The wife of the prime minister, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, was also featured in the list. She was alleged to own a collection of luxury watches – Hublot BB Black Magis 114 Diamonds with specially ordered “tutti frutti” band (RM792,000) and Richard Mille Lady RM007 Diamond Cruncher (RM486,000).
Zahid is the second Umno leader to comment on Sanjeevan’s expose, after Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Ahmad Maslan took to Twitter on Tuesday to deny the allegations. He was claimed to have a Rolex Submariner luxury watch worth between RM30,000 and RM40,000. “Libellous. All this is the work of the opposition. I never owned a Rolex Submariner and have never worn it. Mine is only a regular watch,” he said in a tweet.
Sanjeevan, when contacted by The Malaysian Insider, defended his post and said that the deputy minister could lodge a police report if he felt it was libellous.
Sanjeevan said he would offer to accompany Ahmad Maslan to lodge the police report to allow the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission to investigate the matter. “Ahmad Maslan can lodge a police report and MACC can investigate.
I can accompany him. But is he daring enough to lodge a police report?” he asked. At the same time, Sanjeevan said the revelation on the watch collection owned by the country’s leaders has nothing to do with the organisation he is leading. “All the photographs we uploaded are through our findings but it has nothing to do with MyWatch.
“Because I am MyWatch chairman, of course people thought that it was under the organisation. But it was just me. I did it on my own because I uploaded it on my own Facebook,” said Sanjeevan. – The Malaysian Insider
