few outstanding “peacekeepers.”

Some of them are:

  • Professor Ridhuan Tee and his endless and relentless poison-pen writings about the non-Malays/non-Muslims;
  • Perkasa and its talk about burning bibles and chopping off the heads of any non-Muslims questioning the court’s judgement on the use of “Allah”;
  • Isma’s pronouncement that the non-Malays/non-Muslims are intruders;
  • The threats by certain people to burn down the offices of an opposition political party;
  • The street processions by some people bearing banners asking whether they wanted another May 13;
  • The throwing of Molotov cocktails into church compounds;
  • The throwing of a cow’s head at the gate of a Hindu home;
  • The religious police’s arrest of a Hindu bride in the midst of her wedding and the snatching of a  Chinese body just before a funeral;
  • The forced conversion of children by non-Muslims converting to Islam to punish their wives for some personal reasons; and
  • The public cutting of cockerels and offering of financial reward for slapping a woman from an opposition party who made a satirical video while Zunar’s satirical cartoons do not invite similar reaction.

Rosmah, if these be good examples of Malay peacekeeping efforts, please provide a list of the non-peacekeeping efforts by the non-Malays.

Rosmah’s denial she EMPTIES the pool each time she swims goes viral

Rosmah Mansor never fails to deliver when it comes to clicks for news article.

With a simple title, “I am not good at swimming, said Rosmah in denying the RM300, 000 water bill allegation” – the news article written in Bahasa Malaysia in news portal The Malaysian Insider, became the most read news article for the day with more than 8,000 shares in Facebook.

In the article, it was reported that Rosmah was unhappy with the lies and allegations spread about her.

One of the allegation was the RM300, 000 water utility bill for the Seri Perdana Complex before the 13th General Election.

“I am not good at swimming. If that person wanted to see me, I can tell that I am not good, I will say I don’t know, if I go to the sea, I will not swim. I will sit like in the P.Ramlee film,” she said when officiating the Wanita UMNO Nadi Negara Award 2013 and the launch of Wanita UMNO Nadi Negara Alumni event in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Rosmah, we’ll let the truth breaks all lies

YOURSAY ‘One only wonders why are there so many ‘lies’ about Rosmah.’

Rosmah: Your lies won’t break me


Toffeesturn:
PM’s wife Rosmah Mansor is surprised that today’s youth are not reading mainstream newspapers.

I am not surprised that she reads mainstream newspapers – like any person in her situation she only likes good things said about her and her husband.

The fact that she is surprised that young people do not read mainstream papers goes to show that they are more intelligent then her, they do not take to subtle lying and in many cases downright lies.

Onyourtoes: All I know is the mainstream media are spewing venom and incendiary ranting day in and day out.

All I know is if ever I need to know who was travelling on official jet for some mundane and insignificant tasks, having endless holidays staying in luxurious suites, carrying expensive handbags, looking at million ringgit diamonds, getting unworthy honorary PhDs, putting cows in condos, the bizarre story of murder without murderers, a carpet trader who seemed so powerful, a private investigator and his family being put in exile for no apparent reason, two submarines purchased for exorbitant commission, et cetera, I just have to read online news.

Now you tell me which one the things I read is not true.

Kangkung: One only wonders why are there so many ‘lies’ about Rosmah. I think the Malay proverb “Kalau tidak ada angin, masakan pokok bergoyang” sums it up aptly.

Whatsup: Your lies won’t break us too but make our resolve even stronger that Umno has to go.

It’s best you keep quiet instead of being so arrogant, thinking we rakyat are so stupid that we don’t know what have been done.

CNHT: After watching the video of you commenting on the Japanese of not protecting their environment, I feel so ashamed.

You should not have said so about the Japanese people. It just shows the lack understanding about the things you talk about.

Dalvik: No action required here. Let the truth break every lies.

HC: The membership to the ‘Hate Rosmah Club’ in now closed due to overwhelming number of applications. If you haven’t been given membership yet, please stop asking for one.

No, paying more money to me in the hope of joining isn’t going to make any difference either. For unsuccessful applicants, please go start your own club.

Before you criticize Dyana, ask ROSMAH to wear ‘tudung’ first – Umno told

PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu told The Rakyat Post that it is Rosmah who should wear the tudung first.
..

