Former First Lady Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor’s former special officer, Datuk Rizal Mansor, 46 has served as the 21st prosecution witness in a trial yesterday at the High Court. The former first lady is facing one charge of soliciting RM187.5 million and two counts of receiving bribes totalling RM6.5 million from Jepak Holdings ex-managing director Saidi Abang Samsudin.

Rizal said that bloggers such as ‘Papagomo’, ‘Parpukari’ and ‘The Unspinners’ were among the 40 people who were receiving money from Rosmah monthly. Their job was to portray her good image and reputation across social media platforms. The three names that were mentioned had received RM5,000 per month while 12 to 15 bloggers were paid RM3,000. 30 or so ‘Facebookers’ were paid RM2,000.

Rizal said that ever since he set up this ‘special team’ on 2012, he has been receiving RM100,000 in cash monthly as salary for the cyber troopers.

Rosmah’s lawyer said that the money was given to the First Lady from the Prime Minister’s office but not directly from her. Rizal said that every month starting from 2012 to 2018, he got the cash directly from her hands.

According to BERNAMA, Rosmah allegedly received bribes through Rizal for helping Jepak Holdings secure projects. One of the projects involved the maintenance and operation of diesel gen-sets for 369 Sarawak rural schools worth RM1.25 billion.
