Mungkin ramai sudah melihat video YouTube ini. Demi keadilan, ada baiknya kita memberi ruang kepada Rosmah Mansor, isteri Perdana Menteri, menjawab segala tohmahan di dalam video ini.

Sebuah laman portal berita,, berpeluang menemui Rosmah untuk mendapat penjelasan beliau mengenai segala tuduhan di dalam video klip ini. Jelapang siarkan temuramah tersebut yang dibuat di dalam bahasa Inggeris. (Maaf, tak sempat diterjemahkan). Berikut ialah temuramah tersebut:

Malaysia-Instinct: “Datin, can you confirm that that there is one, Rosmanuddin Mansor who is a subject in the video accusing you of murder?”

Rosmah: ‘Yes, Rosmanuddin is my brother. I have not seen the video, and am disappointed that these baseless accusations have been hurled to me.’

Can you describe your ties with the subjects in the video, namely Mohd Arshat – Your cousin, Induk Leha – An aunt, Datin Che Mah – Adopted Family and Neighbour and Ikmal Hisham – Datin Che Mah’s son?

I do not have any cousin named Mohd Arshat, or an aunt Induk Leha, Datin Che Mah or even Ikmal Hisham. They could be my mother’s neighbours, but if indeed they were, I wouldn’t know them as I never grew up in my mother’s kampong in Seri Menanti. From a very young age, I was taken to Rembau by my father’

We traced Rosmanuddin’s address to your house address in Langgak Duta. Can you elaborate on this?

‘As he is my adopted brother (adopted by my parents since he was 12 days old, as he was a baby handed to my parents in the estate clad in a batik cloth), I took it on myself to help him as much as I could. I loved him. My husband even loves his children as his own, so much so that we extended our home to him and his family due to his inability to offer the same to his family. In fact I even gave him an apartment behind the mall. I cannot explain these accusations, and I am deeply hurt that this has come from someone whom I consider very close to me’

Has Rosmanuddin profited from your name or Datuk Seri Najib’s position and why did he claim that he had to leave the country fearing your backlash?

‘I have never got myself involved in whatever accusations these people continue to hurl at me. And finding out that Rosmanuddin had in fact used our names, I continued to try to help him, but by manipulating our reputation, he has crossed the line. In his endeavours, he has also crossed many people and these people now know that my name as well as Datuk Seri’s has been made used off. I cannot help him now and have told him so.’

In the video, you have been accused of abandoning your children from your previous marriage, what do you have to say to this?

‘(Heavy sigh) Rosmanuddin is responsible for spreading these lies, and this has caused a wedge between my daughter and I. I do not wish to elaborate on this as it involves the very people I love and respect. All I can say is that it is untrue (about my abandoning my children). A mother never leaves her own. I am sorry, but I think I have tried very much to help you do your job (in answering these questions) and I hope you respect that these are very personal matters, and very disturbing developments to me. Thank you.’