“If we want to talk about tudung, ask Rosmah to wear it first. She is the wife of the Prime Minister,” Mohamad, better known as Mat Sabu, said.

Reiterating the party’s support for Dyana Sofya, Mohamad said PAS would support any Pakatan Rakyat candidate, regardless of race.

As for PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali, he dismissed the notion that the party had two sets of rules with regards to the issue.

“This is not about having two stands. The Prime Minister’s wife should set an example,” he said, referring to Rosmah not wearing a headscarf yet.

He added that Dyana Sofya is from DAP and they can’t impose wearing a headscarf on someone from a different party.

Why attack Rosmah, not Dyana, Nabi Bux tells PAS

BUKIT GELUGOR Bukit Gelugor independent candidate has questioned PAS for criticising Rosmah Mansor, but not Teluk Intan DAP candidiate.

Mohamed Nabi Bux Mohamed Abdul Sathar said Rosmah, the wife of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, has not voiced her opposition to hudud implementation, unlike Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud.

Nabi Bux, who claims that he is a PAS member, said he is saddened that he is being isolated by PAS leaders who are willing to assist Dyana but not him, although he supports the implementation of hudud in Bukit Gelugor.

“It is not appropriate for PAS leaders especially (deputy president) Mohamad Sabu and (information chief) Mahfuz Omar, to speak out against Rosmah, whereas it’s the DAP candidate who truly does not support hudud implementation.”

Rosmah clarifies ring issue

May 02, 2013

KOTA BAHARU, May 2 — The Prime Minister’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor said lies that she owned an expensive ring were the work of irresponsible quarters in trying the make the people hate the nation’s leaders.

Rosmah reiterated that the ring was brought into the country for three days for viewing by her future in-laws who were in Malaysia then.

“That (ring) is not mine. She (future in-law) knew the seller because she was a good customer and she was the one who wanted to view the ring which had to be sent to the address of Seri Perdana (the Prime Minister’s official residence in Putrajaya).

“When the ring came in, they (the irresponsible quarters) showed the Customs forms, but when it went out no forms were shown.

“But we have got all the evidence, it was never ever had by us and was only meant for viewing and not for buying,” Rosmahsaid when handing over a replica cheque for haemodialysis machines, to Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM) in Kubang Kerian here today.

Two unpaid AES summonses against ‘Rosmah Mansor’

He related how in the UK at the height of the Mad Cow disease striking British cattle, a senior politician who asked people to keep eating local meat received brickbats when it was found out that the politician’s family does not consume local meat as the politician advocated.

One Rosmah Mansor, a registered voter in Pekan, Pahang, has been found to have two unpaid summonses under the disputed Automatic Enforcement System (AES).

She is also the registered owner of a vehicle with the number-plate XIASEAN360.

PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli, who revealed the details today after checking the MyEG website, said he believes that the car owner is the wife of BN head Najib Abdul Razak.

Malaysiakini has verified Rafizi’s claim against details on the website.

“This smacks of double standards. If (Najib) is so sure of the benefits of the AES, then he should at least ensure that the people closest to him, especially his wife, adhere to it,” Rafizi said.

KUALA LUMPUR, March 20 ― Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor has said in her biography that she was compelled to accept expensive jewellery as gifts from foreign governments out of courtesy.

“When people give you something, of course it’s not nice to reject it,” Rosmah wrote in a self-titled biography launched yesterday by former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“And when I’m given the gifts, I wear them. Why would you want to just keep them in a safe when the items were given sincerely, are beautiful and can be used? It’s a waste if they’re just kept in a safety deposit box,” the wife of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak added.

In the just-released book, Rosmah also denied buying a RM24-million diamond ring as alleged by political opponents two years ago.

Instead, she said the ring had only been brought in for a private viewing.

Rosmah was responding to allegations that she had purchased RM24 million diamond ring as claimed by the opposition two years ago.

Biography of Rosmah launched

By Rozanna Latiff

KUALA LUMPUR: “Rosmah Mansor”, a book which chronicles the life of the prime minister’s wife, was launched today by the Sultan of Pahang Sultan Ahmad Shah.

