Rosmah Mansor’s Cybertroopers

Rosmah Mansor’s former special officer on Thursday revealed to the Kuala Lumpur High Court that bloggers like Papagomo, Parpukari and The Unspinners were paid to manage the former’s reputation and image from 2012 to 2018. 

Rizal Mansor said the trio were part of a long list of bloggers – he admitted he personally took care of 12 to 15 bloggers, 30 Facebook users and four team leaders – who were paid between RM1,500 and RM5,000 monthly from the RM100,000 cash he received from Rosmah monthly. 

When posed with a question regarding the source of the funds, the twenty-first prosecution witness said he was unaware that the RM100,000 given to him monthly by Najib Razak’s wife (left) to manage the cybertroopers was actually from a portion of the Prime Minister’s Department’s budget. 

According to Rizal (right), all he knew was that the cash was handed to him directly by Rosmah every month. 

Sigh, I wish I could have volunteered my services. To write crap on social media and in the process, get paid for it is easy money. I want in too lah.

The court proceedings refer to Rosmah’s trial where she has been charged with soliciting RM187.5 million and two counts of receiving bribes totalling RM6.5 million.
