Rings of questions over Rosmah

Pakatan Rakyat lawmakers are asking where and how, if true, did the prime minister's wife get her alleged RM73 million ring.

PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister’s wife Rosmah Mansor’s alleged RM73 million diamond ring has left many in Pakatan Rakyat curious.
PAS Pokok Sena MP Mahfuz Omar asked how Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak got his hands on the funds needed to buy the ring.
“If the allegation is true, where did the money to buy this blue diamond come from?” he asked.

The ring was supposedly supplied by New York-based jewellers Jacob & Co. Pictures showing the ring moving through customs at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in April this year were released online this week.
The pictures, which first appeared on the pro-Pakatan blog Milo Suam, showed that the ring was last “inspected” by Rosmah.
Former PKR Youth leader Badrul Hisham Shaharin (also known as Chegubard) lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over the jewel.
Mahfuz said that Rosmah had no official governmental position, and would have to rely on her husband, Najib, for the purchase of the ring.
However, Mahfuz pointed out that Najib could not have saved enough to buy the ring from the combined salaries of his two portfolios – that of prime minister and finance minister.
“Is there another party involved?” Mahfuz asked, and wondered if the ring may have been a gift to the prime minister’s wife in exchange for some unknown government favour.
PKR Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar said that the onus of investigation rested with the MACC.
“I call upon the MACC to investigate this matter thoroughly, and verify claims made regarding the amounts involved,” she said.
Nurul also questioned Najib’s policies, introduced during his current stay as the prime minister, and connected them to Rosmah’s ring.
“Malaysians will be dealt a severe blow if policies introduced by the prime minister at our hour of need are merely to fulfil his wife’s personal desires,” she added.
When contacted, DAP MPs appeared guarded over the alleged ring saying that they wanted to wait for more confirmation on the matter before commenting.