Yayasan Amanah Perdana Malaysia chairman Shamsulbahrin Ludin, the book’s publisher, said the new biography will allow readers a well-rounded glimpse into Rosmah’s life from her childhood to the present.
“Some of the facts presented in this book have never been told to anyone before.”
Its highlights, he said, include her marriage to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak – in particular, the challenges she faced first as the wife of a cabinet minister, deputy prime minister and now the country’s leader.
Written in an informal and relaxed tone, the book features stories from her school days at Tunku Kursiah College, Negeri Sembilan, and includes interviews with her closest friends.
 …………..
The book also includes a special chapter in which Rosmah addresses the public rumours surrounding her life, whether regarding her family or her involvement in current events.
 ……………
The 164-page biography also details her involvement in community work, especially her efforts to develop the Permata Negara programme, her engagement with non-government organisations as well as her participation in Bakti and in various international programmes.
It also showcases a collection of old and recent photographs.
The book’s soft launch was held as part of Rosmah’s birthday celebration, which included performances by singer Misha Omar and students from the Permata Seni programme.
Present at the ceremony were the Royal Consort of Pahang Sultanah Hajjah Kalsom, Najib and Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Ahmad Maslan.

Rosmah – Young people don’t believe news on the web

Saturday, March 16, 2013 – 18:09
Location:
SHAH ALAM


DATIN
Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of the prime minister, today advised IT-savvy young people against easily believing stories circulating on the Internet, including libellous information about her.

She said that as educated people, they should not easily believe the posts on the Internet without checking on the validity of the source.

“Now, there is a web post which alleges that I pretended to host a special prayer (for the safety and well-being of the security forces fighting the Sulu terrorists in Sabah).

“Therefore, do not believe easily all information posted on the Internet,” she said when opening a seminar on “Young People, the Country’s Asset” and the Selangor Youth Council (MBS) annual meeting, here.

Rosmah said young people, as the country’s priceless asset, should verify the truth of posts on the Internet.

She said they should not tarnish the good name of their family and the country.

Be the country’s priceless asset and do not misbehave, like participating in unruly demonstrations, she added.

UKM students ‘welcome’ Rosmah with placards

Harakahdaily, 27 February 2013


Feb 27: A group of university students today greeted the prime minister’s wife on a visit to their campus with placards mocking her much-talked about controversies.

Some 50 students from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Islamic Study Circle (ISIUKM) gathered outside the Tun Abdul Razak hall where Rosmah Mansor was the guest of honour for a programme involving students.
……….

This afternoon, about half an hour before the programme ended at 4.30 pm, students gathered and held placards mocking her, including one which read “We want Rosmah to be the PM”. Another poked fun at her interest in a RM24 million diamond ring.

However, Rosmah avoided the students and was quickly ushered into another vehicle. She had earlier arrived in a Mercedes Benz.

Does Rosmah enjoy absolute immunity?

Jeswan Kaur | February 21, 2013

How is it that the PM’s wife can get away with sorcery and corruption while human rights activists fighting for reforms are branded traitors and a threat to society?

COMMENT


Feb 14 is frowned upon by the Malaysian Department of Islamic Development (Jakim), the National Fatwa Council and just about all ulamas of this country; to them Valentine’s Day is a blasphemy against Islam, the nation’s dominant and official religion.

These same religious authorities go berserk if Muslims attend any such event organised by the non-Malays, the former’s excuse being that Malays are under threat of proselytisation. In both instances, the fear and insecurity is unjustified.

But when an online news site reported recently that the country’s leader’s wife practises witchcraft, not a single religious body or ulamas had the courage to condemn her for this.

The woman concerned is Rosmah Mansor, wife of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, the man whom the rakyat has come to realise is impotent in the face of his wife’s Machiavellian deeds.

Where are the opinionated ulamas like Perak’s resident mufti Harussani Zakaria who was dismayed when Najib attended the Thaipusam celebration at Batu Caves last year?

I want untold millions to be at my disposal to be disposed of in foreign land in foreign shops with foreign-designed handbags, shoes and dresses.

There are also causes I wish to champion, charities….

