RR73 mil diamond ring for Rosmah?
OMG..The report below was recieved from a friend of mine who is also the owner of Photo Today . If the information is correct than Najib has to step down to enable government agency like MACC, police, Immigration to do their job without being interference from Najib. When I look at the diamond ring supposedly belong to Rosmah Mansor, deep inside I asked myself how much is Najib salary or allowance? This also remind me how poor the women of the longhouse. To the Iban especially the women out there...The price of Rosmah's diamond is enough to supply electricity to more than 5 longhouses!
Please read the article that I recieved from the owner of Photography Today.
PETALING JAYA: As Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak still reels from the Bersih 2.0 rally’s political aftershocks, a glittering new allegation has surfaced about his wife, Rosmah Mansor.The self-styled First Lady had allegedly come into possession of a diamond ring, worth a whopping US$24 million (RM73.48 million) sometime in April this year.A pro-Pakatan Rakyat blog called “Milo Suam” claimed that the ring was sent to Rosmah by the New York-based fine jewellers, Jacob & Co.
The blog claimed that the ring, identified as a “Natural Fancy Blue Gray Cushion Cut Diamond Ring” passed through the Kuala Lumpur International Airport customs and was cleared by a customs operations manager known as A Krishnan.Mupok Aku
Screenshots of the alleged customs computer displays also revealed that the ring did not have import duties imposed on it.
The same display also indicated the value of the ring to be US$24.4 million.
The story of the ring had also spread to many other pro-Pakatan blogs.
According to a Forbes website, the ring is a “VVS2 clarity diamond mounted on a platinum ring surrounded by 414 diamonds in a micro-pave setting (3.48 cts.).”
Meanwhile, “Milo Suam” questioned Najib’s rationale in allegedly purchasing such an expensive item for his wife.
“While you were screaming in pain from being beaten by a police baton… there was someone who was enjoying wealth that she did not earn,” read the blog.
The blog also asked if Najib had misused his powers in allocating RM111 million to Rosmah for her woman-and-children-oriented programme, Permata, in the 2011 Budget.
Jacob & Co has an outlet in Malaysia through a local branch known as Yafriro Celebrer Le Temps Sdn Bhd, located at the Starhill Gallery luxury shopping mall in Jalan Bukit Bintang.
When contacted, Yafriro refused to comment on the alleged ring puchase by Rosmah