PM’s wife swears to God she doesn’t have the ring
5:10PM Jan 18, 2013

Apparently taking a leaf from her husband Najib Abdul Razak’s book, the premier’s wife, Rosmah Mansor, said she can swear to god that she had never owned the RM24 million luxury ring as alleged by the opposition.

However, Rosmah admitted that she saw the ring when it was brought into Malaysia to be displayed to “those who have money”.

“I dare to swear, I dare to swear to Allah that I don’t have the ring on my hand at all.

NONE“Indeed, the ring was brought in to be shown to those who have money. I don’t have money, so I just viewed (and felt) it was ‘very, very nice’, that’s all,” she said during a dinner with military veterans at the Defence Ministry in Kuala Lumpur last night.

A footage showing the speech has been uploaded on Youtube by news portal KLPos.

Although Rosmah did not specify, it is believed that she was referring to the allegation by former PKR central committee member Badrul Hisham Shaharin in 2011.

Deepak’s ‘Black Rose’ to be released as ebook

Carpet merchant Deepak Jaikishan’s book The Black Rose will be released as a free ebook beginning tomorrow.

The book is expected to chronicle his involvement with a VIP’s wife in allegedly coercing private investigator P Balasubramaniam into retracting his statutory declaration in 2008.

Deepak was supposed to have launched the book at the press conference today, but decided against due to legal reasons.

“The objective of today’s press conference is about the book launch as well as the details of my transactions on the land that is sold to Boustead Holdings Bhd.

“But due to the nature of the exposé made by (PKR strategy director) Rafizi Ramli late this afternoon, I have been advised by my solicitors to sit still until (we) reply to Rafizi,” he said at a press conference today.

However, he declined to comment if Rafizi allegations were factual, citing legal advice.

He said his lawyers would take “a day or two” to reply to Rafizi before continuing with his own exposés, and blamed Rafizi for derailing his plans to launch his book today.

The  documents acquired by Rafizi shows funds transfer from Deepak’s Carpet Raya Sdn Bhd and Carpet Plus Sdn Bhd to several luxury jewelers in Hong Kong, being what Deepak had claimed were his purchase of jewellery for Rosmah.

Among others, an email from luxury jeweler Dehres Ltd shows a file attachment of a Microsoft Excel file bearing the name “Datin Mansor Rosmah ($115,000) Feb 12 08”. The file shows an invoice made to Carpet Raya for the purchase of “one lot of polished diamonds” at a price of US$115,000 (RM408,250).

Rafizi also showed a Maybank payment slip showing the transfer of the amount from Carpet Raya to Dehres.

Another set of documents contains invoices from Firestone Co Ltd, showing the purchase of several diamond jewelleries worth some RM5.3 million, which was paid in April 2009. Rafizi said checks with the company as well as with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council proved that the invoices were not fake.

As such, Rafizi said Deepak’s claim that he spent a whopping RM13 million within three months on jewellery for Rosmah should be treated by the authorities as a “serious allegation, what more when Deepak has documented proofs”.

PKR Youth plans to flood Rosmah’s mail box

PKR Youth will be organising a mass mailing of postcards to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s wife, Rosmah Mansor, to exert pressure on her to break her silence on the recent series of expose by businessperson Deepak Jaikishan.

“We think Rosmah needs to answer the revelations by Deepak, she should not just keep quiet.

“She is the most powerful woman in the country so we hope she will come out and answer these questions, the people want to know the truth, said PKR Youth information chief Lee Khai Loon (right) when contacted.

PKR Youth has printed a special postcard for the premier’s wife, featuring a cartoon of her with the words Tanya Rosmah (ask Rosmah) and three questions in bubble dialogue.They read: Is Najib’s oath that he does not know Altantuya true? , Is is true that Deepak was instructed to force Balasubramaniam to disavow his SD linking Najib to Altantuya? and Why remain silent until now even after Deepak’s revelations?

It ain’t over till the FLOM sings

One moment, both Najib and Rosmah (right) are riding high on the wave of public opinion and their belief that “we can do no wrong”. Next moment, they are at rock bottom and having to fend off accusations; hence the book. Did she publish details of her life and her rise to prominence, out of conceit or an act of desperation?

Surely the book is not the best medium to “explain” herself, if it is true that Malaysians only read two-and-a-half pages a year.
……………..

‘Overpriced biography’

If Rosmah’s biography is priced at RM150, the likelihood is that the book will not be widely distributed throughout the country.  Many Malaysians balk at paying RM20 for a book and one costing RM5 might induce the cash-strapped Malaysian to pry open their wallets.

Sometimes, it is difficult to give away free books to tight Malaysians. On the other hand, try to entice the average Malaysian with the latest mobile, and he will be happy to fork-out a few hundred ringgit. Electronic must-have accessories, yes; Books, no!

Who is Rosmah’s target market? Most of the country’s rural people and many of the urbanites could not afford the book. Which part of the community is she trying to convince? Is it Umno people? Is this her way of gauging their loyalty?

So, the overpriced biography is another method to inflate Rosmah’s ego and is definitely another coffee table book which will adorn the homes of the rich, Umno cronies; especially those who pretend they are cultured and love to read by having a Louis Farouk showcase of books in their homes.

Rosmah memoir set to counter claims

December 10, 2012

An entire chapter of the book will be dedicated to countering the claims made against Rosmah. — File pic

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 10 ― Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor will answer to issues and “defamatory” allegations against her in a biography to be released in January, according to publisher Yayasam Amanah Perdana Malaysia (YAPM).

The foundation’s officials said today one chapter in the 164-page book about the prime minister’s wife will be dedicated to rebutting the allegations, without identifying the specific claims.

“The interesting chapter is a frank question-and-answer chapter, and she (Rosmah) will honestly answer all the issues and allegations,” her publishing advisor, Ahmad Maslan, was quoted as saying by the Malaysiakini news portal today.

He also said this was one of the objectives in publishing the biography, which will contain numerous photographs and details from the life of Rosmah leading from her childhood to the present.

“If there are 10 objectives, one would be to answer accusations, to tell the story of who she ― who is always being misconstrued ― really is.

“It’s not to (merely) answer allegations but to paint the true picture of who Rosmah is and what she champions,” said Ahmad.

Rosmah has right to have high profile, says Mahathir

The prime minister’s wife, Rosmah Mansor, has the right to have as high a profile as she likes, said Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The former premier was asked whether he thinks that Rosmah’s profile has become too high compared to that of the wives of previous  prime ministers.

“There is no standard format to fill if you become the wife of the prime minister. You can be as prominent as you like,” he said after an event at the Malaysian Petroleum Club in Kuala Lumpur today.

NONEHe also said Rosmah has the right to rebut allegations against her via her biography, for which a pre-launch event was held yesterday.

The book is said to “honestly answer” issues and defamatory allegations linked to her.

“I think if you keep on making accusations against her and she replies, you say ‘Well, why do you reply, it’s too high profile?’ Is she supposed to keep quiet and not reply?” Mahathir said, noting that it all boils down to the people’s views on Rosmah.

Dr M: Rosmah’s biography good move

December 11, 2012

The biography, to be launched next month, will give Rosmah the right avenue to rebut wild allegations made against her, says Mahathir.

KUALA LUMPUR: The soon-to-be-released biography of the prime minister’s wife, Rosmah Mansor is the most appropriate avenue for the latter to rebut wild accusations thrown against her, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said.

He said Rosmah had the right to make corrections to all negative issues concerning her by certain irresponsible quarters.

“She (Rosmah) is not going high profile. Only those people made her a high profile figure by all sorts of accusations and she has the right to reply.

“Although she is the prime minister’s wife, it does not mean that she has to keep quiet to all sorts of accusations,” Mahathir told reporters after witnessing the RM63 million Assets and Technologies Acquisition Agreement signing ceremony between Proton Holdings Bhd and Petronas Bhd, here today.

On Monday, the pre-launch of the biography was officiated by the Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Shah who was accompanied by the Sultanah of Pahang, Sultanah Kalsom and Prime Minister Najib.

The 164-page book which is priced at RM150, was written by Siti Rohayah Attan and Noraini Abdul Razak, and slated to be launched and distributed next month.

Now showing: ‘Bollywood queen’ Rosmah prancing on stage to ‘Jai Ho’

Harakahdaily, 15 November 2012

Nov 15: Rosmah Mansor, the controversial wife of prime minister Najib Razak, looks set to be thrust into public limelight again, following the appearance of a new YouTube video.

The blurry two-minute video clip (click here), uploaded very recently alongside many duplicate clips, shows the 61-year old taking centre stage among other performers dancing to the tune of the Hindi hit song ‘Jai Ho’.

Dressed in a Bollywood outfit, Rosmah is seen being viewed and cheered by the crowd watching her performance from a projector screen.

It is not clear when or where the video was shot, but a glimpse of the backdrop suggests that the occasion was held two years ago.

Team Mahathir VS Team Rosmah

Bagi yang paham tentang politik dalam umNO, mereka semua setuju bahawa Najib sedang menerima tekanan yang kuat daripada Team Muhyidin untuk berundur daripada jawatan Presiden umNO, sekaligus daripada jawatan Perdana Menteri. Kita semua tau, sape yang dibelakang Muhyiddin kalau bukan apa nama…apa nama…..syaitan…opss..Mahathir. Perancangan Mahathir untuk naikkan Muhyiddin sebagai Presiden umNO dan Perdana Menteri bukan perkara main-main kerana jika Muhyiddin jadi Presiden umNO dan Perdana Menteri, urusan Mahathir untuk angkat anaknya Mukriz lagi senang. Mana tak senang Muhyiddin pemimpin bangang yang pandai angguk lebih hebat berbanding Pak Lah dan bini Rosmah .

RM111m ‘for’ Rosmah’s Permata?

Mohd Ariff Sabri Aziz | October 11, 2012

Permata has thus far sucked up RM2 billion of taxpayers’ money. It’s the black hole in Najib’s budget with no one knowing how the money was or is being used.

COMMENT

An interesting area that has raised many an eyebrow and has set Malaysian tongues wagging is the budget allocation for the education section.

Note a whopping RM1.2 billion has been allocated for pre-school education. And of this Rosmah Mansor’s pet project, Permata Negara Programme, has been allocated RM111 million.

Now, what has Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s wife, Rosmah, done to deserve RM111 million? Or, for that matter, what has Permata Negara programme done and achieved?

What Permata has done is to suck up taxpayers’ money to the tune of RM2 billion thus far.

Chong Wei’s highest praise came from Lin Dan, NOT Rosmah or Manoharan

Written by  Goh Keat Peng

For me, the highest compliments for Chong Wei came not from his own home fans (a large group of whom even went to receive him at the airport upon his return home in such an early hour). Nor from political personages of all sides. Even though their admiration and gratitude for him have been very considerable.

Notwithstanding this, the highest compliments for Chong Wei came from the sportsman who was across the badminton net from him. The relief that came upon Lin Dan when the final shuttle dropped out of play was quite excessive and revealing. He was well and truly relieved! Clearly he could not have been overconfident nor did he take victory for granted. For him, his opponent was no pushover and the match was not a foregone conclusion, and he was certainly not a sure winner. And the actual play itself by both players proved this and demonstrated their superlative skills, fitness and mutual respect.

The match most certainly could have gone either way, finally settled by a mere two points. There was (and always will be in any sport) a little bit of luck involved in the winning as well as in the losing. Both finalists should be roundly thanked for such an accomplished performance and for taking badminton to such high standards. And in Chong Wei’s case, he accomplished this feat and posed such a serious threat to the ambition of Lin Dan in spite of a serious injury he had sustained just a few months back. Just think of what discipline, resolve, commitment and diligence he must have summoned to be able to do so.

This is such a fitting tribute and model of the 2012 Olympic Games’ motto to “INSPIRE A GENERATION”. No doubt many young Malaysians will be the beneficiaries of such good sportsmen!

Manoharan’s mess

Yet despite these facts and realities, one elected representative of the people in our midst must see fit to embarass himself, his political colleagues, the high office he holds in the state legislature and, not least, his constituents by making some deplorable and ill-conceived remarks about the country’s foremost sportsman even by making a play on his name.

What is even more alarming to Malaysians is that this particular occurrence is not an isolated one. By no means. Quite a few others behave and speak somewhat in this careless, disrespectful fashion too. Be they sexist, racist, religious innuendos, all have been disrespectful, offensive and unwarranted of the highest order. And in very high places at that.

There was even a case where a clearly sexist comment was made by a very high ranking officer of the corridors of government when a women’s delegation met him! Even the most sincere apologies made publicly will seem lame when compared to the deed or statements made.

Not all deserve to elected reps

And for concerned Malaysians already much peeved and certainly not amused by the antics of quite a few Malaysian politicians, this is living proof that not all who have seats in our august state assemblies and federal parliament ought to be there. Not unless they undergo discipline, training in etiquette and good manners and earn the respect of others because they have demonstrably learned to respect others.

The conduct and words of our elected representatives must also be of the standard whereby they inspire a generation of Malaysians. This goes for others of us too who are neither sportsmen/women nor politicians but voters. Spectators of sports events and voters of governments alike are subjected to the same high standards we require of our sportsmen/women and elected representatives of the people.

The badminton match is over and the two players gave a very good account of themselves and fully deserved accolades from fans and pundits alike in their own countries and the world over.
………..

Chong Wei’s highest praise came from Lin Dan, NOT Rosmah or Manoharan

———————————————————————————————————–

Malaysians just don’t like Rosmah, that’s all: Raja Petra

(Harakah) – Saturday’s disappointing finish for Malaysia at the men’s badminton finals in London may have sinked in, but the trip to the London Olympics by the prime minister’s wife has threatened to develop into another side show intensely discussed by Malaysians.

Hours before the much-awaited game that ended with Lee Chong Wei’s defeat, Rosmah Mansor, wife of Najib Razak, announced that she had instructed the Malaysian embassy in London to fly Malaysian flags to show support to the national shuttler.

But despite her position as patron of the Badminton Association of Malaysia, many have questioned the need for her presence in London, with no less wanting to know how much of taxpayers’ money was spent this time on her overseas trip.

For blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin, the whole issue has more to do with the well-known public dislike for Rosmah.

“Hence her trip to London is being condemned, not because she is the Patron of BAM, but because she is Rosmah Mansor. It is okay if the Patron of BAM goes to London as long as it is not Rosmah,” he commented, while admitting that he had predicted Malaysia’s defeat due to Rosmah’s presence.

Petra contrasted the public disquiet over Rosmah’s trip to the high regard Malaysians have for BAM’s former patron, Dr Siti Hasmah Ali, wife of former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

“Even those who hated Dr Mahathir did not hate Dr Siti Hasmah. Many, in fact, had high regards and loads of respect for Dr Siti Hasmah. They still do. While they may curse Dr Mahathir and pray for him to suffer a terrible death, they do not do the same to Dr Siti Hasmah,” he said.

ANYTHING BUT ROSMAH? … BAM patron Rosmah Mansor (left) and her predecessor Siti Hasmah

Petra advised Najib that Rosmah now threatened to be a liability.

“Najib Tun Razak should understand by now that the anger towards his wife is very strong and the less her name pops up in the news the better. And don’t think that if Lee Chong Wei had won gold it would have been any different,” he added.

Najib had earlier told reporters that his wife had made the decision to fly to London “immediately” after Chong Wei’s victory at the semi-finals.

The couple had frequently been in the limelight over their overseas trips. Last June, it was revealed their tour to three Western cities cost the government RM3 million. Despite the government’s claim that the trip ended in Washington, it later admitted that the official plane carrying them had stopped in Milan, Italy, where they stopped for a vacation.

TOP CHEERLEADER ROSMAH FAILS! Olympic dream eludes Chong Wei

Written by  Maria Begum, Malaysia Chronicle

UPDATED It was a disappointed Malaysia that watched China’s Lin Dan deliver the final killing shot to beat local hero Lee Chong Wei for the Olympic badminton gold medal.

But sad though Malaysians were, few were angry with the 29-year-old Chong Wei because it was clear he tried his best. Lin Dan was in top form, using his superior height, strength and thunderbolt smashes to win in 3 sets 15-21. 21-10 and 21-19.

“I’m sorry,” Chong Wei said on Twitter soon after the game on Sunday night.

…………

As for Rosmah Mansor, the Prime Minister’s wife who controversially flew over to London the night before to cheer on Chong Wei, many political watchers could not help but wonder – was it her fault that Chong Wei lost?

Did she add to the already pressure cooker-like atmosphere in the Malaysian badminton camp?

In all fairness, that may be unlikely given that Chong Wei is a seasoned professional used to intense international competition. Yet even Rosmah herself suggested that Lady Luck played a deciding factor in the game.

“All badminton fans should be satisfied and not disappointed because Chong Wei has given his best performance. It’s just that Lin Dan is a bit luckier,” Rosmah told the Malaysian media at the Wembley Arena.

RM26 million and ballooning still

However, even if Chong Wei had won, Rosmah would still face a grilling when she returns from London. After all, her trip was deemed unnecessary and the costs for it should not be passed onto taxpayers.

“If it had been at her own expense, then that’s up to her as long as she didn’t add to Chong Wei’s stress. If it was on public money and given the historical records of her habits of being a ‘free-loader’, she should be more circumspect,” PAS MP for Kuala Selangor Dzulkefly Ahmad told Malaysia Chronicle.

“Tough times are ahead for us all with the global slowdown in swing and Rosmah as the PM’s wife should set a more responsible example at a time when we should be advising folks to go easy on luxuries and the unnecessary.”

Since assuming office in April 2009, Rosmah and Prime Minister Najib Razak have gone on 74 overseas trip with 1,108 accompanying officers. They travelled most frequent in 2011, with a total of 27 trips costing RM12 million in public funds. This year alone, RM5 million was spent on eight trips.

The bill so far – a staggering RM26 million or an average of RM620,000 per month. And that’s before Rosmah’s latest last-minute flight to London 2012!

Rosmah the Jonah
  • Mariam Mokhtar
  • 11:14AM Aug 6, 2012

The self-styled First Lady Rosmah Mansor and British Prime Mnister David Cameron share one thing in common; their presence at sporting events is unwelcome.

When Cameron watches British sports personalities compete or sends them ‘good luck’ messages, they have gone on to lose in their events. The ‘curse of Cameron’ fills them with dread.

NONE

After the Thomas Cup loss (2010) and yesterday’s Olympic badminton final, is Rosmah aware that people think she is jinxed and that she is now known as ‘Rosmah the Jonah’?

Rosmah also makes a mockery of her husband, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s declaration: “We hear your problems on the cost of living.”

The announcement that she would fly to London to support Lee Chong Wei, Malaysia’s most hopeful 2012 Olympic participant, sparked an unprecedented amount of criticism. Her last-minute gesture of support does not appear to be genuine and her trip to London is badly judged, ill-timed and seems self-serving.

Why should Rosmah be allowed to steal the thunder from Lee? Why add to his pressures?

Rosmah rushes for a slice of Chong Wei’s limelight

Written by  Maria Begum, Malaysia Chronicle

Rosmah Mansor, wife of the Malaysian Prime Minister, has been keeping a low profile.

The ‘wild-spending’ ‘shopping-queen’ has tried not to ruffle feathers after raising a ruckus with a string of doctorates controversially bestowed by several universities, and especially after the stink caused by an expose’ in the US newspapers that alleged her soon-to-be son-in-law and his mother were international swindlers on Scotland Yard’s most wanted list.

But the ever eager to be in the limelight Rosmah simply could not refuse to bask in the limelight of Malaysia’s top shuttler Lee Chong Wei who fought like a tiger to down his opponent last night and enter the finals of the London Olympics 2012.

According to the New Straits Times, Rosmah will leave for London tonight to lend her support to Chong Wei. The shuttler will create history if he wins Malaysia’s first-ever Olympics gold.

“We are not being calculative or petty but is it necessary to spend so much to go to London. Chong Wei knows the whole of Malaysia will be watching his every move on TV live telecast. He knows how much the whole nations wants him to win,” Eddie Wong, a PKR veteran told Malaysia Chronicle.

“Rosmah is unnecessary, I fear she only wants in on the photo that will surely be hit the newspapers all around the world should he win. And should he falter, she will be there to console him and draw sympathy comments. I am not sure she can improve her profile with such opportunism.”
